About Sober Surroundings

About Us

Sober Surroundings is a sober community dedicated to providing affordable sober living.

Living in one of our sober houses aids the sometimes difficult transition of reentering the community as newly sober person.

Here at Sober Surroundings we provide rooms in fully furnished houses for working class people who need a completely sober living environment.

With locations around the Boston area Sober Surroundings homes are ideal for anyone looking to maintain their sobriety by living in the safe, comfortable environment of a sober house.

Sober Surroundings homes are zero tolerance. This means in order to enter a home you must arrive and remain sober and commit to frequent weekly drug screenings while living in our homes. Sober Surroundings zero tolerance also means just one positive test result and you are immediately discharged from the house. This policy is necessary to protect the rest of the individuals in the home.

Sober Surroundings is committed to making the recovery and safety of our tenants our number one priority.
