In Balance Sober Living
In Balance has 5 sober living homes located in Central Tucson. The homes vary in sizes but range from an 8 bedroom to a 3 bedroom house. The houses are: Catalina House, Mabel House, Norris House, Edison House, and the Palo Verde House. The sober living homes are step down houses exclusively for people who have successfully graduated a program primary program or have 30 days or more sober. These homes are fantastic options for our residents, giving them a continued sense of community and belonging that they want to continue. The houses are in prime locations for Tucson, and are relatively close to our main campuses.
Below you will find the map detailing the general locations (general to protect privacy) of our sober living houses. As you can tell they are all right in the middle of town, walking distance to everything needed, and close to each other forming a strong sober community. Below the map I have included a couple pictures of our newest sober living home: the Catalina House.
The University of Arizona
Two of our houses are literally right across the street from The University of Arizona and all 5 are minutes away.
The University of Arizona is only 1.0 mile away from the Transitional Living campus. The prestigious school describes itself as "The University of Arizona (UA) is a place without limits-where teaching, research, service and innovation merge to improve lives in Arizona and beyond. We aren't afraid to ask big questions, and find even better answers. Since it was founded, the UA has grown to cover more than 380 acres in central Tucson, a rich breeding ground for discovery. Where else in the world can you find an astronomical observatory mirror lab under a football stadium? An entire ecosystem under a glass dome? Visit our campus, just once, and you'll quickly understand why the UA is a university unlike any other.
Here, "Bear Down" is more than just a motto.
Before UA student body president and revered football quarterback John "Button" Salmon died in 1926, his last words to his teammates were "Tell them ... tell them to bear down." Whether it's academics, athletics or research, we've adopted the stance that when the going gets tough, the tough #BearDown.
Our curiosity knows no bounds. As a leading-edge public research university, we're inspired to explore humanity's most fundamental questions - about science, medicine, the arts and business. Our faculty includes members of esteemed national academies, Pulitzer Prize winners, White House Champions of Change and celebrated thought leaders in numerous disciplines. We are leading projects that will change how we see the world, such as the OSIRIS-REx mission, which will scoop samples from a near-Earth asteroid in 2020.
Our graduates are workforce-ready. At the UA, 100 percent of our undergraduates will have the opportunity to apply the knowledge they learn in the classroom in the real-world, through internships, community service, on-campus jobs and research opportunities. Our mission is to graduate students who are sought after by the best employers and postgraduate programs, and who are ready to embark on engaging, fulfilling careers. Equipped with skills, knowledge, experience and the entrepreneurial spirit they gain at the UA, our students become highly skilled members of society who lead with determination, innovate without limits and create companies that generate more jobs, benefitting our state, our nation and the world, in boundless ways. Our alumni include astronauts and actors; Grammy, Tony, Emmy and Oscar winners; media stars; Olympic athletes; Fortune 500 CEOs; public servants; Nobel scientists; inventors and best-selling authors.
Bigger Questions. Better Answers. Bear Down."
