What We Offer

St. Paul Sober Living Programs


The Recovery Academy offers highly structured St. Paul sober living programs for men with substance use and/or mental health disorders.

Who We Are

Meet the compassionate and supportive team of individuals that make The Recovery Academy the best St. Paul sober living program available in Minnesota.


Our beautifully appointed St. Paul sober living homes feature private or shared bedrooms, a recreation rooms, and professional support staff that are available 24/7.

How is The Recovery Academy different than other St. Paul sober living homes?

At The Recovery Academy, we recognize the great need for support during the transition between an inpatient treatment program and a sober living residence. Inpatient programs provide a safe space to stabilize and begin a journey of recovery, but they are a controlled environment and not the real world.

Traditional sober living homes often do not offer enough structure and accountability, where people in early recovery are often set up for failure be it lack or life skills or regression of the disease.

To overcome this obstacle, The Recovery Academy offers a safe, non-punitive environment where people can continue their recovery journey with compassion and support. This allows them the time to figure out what they want recovery to look like, learn and move forward from mistakes, and prepare for the transition into a life of successful, long-term recovery. Contact us today to see what makes our St. Paul sober living home different!
