There are endless sober livings and halfway houses that give residents the basic needs of sobriety. What sets Sustain Recovery apart is that our home is fully licensed with the California Department of Social Services to provide quality care to adolescents suffering from substance use disorder and other co-occurring disorders. This allows us to provide highly individualized care that assists the specific needs of each resident. With one staff for every three residents, as well as a maximum of six residents per house, we have found a cost-effective model that is unparalleled in the industry today.
We provide a safe and structured affordable Peer Supportive Recovery Residence in which our adolescents are able to maintain a meaningful and fun way of life without drugs or alcohol. Our day treatment program, in which all residents attend, provides medical and psychiatric services, individual resident guidance, life skills training, individual therapy, counseling, group therapy, family therapy, school, and additional educational and vocational training which are all ongoing elements of the Extended Care process. Involvement in a Twelve Step program is mandatory and Sustain Recovery is a Twelve Step, abstinence-based home.
With the support and safety net of the Sustain Recovery staff and community, our residents have a structured schedule, which applies the same degree of structure as treatment, in a way that integrates the necessary, healthy living skills needed in the real world.
