Find Sober Roommates

New Website Helps Sober People Find Roommates

Gary A. Enos, Editor   MySoberRoommate.com's co-founder says he consistently had seen individuals struggle to find safe living environments in communities after leaving treatment or sober housing.

 

As damaging as a return to a toxic home environment can be to sustained recovery, choosing to live alone also could end up compromising a recovering person's well-being. “Addiction is sort of bred on isolation,” says clinical social worker Jesse Sandler.

 

Having seen patients from both neuropsychiatric hospital and intensive outpatient settings struggle to find recovery-affirming housing options in the community, Sandler worked to fill that void. He and business partner (and fiancee) Emily Chung co-founded MySoberRoommate.com, a free nationwide service that launched in early June.

 

The site already has around 1,000 users with a common bond: All are seeking a stable living arrangement with another sober individual.
