Addiction knows no boundaries and impacts people from every walk of life in every community. Recovering from addiction begins with a desire for change and connecting with recovery resources. Whether it's an intevention, treatment center, sober living environment, counselling for addicts and/or their families or 12 step programs, we are fortunate to have a number of quality resources available right here in Richmond, VA. Bridging RVA is not affiliated with any of these resources. However, we do appreciate and value the integrity and presence of these programs in our community.

Sober Living Homes
Residential drug and alcohol rehabs are just the start of the recovery journey. Sober living homes offer a safe environment, with support and guidance, for those pursuing a pathway to recovery. Residents return to work, school and life’s activities, with encouragement and accountability. Those who transition through sober living homes for at least 9 months have a greater than 70 percent chance of continued sobriety over a period of 10 years.
When looking into sober living options, do your homework and ask the following:
- What are the rules and expectations?
- Who oversees the house/program?
- What's the maximum number of residents at the house?
The sober living homes below value recovery, dignity, respect, compassion, safety and structure. These homes are owned and operated by persons with long term sobriety, who work alongside residents to provide a safe and structured environment for the alcoholic or addict.
