Frequently Asked Questions
What is sober living?
Sober living is a residential environment where individuals recovering from addiction to alcohol and drugs can live in community with like-minded housemates. To that end, the residence is alcohol and drug free and each house member participates in its upkeep and operation. As housemates, they support each other in recovery and hold each other accountable in attending to daily chores and obligations.
How Much does sober living cost?
At Stepping Stones we charge $675 – $750 per month for rent as well as a one-time $25 admin fee. In addition, there is a $275 – $500 sober deposit which will be returned to you if you stay sober during your stay with us.
Who manages the houses?
Each Stepping Stones sober home has a on-site house manager whose responsibility is to ensure the well being of the house occupants. All with at least one year of sobriety, the house managers show a commitment to working a 12-step program in their daily lives, and demonstrate through their actions that they can lead by example.
How are residents held accountable?
Each resident is drug tested at least once per week for a wide array of substances. In addition, residents rooms are searched regularly for substances and other paraphernalia.
