A Halfway House with Highly Qualified Staff

Christian Women’s Sober Outreach, LLC, located in Alexander City, AL, is a 14 bed halfway house for women.  The program is designed for a six month stay although in many cases a longer stay is advisable. Sobriety habits and acceptance of “life on life’s terms” cannot be accomplished in the blink of an eye.  Many in early recovery want to make up for lost time spent in their addiction but premature departure from a sober living residence is not the best way and often leads to relapse and further loss of self-esteem.
