Our Playa Del Rey sober living home is centrally located near the beach, downtown, and LAX international airport. Playa Del Rey, a neighborhood located in Southern California, is a safe, mostly residential, beachside community. Bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west, Playa Vista to the northeast, Westchester to the east, and El Segundo to the South, Playa Del Rey offers residents access to the entirety of the Southern California region.
Young men living at our Playa Del Rey area location have access to a wide variety of nearby resources. Playa Del Rey is home to a thriving addiction recovery community. Residents of our sober living home attend daily 12-step meetings in Playa Del Rey and adjacent neighborhoods. The neighborhood is also centrally located so residents can easily meet their other recovery needs, including psychiatric and medical help.
While sober fun may seem like an oxymoron to a newly sober person, the vast offerings of Playa Del Rey may change your mind. Going out and enjoying life is possible for sober young men, and it’s vastly easier when they have the support of the sober community that residents cultivate at Design for Recovery. Beyond the pressing needs of addiction recovery, our sober living in the Playa Del Rey area grants residents access to a multitude of fun activities and attractions. Residents take trips to the park to blow off steam. Grocery stores and other shopping centers are only a short walk away. Playa Del Rey is also a short drive away from a number of different well-known destinations. These include:
Venice Beach is often one of the first places visitors to Southern California go. Its beachside boardwalk is known to be frequented by eccentric characters and street entertainers, making it a great place for people-watching. It also offers shopping, skating, and a bicycle path. There’s something for just about everybody here. And while you’re here, don’t forget to stop by the Venice Canals Walkway, with its man-made wetland canals.
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.
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.
Most people with addictions suffer from a number of other conditions as well. Having an addiction increases the likelihood that a person will develop physical and mental health disorders. Likewise, those with mental illness tend to turn to addictive substances as a form of self-medication.
For many, getting help for addiction is an opportunity to recognize, often for the very first time, a need to recover from these other underlying conditions. Having comorbid conditions can complicate the recovery process, but Design for Recovery is committed to offering all residents the care and individualized approach they need. This often includes a combination of mentoring and pharmacological treatments. With a trained and dedicated staff on call 24 hours a day, every medication is diligently monitored, counted, and tracked in a well-organized filing system. Learn more here.
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.
It really depends on the individual and their progress in recovery. Some people may need to stay in a sober living home in Playa Del Rey for a few months, while others may need to stay for a year or more.
Some homes have specific rules about pets, such as breed or size restrictions. Some studies show that pets can play a huge role in addiction recovery. Pets provide companionship, love, and support during this difficult time. While pets are not allowed in all sober living homes, many do allow pets.
