The First Step Sober Living Apartment Community is a premier sober living facility for adult males, recovery related for after substance abuse treatment. We’re located in Ingram, TX in the beautiful Texas Hill Country and within a short distance to beautiful rivers, recreation, parks, hiking, shopping, medical facilities, university and addiction treatment centers. More importantly, because we feel that sober living homes are such an important part of the process of long term recovery, we chose to construct our first location where many call it, “The Mecca for Recovery in the South.” With so many residential Treatment facilities only a short distance from us, we feel our location should have access to as many meeting spots for our residents as possible.

We now have 12-Step-based meetings at The First Step that offer a variety of different interests ranging from Alcoholics Anonymous to meetings for folks with eating disorders and PTSD. We feel this fellowship is a crucial step in the process of recovery and we are excited to be so close to these facilities for our residents. We’re also located within a short driving distance to nearby Texas cities/towns: Kerrville, Hunt. Fredericksburg, Bandera, Boerne, Comfort, and 45 minutes to San Antonio.


My journey at the First Step Sober House started with a face-to-face interview with Ed and Rena Blair and Aaron Hines back in July of 2017. All parties at the meeting were present to determine whether my being the house manager would be a suitable fit for their vision. During the interview, they asked me many questions about my background, spiritual path, and my determination to help the addict/alcoholic. Because they emphasized their deep desire to be of the utmost help to those still suffering, I was very impressed by their attitude and commitment toward helping; it seemed to be their main focus in this venture. It was obvious to me they were very spiritual people. Starting the First Step Sober House in honor of their late son who lost his battle with addiction continues to this day and ripples throughout the house and shows their true altruistic intentions to help other alcoholics and addicts. I was taken back by their vision of how they wanted to best help those still suffering.
