Why So Cal?

Why should you choose a Sober Living in Southern California?

Southern California is home to one of the largest and active sober communities in the country. There are over 3,000 12 Step meetings in the greater Los Angeles area weekly. Becoming and maintaining sobriety is often made possible through active involvement in a recovery community. Sober Living in Southern California is ideal for young people looking for a fresh start.

A Sober Community for Young Adults

Young people in recovery are fortunate to find a very dynamic, interesting recovery community throughout Greater Los Angeles and Southern California.

There are various committees of young, sober, excited individuals who host events and activities for other young people in sobriety. These include trips to Disneyland, Six Flags Magic Mountain, roller-skating, beach trips, dances and huge “young peoples” conventions with hundreds, sometimes thousands of sober young people in attendance. Young adults find excitement for life and fun is enhanced through sobriety and friendships with others who are also working a program.

Get in on the fun.

New Life House utilizes the general community to provide opportunities for education, recreation, and the chance to develop skills to make good choices determining what activities are healthy or wise for them. House members are allowed to take advantage of appropriate activities as they demonstrate readiness. Options are discussed with staff prior to consent being given. Residents typically attend with other house members who are further along in their recovery.

A big congratulations to Grant O. on 9 years sober!

This year has been all about handling life on lifes terms. The circumstances in my life this year have been the most difficult; my mothers going through cancer treatment and Ive been recently changing my career path. However because of the principles of AA and what I have learned at New Life, Ive been able to walk through anything life has thrown at me. Its an honor and a privilege to be still recognized with New Life House and have the opportunity to give back. Thank you for my sobriety!
