Luminous Sober Living and Freedom House Unite!

We are delighted to formally announce the merger between Luminous Sober Living for Men and Freedom House for Women. With over 20 years serving clients in recovery, Freedom House (now called Luminous Sober Living) has played a pivotal role in helping others maintain their sobriety by providing structure and comfort within a sober living environment. The union between the two organizations will leverage that experience with new ideas and significant investments into the properties.

The term “luminous” refers to a state of enlightenment. It means to be full of or shedding light, especially in the dark. And we know the road to recovery can oftentimes be a dark and lonely road. Therefore, as part of our Luminous philosophy, we believe in fostering positivity, love and a strong sense of community throughout an individual’s recovery process – regardless of whether or not they are a resident of one of our Sober Living Environments. We seek to spread the joys of sobriety and personal growth through powerful social media tools. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and  YouTube for daily positive affirmations, success stories and more. To share your success stories, email us! We’d love the opportunity to share both the joys of sober living and the challenges that you’ve overcome. Below are just a few examples of how we seek to spread the Luminous philosophy and actively engage with recovering communities around the world.

Indeed, make your new life worth all the challenges you've overcome, fears you've faced and mistakes you've made &…
