Directory of Drug Rehabs-Alcoholism Treatment Centers and Sober Living Homes in Southern California

Kenneth Whitfield reviews Sober Living Homes and Drug Rehabs throughout Southern California.
Baird Whitfield has visited numerous Sober Living Homes and Drug and Alcohol Treatment Centers in the Los Angeles County area in the following neighborhoods such as West Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Malibu, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Thousand Oaks, Agoura Hills, Encino, Pacific Palisades and Culver City. This is to ensure that our reviews are honest as all the Sober Living Homes and Rehabs listed in our reviews have ttbeen actually visited by Kenneth Whitfield and also verified with independent reviews by residents or patients of these facilities. Not all of my favorite facilities are listed in this site. Some of the Treatment Centers and Sober Living Environments listed here may be considered pricey but don't worry as I have referrals for treatment centers and Sober Living Homes Nationwide. We also have Sober Living Homes that operate as extended care facilities that offer Sober Living and Intensive Outpatient Drug Rehab services with one low payment and can in some cases use P.P.O medical insurance to cover the cost of sober living while enrolled in the outpatient program. Also I never ask a facility for a referral fee as this is an unethical and illegal practice that I do not condone. Most Treatment Centers listed in my reviews accept P.P.O out of network insurance but I do have a few not on this site that actually accept HMO Medical Insurance policies.This included Kaiser and Tri-Care. If a person is financially destitute I have referrals to Non-profit Treatment Centers here in the Los Angeles,County , Orange County and San Bernardino County areas of California. If you are unsure of what Rehab or Sober Living Home is right for you feel free to contact me twenty four hours a day at (424) 202-7426 or email me at

Directory of Sober Living Homes in Southern California

If someone has never attempted to get clean and sober they might not know what a Sober Living Home is and how it can benefit them once they complete a Treatment Program. It is recommended that an Alcoholic or Addict complete treatment first as most Sober Living Homes are not equipped to provide  clinical services and are not licensed to do so.  What these homes do provide is a solid structure to assist the addict or alcoholic in transitioning back into day to day life while being supported by staff that have experience staying clean and sober. Usually most Sober Living staff will have over a year of sobriety or may have a professional certification. Part of the structure at most Sober Living Homes are helping it residents with life skills. Many people forget that those who have lived a life full of drug addiction have a hard time adjusting normal life on their own. This may include teaching residents how to make their bed everyday, wash laundry or even how to find a job.

Picture of what a Sober Living Home might look like in the
 West Los Angeles or
 Malibu areas of California.

 Accountability is something Alcoholics and Addicts avoid as well. That is why a good sober living home will drug test their clients at least twice a week to ensure they are staying clean and sober. They say that nothing good happens happens after midnight and that is very true for addicts and that is why Sober Living Environments apply nightly curfews to their structure along with having residents account for their where abouts when absent from the Sober House. To help promote interpersonal skills most homes will have their residents participate in a weekly house meal to help promote bonding among the household and build healthy relationships. It should be noted that Sober Living is not permanent housing and only temporary. If a resident is kept in Sober Living too long they can possibly become Co-Dependent on the staff or institutionalized. Other things to consider is that Sober Housing should be never be used as a cheap replacement for hospitalization or residential treatment. The results can be deadly if this advice is not adhered to. Most sober houses do not have as many staff on hand to assist their clients. Since the 12 steps has shown the best results post treatment in preventing a relapse most homes will require that those staying in the home attend 4-5 meetings a week and get a sponsor.  Really good sober livings will even require that residents provide some type of community service at a twelve step meeting. Before picking a Sober Living Home be sure to check with their local Sober Living Coaliton and law enforcement for complaints and in some cases even with members of a 12 step meeting in the particular area that the sober living is located within. People often ask why most people want to come to California for Sober Living. Well some of the reasons that California is a popular destination for Transitional Living or Sober Living is that number one the climate change is not drastic and warm year round. One of the other reasons would be is that Southern California has thousands of miles of coastline which are popular recreation areas. If you are looking to attend college or further your career the Southern California area has many vocational colleges and institutions of higher learning and also great public transportation. California also accounts for 15% of the gross domestic output for the United States of America so there is also a higher probability of finding gainful employment here in So Cal.

Directory of Residential Drug Rehabs, Alcoholism and Dual Diagnosis Treatment Centers in Southern California

It is common practice at Southern California Drug Rehabs and Treatment Centers to provide patients with a customized treatment plan. Treatment plans are tailored to not only address issues tied to addiction but other issues that may have went undiagnosed in the past. Some of the undiagnosed issues may include Eating Disorders, Bi-polar Disorder and other various Mental Health Diagnoses. Treatment facilities in this area are normally staffed by a Medical Doctor, Psychiatrist, Marriage Family Therapist and other team members with specialties such as spirituality and life skills. Included in the treatment is also the latest in Evidence based treatment such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. EMDR and Brain spotting. Some our treatment centers also use holistic approaches to combat Depression and other issues related to emotional Trauma such as PTSD and Eating Disorders. This type of treatment may include equine therapy, yoga, breathing exercises and meditation to limit the amount of medication that is prescribed to the patient. The advantage of this type of approach to treatment is that patients are now fully aware of their mental health and addictive liabilities that use to plague them and possibly trigger them back into active addiction. This brings about a whole new view at what addiction looks like and give patients a whole new outlook on life itself. The main goal of this website is to help those in the recovery community and may have a loved one addicted to a substance and providing resources to these families before sending a loved on to a treatment center. One of the reasons that Southern California is a mecca for Mental Health and Substance Abuse Treatment is due to its unique location in the United States. It is no secret that many of those seeking treatment for mental health and drug addiction in California actually end up settling in the local surrounding communities. Southern California has one of the highest densities of Transitional and Sober Housing in the United States and this important for Drug Rehabs and Mental Health facilities when it comes to planning Aftercare for a patient. Many locations for Southern Rehabs can vary from Beach areas in Malibu and Laguna Beach to resort style rehabs in the Riverside County area in towns such as Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage. These communities feature great weather year round with opportunities for patients to rebuild there lives once they complete their program at their treatment center of choice. Some of the opportunities for patients may include resuming their career, returning to school and with the amount of resources available in the private sector and from government resources it would be easy to see why California is one of the most sought after hot spots to recover from addiction or a mental illness.

What is a Residential Drug Rehab?

Today finding out is really Residential Drug Rehab can be confusing with the lines being blurred between what is treatment and what is Sober Living. Pay careful attention as many facilities on Google's search engine  misrepresent themselves everyday. So to help you make an informed decision when sending a family member, friend or loved one to a Residential Drug Rehab I will actually clarify what is actually a Residential Treatment Center as explained by the State of California. First off a clue is the term itself. A true residential treatment center performs ninety percent of clinical services in residential setting. Today an average day at treatment centers in California might look like this. Morning would start with a wake up and call for patients to take prescribed medications. Then breakfast followed up with therapy that might include process groups,one on one with a therapist. Afternoons might include, Yoga, physical exercise ,Equine Therapy, Music or Art therapy. Now here is the kicker groups, meeting with a therapist should be performed at the facility where the patient is residing. This is where the confusion starts. Some treatment centers will bill themselves a residential treatment center when in fact most of the treatment will take place off site at an Intensive Outpatient Treatment Center. This type of treatment center is referred to as a "Florida Model" treatment center. The reason for the name is due to the fact that most treatment centers in Florida use this type of model the skirt state regulations and in actually in use in the state of California as well. Just keep in mind ask lots of questions and you should have no problem finding the right treatment center for your loved one.
Article explaining why you should use a male only or female only Sober Living Home. Those in early recovery can be easily distracted by the opposite sex. This can complicate an addict or alcoholic starting their new life in recovery.

Why you should send a family member to a female or male only Sober Living Home.

Your loved one has just completed a treatment program and you wonder what is next. The staff at the treatment facility recommend that you loved go to a sober living home for a few months while they build a foundation in sobriety. Well for us that have been sober for a while or work in addiction know that the opposite sex being present in the sober living environment can be a huge distraction. It should also be noted that Addicts and Alcoholics tend to change their focus of addiction once they are sober. It is not uncommon for addicts to get out of treatment ,move into sober living and then relapse. If you ask many of those that have relapsed they would tell you that they stopped focusing on their personal recovery and instead got involved with a sexual or emotional relationship. It could be said that relationships could be helpful but for an addict or alcoholic in the first year of sobriety it can actually be devastating. Those that suffer from disorders that involve some type of addiction are usually very emotionally immature and not capable of dealing with rejection or healthy boundaries. It is also easier for addicts and alcoholics to be held accountable for our behavior by those of the same gender as their are not sexual or emotional alterior motives involved. Sober Living Homes that are gender specific might be recommended if a family member has relapsed more than once in a Co-Ed Sober Living Home. This also helps eliminate ethical and boundary issues between staff and clients. Those that are addicted are constantly seeking self gratification or relief from self in one form or another and can either become very abusive or Co-Dependent during the early phases of recovery. If an addict doesn't take the time to find what are the personal defects that hurt them and those that care for they are doomed to fail. It is this reason that most recommend that addicts or those addicted to wait a year as there mind and bodies develop so they can become more emotionally well rounded. It is time bonding with those of the same gender that helps promote this. Some may argue this point but the reality is that is why the majority of sober living homes also know as Half way Houses are now gender specific. So if your loved one keeps relapsing in Co-Ed sober living environments it may be time to make a change and find a gender specific sober living home.

What is a Residential Inpatient Treatment Center?

When looking for a Residential Drug Rehab or Mental Health Treatment Center many questions come to mind for those looking for a loved one. Today there are so many acronyms and terms that would confuse even most doctors. The term Residential Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center or Drug Rehab is one term that actually describes what it means. It basically means that the patient is put into a residential setting while under going treatment for substance abuse or for other mental health issues such as Bi-Polar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder or for Schizo Effective. The reason for this is that it puts the patients in a more familiar home setting that has been proven to be effective for patients. It is recommended if a patient might be a harm to themselves or others that they be placed in a locked mental health hospital until the patient stabilizes. This make take 72 hours to a month. Once the patient is stabilized then it is usually recommended that the patient continues treatment at a Residential Drug Rehab or Mental Health facility for an additional 30-90 days and in some cases up to 180 days depending on the patients progress. The great things about these treatment centers is the fact the patient does not feel that they are incarcerated and therefore able to more easily open up to their Therapist of Psychiatrist and therefore make more progress during the patients recovery.

What is a Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center? How do I know the difference between a Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center and a regular

What is a Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center?

The term Dual Diagnosis was more than likely started to be used at the end of the 1980's. The reason there is a need for a Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center is simple. It is well known in the Mental Health and Addiction Treatment Community that most patient that come into Drug Rehabs have underlying issues that may have been a contributing factor to active addiction. Today the run of the mill Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center simply doesn't cut and explains the poor out comes of only one out of ten Alcoholics or Addicts staying clean and sober after treatment. It underlying and untreated mental health diagnosis such as Eating Disorders, Sex Addiction, Gambling can contribute  to an addict or alcoholic returning back down the road to drinking and using. The other mental  health disorders that may reek havoc in  Dual Diagnosed patients life may be Bi-polar disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder or emotional trauma caused by a violent event or sexual abuse that was never previously reported. Mental Health clinicians over the last twenty years have now started to treat drug addiction and mental illness together. That is why today we have these types of treatment centers. A Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center will usually be in a residential setting with a balanced staff of Psychiatrist, MD, Marriage and Family Therapist and a certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor. This is to bring a balanced approach from a clinical stand point. How can I separate a regular Drug Rehab from a Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center. Well that is easy. Just ask the right questions. Most good Dual Diagnosis Treatment Centers not only have process groups and one on one therapy but all provide evidence based treatment. Evidence based treatment at these types of facilities may include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfullness Training, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and EDMR. These facilities might also offer Yoga, Meditation classes to help patients manage stress and anxiety. One thing to remember that those who are Dual Diagnosed might be required to take a combination of what are referred to as "Psych Meds". A good facility will actually monitor side effects of medication as some of these medications can sedate patients which can contribute to depression or other medications that might amply anxiety which can both contribute to a relapse. If you just keeps these things in mind and ask the right questions if can make a difference between your loved moving back on to the road to recovery or a patients next set back.

What should I take with me to my Drug Rehab?

 This is a question often asked by those getting ready to seek treatment at an inpatient drug rehab. Yes common sense has to be used at this point. You have to remember that you are only going to be in treatment for a few months and not a lifetime. Starting with what you are going to wear. First think about which part of the country you will be staying and what time of year you will be staying at your inpatient treatment center. It is recommended that you take enough clothes for one week as most treatment centers have onsite laundry facilities. Patients should also take with them personal hygene items such as toothpaste, bar soap, deodarant, shampoo and only bring mouth wash that is alcohol free as most treatment centers will throw it out once you are admitted for treatment. Don't not take any over the counter medications to treatment as medication at this point will be dispensed by your primary care provider which is your treatment center. It is also advised that you do not bring a lap top computer of tablet. You are in treatment and contact with outside negative influences like friends you may have used drugs with or co-dependent family members just might trigger you into leaving rehab or with out realizing it actually planning your next relapse. Remember that not everyone is going to be happy with you wanting to be healthy as some of those old so called friends just might be plotting your demise already. Limited contact with family might be recommended as well and the expectations of the addict or alcoholic being cured right a way comes up a lot with family as they don't understand the recovery process and sometimes family member have their own issues resolved before you return home.

How long should I stay in a Sober Living?

How long should I stay in sober living, is frequently asked by those just recently moving into a sober living home after completing a stay at a residential drug rehab.Parents also ask this question due to the fact they are hoping that their loved one will be able to function as they once did before addiction got a hold of them. The transition process should not be taking lightly. Sober Living Homes help the addict or alcoholic put into practice what they learned at their treatment facility while in supported community of those trying to stay clean and sober. One thing thing that alcoholics and addicts resist the most is structure in their lives and a sober living home help re enforce the practice of structure and a healthy daily routine that help those afflicted by addiction become responsible members of society. Just like the stay at a Drug Rehab is determined on an individual basis according to the progress of the patient the same applies to a client staying at a sober living home. One client might be good to go after just four months while others might take up to a year before they are ready to transition on their own in a healthy manner. You have to remember that addiction can be deadly and it is a journey and not a drag race. If these recommendations are not adhered to I have seen those in a hurry to leave sober living to eventually go on and relapse, overdose then end up attending that person's funeral months later. Those that I have seen be patient and take their time have moved on to productive lives clean and sober with numerous years of sobriety under their belt. One of these young men that I helped years ago at nine months moved into his own apartment stayed involved with a 12 step program and stayed in college and now this year 2014 will be celebrating four years of sobriety. How did he do this? Well he wasn't in a hurry to leave sober living and when he did worked with my on his exit plan and if this got rough had a plan of action to maintain his sobriety by stay involved in the recovery process. Like I said it is personal choice but remember that those in a hurry are usually the first ones to relapse.
