SOBA Recovery Center – Resources
 
If you have recently received a DUI charge and are looking for a sober living, please call us today. Our sober living facility can be a helpful tool in preventing you from receiving another DUI and in possibly avoiding harsher penalties.
We have observed that DUI outcomes are usually most successful when the client has some type of familiarity with drug or alcohol treatment, or when sober living services are used as a continuation of care. At SOBA, we offer a variety of services that take into consideration all walks of life. If you or someone you love has a problem with drugs or alcohol and is in need of a sober living, residential treatment, day treatment, or an outpatient treatment facility that includes court, DUI, and assistance with other drug and alcohol related charges, please call us today for a free consultation and for additional information.
We are also grateful to work with court advocates and lawyers who work to help people with their court issues. If you are a court advocate or lawyer specializing in this, please don't hesitate to contact us if we can help in any way.

SOBA provides a specialized and person-specific approach to working with the professionals each resident would like to include in their recovery journey. If you are working with a client that you believe could benefit from any of the services SOBA provides, we want you to know that you can continue to be a part of your client's treatment. We create individual treatment plans and schedules that work to incorporate what is already working well for that individual, which can include doctors already integral in that person's recovery.
It is critical to the recovery process that the individual gains a complete understanding of the concept that recovering drug addicts and alcoholics have underlying issues and problems that are a major contribution to why they drink and/or abuse drugs. We would like you be a part of this process. Please let us know what we can do to help.
