Why Sober Roommates Matter
After treatment for addiction, a support system is essential.

However, living situations can create unique challenges, particularly if you live in a city with a high cost of living.

Often, people in need of a place to live after inpatient treatment will turn to Craigslist or other websites that may not enable them to easily find a supportive sober living environment.

To help address this problem, London Becs has been involved with a unique organization, Roommates in Sobriety. 

This pioneering online community helps connect people looking to live with sober roommates and addresses a basic need of people in recovery.
