The Roots Recovery sober living program is dedicated to teaching young people how to recover from drug and alcohol addiction and lead a life of purpose, devoted to helping others and achieving lifelong peace and serenity.



Many young people have a hard time getting involved with the recovery community. It can be uncomfortable to be the new face in a room full of strangers. Roots Recovery residents instantly become part of a fellowship of peers active in 12 step groups. The shared experience of attending effective and enjoyable meetings and events in the Milwaukee area makes recovery fun and social.

Recovery requires discipline, willingness to change, and the ability to surrender to a new way of living. Statistics show that people who complete six month sober living programs have significantly lower rates of relapse than people who attend 28 or 90 day programs exclusively. Graduates of programs like ours stay sober because after six months our standards become their way of life.
