Just because New Life House is a sober living home doesn’t mean it’s not a real home. We take pride in everything that we do, and the homes that we provide are no exception. We believe in exceptional care in a comfortable environment.
New Life has three beautiful sober living homes located across Los Angeles. All 3 provide the comfort needed to really get down to the business of recovery.

New Life House West
New Life House West was built with a beautiful south-western style aesthetic. It is located just miles from the ocean in Torrance, California. With plenty of communal space and a massive yard, it truly fosters a family-oriented environment.

What is Sober Living?
Everyday life contains possible triggers for those in recovery from addiction that can tempt them to start drinking or using drugs again. These triggers can consist of activities and locations where using was commonplace. They might involve being around people who use substances. These situations make it difficult to stay sober in unsupportive environments.
It is important to note that sober living houses and rehab facilities are not the same things. Sober living homes offer a safe space to live with others who are also working on addiction recovery. Our residents often have already completed rehab inpatient treatment or may be attending outpatient treatment while in New Life House. Sober living homes serve as a halfway point before residents return to the “real world” and the accompanying stressors. House managers make sure residents follow the rules and get the outside treatment they need.
How Long Does One Live in a Sober Home?
Because each individual is different, no one’s path to sobriety will look exactly the same. Program lengths vary and can last from just a few months to more than a year. When it comes to the duration of the program, longer proves to be better. The period following detox and inpatient treatment is a critical window where relapse is common. The longer someone can stay in a stable, drug and alcohol-free environment, the better.
The recommended amount of time to remain in a sober living home is at least a year. This gives your loved one ample time to transform old behaviors and learn to stay sober. They build bonds with a healthy, supportive group of young men achieving the same goal. Living in this environment long-term increases their ability to stay sober once they return home.
Sober Living Los Angeles Programs
New Life House is the pioneer of age-specific sober living homes. It has been successfully helping men ages 18 to 35 years old recover from alcohol and drug abuse. Unlike most sober living homes, our houses provide a long-lasting recovery community in a structured and supportive setting.
Teenagers and young adults who use drugs can damage their still-developing brains. The human brain continues to grow and develop until a person’s mid-20s, which means a lot of damage can take place during addiction. Sober living in Los Angeles County is a solution for many people when learning how to live without drugs and alcohol. Young men trapped on a non-stop rollercoaster ride of addiction can use our program as a pivotal transformation process.
Rather than just focusing on abstinence from drugs and alcohol, New Life House incorporates a whole-person approach. We designed our holistic program specifically to help young men between the ages of 18 and 35. We do this through the implementation of services such as life skills, partnered individualized therapy, and partnered holistic treatment.
Our team of dedicated professionals gives their all to the individuals striving to make better lives for themselves. New Life House has been and continues to be one of the top sober living options in Los Angeles. Some of our structured programming includes:
Part of what makes our structured sober living homes in Los Angeles so successful is our uniquely designed outpatient programming.
Our Education Track is designed to help the young men in New Life House find the best academic path possible.
If you have a son coming to New Life House, we invite you to look at it as joining a family, rather than sending him away to a program.
