Sober Living through Twelve-Step Programming


We wholeheartedly believe in the power of twelve-step programming as defined by Alcoholics Anonymous, implementing this design in all of our sober living homes with programming for addicts as well.

With a 75-year track record of helping individuals find success in their journey to recovery, this model is in our opinion one of the greatest tools to inspire hope and confidence while freeing us from the root causes and circumstances of our original defeat.

Following this design, many of our residents are able to enjoy ongoing sobriety, gaining the pride and self-confidence needed to help others in their situation to overcome this chronic, fatal disease.


We’ve Been There, and We’ll Be There for You

The Sanctuary Recovery Foundation was founded by recovered alcoholics and addicts. We know what you’re going through, not because of some book or from secondhand experience. We’ve been where you are today. We know it’s tough and can sometimes feel hopeless. This is personal. We offer a living environment that encourages reciprocal support and self-confidence among all who live in our houses and throughout all of our households. Changes in your lifestyle programming that you will be experiencing have been proven to be successful by the accomplishments of our residents and from our own experience on the road to recovery. Our residential houses are free of offices or landlord supervision while fostering peer support and accountability.

We welcome you and are ready to support you as you build the strength and faith to succeed.

More Information

The Sanctuary Recovery Foundation does not provide Transitional Homes or Halfway Houses.

Local municipalities define Transitional Housing as a facility that provides supervision and/or detention for residents who are making the transition from institutional to community living. This classification includes pre-parole detention facilities and halfway houses for juvenile delinquents and adult offenders. This classification also includes overnight shelters for the homeless and emergency shelters during crisis intervention for victims of crime, abuse, or neglect.

The Sanctuary Recovery Foundation does not provide these services or provide housing for these residents. Our homes offer a residential experience where all tenants live in a family type setting. The kitchens, living rooms, dining areas and yards are all shared as they would be for any roommate situation in a rental home. Like many landlords who don’t allow smoking or pets, we as your landlord find it important that there not be any drugs or alcohol consumption in our homes.
