Sober Living Homes
A sober living home is a great option that provides a positive drug & alcohol free environment to help you stabilize and normalize your life while making the transition into freedom from addiction. True North Recovery Inc sober living homes exist for this very reason.
A Different Kind of Support
Our housing program is a supportive, structured, monitored and accountable sober living home.
At this time we operate three recovery residences for both adult men and women. These are beautiful homes in nice neighborhoods which helps us create a better atmosphere for our clients.
Our housing differs from traditional sober living because it is a program developed to help an individual gain skill in a supportive, structed environment so that one can successfully transition to independence in recovery.
Our homes provide a space, while in treatment, to develop life skills that will enable you to lead a rewarding drug/alcohol free life.
