Sober Living

While in recovery with Stairway Resource Center, individuals are encouraged to stay in sober living homes where they can stay when not attending groups, therapy, and other aspects of the program. Stairway Recovery offers individuals a gender specific house to live in while in recovery and beyond.

Stairway Recovery provides a structure while individuals in recovery learn how to maintain a sober lifestyle. Having an affordable, gender specific, and 12-step focused environment allows the individual to focus on what is most important – their recovery.

By partnering with Stairway Recovery, Stairway Resource Center can extend our outpatient services. Sober living affords individuals enrolled in our program the option of staying in a safe, affordable, and supportive environment.

The road to recovery can seem intimidating, especially when it feels like you’re on your own. Fortunately, you don’t have to traverse it by yourself. At Stairway Recovery Center, we provide you the support you deserve as you overcome substance use disorder and work towards the best version of you.

Gender Specific Recovery Housing

Stairway Recovery provides separate, safe living quarters for men and women on their respective journeys to recovery. Research has found that gender-specific homes can help immensely for those in recovery for many reasons.

Builds Community

Gender-specific living arrangements are incredibly beneficial when it comes to building community. While in recovery, residents are in one of the most vulnerable states possible. Finding community within recovery and building a genuine support system for the right reasons can help you create a durable foundation that will last throughout your journey.

Relieves Some of the Pressure

Sharing how you feel isn’t always easy, especially when you’re encountering new people in an unfamiliar setting. Group therapy, openly sharing, and being vulnerable can be incredibly intimidating when residents first come to sober living. Gender-specific homes can help relieve some of the pressure that comes with experiencing these situations in group settings.

Although women are generally known for being more willing to share, it can still be extremely difficult to open up about past, potentially painful experiences in mixed company. For men, willingness to be vulnerable or express their emotions is already low, especially around women. Gender-specific living can help to increase both men’s and women’s willingness to be open with their group and express how they feel.

Helps You to Focus on You

The most important part of recovery is prioritizing yourself and your mental and physical health. Finding healthy coping mechanisms, learning to be comfortable on your own, and emphasizing a healthy, active lifestyle are all vital components of recovery. Without gender-specific housing, it can be easier to become distracted by issues like potential relationships, prior traumatic experiences, personal discomfort, and more. Gender-specific housing can eliminate these distractions for many people.

What Residents Can Expect

Stairway Recovery takes pride in providing living spaces to make you feel comfortable and supported throughout your recovery. If you or a loved one decides to become a resident at a Stairway Recovery sober living home, you can expect the following.

Group Living

A critical thing to understand about gender-specific sober living quarters is that it is a group living setting. This simply means you’ll be sharing a house with other people of the same gender who are working through similar issues as you. Living with others can help you build a sense of community, establish bonds between residents, and provide an opportunity for accountability—all of which are beneficial during recovery from substance use disorder.

A Safe, Comfortable Environment

Stairway Recovery’s priority is to create a safe, comfortable environment where residents are inspired to heal. Homes are built with residents in mind, providing ample space for personal time and relaxation as well as group activities. During recovery, feelings of discomfort and being unsafe can prove distracting from the work of healing. Stairway Recovery’s goal is to create a space where residents not only feel comfortable but feel encouraged to work on themselves.

Shared Household Chores

Just as if it was your own home, you are responsible for working with others to handle basic household duties. From doing the dishes to vacuuming the floors, you and your housemates will split responsibilities to make sure your living areas remain safe, healthy, and clean. Shared household duties are important because they help residents feel like they’re still at home and in
