After completing primary treatment for substance misuse, it can seem overwhelming to leave the safety of your NorthStar therapists and recovery community. Our sober living program for women is designed to ease this transition, providing independence with “guardrails” that include sober accountability partners, monitored drug testing, and 12-step group participation. In the context of a sober home, women of all ages build friendships, enjoy recreation, find respite from trauma, and grow into a life of flourishing sobriety.
Why Choose Gender-Specific Sober Living?
Male-female relationships can be complicated. Women-only sober communities allow residents to focus on continued recovery without the unnecessary distraction of co-ed friendships or dating scenarios. Single-gender living environments also enable women to be vulnerable, express themselves more fully and work through concerns they would not be comfortable mentioning in a mixed group.
