Sober Homes Work Group

In fiscal year 2022, the Minnesota Legislature requested that the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) form a work group to conduct a study of sober homes (SF873). (View a hearing on SF873 by the Committee on Human Services Reform Finance and Policy.)

This work group will build a report and make recommendations to the Legislature on or before September 15, 2022 in the following four focus areas:

  • increasing access
  • promoting person-centered practices and cultural responsiveness
  • potential oversight of sober home programs
  • providing consumer protections for individuals in sober home programs with substance use disorders and individuals with co-occurring mental illnesses

These organizations are partnering with DHS in the work group:


Meeting Schedule

All upcoming meetings are scheduled from 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. If you want to participate in or observe the work group meetings, please email Neerja Singh at
