Live Free Recovery Residential Living
At Live Free Recovery Services, our mission is to help people recover from drug and alcohol addictions. We provide multiple paths to recovery, including 12-step programs and a Medicated Assisted Treatment (MAT) philosophy. We believe that by living in one of our sober homes, working through the 12 Steps, you can restore your wellbeing. While we do not provide MAT services, we allow anyone using this method as part of their recovery journey to live in our sober homes.
All of our sober living homes focus on the 12 Steps that originated from the Alcoholics Anonymous program. The 12 Steps have proven to be incredibly effective for helping both addiction and a person’s overall well-being through its mentally, physically, and spiritually centered approach.
Choosing the right location for your recovery process is important for many reasons. You want a location that’s convenient, where you feel accepted and connected to both staff and other residents, and that provides the services you need.
