Residents who want tolive in a sober living home must pay their rent, which varies from $500 to$5,000 a month depending on the area and whether a particular home offers mealsand other services. The housing may be incredibly economical because residentsmay not have to pay anything for utilities.
The cost of residingin a sober living facility varies. Rent and a housing management fee arerequired for residents to live there. A sober living home may only have amaximum of 10 residents in most states. It would have an impact on the rentthat they individually pay.

People with substanceuse disorders can stay in sober living homes, which are often known as"halfway houses" since they frequently serve as transitional lodgingfor those exiting drug and alcohol recovery programs.
According to a TheIntercept study published in May, the federal government is underreportingCOVID-19 cases in halfway houses. In addition to the fact that the Bureau ofPrisons reports fewer cases than county health officials, many in halfwayhouses who got in touch with media said they were instructed to keep theirpositive test results a secret.
The true number ofCOVID-19 cases in a halfway home shouldn't require in-depth investigativereporting. However, historically, the public has had relatively little accessto information regarding halfway houses, although they play a significant rolein the criminal justice system. Finding even basic data is challenging toimpossible, such as the number of halfway homes nationwide or the number ofpersons residing in them.
Generally speaking,this obscurity is caused by two factors: Second, the phrase "halfwayhouse" is frequently used to refer to a wide variety of institutions.First, halfway homes are typically privately managed and do not report data theway public facilities are obligated to. To explain how various establishmentscommonly referred to as "halfway houses" differ from one another andhow these criminal justice facilities frequently fail to meaningfully supportpeople who have been incarcerated, we compiled the scant information that doesexist about halfway houses. We also look at why halfway houses have becomehotspots for COVID-19 because of subpar oversight and bad conditions.
In this briefing, weshall exclusively use the phrase "halfway home" to refer to onespecific sort of facility: a residential facility where people leaving prisonor jail (or, occasionally, fulfilling a requirement of probation) are forced tolive before being fully released into their communities. People who reside inthese facilities do so in a community setting and are subject to a set ofguidelines, including curfews, programming attendance, and employment upkeep.
The management ofthese facilities is frequently contracted out to nonprofit organizations andfor-profit businesses by state prison offices, probation and parole boards, andthe Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP). These agreements are the main source ofrevenue for halfway houses.
Residential ReentryCenters (RRCs) have a capacity of 9,778 individuals, and the federal governmentcurrently has 154 active contracts with RRCs countrywide. In 2018, RRCs housed9,600 residents, or roughly the full capacity, on any given day. Although thereare no regular population reports, 32,760 people spent time in federal RRCs in2015, indicating the high rate of population turnover in these facilities.
The number ofstate-run or state-contracted halfway houses, as well as the number ofresidents living in halfway houses, is regrettably far less well-documented.According to BJS statistics gathered in 2012, there are 527"community-based correctional facilities," or establishments where atleast half of the inmates are frequently allowed to leave. These facilitieshoused a total of 51,977 people on a single day: 6,834 girls and 45,143 males.These figures, however, include establishments that are used exclusively orlargely as residential correctional facilities, as we will explain later (wherepeople serve their entire sentences). Due to this uncertainty, it is verydifficult to estimate the daily population of halfway houses and the number ofhalfway houses that are specifically sponsored by the state.
The procurementprocedure is one of the reasons why we are more familiar with federal halfwayhouses than state-level halfway houses. State contracting procedures varygreatly and make little public information available, which makes it much morechallenging to comprehend the rules affecting persons in state-contractedfacilities. In contrast, the federal contracting process is mostly standardizedand open.
