Malibu Sober Living

welcome to
Riviera Recovery

Riviera Recovery is a sober living recovery center located on over two acres in beautiful Malibu, California. This 7,000-square-foot facility offers residents the chance to embark on a healthy and vibrant sober lifestyle in Malibu. With guidance from our qualified and experienced staff, residents have the opportunity to maintain their abstinence after completing the challenges of addiction therapy and treatment in a serene and safe community.

Often after substance abuse treatment, many people are exposed to the same influences and situations that helped trigger their alcohol or drug addiction originally. However, when surrounded by a strong sober support system and taught new skills to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle, their likelihood of staying sober increases dramatically. Riviera Recovery offers all the tools necessary for preventing relapse, so that, together, we can embrace sobriety…

  • After several stabs at getting sober, I knew something had to change. I had never before considered sober living, but I knew I had to place myself in a safe, accountable environment, far from negative distractions, and find a new way to live. Riviera provided everything I could have asked for. I came from the East Coast, seeking a place to rediscover myself and unearth new passions and, with the help of the staff and the community at Riviera Recovery, I slowly carved a new, wonderful, sober life for myself. From the safety of Riviera’s walls, I ventured out, tried new things (surfing!), made new friends and, ultimately, re-entered society a happy, whole person again. I couldn’t be more grateful for Riviera Recovery, its kind and caring staff, and my fellow residents.

  • Less than a day after I left rehab, I walked into Riviera Recovery. I was scared, broken, anxious, and ashamed. The very next day, I felt like I could be myself again. During my time at Riviera Recovery, I went through a lot in my life, things that were beyond my control. A friend of mine that I had met several years earlier passed away from from the terrible disease of addiction. If it hadn’t been for the the help of the staff of Riviera Recovery, I don’t know how I would’ve coped with the loss of a dear one. It was because of Paul, Jose and Riviera that I was able to work through any obstacles that I faced. Each day that I spent there, I learned more and more the importance of maintaining sobriety and all the good that comes with it. I have learned that life isn’t always easy, but one thing I have learned as a result of the 3 months that I spent at Riviera is that I can overcome anything no matter how difficult or painful it is. I will be forever grateful to Jose, Paul and the Riviera Recovery for giving me another chance at recovery and another chance at life.

  • Prior to coming to Riviera Recovery, I had been in nine treatment facilities and never managed to stay sober. In fact, many times I would relapse the day I checked out of treatment. While at Riviera Recovery I changed everything. I learned how to live, how to have fun. I traveled, I met really cool people, my eating habits changed, I quit smoking, started exercising, doing yoga, swimming in the ocean, etc., etc.The greatest thing about being at Riviera Recovery was working with Khalil. He went to court appearances with me and helped me repair the damage I caused with my family, whom I had been estranged from. I will be celebrating two years clean and sober next month and am living with my three beautiful children. None of this could have ever happened without Khalil.
