From a high of 200 or so in 2016, the number of sober-living homes in Prescott has now declined by nearly 90 percent — to a total of 28.

That is down once again from the low of 35 that the city reported in February.

Local officials have credited the strict city regulations imposed in early 2017 as being partially responsible for the continuing decline in the number of group recovery homes.

Within the next two years, however, the city will relinquish its local regulation of the sober-home industry to the state of Arizona.
