structured sober living
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 structured sober living, clients have private bedrooms, a clubhouse next door with an outdoor putting green and inside a pool table, ping-pong, weights, entertainment center and an overall area to spend time with each other and build their recovery community. In our Boulder sober living our men are given the opportunity to start applying recovery tools and skills they've learned in treatment in the safety and structure of our community, a step we believe is critical for men in early recovery. Individuals who enter our structured sober living program often participate in the separate Choice House IOP program . During the day, they are active in our community working, attending 12-Step meetings and building their recovery capital as they integrate back into life.
We host three in-person 12-step meetings each week at the clubhouse so that our men have easy access to the local recovery community. This is especially important as covid-19 has forced local recovery communities to stop in-person meetings and most support has gone online. While online meetings and fellowship are an incredible resource, it does not replace the enriching experience of in-person contact for people in recovery.
Choice House has 26 total structured Boulder sober living beds available at our 10 different homes, all neighboring each other and our clubhouse. Our staff handles each admission into our sober living program individually and determines the right fit. Over and over we've witnessed our protected sober living community become the foundation and springboard that launches our men back into a rich life and a durable recovery.
"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."
