The recovery place or sober home is a form of group or community homes for the people who have undergone treatment and wish to recover from addiction. Normally these community houses or recovery places are owned and managed by private ownership, but some are owned and managed by charity organizations and even businesses. The sober homes are usually located in quiet locations in order to provide a peaceful and appropriate environment to the affected victims of addiction for their quick and early recovery.

However,recovery places or sober homes are different from rehabilitation centres. The rehabilitation centres usually restrict the residents and give them less freedom and provide intensive recovery experience. The residents of sober homes normally are free to come and go whenever they wish as long as they abide with certain rules of the sober homes such as the residents may have to undergo periodic drug testing and they would be asked to be at home at a certain time and go for work at a certain time.
The resident or the people who live in sober homes are expected to be responsible for themselves since people with addiction normally leads to abnormal and irresponsible behaviour. The residents are also expected to pay the cost of living or rent, and buy their own food, and live as they would be living in a regular home.
There are different rules in different sober homes. However, there are some common rules in all sober homes. The residents have to agree to abide with all the rules in a sober home and violating the rules may have different consequences like they have to pay a fine, write an essay about their violation of rules, or may have to make amends to a fellow resident etc. In extreme cases, the rule violator has to leave the sober home.
The fundamental common rule in all the sober home is that the resident has to stay sober and must not use any drugs or alcohol or anything that may again lead to addiction. In some sober houses using certain types of mouthwash or cooking with specific ingredients like vanilla is restricted. These types of materials may contain alcohol and it may come with false-positive indication in drug tests. In addition to this, using this type of ingredients may tempt the resident over-using the ingredient or result in the attempt of drinking alcohol or using drugs.
