My name is Chip Bergeaux, program manager at Better Way Sober Living. I have been sober since November 1st, 2014. I started out as a resident in a sober home here in St. Paul, MN. After a little over 10 months, I was asked to manage a property on the east side of St. Paul. I spent the next 15 months managing a recovery residence. Now, I’ve operated the front end of this company since January 2017.
My friend and mentor started mentioning the opportunity to open our own sober housing company. We set out to view a house and ended up purchasing the first home we viewed. We have since opened 4 more.
It’s helped me stay close to those in need of someone that can provide safe and stable housing that’s specifically designed for their early recovery needs. I have many life experiences that help with understanding what is needed on an individual basis. Since we are all different, the things we look for are a bit different; however, we are all in need of support, accountability, and fellowship.
We, here at Better Way Sober Living, feel we can bring some real value to the sober housing community through focusing on what we think is necessary: cleanliness, safety, and affordability coupled with very nice properties and involved and understanding staff members.
We hope to meet you and your families on the road to recovery.
