Otherwise, you won’t be looking for a sober living home right now. Many people realize that living in a sober home is not only helpful, but often necessary for them especially during the earlier stages of their recovery from drug addiction or alcoholism. This is why we provide a clean, safe, supportive and fun environment for all individuals who are not quite ready to live a completely sober life.

We Provide You the Keys to a New Life

If you are looking for an environment that will help you sustain an alcohol and drug-free lifestyle, look no further than the Casa Nuevo Vida recovery homes. Casa Nuevo Vida provides a warm home geared towards promoting a healthy and happy living. An elegantly designed and luxuriously decorated environment, Casa Nuevo Vida is not just a structure with beds and meals—it is much, much more! Our name, Casa Nuevo Vida, which stands for “House of New Life”, should give you an insight on what our services provide. We offer a new and original approach to sobriety – a hybrid of “treatment” for sober living.

We Treat Every Resident Equally

Whether you are 16 or 61, we treat each resident with respect, and everyone is treated equally. We believe that a peaceful environment is the key to making life-long friends who help them in their path to recovery. While we are proud of our programs, it is ultimately our residents who find the courage to overcome their fears and live a sober life with the help of our community.

We Lead by Example

We believe that leading by example is the best way to help our residents. We understand that it is our duty to guide our residents towards a clean, healthy and sober path. We lead by example according to our principles of honesty, faith, integrity, willingness, humility, perseverance, spirituality, love and service. Our staff is trained to provide a positive example. As many of us have experienced transitional living ourselves, we attest to the benefits of a sober life and we are always ready to listen and give advice.

We Instill Responsibility in Our Residents While Maintaining a Sense of Freedom

We employ an effective system of accountability in our homes. We instill responsibility in our residents while maintaining freedom for each individual. Every resident is responsible for their actions, but we make sure that rules are followed and the rights of every person are respected. We are proud to say that this system that we have result in the growth of the people who live in our homes.

We Believe that the Recovery Process Should be FUN and Does not Have to be Stressful!

Here at Casa Nuevo Vida, we make sure that our residents have fun while they try to recover from addiction. We believe that having fun is MORE FUN when you are clean and sober. Clean, sober living is what we strive for. We promise that it will not be a boring experience. Instead, we will work with you and your family through exciting and rewarding stages of substance recovery. Our individualized and comprehensive treatments increase a resident’s ability to recover more quickly.

What our client say

"My son is a recovering drug addict, alcoholic and has been clean and sober while living at Casa Nuevo Vida for six months, after he was released from detox. The help he has received there is priceless. For the first time in many years he is living a happy, sober life. There is extreme care and attention given to each individual living at Casa Nuevo Vida. The atmosphere is one of belonging to a family. David looks after each individual as would a good parent. The home is very comfortable and the food, prepared by Chef David is excellent. I have nothing but the best to say about Casa Nuevo Vida and thank whatever powers may be that my son has had the opportunity to partake in their sober living program."

David’s continuous demonstration of his hands-on involvement in our son’s success in sobriety and making positive lifestyle changes is sincere and genuine. He is all about investing himself in the process. My son did not arrive in great shape… David’s support of him, (and us as his parents..me especially) has been truly life-changing. I am so grateful to him for his kindness, friendship, caring supervision and sensible guidelines that have helped our son recognize and make good choices in his daily life.

Our son is doing great, and on a path that is the right one. We are so proud of the positive changes we have seen in our son these past couple of months and his future looks bright. My husband and I needed to move out of the area as had been planned for quite some time, and we were able to move on with our plans with the comfort of knowing our son was in the “right” living environment and was going to better than “fine” at Casa Nuevo Vida. Any parent who has been through what we have been through, understands the gravity of such words. I mean this from my heart; whether you are young, old, single or married, I have seen what David Marvin does.. and how he and others interact in his home. What he has done for our son…I say to myself, “amazing.”"

"Casa Nuevo Vida is what real sober livings should aspire to be! I spent approximately 9 months in this house and unlike other sober livings where one is treated like a client, at Casa Nuevo Vida I was treated like family. The men at Casa Nuevo Vida became my family. We were a group of men that were lost, wondering aimlessly about the nation, thinking that we were living. We were men who believed that success was measured by the jobs that we held, the money we earned, and the material possessions that our families were providing us. I slowly experienced a transition and was able was to care for and be of service to those around me. I came to understand that the relationships I developed were far more important than the “things” I spent most of my life trying to acquire. We believe that you must “walk the walk” and not just “talk the talk”! The owner/manager of Casa Nuevo Vida, David Marvin, lives his life this way on a daily basis. By having someone who truly “walks the walk” around you 24/7, I was finally able to understand my priorities, and put them in order, – sobriety, family and service to those I come in contact with on a daily basis. Today I can honestly say without an inkling of doubt that My Days are Bigger than My Dreams! Thanks David!"

"Jesse was embraced and supported by David and the other residents. Within a very short time, he felt right at home.This continued a very important part of his journey in recovery. Jesse was held to task for a series of responsibilities, including attending daily meetings, participating in household chores and securing a sponsor that would help him through the 12 step program. With David’s continual loving guidance and his diligence in the 12 step program, he remains clean and sober today. As parents we remain comforted in knowing that David and the other residents of the house are always there for Jesse. We can’t say enough about the care he got at Casa Nuevo Vida. We thank David with all our hearts."

"I have never written a testimonial. If you had met me nine months ago, you would never have thought this was possible; either me being clean and sober, or even being alive. For sure as the sun rises, nobody could have dreamed that I would have six months of continued sobriety today!. Closer to the truth yet, is that if you had told me of such a thing, I would have doubled over, except for the fact that I was always doubled over back then anyway!"

"Casa Nuevo Vida (CNV), the house of new life! For me, the house of another chance, the house of hope, faith, recovery, serenity and a place, a very special place to get well again, or maybe as in my case for the very first time. What I do for a living has no bearing, since this disease does not discriminate. How old I am also has no bearing, since when I first walked in the doors of CNV I was greeted by eight other men all of which were somewhere between 18 and 65 years of age. So here I was, sitting in the back yard smoking with eight other men, struggling to put two damn words together! Yes, I was broken! Yes, I was torn up! Yes, I was scared! But, when some of these men spoke to me, I actually thought I knew them. Not that I really knew them, but there was a familiarity, an instant fellowship of sorts. I felt something I had not felt in many, many years…some acceptance and a little bit of peace!"

" Morning Meditation” The first time I was woken up at 7:45am I thought I was going to die, since that is what time I use to get home after a night out. Somehow I pulled myself up, grabbed a cup of coffee and my smokes and crawled(half joking) outside to join the rest of the guys. It was beautiful, well maybe it was me feeling some gratitude in the fact that I was still breathing after almost dying(several times). Over the next weeks, then months I never had to be woken again. Somehow I came to understand that when I got up, greeted the day, and shared with my fellow addicts, it was the most serene way for me to engage in life! I believe that meetings are important, actually more than important, and I need to start my day by surrendering to my higher power. I had to give thanks and at the same time, make myself available to others and therefore ultimately starting my day with being of service."

"I cannot say that every morning was inspired, but what a blessing it is to sit early in the morning, feel the sun on your face, and hear laughter from men who but a moment before were strangers. Strangers whose names were mumbled and lost in the hurried handshakes when greeted for the very first time. Now these suddenly familiar faces shone in the morning light as they shared their deepest thoughts with one another. I like to keep it simple, try it, just for thirty days…if I am wrong(and trust me haven’t been yet) you can always go back to drifting too sometime around noon…I mean that is if you still have another run left in you!"

"Daily Meetings” I was told it was a prerequisite to attend one meeting a day to stay at CNV. Let me just say that I hated meetings! I thought…what a waste of time! This I think is routed in the fact that I always felt superior to everyone my entire life! Lol! The things we learn in sobriety and early recovery! We all hear the same things, “go to a meeting if either you want to and if you don’t want to!” Where do they get these sayings? I really don’t care! All I know is that they work! In my early recovery at CNV, I lost two dear friends to this disease. One my ex-girlfriend and the other a childhood friend that was like my brother. I still have no real idea how I got through either or both of these challenging times clean, but I did through the grace of God(my higher power) and with the support of my fellow addicts and alcoholics. What is amazing is that men and women who seem to be so fragile and weak, that they will break into pieces in a moment, can be the pillars of strength to another in need! My fellows have held me up, carried me through and kept me going in the darkest hours of my life. If someone truly does not understand the value of a meeting, then they have never truly surrendered!"

"The great thing about LA is that there are more meetings in this town and surrounding areas than I believe anywhere in the world. We have old peoples meetings, young peoples meetings, cool peoples meetings, not so cool peoples meetings, last stop meetings and even the tattoo peoples meetings..I mean whatever you are, we have it covered! Find a meeting you like and make it your home group! It’s more than important, it is the difference of staying sober, being dry and going out! And for all of you like me, who sometimes are shy or too cool for the room, get up and get your newcomer chip…get thirty for your first thirty days, you can trade those up later for a healthy and long life…sober…one day at a time!"

"Ten at Ten” One of the most important things at CNV, and unique.In my books, simply brilliant! Why so excited? Simple! I explained how “Morning Meditation” kicks off your day right? Well, ten at ten is the perfect bookend to a day/ Being able to end my day going over gratitudes and resentments, was truly a saving grace for me to make it through my early recovery! It allowed me to clear out my head, regain some serenity and check in with my fellows at the house. If you don’t believe me, then why is it on any night of the week, you will find CNV Alumni hanging around at ten, friends of people staying there, guests visiting in town, people from the Thursday night House meeting staying as well! CNV is known for its gratitude on many levels! The people who come to our Thursday night meetings in the backyard know exactly what I am talking about! With The Ten AT Ten, you have the perfect way to wrap up a day of full recovery and actually have a peaceful mind to get some sleep! For me, it was my favorite time, and most important fellowship that I ever experienced! I recall almost every Ten at Ten that I experienced at CNV. It was a time that I hold with me now. It still keeps me strong and makes me remember just how thankful I am to be sober and alive today!"

"Casa Nuevo Vida was the place that allowed me to have the strength to recover. David Marvin is a man charged with a most difficult task indeed. To own and run a sober living with so many individually demanding people all in various stages of early recovery…well extremely difficult would not do it nor he justice! However, David somehow is able to juggle and balance the near impossible, in a miraculous fashion. I use to say CNV saved my life! I use to say David saved my life! I used to say that AA saved my life! Today, I know now that places, people and things cannot do such a thing, but I do believe that it was such a key ingredient in my recovery that words are hard to muster to truly express my deep gratitude. It is important that you understand just how bad I was when they took me in. I had been on a very long run, I was at the tail end of ten years and had ended up in the hospital several times. Even my family, God love them, were at the end of their rope. All my friends were gone, how could they have been expected to stay? To bury me? It was in a very, very dark place. I remember sitting in the backyard my first night, talking with some of the men and thinking that I never wanted to go to sleep! I felt that I did not want to wake up dead..The irony, after all the years trying to harm myself and killing myself slowly..now I wanted to live! I made a promise to myself that I would stay 30 days. Nobody in my life at that time believed I actually would! Well, I did stay… I stayed 5 months! I stayed until it almost became a joke that I would never leave!"

"When I came to Casa Nueva Vida I was bankrupt in every area of my life. The compassionate, structured environment helped me build a foundation for my sobriety. The morning meditations groups, the group therapy, daily attendance at 12-step meetings and a house manager that is always there to help you tackle any problems that may arise, went a long way in helping me piece together a shattered life."
