At Sober Living Houston, we are committed to providing affordable extended care sober living for men struggling with addiction. As a 12-Step based program, our mission is to instill a set of principles which allow our clients to find freedom from drugs and alcohol.
We understand that recovery goes far beyond getting clean and sober. We believe in using a structured accountability system to encourage each of our clients to take small steps each day toward regaining a sense of purpose and independence.
Who We Are
Sober Living Houston was founded in 2009 by Michael Hubacek. 20 years ago, Hubacek was involved in a drunk driving accident in which two people were killed. Out of this tragic accident, Hubacek realized he wanted to do everything he could to prevent others from making the same mistakes and help those struggling at the hands of alcohol and substance abuse.
Over the past decade, Sober Living Houston has developed a solid culture of recovery. That culture is based on a foundation for life-long sober friendships, building a sense of community, and learning to live life on life’s terms—free from the use of drugs, alcohol, or other forms of instant-gratification.
What is Sober Living?
Sober living homes are group homes for people new in sobriety. While less structured than residential treatment centers, sober living homes work to provide accountability for residents as they learn how to adjust to life without drugs or alcohol. Many addicts enter sober living homes as a safe and structured way to transition from inpatient treatment to living independently.
The primary goal of sober living homes is to help the newly sober learn to live life free from drugs and alcohol. Addiction causes suffering addicts to neglect their responsibilities. Sober Living Houston expects residents to learn to be responsible for their behavior; this includes finding and maintaining employment, paying rent on time, and being a productive member of society.
While rules differ from home to home, the common rule of all sober living homes is the requirement for all residents to maintain sobriety. Upon move in, residents agree to the rules set in place. Violation of the rules result in consequences ranging from writing essays on the rule broken, increased chores, to ultimately discharge from the home. These rules are in place to promote personal responsibility, accountability, and to ensure the maintenance of a safe and healthy recovery environment for all residents.
If you or someone you love is battling drug or alcohol addiction, sober living may be a positive step toward a solution. For many people sober living homes are a critical component in establishing and maintaining long term sobriety and productively re-integrating into society.
