structured sober living

rehabilitation overview

Choice House offers a 12-Step based, enhanced addiction recovery sober living community for men who have completed our primary treatment program, another treatment program, or who are appropriate candidates for structured Boulder addiction recovery and sober living. Just blocks away from downtown Louisville in Boulder County, Colorado – within walking distance to shopping and bus lines – Choice House offers variable lengths of stay, with a minimum 120-day commitment.

At Choice House, clients are given the opportunity to practice using recovery tools and resources learned in primary treatment in the safety and structure of a Boulder addiction recovery community, a step designed to ease the eventual transition from rehabilitation to sober living. Individuals who reticulate to our structured sober living program spend time in weekly evening support groups as well as one-on- one therapy sessions. They also participate in bi-weekly process and art therapy groups. During the day, they are active in our community working, attending 12-Step meetings and building their recovery capital. Residents benefit from resume assistance and the insights of job coaching from our support staff to ensure a successful job search.

Choice House has 18 total beds available at six different homes neighboring each other. As a Boulder addiction recovery center for men, we do our best to consider placement only for those who are unwaveringly dedicated to their ongoing success in sober living and rehabilitation. During their stay, we work closely with referral sources to make sure each individual’s discharge and aftercare plans are made to ensure ongoing support throughout the journey of sobriety.

"As parents of a recovering addict, we can’t print enough positive comments about the Choice House program and the care rendered to our son. David was at a crossroads in his life and needed a positive experience following a 90-day stay at an inpatient rehab center. Choice House provided a caring, nurturing safe haven, as well as a dedicated professional staff capable of helping to guide our son through this difficult transition. We are delighted with the experience David had at Choice House and have recommended this program to other parents."

"Choice House has been instrumental in my recovery. The program provided me with the opportunity for a smoother transition from treatment to independent living… Also, I have met some truly inspiring people among the other residents. I don’t know where I would be today if I hadn’t utilized this amazing opportunity."

"I was so fortunate to find Choice House to continue my recovery. It was the perfect place to transition back into society, which includes all of the step work and therapy that was provided. The people I met there were great and they definitely played a major role in my recovery… At Choice House, I was able to be a full-time student at CU-Boulder. All the other sober houses I looked at would not allow me to take all of my classes. I am grateful to have found Choice House because without it, I would probably be somewhere getting high. The house is so nice and clean, which is pleasantly different than what I was used to when I was getting high all the time. It helped me retrain myself to be a contributing member of society and live a clean and healthy life."
