If you own or operate a quality sober living home in Southern California, you are eligible for membership in a local Sober Living Coalition. See below for the counties where they currently operate. Membership identifies your house as being safe, clean, well-managed and ethical. Members also share in the decades of collective experience of some of the best sober living providers today. They have the means to stay current with best practices nationwide. They’re informed about legal and regulatory events affecting their operations, and the lives of the recovering individuals they serve.
Membership applications are made to the county coalition where your home is located. Each coalition requires that applicants COMPLETELY PREPARE their membership material FIRST – THEN CALL FOR INSPECTION APPOINTMENTS. Ensure that your house is fully prepared to meet the coalition’s health, safety and management requirements, described in the material below.
Before you begin, you should familiarize yourself with the membership process and the areas of your operation that will be reviewed for compliance with your coalition’s standards. Read your Coalition’s overview of requirements and pre-inspection guidelines below.
