Spero House Sober Living upholds the Ethics Policies set forth by both the Arizona Recovery Housing Association (AzRHA) and the National Association of Recovery Housing (NARR). This means many things, most importantly, the cost of our Urine Analysis Drug Screening is built into our living fees. This lack of ethical responsibility is a huge problem in the recovery treatment industry across the country. Many facilities can offer housing scholarships to individuals due to direct/indirect payments, commissions, or trades from lab companies that provide confirmation testing/ point of care testing/ qualitative and/or quantitative testing for residents by billing insurance companies. Third party billing for UAs is a lucrative business, it is also an unethical business.
Spero House is for women who want a supportive and warm place to live as they transform their lives. Each of our homes are clean, safe, and have a homey atmosphere. Our House Managers are mature, caring women who help each resident along their path of recovery. Our residents appreciate being held accountable, feeling valued, and receiving support while, we appreciate our residents' participation in their recovery and in our Spero community! The transformations we get to witness are nothing short of amazing!
Majority of our residents move in from treatment where they have spent the last 30 days being clean and sober safely confined within four walls. Sober living is where the rubber meets the road, it's a fine balance on not overwhelming the new resident while still placing expectations on them. Our residents, who are all 18 and older, are expected to adult or at least show that they are working toward better "adulting" skills!
