About Riviera Recovery Sober Living Homes

At Riviera, we believe that wellness stems not just from correcting old behaviors, but from creating new and healthy lifestyle changes. We have two different programs/homes in order to create safe space for young adults to heal from substance abuse and mental health disorders. Our sober living and transitional housing programs help individuals bridge the gap between treatment and the real world for the long-term. Our team aims for every client to leave our program with a plan for their life.

A Message from our founder

As Director of Riviera Recovery, my goal is to help clients continue their transition from the protected and supportive environment of a treatment center to living well and happily in the “real” world. The program we’ve designed includes personalized plans that enable all clients, including those with substance use or mental health disorders, to hone in on life skills, education, and workplace integration to sustain a full and satisfying life.

    I was a client at Riviera and so enjoyed my experience living there. The biggest thing that stuck out to me was how much the staff genuinely cared and how hard they ALL work to help. The owners, Kate and Jose, spent time helping me with a resume, making sure I was okay, helping my family during a tough situation, and personally reaching out to people to increase my support network.

    I have referred a few clients and one in particular. They did a stellar job in addressing his addiction and medication regimen and applied life skills, love and support. He is having success and working! For all male dual diagnosis I always think of this program!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is transitional living or sober living?
    Transitional or sober living are programs that help ease people into their new, recovered lives. During sober living, clients will be taught invaluable skills that will drastically increase the chances of maintaining a fulfilling, sober life. Sober living is different from residential treatment, in the sense that sober living is long term and does not include a structured therapeutic program.  Instead, clients are taught skills such as budgeting, job searching, maintaining a clean living space, and more. Clients will be randomly drug tested and checked in each night and transportation to and from clinical meetings will be provided. For clients that are not engaging in 12 step programs for addiction, we encourage a variety of other support meeting types.
  • Will food be provided at Riviera Recovery Sober Living?
    Yes. Clients will receive a food card each week to help them learn shopping and budgeting skills. Our staff works with each client to help them meal plan and work on creating a healthy, nutritious shopping list.
  • What is the recommended length of stay?
    Each person is unique, so it is best to consult a member of the staff. The minimum recommended stay is 90 days, however, clients can decide whether or not to continue their residency at the end of each month. We traditionally see the best outcomes between 6 months and 1 year of stay.
  • How do your recovery mentors help?

    Our recovery mentors help with basic case management. Case management is a hands-on program. Our team will make sure the client is attending meetings and meeting with their sponsor regularly (if that is a part of their treatment plan), actively participating in-house activities, and attending all doctor/ therapy appointments. They will also supervise client taking medication, provide additional transportation if necessary, and keep an open line of communication with the client’s treatment team, which may include therapists, doctors, outpatient team, etc. Additionally, they work with each client to make sure they are working out, getting proper nutrition, and are working towards gainful employment or continued education.

    If your client/loved one requires more intensive monitoring or case management, we can also provide increased, one on one support for an additional fee.

  • Are clients able to visit Riviera Recovery after they move out?
    Absolutely! We have an open door policy for all of our clients. We encourage them to come back and visit any time, continue to participate in group activities, and attend our weekly in-house meeting.
