Welcome to Better Way Sober Living, I’m Jeffrey Peterson proud owner of this company. Our company Better Way Sober Living (BWSL), is located in Saint Paul, Mn where I was born and a place I’m happy to call home. It has always been a belief of mine that we should aim to positively impact the communities we live in. BWSL is how I can best serve, while working on a cause near to my heart.

Not unlike many of you reading this now, I grew up in an environment that was negatively affected by alcoholism and abuse. It was a struggle everyday to put a smile on my face and go out into the world. These feelings during childhood have translated into a soft spot for those in need. Regardless of who we are, everyone deserves to feel safe and a second chance at becoming who they want to be.

We encourage everyone to be the best they can be while living with us. Whether it’s joining softball, decorating the houses for holidays or working on a business plan for the next chapter in your life… all are welcome.


I’m Chip Bergeaux, program director of 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.

We, here at Better Way Sober Living, feel we can bring some value to the sober housing community by focusing on what we think is necessary: cleanliness, safety, and affordability. Those principles coupled with nice properties provides an opportunity for our residents to improve their lives.

We hope to meet you and your families on the road to recovery.
