Sober Living is a critical step to ensure continued sobriety and personal growth, As a part of our weekly curriculum, each resident of our house attends school, therapy, groups, recovery meetings, cooks dinner with their housemates, participates in giving back to their community through philanthropy, exercises almost daily, and attends activities ranging from going surfing to attending art museums.

We offer regular tracks and credit recovery to help our clients return to their previous schools if they choose. We place the utmost emphasis on performing well in school, as we believe that scholastic success translates to increased self-esteem, routine structure, time management and organizational skills.

Life Skills Development
Find Your Passion in Life

Find Your Passion in Life

Treatment and recovery isn’t just about learning how to stop using drugs or alcohol. The recovery process is meant to give you a new perspective on life as well as a new experience. During the treatment process, our clients learn how to have fun again because it’s important to understand that you don’t need to be drunk or high in order to have a good time. Through the bonds our clients create with others in programs, a new perspective for life is revealed.

We understand the value of the family system and how much a child’s struggle can impact everyone involved who cares about the child. We provide weekly parent coaching with a licensed clinician to assist families in tackling everyday challenges with their child.

In providing the highest level of support to parents during this transitional phase, we provide weekly update calls with our team to keep parents abreast of their child’s activities and growth.

While children are off learning new lifeskills, parents are researching and learning how they can grow by consulting experts.

SOCIAL AND RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES

Key Housing includes weekly social and recreational activities for our residents based on each client’s personal goals and interests, with the emphasis on learning how to have healthy, authentic fun. This enables clients to identify healthy outlets for their energy and develop interests to pursue during their free time. We want our clients to learn how to enjoy themselves with the new skills they’ve developed in our program.
