Sober Charities will raise funds and in kind donations to support those in need of substance abuse treatment, sober living housing, counseling, detox, job training and referral, education as well as basic needs such as food and clothing. In addition, Sober Charities will act as a referral source to many local agencies for those in need of services.
For those who come out of the darkness; seeking help with detox, treatment, counseling, sober living, AA, NA, Celebrate Recovery – the recidivism or relapse rates are remarkably improved.
We appeal to you, to help us, help them and help the community, too!!

Welcome to an Opportunity to Help Others Find a Better Way of Life!!
“Sober Charities is an organization committed to improving individual lives and the community by supporting all sorts of substance abuse recovery services – thereby greatly improving public safety and recidivism or relapse rates for those in recovery or incarcerated due to drug or alcohol behavior and induced criminal activities. These social problems are at all time highs!!
The “good news” is – well documented studies establish that treating addiction substantially reduces crime and promotes public safety. Recent studies, documented thru the courts and legal system and the substance abuse treatment industry, indicate incredible relapse and recividism reduction rates from 87% (the standard) to 17% (post treatment, including all treatment modalities eg inpatient, outpatient and residential sober living opportunities).
Sober Charities helps carry out this mission by providing the funding for these essential services for rehabilitation such as inpatient and outpatient treatment, clean and sober housing, counseling and job assistance to adult women and men suffering from substance abuse or chemically dependency problems, who simply need a supportive boost to return successfully to their respective families and community.”
