Men’s sober living homes can be vital sources of support for men who are working to gain a solid foothold in early recovery.  

At our men’s sober living homes, we help adult men who have struggled with addiction to alcohol and other drugs. Our structured program gives each person the time, structure, and guidance they need to develop effective relapse prevention skills and prepare for a successful transition back to their families, careers, and communities.

The Importance of Men's Sober Living

To fully appreciate the importance of men’s sober living, it is essential to understand how these homes combine structure and accountability with increased opportunities for personal responsibility.

Depending on the nature of each person’s struggle with substance abuse, their recovery journey may include several types and levels of care, including detoxification, inpatient treatment, and residential care. While men are receiving care at one of these levels, they are shielded from many of the stresses and distractions of daily life. This time in treatment can be a valuable opportunity to address significant personal issues and begin to develop effective recovery skills.

At some point, though, men who have struggled with addiction need to transition out of care and put their newly developed skills to the test in real-world environments. For some men, a temporary residence in a sober living home is the ideal next step after completing treatment. While they’re residing in a sober living home, men can continue to build on the progress they made in treatment, receive guidance from trained professionals, and share support with others who are at a similar stage in their recovery journey. At Creekside Recovery Residences, we provide an effective approach to helping those who have either just attended a detox or inpatient stay or just looking to get back on their feet.

Substance Abuse in Men

Substance abuse and addiction among men are prevalent problems in the United States and throughout the world. 

For example, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) has reported that nearly 30% of men age 18 and over have engaged in binge drinking in the previous 30 days. NIAAA research also indicates that 9 million men in the U.S. meet the criteria for a diagnosis of alcohol use disorder (which is the clinical term for alcoholism).  

Also, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports that the abuse of prescription medications and illicit drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, and heroin is more common among men than among women. The rates of emergency room visits and deaths due to drug overdoses are also higher among men than among women, according to NIDA.
