25 Years of Changing Lives

Sober Living by the Sea was founded in 1986. At that time, treating addiction for a period of months in a residential setting was practically unheard of.

Our founders built Sober Living by the Sea’s addiction treatment program to help residents create a foundation for lasting recovery.

While holding true to our original vision and mission, Sober Living by the Sea has made a series of advancements over the years, and become one of the most renowned addiction centers in the country.

In order to provide the full continuum of personalized care to a wide range of patients, we have diversified our services to include a number of specialty programs, including a family program, and three primary care programs:

  • The Rose – A primary addiction treatment program for women located on the sand in Newport Beach that specializes in trauma, substance abuse and women’s issues.
  • The Landing – A primary alcohol and drug rehab center for men located on the sand in Newport Beach that specializes in addiction and men’s issues.
  • Sunrise Recovery Ranch – A Southern California drug rehab center for both men and women located on a nine-acre ranch in the foothills.

Because individuals who come to our network can work through every stage of recovery – including detox, primary care, and outpatient treatment – in one place, they receive seamless clinical care. Our treatment teams work together to ensure a smooth transition through each level of care.

This standard of clinical excellence has earned a number of Sober Living by the Sea’s programs accreditation by CARF, an independent, nonprofit organization with rigorous quality and service standards.
