Planning to Pay for Sober Living Cost
Many who need sober living accommodations may never seek this option due to the assumption that sober homes are unaffordable. Do not let cost deter you from exploring the many sober living options that exist across the cost spectrum. Because there are so many different types of sober living residences available, the monthly costs will vary significantly, from free to exorbitant, something for every budget. Factors such as private rooms versus shared rooms or additional services provided can significantly impact the cost of sober living housing. Keep in mind that the monthly costs may include room, meals, and usually transportation to meetings or appointments, costs that you would incur regardless of where you are residing.
Depending on financial need, free or low cost sober living is an option, so never rule out that you can utilize sober living arrangements due to lack of or low income. For those who not meet the threshold for subsidized sober living, selecting basic accommodations will likely fit your budget and still offer a safe and supportive sober environment. For some, luxury sober living communities are available that provide deluxe accommodations and amenities at a much higher cost. Finally, sober professional services offer sober companions who can provide constant protection from drugs and alcohol up to 24/7 in the privacy of your home, however these services come at the highest end of the sober living spectrum.
Free or Low Cost Sober Living
State-subsidized sober living may be available once it has been proven that you are unable to pay for sober housing.
