J and J Sober Living offers transitional housing to men and women who are in the early stages of their recovery in Gilbert and Chandler, Arizona. The clients reside in upscale accommodations while attending regular 12-step meetings and preparing to return to their communities with a strong foothold in their new life of sobriety.
Accommodations and Amenities
There are two sober living houses, one for men and the other for women. They are two story, spacious homes that can accommodate up to eight clients. The bedrooms are large and fully furnished with full beds, dressers and nightstands. The kitchens are fully stocked and all linens are provided by the facility. The entire home has Wifi, and in the living room there is a TV that comes with cable. Additionally, there is a house computer that all clients have access to, and a washer/dryer on site. These houses are situated in residential neighborhoods that are close to public transportation and local 12-step meetings.
Rules and Regulations
Any incoming clients have to enter into the program clean and sober for 30 days, and be between the ages of 18 and 65, in their first year of sobriety. During the intake all potential clients are given a drug screen and asked about their medical history and current medications. Within the first two weeks of living at the facility clients have to get a full time job, volunteer or attend school for at least 40 hours per week. In addition, they have to attend a minimum of four AA or NA meetings and obtain a sponsor. At the beginning of the program, clients have to have their meeting attendance signed off.
The program requires a minimum of three month’s stay, with the opportunity to extend up to a year. Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is overseen by staff, and referrals are provided for clients who are seeking an outpatient program while living in the sober residences.
Initially there is a curfew that clients have to adhere to, and as they move through their program they get more privileges and overnight passes. Daily chores need to be completed and room checks happen regularly. There are no overnight guests allowed at the homes and no one who isn’t sober is allowed on the premises.
Depending on the housing placement, clients have access to a swimming pool, fire pit, and game room with a pool table.
J and J Sober Living is a standard, structured living situation for those who are new to recovery. There are rules that every client needs to follow, and if those are broken they are asked to leave. This program requires accountability and a willingness to participate in one’s own recovery. This is a good place to start off living a sober life.
