The Sober Living Network is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting excellence in the operation and management of sober living and other community recovery support resources.

Over 25,000 men and women in Southern California find safety and support in the Network's quality sober living homes each year. Recent university research has shown sober living to be tremendously effective in promoting long-term recovery from alcoholism and addiction.

These and similar studies suggest that sober living should play a prominent role in publicly supported efforts to combat the social toll of addiction and drug dependency. However sober living is virtually ignored by most governmental sources of funding.

UNITE to Face Addiction

Great summary of leading research on sober living homes

These are studies by the Alcohol Research Group, one of the nation's leading addiction research organizations. The Network and many of our homes have collaborated in some of these studies. See this page for a summary of their work and publications.

More papers will be added to the page soon. As the sumaries indicate, research continues on the effectiveness of sober living homes, and demonstrate its value in promoting recovery outcomes.
