A Better Place Transition Housing is a sober living facility for men located in Surrey, British Columbia. A Better Place has been in operation since 2009 and emphasizes teamwork and peer support. Men must have completed prior treatment and demonstrated a commitment to sobriety before entering the home.
Accommodations and Amenities
A Better Place is situated in a residential neighborhood in Surrey and treats up to 20 men at a time. Residents share a bedroom with at least one other roommate in a clean, modest home that features four living rooms with wide-screen TVs. The home is a five-minute walk from the King George Sky Train and shopping and recovery meetings are also within walking distance.
Rules and Regulations
Men must be working, actively looking for employment or enrolled in school while living at A Better Place. They have rotating chore assignments and are responsible for their own cooking and food shopping, but many choose to pool time and money and cook communally.
A Better Place encourages men to focus on the 12 steps while in residence, and they must attend at least four AA/NA meetings each week. Random drug screenings are also required. After two weeks in residence, clients can be granted passes to go on overnight visits home. There is no minimum time commitment, and clients can stay for up to one year.
A Better Place’s house manager takes an active role in making sure clients are healthy and moving forward in their recovery. The manager also helps residents access case management services, medical appointments and on-going substance abuse treatment.
For nearly a decade, A Better Place Transition Housing has helped men in recovery learn independent living skills and build their sober support network. Conveniently located near the Sky Train and recovery meeting locations, A Better Place is well-situated to give residents autonomy, work opportunities and a recovery community.
