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.
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.
