Casa Nuevo Vida offers you the choice of three luxurious recovery homes. Our westside men’s recovery homes are in Cheviot Hills and on the beach in Playa del Rey. Our women’s recovery home is located in Cheviot Hills. For those not familiar with Los Angeles, Cheviot is located between Beverly Hills and Santa Monica. It is a fantastic location close to all westside recovery meetings and outpatient programs.

Our homes are all inclusive–offering meals, transportation, random drug and alcohol testing, court and legal liaisons, counseling, and in-house meetings. As the perfect place to achieve serenity, tranquility and sobriety, our homes are dedicated to providing clients a solid foundation and keys to a new life.

As recovering alcoholics and addicts ourselves, we understand how difficult it is to re-enter society following treatment. We know the hardships, the struggles, and the challenges of maintaining sobriety without a network of support. It is this provision of support, in addition to our unique outlook on life as sober individuals, which set us apart from other standard recovery homes.

Where Does My Journey Start?

The truth is, an individual’s journey to sober living starts once they achieved full recovery from a substance addiction. For some, they might not have any idea how sober living works but there are also some people who’re aware of what it is about and how it works. Most of the times, if an individual – suffering from a substance addiction – tries to overcome addiction on their own, there’s a big chance that they won’t be successful. Why is that? It’s simply because they’re not aware that the environment they’re living in is filled with temptation that their body can’t handle. No matter where they go, where they look, there would always be temptation, and this is definitely a big no no for individuals suffering from addiction. At Casa Nuevo Vida, we make sure that your body would be free from drug and alcohol. Besides having a drug and alcohol free body, we would also make sure that you’ll be taught on how to deal with temptation. For some, it might not sound possible but the truth is, it really is possible. Temptations exist to tempt us but that doesn’t mean you can’t avoid it. You just need to learn how to deal with them and eventually, live with them without being tempted.

How Can Sober Living Help Me?

Sober living – hearing these two words, you’ll most likely understand what it’s about. Technically, it gives you everything that you need to know about it. The only common misconception about sober living is that people think it’s the same with rehabilitation. You can say they’re the same, but the truth is they’re not totally the same. In rehabilitation, the individual will undergo a number of processes wherein they’ll need to overcome their dependency on drug and alcohol addiction. They are mainly focused on how they could remove their “craving”, their need for the substance. Unlike in sober living wherein the individuals are already drug and alcohol free. Sober living is mainly focused on teaching and helping individuals in coping up with the huge changes that they’ll undergo upon recovering from substance abuse up to going back to their normal lives. An individual can never be called fully recovered until he or she could live with the substances – that caused their addiction – without being tempted. They need to learn how to deal with them and accept the fact that temptation is everywhere, that it’s part of life. At Casa Nuevo Vida, we want to help you as much as we can. We want what’s best for you in order to recover from your addiction that is why we have staffs that you could always talk to if you need anything or you just need someone to talk to.

What Is a Sober Living Environment?

Sober living environments also known as SLEs are places or facilities wherein people suffering from substance addiction go to. It is the facility that they need to go to right after they finish taking their rehab. Some people might be wondering why individuals – who recovered from substance abuse – couldn’t go home immediately right after their rehab. Well, the truth is, they haven’t achieved full recovery yet. Full recovery could only be achieved when the individual can finally go back to their normal life, the life wherein the substance that caused their addiction could be found everywhere they go. Once an individual can finally live with the substance without using them, then that’s the only time that they could tell their self that they already achieved full recovery. At Casa Nuevo Vida, we provide sober living environments that are especially made for people suffering from substance abuse. Sober living environments are very important to recovering individuals simply because they are the ones who are helping these individuals cope up with the changes that would happen in their lives. These facilities also serve as their support whenever they feel that their body is starting to look for the substance once again. SLEs are made based on how it can help the patient to achieve full recovery.

How a Sober Living House Works

Sober living house is just like a normal house but the only difference is that it is especially made for recovering individuals. However, it’s a kind of house wherein you can’t find any traces of your old life. At Casa Nuevo Vida, one thing that we want people to stop thinking when it comes to sober living houses is that it’s not a place for them to suffer. They should stop considering sober living houses as an enemy. Honestly, they should even love it. Living in sober living houses is not like living in a prison. There are even some facilities wherein it feels like you’re living in a resort and this is what people should start thinking about these facilities. Sober living houses are places where they could enjoy. It is also something that they could consider as one of their stepping-stones in starting a new life. Sober living house works in ways people never thought of. It’s never about the suffering. It’s about helping and making the recovering individual enjoy life.

What Is Transitional Living?

Transitional living is more focused in helping the individuals who are successful in completing an inpatient type of rehab and individuals who didn’t attend any treatment facility but still believed that they could start their life once again and also believes that they just need someone to help them with it. At Casa Nuevo Vida, the transitional living program that we offer follows a specific gender recovery model. This is an important thing because we want to consider that there’s a lot of difference between men and women, not only psychological but also physical. There are some who are not aware of how effective the gender-specific recovery model programs is, there are a number of studies that shown there’s a higher percent of success for those who apply to gender-specific program compared to a program designated for both men and women. Gender-specific recovery model programs is indeed a great program for recovering individuals because they are free to talk about anything they want especially when it comes to topics that are only unique to their gender, topics that they couldn’t talk about if they’re taking the program that is designated for both men and women.

How Soon Can I Get Help?

Since an individual needs to be drug and alcohol free before he or she could go to sober living, an individual could start as soon as he or she finishes attending their rehab. Once every process or step in their rehabilitation is done, they could immediately start with sober living. All recovering individuals should keep in mind that the sooner they start sober living the better. It is a must to go straight to sober living environments right after rehab in order for them not to have any chance of going back to their old self. While everything is still fresh, better start working on how to prepare yourself in living a normal life once again. People might think it would be weird for recovering individuals not to go straight to their normal lives after rehab. Honestly, recovering individuals are like kids once again because you can’t let them explore the world immediately. You need to guide and help them in doing the right thing and not making them go back to their old substance addicted self ever again.
