12 Step Community In Balance Sober Living believes in the 12 steps of Alcoholics or Narcotics Anonymous for a very simple reason: we know it works. We provide a live-in house manager who has 4 or more years of sobriety and that works a very strong 12 step program. This house manager is there to show you the best meetings in town, to introduce you to other people working a strong recovery program, and provide daily 12 step support and guidance.AA Meeting List → NA Meeting List →
Brotherhood One of our goals at In Balance Sober Living homes is to surround you with like-minded individuals, who are of similar age and motivation, that want to be and stay sober. There is a brotherhood that forms in recovery and the houses are a great place to cultivate this brotherhood. It is a common occurrence to see roommates invite others who are in recovery over for BBQs, to watch football games, or to study the big book. Recovery and In Balance Sober Living homes do not just provide you with roommates, they can provide you with life long friends.

Each Sober Living home is ran by a house manager who is someone working a very strong recovery program and there as not only a community member but also to help support the residents and make sure rules are followed and responsibilities kept.

Optional Intensive Outpatient In Balance Sober Living residents have the option of signing up for In Balance Counseling’s Intensive Outpatient Program. "We opened our Intensive Outpatient Program in 1996 and it quickly became one of the largest, most trusted outpatient providers in Arizona. Our Intensive Outpatient program is located only 10-15 minutes from the Sober Living homes and is contracted by most insurances." If you do not have insurance, or it is one of the few that do not cover IOP then our residents are given a 20% reduced rate.Read more →
Drug Testing/Breathalyzer The live-in house manager will conduct random, weekly urine drug screens. He also can conduct a breathalyzer test if warranted. If the drug screen comes back diluted or appears to be tampered with the house manager will request a hair follicle test. The resident can request, at an additional cost, to be drug tested 2x a week as opposed to only once. The drug tests are not meant to catch anyone but rather are there as a deterrent. We want to put as many obstacles between our residents and using drugs or alcohol.
