Based on a recent survey, 60.1% of people living in the U.S., from age 12 and above use one type of substance or more. Substance use has a serious impact not only on users, but also their family members, friends and society in general.

For these reasons we founded the Lighthouse Sober Living House Denver, to empower individuals on their road to recovery and provide them the help they need in a safe and professional environment, combined with proper aftercare which is essential to complete the rehab treatment.

Our Sober Living House in Denver is a safe and supportive base that allows its residents to live comfortably and sustain their sobriety. Below you can view photos of our Sober Living House.

What is a Sober Living House?

A Denver sober living house is a home dedicated to provide a drug-free and alcohol-free surrounding for its residents who are recovering from substance use and addictions. While staying in the sober living house, residents benefit from strong peer support, empowerment, learn effective science-based recovery principles, take personal responsibility and maintain their sobriety for the long term as they return to their own home and resume normal life.

Our Sober Living House in Denver is in a quiet, peaceful area in Denver, Colorado. Residents recovering from drug and alcohol addictions can enjoy a welcoming and relaxing place which allows them to stay focused on their treatment and rehab goals.

In addition to decreasing substance use rates, sober living houses have been proven to increase employment rates, and improve coping and communication skills.

Finding a Sober Living House That’s Right for You

Sober Living Denver

Not all sober living houses are the same. Some may not be a good fit for you, and some may even be unsafe and unhealthy for your recovery, risking the progress you have made during your treatment.  It is important to choose an organized and well managed facility with a good environment and practices. Here are some factors you should be looking for:

  • Proper house rules
  • Regular testing
  • Keeping records
  • Professional and experienced staff
  • Safe, clean and well-maintained facility

 The location is obviously important as well. You want to stay in a home that is located in a safe area, ideally close to your workplace, school, public transportation, etc. While being close to your hometown, family and friends can be a factor, in some cases if your home and neighborhood environment had a negative influence on you and one of the causes to your addiction, staying in a sober living house a bit farther away can be beneficial for your recovery, avoiding exposure to triggers and negative memories until you feel ready and strong enough.

How Effective Are Sober Houses?

According to many studies conducted over many years regarding the effect of sober living houses on recovering residents, the results were very positive, with a significant improvement in many areas, including mental health,  happiness, family relationships, employment, education and more.  The studies also found that the time spent living in a sober living house also has an effect, as some leave too early which lowers their chances to stay sober. People who remained abstinent for less than one year relapsed two-thirds of the time. People who remained sober for a year or more relapsed less than half the time. People who abstained for five years remained sober and avoided relapse 85% of the time.
