Sober Living in California
Sober living is the term used to describe a housing situation (usually a home with several bedrooms or a small apartment complex), where all residents are in recovery from alcohol and prescription drug abuse.
Ocean Hills Recovery offers several options for individuals transitioning out of our 30-Day residential program, from other treatment programs, or for those new to recovery who are seeking a supportive living environment. Our family-style sober living homes are located in Dana Point, one of the most beautiful and desirable beach communities in Southern California.
Each home is managed by a member of Ocean Hills Recovery’s staff. Living on-site, this person provides leadership and guidance for residents who are newly clean and sober. Residents of this state-of-the-art California drug rehab center are expected to follow house rules (such as zero tolerance for drug use or possession), take responsibility for certain household duties (cooking, cleaning and light maintenance), and attend 12 Step meetings, both on-site, as well as in the surrounding community.
The first days and weeks following treatment for alcoholism and prescription drugs can be a challenging time for many individuals. Much has been learned during treatment, and new patterns of behavior are being developed.
For these reasons, California drug rehab center Ocean Hills Recovery established its sober living program: to help clients manage the early period of recovery with around-the-clock support, with a strong and committed core of housemates encouraging sober behavior. Many former clients have found life-long friends among their fellow sober living residents.
And while our sober living program is deeply committed to practicing the principles of the 12 Steps, through meetings, journaling and step work, our program is also founded on reconnecting with the joys of living a clean and sober lifestyle. Residents of this California drug rehab have ample time to take advantage of our beautiful, sunny climate, our proximity to one of Southern California’s most stunning beaches, and all the recreational activities these surroundings offer: swimming, surfing, beach volleyball, bicycling, rollerblading, sailing, and so much more.
When you’re ready to transition from treatment, we invite you to participate in our sober living program. In addition to fun and friends, you’ll be giving yourself the gift of a solid, supportive foundation for your life-long commitment to your drug- and alcohol-free future.
