Yes, sober livings rent rooms. Essentially all the rooms in a sober living facility are intended to be rented to individuals in recovery. Sober living facilities are group homes for individuals who have recently completed a substance abuse and/ or addiction treatment program that wish to move into transitional housing prior to returning home. Instead of immediately returning home, sober living homes offer a greater level of support in a community environment, while residents continue to implement the newly learned tools and skills related to becoming self-reliant while maintaining sobriety. Residing in a sober living facility offers a person in recovery with a built-in network of other sober individuals for support. 

Another benefit to residing in a sober living facility is that its residents are expected to care and be fully responsible for themselves (e.g., washing their own laundry, cleaning up after themselves, purchasing and preparing food, etc.), which can be advantageous to the recovery process. All sober living homes require its residents to pay for their accommodations. Some sober livings provide its residents with shared rooms, while others can provide a single sober living room for rent within the facility. Due to the nature of sober livings, instead of having residents sign a lease, they have their residents pay fees on a month-to-month basis. 

There is a plethora of sober living facilities available to those in need, each with distinct characteristics, located in different geographical areas, offering a variety of wide-ranging amenities. Every sober living facility has its own set of house rules, expectations of its residents, fees, and requirements. Each sober living home is different, and most are privately owned. Sober living facilities can range in price, depending on the location of the facility, amenities offered, and a variety of additional contributing factors. Most sober living facilities do not impose a time limit for its residents, enabling them to stay for as long as they need, provided they are able to pay for their stay and adhere to the rules and regulations of the facility.
