Dependent upon the nature of the offense, River will accept applications from individuals that have been convicted of crimes, however, they cannot currently be on parole or felony supervised probation. Through this operational guideline, environment-expectations are solidified and River is an appealing recovery-resource to those who have never been in, or are no longer in the criminal justice system.  Law Enforcement bed checks and searches are not a part of our environment. Sober living houses driven by self-motivation, peer-support, accountability and recovery save lives.

River Sober Living's Founder lived in over 10 different sober living houses throughout his recovery process from Boise to California, Arizona and Hawaii. What made the difference between a flop-house and a clean, healthy and safe environment he could take pride in calling his home always came from the top: the Founder's sincerity in their Resident's living-environment and their success in recovery and whether or not the house had a Live-In House Manager.

Every River House has a vetted and fully-committed Live-In House Manager.

Live-in House Managers are the hinge-pins of River Sober Living. They function as leaders in sobriety and hold residents accountable to the zero-tolerance policy and to the House Rules which ensure cleanliness, comaradarie, functionality and help River Houses to be welcomed in the neighborhood, not feared.
