In our 30+ years of experience, we have learned that a Dress Right, Feel Right environment begins the transformation process for men in recovery. This transformation is enhanced as men begin to grow spiritually. To become the best version of themselves. To become the man that God wants them to be. This happens when men embrace the following concepts, what we like to call our Guiding Principles of Trinity Sober Homes.

Spirituality & Counseling

We believe a strong spiritual program is critical for long-term sobriety. All Trinity Sober Home residents are required to attend 12 step meetings, meet with a sponsor, and perform service work. In addition all residents are provided one-on-one guidance with a spiritual director, including a written plan, monthly reviews, and life coaching sessions.

Community Living, Longer-Term Housing

Our experience has shown us that many people think they will only spend a few months at a sober house. For many people the sober house becomes home. The joy and personal fulfillment of living in community is at the core of Trinity Sober Homes. As a result, we have developed a reputation as a place where men can exhale, relax, and settle into a place they call home. The result is our men tend to stay in the sober house.

Less Rules, Older Residents

At Trinity Sober Homes, we prefer to take a trust and verify approach to house management. That means we have less rules and more suggestions. Responsible residents want more freedom with more accountability. Our experience has taught us that mixing twenty-somethings with forty/fifty/sixty-somethings can create some very real challenges. For some people, this generational difference can be positive, for others it can be a distraction. Trinity Sober Homes offers solutions for responsible male residents age 40 and older.

Dress Right, Feel Right

We believe that a true personal transformations begin with dignity and respect. Following the principle of Dress Right, Feel Right, our sober residences are not utilitarian dormitories, but rather high-quality homes with an environment that helps our residents live their lives as the person they want to become. By maintaining sober homes that have an enduring culture of dignity and respect, we strengthen the bond we have with our residents that help us guide them to do what's right.


What to Ask When Looking At Sober Housing?

St. Paul offers a wide range of sober living options. Here are a few questions to consider before making your decision:

  • Why am I going to a sober house?
  • What are my goals?
  • How long do I want to live there?
  • What is my budget?
  • What spiritual support or guidance is offered?
  • What are the rules and how are they enforced?
  • Who else lives there and how will I fit in?

I hope that whoever comes to our homes, may never know an unhappy day among us.
