Family Sober Living - Single Parent

Residents in Recovery has been working with single mothers in early recovery since 2019,  In that time, combined with the lived experience of our Clinical Director, a program has been developed to give single parents the best opportunity of a long-term sustainable recovery with their family.  Reunification with children, independent parenting and maintaining a home, all while in early recovery is difficult and requires support.  The Single parent Sober Living Program provides the necessary wrap-around support while working through the complexities of having been a mother in active addiction.

Family Sober Living - Single Parent

Supported Reunification With Child(ren)

Residents in Recovery provides a stable, recovery-oriented environment to support the reunification of children back into their full-time care.   The reunification process can be overwhelming and may lead to stress and even potential relapse.  Supporting this process reduces the chance of relapse, thereby minimizing further disruption in care with the children.

  • Must have completed an in-patient treatment program in past 3 months without relapse

  • Must have primary care of children upon admission

  • Must be able to pass drug test upon admission (7 days free of substances)

  • Must be able and willing to participate in recovery during stay


Supporting the reunification of children back into care with their mother is the ultimate prevention strategy.  Adverse childhood experiences are a major determining factor for future mental health and addiction issues.  Minimizing these adverse experience and reinforcing attachment, will impact the future for all children involved.  Fostering a healthy home environment, will have a positive impact on the entire family, immediate and extended.


This program also aims to support reintegration back into the community.  There are numerous programs for families and children that further support healthy development.  This program connects parents with as many community supports as necessary.

Treatment allows the parent the opportunity to heal themselves.  This is only the start of the process.  Addressing trauma, healing the family unit, child counseling and behavioral changes for the entire family unit have yet to be addressed.  Facing all of these is much more positive when living in a supportive and recovery oriented sober living program.

The Family Sober Living Program is no longer being offered to the public by Residents in Recovery.  Please contact SHA Mental Health and Addictions at 306-820-6250 or the Ministry of Social Services at 306-787-3661 for local options.
