Local Groups

Southern California has six county groups – Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego and Ventura County Sober Living Coalitions. The L.A. County Coalition, due to its size, is organized as five local area chapters.  Riverside County also has a Desert area Chapter.

Want to join your local sober living coalition?

For operators of sober living homes in one of these Southern California Counties, we’ve created a whole section just for you.  If we don’t currently have a Coalition in your county, give us a call.

Coalitions and chapters meet on a regular basis.  Meetings are open to everyone.

Each Coalition has codes of ethics and acceptance guidelines. The Coalition organizations administer the assessment programs that ensure health, safety, cleanliness, management and ethical guidelines. Coalitions also administer dispute and grievance resolution programs, addressing complaints from residents, former residents and from the general public.  Local coalition and chapter meetings are valuable opportunities for members to exchange information and to discuss regulatory, addiction/recovery, health care and recovery programs.

The Network

The Sober Living Network provides a great deal of expertise, which forms the basis for training workshops on sober living management, available to the general public. The Network also provides a clearinghouse on matters of importance to various recovery issues. We are a resource in the regulatory and legislative arena as well, from local zoning ordinances to statewide licensing and regulation. Board Members and staff are often called upon to give testimony, meet with government officials and provide other assistance in forming public policy.

The Network increases the public’s understanding of the need for quality sober living services, and the increased funding of these services to the community.  Sober living is effective and cost-beneficial in helping people achieve long-term recovery.  Achieving an increased public awareness and understanding is necessary to attract resources needed to provide sober living opportunities to all who need them.

The Network is also supportive of the revival of community-based recovery support services.  The Venice Recovery Center (VRC) was established and is supported by the Network.  Day-to-day operations are managed by a volunteers. Currently the VRC hosts over 30 recovery support activities each week.
