Why Choose Sober Living by the Sea?

Sober Living by the Sea was founded in 1986 by two dedicated individuals who wanted to provide more comprehensive support than was then readily available to men and women who were working to gain a solid foothold in early recovery.

History of Success

Over time, we grew from a small regional program into a nationally recognized and respected network of centers where adults whose lives have been impacted by substance abuse, chemical dependency, and certain co-occurring mental health disorders can access a full continuum of care.

Through the decades, the field of addiction treatment has evolved considerably. Ongoing research has continued to improve the ability of treatment professionals to help men and women end their dependence on alcohol and other drugs. These developments and innovations have been reflected in, and in many cases led by, the life-saving work that occurs every day at Sober Living by the Sea.

But while much has changed, both here in Southern California and across the globe, Sober Living by the Sea has retained an unwavering dedication to certain fundamental concepts and essential principles.

Our ability to incorporate the best emerging methods and techniques while remaining true to the vision and core upon which our program was founded has enabled Sober Living by the Sea to help thousands of men and women not only to emerge from the darkness of addiction, but also to remain strong and productive in the bright promise of long-term recovery.

While this unique juxtaposition of tradition and innovation are central to the ongoing success of Sober Living by the Sea, they are not the only elements that make us such a special place. Here are a few other reasons why our network may be the ideal option for you or your loved one

Comprehensive Services

From detoxification through long-term aftercare support, Sober Living by the Sea is prepared to provide the type and level of care that is best suited to your needs or to those of your loved one. Our full scope of services ensures that no one will ever be forced to adapt their personal goals to fit a one-size-fits-all treatment experience.

Instead, men and women who heal with us only participate in therapies and related activities that have been specifically selected due to their clinical effectiveness and their relevance to the individual’s strengths, needs, and objectives.

Gender-Specific Care

At Sober Living by the Sea, we are proud to have amassed decades of experience and established several successful treatment centers. But we understand these accomplishments would be meaningless if we could not use them to provide personalized care that meets the specific needs of each new person who turns to us for help.

As our network has expanded, our focus was never on getting bigger, but always on getting better. We established The Rose as a safe and supportive environment where women can heal from addiction and co-occurring issues. We launched The Landing as a place where men can receive care in a manner that was designed specifically for them. And we added Sunrise Recovery Ranchto provide an innovative blend of gender-specific treatment with the best elements of coeducational recovery.

Experienced Professionals

Our values and principles are essential to the continued success of Sober Living by the Sea, but the heart and soul of our programs are the experienced and dedicated professionals who so admirably help individuals and families in crisis.

The men and women who staff our programs were selected both for their skills and for their commitment to compassionate personalized service. Many of the therapists, counselors, and other professionals at Sober Living by the Sea are in recovery themselves, and every member of our staff possesses significant training along with unique insights into the challenges of chemical dependency and the power of effective treatment.

Lifelong Support

When you enroll in treatment at Sober Living by the Sea, you do not become a client or a patient. Instead, you become a member of the Sober Living family and a valued participant in the international community of recovery.

While you may take your first steps along the path of recovery at one of our centers, our thorough discharge planning process, vibrant alumni network, and other services ensure that we will continue to walk with you long after you have transitioned out of treatment and returned home.
