Evidence Based Sober Living Houses: A Multi-level Analysis

Project Director(s)

Douglas Polcin

"Evidence Based Sober Living Houses: A Multi-level Analysis" will study 12-month outcomes for 600 persons who entered sober living recovery houses. The study is designed to parse out the relative influences of individual, house, and neighborhood characteristics on outcome. An innovative aspect of the grant is to assess how physical characteristics and spatial layout of the houses affect the social environment within the houses and resident experiences.
