Application process

Contact Admissions

After contacting admissions, potential members will meet with the house owner for an interview and undergo a background check. Please know that a criminal history is not grounds for denial of admission. We feel confident in our members and want to ensure that all men at Southwood Sober Living feel secure in their living environment.

Documentation & Deposit

After speaking with admissions, potential members will receive forms to complete, sign, and return. These forms detail house rules and financial obligations. Once admissions receives member's paperwork and deposit, a bed will be held for 10 days. For more details, see the forms below.
