A halfway house is a licensed residential treatment program for individuals who are in need of a more structured environment that provides the opportunity to learn sober living skills, such as working while receiving therapeutic interventions.
A transitional house offers a structured living environment for individuals in early recovery where staff helps oversee and support the residents. Rent is paid by the resident.
A recovery house is a self-pay group home for individuals who are seeking a drug and alcohol-free, structured environment where he/she can learn recovery and living skills to support long term recovery. Recovery houses are self-pay and are not licensed treatment facilities. Most individuals living in recovery homes are in early recovery, under 12 months.

DDAP began enforcing the recovery house licensing requirement on June 9, 2022. Details about recovery house licensing, including a link to the published regulations in the Pennsylvania Code & Bulletin, can be found here.
Names, locations, and additional details about each DDAP-licensed recovery house in Pennsylvania are regularly updated here. You can select “Recovery House” under the Facility Type Search drop-down on the left-hand panel, and narrow your search by location if desired.
Once individuals feel they have an established recovery support system, they can choose to live in a sober house. A sober house is a self-pay drug and alcohol-free environment which has less structure than a recovery house.
