In early recovery, it helps to have a safe and stable place to live. Progress Valley offers several locations for sober living near Minneapolis-St. Paul. Our long-term sober housing options are more than just a place to live — they’re a recovery community. Residents have the time, structure, and support to build a strong foundation to meet their goals in long-term recovery.

What’s a Sober Living House Like?

While living at our sober house, you’ll work closely with Progress Valley staff and peers, and engage with community resources. In a safe, supportive learning environment, you’ll acquire recovery and living skills that you’ll need to increase your independence.

You will participate in community-related sober activities while working, volunteering, or continuing your education. We ask that residents make a three-month commitment to living with us, and some stay up to three years. The length of your stay will depend on when you feel ready to move to a new living situation.

Expanded Sober Living in the Twin Cities

In 2022, Progress Valley purchased three sober housing facilities in Minneapolis and St. Paul. These locations — in addition to our sites in Richfield and Bloomington — significantly increased our spaces for individuals in recovery. Each house offers a supportive environment and access to professional staff. All are close to treatment locations, public transit and job opportunities.

Do I Have to Be in Treatment to Live in a Sober House?

No. But many people who live in our sober housing are also participating in treatment at Progress Valley or with another provider. We welcome everyone who seeks a supportive place for a sober lifestyle.

Need Some Short-Term Financial Help?

Sober housing is not covered by insurance. If you’re not quite ready to return to work and pay your rent and living expenses, Progress Valley has some temporary scholarships available. Ask our Central Access Team for details.
