WHAT IS SOBER LIVING?
Sober living is a residential environment where individuals recovering from addiction to alcohol and drugs can live in community with like-minded housemates. To that end, the residence is alcohol and drug free and each house member participates in its upkeep and operation. As housemates, they support each other in recovery and hold each other accountable in attending to daily chores and obligations.
WHAT IS SPERO RECOVERY SOBER LIVING?
Located in the Greater Denver Metro Area, Spero Recovery is headed by a clinical director, and all of our staff and house managers have recovered from either alcohol or drug addiction. As such, you will be surrounded by recovered brothers and sisters who “get it”.
We believe that sober living is a vital stage in the recovery of an individual from addiction, and that safety, accountability, cleanliness, and honesty are cornerstones to sober living and recovery. As such, we provide residences designed to combat the isolation that feeds addiction and leads to relapse.
Our residents not only share responsibilities in our sober living homes, but also provide vitally important emotional support and encouragement to each other. By actively fostering a community of housemates, such support comes naturally and spontaneously.
The goal of Spero Recovery is to foster strength, courage, and life skills so that, after leaving, you are able to live in hope and freedom with active addiction firmly in your past.
