Playa Del Rey Sober Living Home

Design for Recovery’s Playa Del Rey sober living home provides a safe and comfortable base for young men to involve themselves in the community and to thrive as new and growing individuals.

Built in 2007 with a dramatic architectural style, our Playa Del Rey home offers all modern amenities. This spacious home boasts almost 4,500 square feet. With 5 bedrooms, the residence offers residents the best in luxury living. Bedrooms feature walk-in closets, distressed hardwood flooring, and balconies. Each bedroom comes with its own private bathroom, which has granite counters, multiple showerheads, and tumbled travertine tile.

The family room, which residents use to relax and hold house meetings, has its own fireplace and a skylight. Perhaps more importantly, this is where our entertainment system is. Boasting a high-end television and surround sound, residents often congregate in the family room for recreation. Built-in bookshelves offer residents opportunities to educate themselves or get lost in a story. A sliding glass door opens up to a patio and yard, where residents often go to exercise or blow off steam.

The kitchen is designed for gourmet cooking, and residents take advantage of its cutting edge appliances to cook healthy and delicious meals for themselves — and often for the house residents as a group. Granite counters, a center island, stainless steel appliances, and a walk-in pantry make it ideal for any budding chef. An eating area with a bay window offers residents a relaxing alcove in which to dine together.

Living in such a nice home can in some ways feel like a luxury vacation, but at Design for Recovery we see this as an opportunity for growth, skill-acquisition, and character-building as well. Residents work daily to maintain the home. Daily chores and cleaning duties allow them to take responsibility for their own living arrangements. While new residents may at first find this arduous, given enough time, most of our young men come to take pride in making their own home clean, comfortable, and livable.

Sober Living Services for Residents at Playa Del Rey

Through the application of a supportive community and an environment that uses principled living as the main ingredient for change, design for recovery helps young men find a passion for life within themselves.

Our Mission at Playa Del Rey Sober Living Home

Design for Recovery implements a structured, 12 Step-based program centered on the principles of honesty, integrity, accountability, responsibility, and service to rebuild lives. We understand that addiction is a complicated disorder that affects all aspects of a person’s life. We also recognize that achieving sobriety is about more than merely staying away from addictive substances; real sobriety is an ongoing process involving rebuilding ones life from the ground up. We aim to provide our residents with the skills and tools they need to live happy, free, and prosperous lives in sobriety. While developing these skills, residents repair relationships and reflect on the underlying issues that drove them to addiction.

However, no one gets sober alone. Addiction is often referred to as a disease of isolation. As such, we believe it is crucial that residents recover in a community context, forging relationships with other young men who are similarly committed to living quality sober lives. The relationships that young men develop at Design for Recovery remain with them years after graduation. As residents work on their own recovery, they place themselves in a stronger position to help others and become mentors and leaders in the recovery community. At Design for Recovery, we believe that a sober social support system is not only a strong bulwark against relapse — but also the foundation for a joyous life down the road.

The cost of sober living varies depending on the location, how much structure the program offers, and what benefits and amenities are available. For example, some sobriety houses include weekly drug testing, transportation to 12-Step meetings, and employment support—and these extra services come at a higher price than places that don’t offer them. But often it’s cheaper to live in a sobriety house than to go solo because rent is split among several people.
