How to Start a Sober Living Home

What is a Sober Living Home?

Our main objective is to help entrepreneurs realize their goal of starting a lucrative sober living home. Although the income from a for-profit sober living home is substantial, it should never be a primary motive and purpose. Money needs to be at the bottom of the priority list. We teach that the well-being of clients entering a sober living home is the number one priority. The goal is to help clients regain a purposeful life away from drugs and alcohol.

If your passion is to do good in the community, have a property that can become a sober living home, and have at least a hundred thousand dollars, you may be able to see your plans through with our assistance and program for success.
