Historically, Denver Colorado has not had robust sober living options. Whereas the east coast has had a system of affordable sober living for over 30 years, Denver has only recently seen major improvements in Sober living options. In 2022 Denver sober living finally has grown to a stage where those looking for help can find it.
Sober living, Recovery Residences, Sober Living Environments (SLE’s) are, “organizations that provide safe housing, supportive, structured living conditions for people exiting drug and alcohol rehab facilities.” These organizations generally provide alcohol and drug free environments for those attempting to remain clean and sober. Sober Living programs have a plethora of amenities that can assist those in the recovery process. From farms, to horses, to sober activities and community building, sober living provides options and supports to those in the recovery process.
