Sober Men Living


The Basics

Sober Men Living operates 10 transitional living homes in the historic town of Kennesaw, Georgia—seven for men and three for women. The program at Sober Men Living follows the principles of 12-step methodology with an emphasis on personal accountability through recovery. The newly-renovated Alpha House has high-end amenities and provides a pleasant and structured sober living environment for men who are new in recovery.

Accommodations and Amenities

Male newcomers to the program stay in the Alpha House for the first 90 days of their residence and then may be moved to one of the more “advanced” houses. Sober Men Living has both single- and double-occupancy rooms. Residents share common dining, family and living rooms. They cook for themselves and share in household chores.

The homes are also outfitted with new furnishings and have high-definition TVs  with cable and HBO. Other amenities include Wi-Fi and on-site laundry machines.

Rules and Regulations

Sober Men Living has contracted with an outside provider to offer a customized Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for those who need it. Residents can live at a Sober Men Living house while attending an IOP staffed with MFTs, CSWs and certified addiction counselors.

Residents meet with one of the houses’ employees for an hour a week to check up on their progress in terms of their sobriety, employment and personal relationships. They are expected to live a 12-step lifestyle, which means attending at least seven AA or NA meetings a week, refraining from using drugs and alcohol and submitting to random testing.

SML is in the process of implementing a six-month, structured life skills program that will cover budgeting, relationships, and balancing work and recovery.


Sober Men Living encourages Big Book study, relapse prevention work and life skills training. The “fun in recovery” component of its program includes sober group outings to a movie or a bowling alley, as well as baseball games, rock-climbing excursions and white-water rafting trips. The outings sometimes involve residents of all four houses.

In Summary

Sober Men Living is much more than just a stopover sober living to camp out in for a few months. The emphasis on structure and rules may make it a great choice for a fresh-from-rehab young man who needs some peer support on the road to independence and recovery. The recommended minimum length of stay at the house is six months, although some men stay up to a year. The cost of the initial stay includes living, one-on-one coaching, job placement assistance and transportation for the first few weeks.

    Sober Mens Living has helped my son become the man I always knew he was. The counselors & all employees are so very helpful & genuinely caring. You have to want to be sober & they will give you the tools,support, & knowledge to stay that way. I have to say to me they are all angels.When my son was there his counselor stayed in touch with me,(as we are out of state) every week to let me know how he was doing. Thanks to everyone who played a part in helping my son stay sober.I would recommend this sober house to any addict who needs more than 30 days & in my head ,most of them do.Thanks to all !!!! Kudos to SML !!!!!!

  2. I went to sober men living in 2016 and was there for a year. The sense of brotherhood with the community and the staff was huge for me early on. I still talk to my old recovery coach on a regular basis, he continues to be a help in my spiritual growth. My time there flew by and I’m extremely grateful for the friendships I still have with clients I got sober with and staff members. I would recommend Sober men’s living to anyone it’s an amazing place !!

    Sober Living Men is a fraud. All they want is your money. My son who tested positive for H was admitted that same day where they were delighted to take our $ 1200. After taking my sons personal cell phone, the asst house manager decided to gave him his personal cell phone . My son called his source who picked him up and off he went. When he returned they correctly decided to kick him out, but they did so at midnight. His “Plug” or “source” picked him up at 1Am in the morning. How do we know? When we showed up the next day to pick him up the house manager gave us the phone numbers of whom he had called and left with. We were shocked at the lack of professionalism but the common sense to kick a drug addict out at midnight on the coldest night of the year and with his source no less. My Son overdosed but lived. Montana is a complete fraud and liar. Go to Orange Calf for the best treatment centers.
