Recovery Residences in Atlanta & Charlotte
When transitioning from addiction treatment to a life in recovery, residents are often unprepared for the stresses and challenges waiting for them in the outside world. The right sober living or transitional recovery residence can help minimize the stress of leaving treatment and offer individuals in recovery a better chance at long-term sobriety. However, not all recovery residences offer the same level of care. An effective recovery residence provides more than an alcohol- and drug-free environment; it provides a safe haven where residents can continue to work on their recovery with the structure, support and accountability needed to firmly establish their lives in sobriety.

Our Recovery Residences are Located in:
Having a Safe Haven
An effective sober living recovery residence offers a safe, structured and supportive environment where residents can continue their journey to long-term recovery. Offering high-quality ongoing therapy, limited independence and a substance-free home provides reassurance to residents that they are valued and worth the effort that it takes to stay sober. Additionally, living among peers who are struggling with similar issues often creates an atmosphere of loving accountability, support and understanding.
Maintaining a temptation-free recovery residence is a critical element of successful transitional living, as is ensuring that residents are continuing with their therapeutic medications. To ensure a drug-free and safe residence, sober living homes must have a drug-testing policy in place and a licensed professional available to monitor the intake of therapeutic medication. Safeguarding the sobriety and well-being of their residents is the most important responsibility of a recovery residence.
Encouraging Dignity and Independence
The ideal sober living home helps residents in recovery feel independent, but not as if they are on their own during this very difficult time in their lives. Offering increasing independence to residents who are making positive choices encourages them to continue doing so and helps them build the confidence needed to eventually live life with complete independence.
