Where Women are Empowered to Regain Control of Their Lives

Milwaukee Gender-Specific Sober Living

At Roots Recovery, our goal isn’t to just help you overcome addiction in the short term. We’re here to empower you with the tools you need to achieve lifelong sobriety, health, and happiness. In our Women’s Sober Living house, we provide residents with a safe space to call home during their treatment and a place to work together with fellow women in recovery, developing a fellowship of sisterhood and support that lasts a lifetime.

Women’s Sober Living Homes Near You

Our Women’s Sober Living home is a spacious, two-story, single-family house. Women share a comfortable bedroom with one of their peers, and have access to communal dining, laundry, and recreational spaces, including a relaxing backyard area. We provide women in recovery with all the resources they need to begin healing, and all the amenities they need to call our sober house a home.

Aside from the many benefits our Women’s Sober Living home provides, residents get a chance to recover in relative privacy. Located just off of the UW-Milwaukee campus, where others in the neighborhood share living arrangements, our female-specific sober living home allows residents to blend in and focus on their recovery.

    Structured Living Women’s Rehab in Milwaukee

    We believe one of the best ways to empower women in recovery is by surrounding them with other women who have faced or are currently facing similar challenges. Our Milwaukee Sober Living houses are welcoming, safe spaces where women can practice living sober without any judgment or distractions. We help residents confront their deep-rooted issues, build a lasting support network, and develop the skills they need to reclaim the life they deserve.

    Sobriety Skills

    Sober Living Program

    While in our Roots Recovery Sober Living programs, our residents’ schedules are planned around their addiction treatment programs, providing the same structure that they get in clinical treatment throughout the day. To help apply what they’ve learned during the day, residents reinforce the 12-Step principles, recovery skills, and coping mechanisms that they covered in treatment during nightly house meetings.

    Practicing Life Skills
    and Responsibility

    Life Skills Training Program

    Suffering from alcohol or drug addiction can often make it difficult for people to learn the basic skills they need to care for themselves. We dedicate time to teaching our residents how to fulfill responsibilities that many of them have never had, such as doing laundry, grocery shopping, and more broadly, caring for a family. Our residents are held accountable for completing daily household chores, which benefits the group and helps individual clients develop the accountability that comes with life after rehab.


    Professional Growth Program

    Whether the women in our sober living house have future goals that are more family-centric, or they want to further explore their career options — or both — we do everything in our power to help position them for success. Our house managers provide support as our residents search for jobs: they help residents build a resume, practice interviews, and even provide transportation around Milwaukee as they drop off applications. We also provide our residents with bike rentals so that they can easily commute to their job, as well as free bus passes until they find employment.


    Women-Focused Therapy Program

    Because of the separation between our men’s and women’s programs, we can offer more specialized therapies. By providing our residents with gender-specific group programs and therapies, women have access to safe spaces where they can discuss personal experiences that are more commonly shared between women. Our individual and group discussions are geared towards topics that address both addiction and mental health issues, such as trauma, domestic abuse, and co-occurring disorders like depression and anxiety.

    Supportive Recovery

    Supportive Recovery Sisterhood

    At Roots Recovery, residents of Women’s Sober Living form strong bonds that are unlike any other. As our residents progress through treatment, complete housework, and attend recovery meetings together, they form lasting friendships. By sharing each other’s struggles, experiences, and successes, women form support networks that are reinforced during group activities like hiking, camping, rafting, sports competitions, and more. These friendships grow stronger with time, and provide women with strong support networks that can be utilized once they’ve left our rehab programs.

    House Managers

    Supportive House Managers

    Each of our Sober Living homes are led by house managers, all of whom are alumni of Roots Recovery, so they understand what it’s like to struggle with addiction. Along with ensuring that schedules are followed and chores are completed, women house managers are great resources for female residents staying in our Milwaukee Sober Living home. They’re always available to answer questions about recovery and act as examples of what can be achieved through sobriety.

    Proudly Serving Milwaukee

    No matter if you’re coming to us from Waukesha, Racine, Sheboygan, Menomonee Falls, West Allis, Oak Creek, or from somewhere outside of the Milwaukee area, we look forward to helping you pursue a life of sobriety.

    We chose to house our Sober Living program in Milwaukee because of the city’s welcoming addiction recovery community, as well as its many professional, educational, and entertainment opportunities. Our residents can bike the Oak Leaf Trail, window shop in the Third Ward, visit the Milwaukee Art Museum, and more. As you begin to heal, you’ll be able to take advantage of more and more of Milwaukee’s many charms.
