There is no specific amount of time in sober living that can guarantee your loved one’s sobriety. That is just the reality of it. However, a thorough stay at a sober house can do a lot for one’s recovery. A good stay at a sober living facility typically looks like anywhere between 3-6 months to a years time. Anything less than that and the individual may be just biding their time with one foot out the door, and may not become fully immersed in their sober living experience. Those who go to sober living for a month or two, do get the experience of it, but they do not get to reap all of the benefits.
