Hoffman Hall Sober Living Homes


Hoffman HallThe Basics

Hoffman Hall Sober Living Homes provide affordable sober living for men in recovery at three locations in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  At Hoffman Hall, clients are required to be over 18 and willing to work on long-term and short-term goals, designed for their rebuilding better lives. The men are encouraged to attend 12-step programs and church services and become art of the community that exists between the houses.

Accommodations and Amenities

Hoffman Hall accommodates up to 32 men at three houses throughout Albuquerque. One location is an apartment complex with four apartments, housing three men each. The other locations are houses, where men share double-occupancy rooms with the belief that alcoholics and addicts are a lonely breed, and that having a roommate forces interaction with another human being and lessens feelings of isolation.

Since most of the men get food stamps, they purchase their own groceries and prepare their own meals in fully equipped kitchens. Amenities in all the houses include free utilities, Wi-Fi and flat screen TVs with cable. Each residence has a live-in house manager.

Rules and Regulations

Hoffman Hall accepts clients with various levels of sobriety, except for those requiring detox. Those individuals are provided with referrals to local hospitals or rehabs. Hoffman Hall also does not accept sex offenders or gang members into their homes. Residents have a 10:30 pm curfew from Sundays to Thursday, and a 12:30 am curfew on Fridays and Saturdays. They must attend at least three AA/NA meetings a week and get a sponsor. The staff administers random drug tests during the week and maintains a zero tolerance policy towards residents who test positive.

The clients, along with their case managers, focus on six core goals that include working on physical, spiritual and emotional health, helping the environment, having fun in the surrounding community and pursuing intellectual goals such as going to school or seeking employment. Besides working a 12-step program, the men are encouraged go to church or pursue other religious activities that enhance their spirituality.

Clients work on their emotional health by going to required outpatient counseling at Pathways Inc., a substance abuse treatment center which also provides dual diagnosis support. Treatment cost is based on a sliding scale fee for those without insurance and Pathways accepts Medicaid. This is in addition to the 30-day cost for a bed at Hoffman Hall, which is $400, not including a $50 processing fee.


Clients participate in a plethora of community events including barbeques, hikes, wild life adventures, fishing and other activities promoting a sense of family among the house members.

In Summary

At Hoffman Hall, men are allowed opportunities for growth and a chance to rebuild better lives while staying clean and sober. This may not be a good fit for those who just want a sober place to crash without a lot of structure. Hoffman Hall provides much more than affordable and safe sober living, they encourage men to work on all aspects of their lives, including their emotional health, which is vital for those new to recovery.

  1. “The men are encouraged to attend 12-step programs and church services and become art of the community that exists between the houses.” Trust me the Hoffman House is not a pillar of art for the ABQ community.

  2. overcrowded and concerning conditions. KRQE news recently reported on this business with several of the neighbors also expressing there concerns. I am not a neighbor but someone who was looking for sober living. The picture provided is likely not an actual location at this current time or not a house I toured. Picture an over crowded two story apartment shut in by barb wire fences literally with clients sprawled out in the house even during a walk through. That main location is in the ghetto area of ABQ called the “war zone”. The other home toured was in a slightly nicer house but was using a living room area sectioned off with blankets to house a total of 11 people including one other room. In general the larger house should not room any more then 6 or 7 people based on the head count for all the Oxford houses the exact same size in the entire ABQ area. There are over 10 Oxford Houses in that city. Who wrote this review as it is poorly written and riddled with errors? Not normal for most of the reviews I have read on this website.
