Men's Sober Living in Mississippi

Overview: Sober Living Homes
for Men & Women

At Extra Mile Recovery, our mission is to provide addiction rehab programming and recovery services that are as compassionate as they are effective — and to us, that means giving our clients truly personalized treatment that sets them up for success well after rehab ends.

As part of that mission, we’ve found that many clients are interested in separate women’s and men’s sober living following their time with us. We’re happy to help clients find solutions, from sober living arrangements in MS, or a gendered retreat-style experience with one of our sister facilities, Brightside Sober Living or Ascension Sober Houses in Austin, TX. Upon completion of our Residential Inpatient program, we can facilitate a seamless transition and provide transportation to either residence to ensure there are no gaps in treatment.

The Relationship
Between Addiction Rehab and Sober Living

Between our Drug and Alcohol Detox and Residential Inpatient rehab programs, we work with clients to help them get clean in a safe and comfortable way, then use a variety of therapies to uncover the roots of their addiction and find new outlets and coping mechanisms that allow clients to experience a lasting recovery.

From personal experience with addiction, our staff understands that rehab isn’t the end of recovery, it’s only the beginning — which is why we give clients access to our comprehensive Aftercare planning services, where they work with case managers to plan their living situation, transportation, employment, and ways they can transfer the skills they learned in rehab to the world outside.

Some clients determine that they are ready to return to a living situation that puts them back with their support network at home. Others are interested in living at home while continuing with local outpatient programs. In some cases, clients need a sober living program with others who hold them accountable and understand what they’re going through while they transition back into a “normal” life. We’re proud to be able to offer a retreat-style sober living experience through both of our sister sober houses in Austin, TX.

Brightside Sober Living for Men & Women

The goal of a sober living program is for people in recovery to practice life skills in stable, controlled, and highly structured environments. Brightside provides separate housing for men and women, so their care is tailored to their needs. It’s a place where support networks are broadened and strengthened through social interactions, group work, and 12-Step meetings, and clients a chance to develop the skills they learned in treatment at Extra Mile Recovery.

Everyone’s recovery looks different, which is why we offer a variety of options. At Brightside Sober Living, residents spend their days productively, on manageable tasks that help them prepare for life on their own:

Brightside Meetings

Anyone living at Brightside Sober Living participates in daily 12-step programming meetings or daily meetings in an equivalent program. They also attend weekly relapse prevention and household meetings. These help residents track their personal progress and understand where their peers are in their own journeys.


Residents at Brightside have daily and weekly chores and other responsibilities including cleaning, yardwork, and maintaining the living space. Residents are also responsible for cleaning up their own messes, food storage and prep, and personal hygiene.

Ascension Sober House for Men & Women

Another name for sober living is “extended care,” and this name accurately describes our second sister facility, Ascension House. Whereas Brightside is largely about practicing accountability and giving residents resources to practice sober life and move forward, Ascension is instead focused on more hands-on counseling and scheduling that helps residents deal with the more complicated aspects of returning to their daily lives without relapsing.

Ascension Sober Houses in Austin, TX provide full but flexible care for men and women in separate facilities that keeps the client engaged with their recovery as they begin to live sober:

Clinicians and
Extended Care Staff

Ascension employs some of the best clinicians in all of Austin. These clinicians work closely with Ascension’s knowledgeable staff to further hone residents’ relapse prevention tools and help them practically cope with any challenges that sober life presents during these first few critical weeks in recovery.


While schedules are highly structured, they are adapted to each resident’s personality, gender, relationships, relapse history, and vulnerabilities. Ascension can even adapt its care to work with other outpatient or non-residential programs, and different family or career needs, all with a focus on support networks and self-care.
