Women’s Sober Living

At Her Harbor, we understand the profound healing that can happen when women gather together for recovery.

Our women’s sober living environment is designed to provide a supportive and structured setting for continued recovery and personal growth post-rehab.

What is Women's Sober Living?

Women’s sober living is a transitional living arrangement for women who have completed rehab and are looking for a supportive community to reinforce their sobriety. Sober living homes for women offer a structured environment, fostering independence while providing a recovery network and resources essential for ongoing sobriety.

Why Women-Specific Sober Living is Important

Sometimes, when we heal from one addiction, another pops up, and a coed sober living can sometimes provide distractions that are disruptive to the recovery process. Women’s-only sober living tends to allow women to continue their sobriety journey in a way that’s conducive to long-term recovery.

Additionally, our sober living recognizes the unique challenges and experiences of women in recovery—like body image issues, hormonal challenges, and harmful societal expectations. In a women’s-only space, clients feel more at ease to explore the roots of their addiction, share their experiences, and support one another, thus laying a strong foundation for lasting recovery.
