About Herbert Sober Living House
A benchmark in the Los Angeles, CA addiction recovery housing community for over 20 years…
They go by various names; sober living homes, recovery houses, transitional aftercare housing and so on. Here in Southern California, specifically Los Angeles, the common reference is “sober living home.” More important however, is the core of who they are, how they operate, and their knowledge & experience within the realm of addiction and mental health recovery.
Herbert House’s philosophy is about emphasizing communal support, personal responsibility and education about recovery while pursuing a solid individual recovery plan that will ultimately serve as the foundation to everything meaningful in life. Our experience is that the best chance at creating a proactive sober community intent on reclaiming the positive aspects of their lives, prior to addiction taking over, is to work with men; either professionals or pursuing their education, restructuring their family life, volunteering or even attending outpatient treatment. Our semi-structured and upscale sober living residences – which require two mandatory in-house meetings, minimal house chores, random drug & alcohol testing, self evaluations and general self accountability measures – still leaves ample room for a personalized recovery plan based on the individual.
We believe, in fact we know, that a man’s ability to fulfill and maintain his obligations is essential to his recovery. We allow and even encourage the flexibility to meet those responsibilities. Herbert House observes liberal curfews; overnight and long-term passes are also issued following 24-hour written request. These policies are intended to encourage growth and personal responsibility while still maintaining the balance and integrity of each resident’s individual recovery program.
Herbert House Sober Living remains among the most well regarded, semi-structured upscale sober living residences throughout West Los Angeles, CA (Culver City & Marina Del Rey).
As a worldwide leader in addiction-alcoholism treatment & recovery services, Southern California began to see the advent of sober living homes around the mid 1990’s. With only a handful of these addiction recovery residences here in the Los Angeles, CA area, it didn’t take long for the few good ones to rise above. It was soon after that a general consensus was developing among experienced addiction treatment professionals, that being an awareness to the importance of “quality” sober living/transitional recovery housing during one’s early sobriety.
Since its founding in 1995, Herbert House Sober Living (Recovery Support Residence) has been at the forefront of this revolution in the approach to addiction recovery support. Based upon decades of practical recovery experience, we have outlined a semi-structured, “real-life” approach to early sobriety that has shown to reduce the prodigious rate of relapse among those struggling with substance abuse, alcoholism and process addictions. Over the years, the Herbert House approach has been adopted as a model by others and recognized by The Southern California Sober Living Coalition, a non-profit oversight committee representing nearly every qualified transitional recovery residence throughout Southern California.
Our recovery Residents
Herbert House, designed around the needs of mature men seeking recovery – a different type of recovery residence from anything else throughout West LA…
Our focus is on Men, ages 25 and up, who are mature in how they live and conduct themselves. Minimal structure helps our residents maintain their sobriety while still allowing them to meet their responsibilities. Herbert House attracts educated, working men as well as those currently enrolled in college or otherwise aspiring to become contributing members of society. Many of our residents also attend outpatient treatment during their stay at Herbert House Sober Living. The residents of Herbert House, despite their past or recent struggles with addiction and/or alcoholism, are responsible enough in their sobriety to wake up each morning and engage in life as a productive member of society.
For those who struggle with extreme dual-diagnosis, or who are in need of a more rigid structure and constant monitoring, Herbert House may not be the right fit. While Herbert House does have an onsite, 24/7, staff presence, the purpose for this lies more in offering guidance and ongoing support for those dealing with inherent life issues. For example, a resident may have recently been reprimanded at work and is struggling with cravings to drink or use as a means of calming stress created by the situation. While this is an unfortunate and sometimes painful event, forging through this pain and emerging on the other side can be a monumental victory for a man who once would numb the pain rather than push through it. Our experienced staff offers residents guidance to help them carve new patterns for living life as a mature, sober man.
