Sober Living by the Sea’s drug & alcohol addiction treatment is rooted in a science-based, research-supported clinical model to ensure a healthier, more satisfying life.

Starting the Admissions Process at Sober Living by the Sea

When you call, you will speak with an admissions counselor who will guide you through a brief, confidential telephone assessment.

Once the assessment is completed, the admissions counselor will determine the most appropriate level of care for you, either at our facility or elsewhere. If detox or other medical services are indicated prior to admission to Sober Living by the Sea, the counselor will make all of those arrangements.

Your admissions counselor will advise what to bring and will also be available to answer any other questions you may have prior to your arrival. See our Frequently Asked Questions section.

Arrangements can be made for airport pickup and escort to our facilities. If needed, escorting is also available from the point of origin.

Sober Living by the Sea is conveniently located near three major southern California Airports and a few minutes drive from the freeway system.
