Sober Houses

The mission of Lowell House's Sober Houses is to provide a physically and emotionally safe, secure, and respectful home environment to foster an alcohol and drug-free lifestyle for all members. Each Sober Home is a group of individuals who share a common desire to stay clean and sober, a commitment to honoring the house rules and participating in the house decision-making process. Sober housing is an option that offers individuals peer-to-peer support to maintain long-term recovery.
