Boulder Sober Living Homes

NorthStar Transitions LLC works closely with Boulder Sober Living to provide sober living environments to clients participating in our programs.

NorthStar Transitions clients and guarantors are required to enter into a lease agreement with Boulder Sober Living separate from the services agreement entered into with NorthStar Transitions. NorthStar Transitions program clients have the option of living in a Boulder Sober Living home and also may choose to live in their own residence.

Boulder Sober Living operates several sober living homes in the City of Boulder. Each of their sober living homes is centrally located in the City of Boulder within walking distance of the NorthStar Transitions clinical office, the University of Colorado, grocery stores, gyms, etc. All of the Boulder sober living homes are located on the bus line to provide easy transport to downtown Boulder and the Pearl Street Mall.

Boulder Sober Living homes are newly renovated and updated. All sober living homes are fully furnished including all cookware, utensils etc. All utilities, cable and wifi are included at each Boulder Sober Living home. Each client is provided an $80.00 grocery card each week and an unlimited pass to the local recreation center. Clients may begin in a shared room and transition to a private room with seniority based on availability.

Boulder Sober Living clients are required to participate in a house meeting each week and to perform household chores throughout the week such as cleaning the kitchen, living room, snow shoveling etc.

A house manager checks on Boulder Sober Living clients several times each day to help ensure clients adherence to house rules. The house manager also enforces curfew and facilitates weekly house meetings.
