Sober House is a continuation of Celebrity Rehab, in which celebrities with substance addictions transition from a drug-rehabilitation center to a less structured, drug-free, sober living home, which is housed in a mansion in the Hollywood Hills. The facility, at which the recovering addicts stay for 30 days, is run by House Manager Jennifer Gimenez and rehab tech Will Smith, a former stuntman. Bob Forrest serves as the head counselor. Dr. Drew Pinsky provides outpatient counseling to the recovering addicts during their time in the house.
The production employs a camera crew for each cast member. Producers filmed 2,500 to 3,000 hours of footage for the nine 43-minute episodes of the first season. The camera crews are instructed not to interfere with the cast, but to alert producers if they observe unsafe behavior. This policy is what led to the calling the police on Steven Adler during the first season.
As with Celebrity Rehab, the cast members are paid for their appearance on the show.
Pinsky announced in December 2010 that he has stopped production of future seasons of Sober House, as it was deemed too intrusive, and interfered with the treatment plan.
Casts for individual seasons are seen in sections for those seasons.
Andy Dehnart of Reality Blurred called the series "more harrowing, compelling, and entertaining" than its parent show. Producer John Irwin said that Sober House is "more compelling than Celebrity Rehab. It really is where the real work begins with these guys."
The second season of Celebrity Rehab Presents Sober House premiered March 11, 2010. The five alumni of Celebrity Rehab 3 arrived at the sober living facility one week after completing their drug rehab treatment depicted during that series.
Note: In the synopses, house manager Jennifer Gimenez is referred to as "Jennifer", while patient Jennie Ketcham will be referred to as "Jennie", as that is the diminutive that Ketcham herself and others use to refer to her.
