Transitional Sober Livings and 3/4 Halfway Houses in Michigan
Ann Arbor • Detroit • Grand Rapids • Warren • Sterling Heights • Lansing • Flint
This page will highlight reviews and information on sober living homes and 3/4 halfway houses within the State of Michigan. As mentioned in several other pages within this site, the terminology used to describe transitional housing and aftercare residences & services varies from state to state. Michigan happens to be one of those regions which uses the terms “3/4 houses and halfway houses” more so than the term “sober living home” more commonly used in other regions throughout the country. While the recovery services they offer are pretty much the same, with of course standard variations in pricing, structure and amenities, it is important to understand that halfway houses are more along the lines of treatment while 3/4 houses are intended to be transitional housing for those requiring more day-to-day freedoms.
Michigan is located along the great lakes near the Northern US border with major cities and regions being; Detroit, Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, Warren, Sterling Heights, Lansing & Flint, MI. Based on the average cost of living out here it’s more common to find lower cost and very affordable sober housing options, whereas, it’s not nearly as common to find luxury or high-end sober living homes.
There are several important questions to consider prior to deciding on a particular sober living residence or 3/4 house. Whether you’re seeking an affordable, mid-range or a luxury transitional housing location, it’s important to understand that health insurance companies do not pay for for these types of recovery services. In addition, here are a few other suggested questions to consider asking prior to making a decision:
- How structured is the sober living residence? For instance, are there any mandatory in-house meetings, curfews, sponsorship requirements, overnight absence restrictions, etc?
- Is 12-Step meeting attendance required, and if so then how many per week?
- What does the monthly cost include?
- What types of recovery support groups are in the immediate vicinity?
- Is the house male, female or coed?

My experience at Structured Living was excellent. I don’t think I was ready to be out on my own after my release from prison. Living in a house where everyone holds each other accountable helped me remain sober. I never needed to be responsible, my parents always took care of me. Structured Living taught me how to be self sufficient. I’ve learned a lot from my stay there. The houses are all well maintained and furnished. If you needed anything management would be quick to provide it. They give you the perfect amount of structure / freedom. They provide a structured environment without the feeling of being “locked up.” I would recommend everyone that’s in early sobriety to stay at one of the Structured Living facilities. I can’t say that staying there kept me sober, but I also can’t say that it didn’t. All I know is that I wouldn’t change a thing.
