This study examined sober living home (SLH) owners' knowledge of OT and perceived barriers to implementing OT within SLHs. In this pretest–posttest survey, statistically significant median increase in knowledge of OT services (z = –3.512, p < .001) was detected from pretest to posttest. Most participants reported lack of finances as a barrier to using OT services. OTs can advocate and provide education to address barriers.
