At Up & Out Sober Living, we know people can and do recover from their dependence on alcohol and other substances.

I understand that Up & Out Sober Living operates pursuant to Title 42 of the United States Code, 300X-25, and the Federal Anti-Drug Act of 1988, PL 100-690, 2036, as amended. Federal law permits the use of federal start-up loan funds as long as the House: (A) prohibits all residents from using drugs and alcohol or illegal drugs; (B) expels any resident who violates such prohibition; (C) equally shares household expenses, including the monthly lease payment, among all residents; and (D) utilizes democratic decision making within the group, including the inclusion in and expulsion from the home.
Under federal law, I agree to be expelled immediately from the home if I violate this agreement’s terms. I understand that in living in the home and agreeing to these terms, I do not have the same rights that I would in a landlord/tenant relationship. In accepting these terms, I understand that federal law controls, and I thereby waive normal due process afforded by local landlord-tenant laws.
I have read and understood all the material on this contract, including the limitations outlined in the Statutory Authority section. I have answered all questions honestly and strive to achieve success in my recovery process. Up & Out Sober Living is not responsible for accidents that may occur on the property. You are personally responsible for ALL your medical expenses.
