FAQs

Q: What does SAL provide in the substance free apartment in Scottsdale?

A: We provide all furnishings, dishes, and utensils, bedding, bath towels, and shared paper products. Residents move into a completely furnished sober recovery apartment home in Scottsdale, outfitted with shared cleaning supplies, Wi-Fi Internet, and TV (with streaming options). Utilities are included.

Q: Will I have my own bedroom?

A: You will share a bedroom with a roommate. Because we know how important a good night’s sleep is, SAL has recently upgraded the mattresses, and men’s beds are all extra-long twins.

Q: Is there a schedule of events/meetings during the day/evening?

A: Social events are scheduled regularly and there is a weekly resident meeting.

Q: What is your visitor policy?

A: Visitors are allowed, but they cannot spend the night.

Q: Which medications are allowed?

A: Doctor’s prescriptions and as-needed over-the-counter medications (aspirin, allergy medication, etc.) are allowed.

Q: Is there a curfew?

A: Yes, each resident must return to the apartment by 10 p.m. (Sunday through Thursday) and by midnight (Friday and Saturday). Suite mates have the responsibility to report fellow suite mates who arrive after curfew. In addition, residents may not leave before 6:00 a.m. without a work slip permit.

Q: Is there a minimum residency term?

A: Yes, SAL’s lease term will initially be for thirty (30) days, and renewed automatically after the first thirty days on a month-to-month basis.

Q: Are pets allowed?

A. Because pet ownership can distract from recovery and complicate any living situation, we do not allow our residents to keep pets with them during their stay. 

Q: Can I bring my family with me?

A. In order for residents to focus on their sobriety, we do not allow family members, spouses, significant others, or children to live with SAL residents.

Q: Are the apartment units gender-specific?

A. Yes, residences at our Scottsdale sober recovery home apartments include all-male and all-female shared apartments. However, our apartment complex is co-ed.

Q: What does it cost to live at SAL?

A. The monthly fee depends on 1-, 2-, or 3-bedroom units, but ranges from $625-$790/mo (fully furnished units, plus includes utilities and WiFi). The security deposit is $300. 

Q: What if I have a felony drug possession or DUI?

A. Here at Sober Apartment Living, we run a background check as a part of our application process to ensure the safety and quality of life for all residents. Being a “sober” living environment, SAL anticipates that applicants may have felony charges related to drug possession or DUI, and we certainly work with all such applicants.

(Again, for safety and quality-of-life reasons, any drug trafficking, terrorist activity, felony assault, and sexual misconduct will disqualify an applicant.)
