Our Philosophy

We’re a health and wellness community helping men & women achieve self- actualization in a structured, sober environment.
At Riviera Recovery, we believe that wellness stems not just from correcting old behaviors, but from creating new and healthy lifestyle changes. We provide a community that encourages exploration and experiential learning with an impassioned and experienced staff on hand to guide clients toward a new world of freedom, independence, and possibilities. We believe in empowering clients to pursue new passions that last a lifetime. Riviera only accepts a small number of at a time at our Palisades Pacific & West Los Angeles Sober Living locations, which allow our staff to provide individual attention through addiction therapy counseling, activities, and mentoring. Our small number lends itself to a strong sense of community, often sparking lasting friendships that provide support long after your time here at sober living California is over. Our Malibu Beach sober living and West LA residents can find serenity in our beautiful gardens or saltwater pool. We also encourage residents to join us for activities such as yoga, surfing, and paddleboarding. Recognizing the importance of animal companionship, we are pet friendly. Each resident is provided with a private or semi-private suite, fully furnished with an LCD television and wireless internet. Our knowledgeable staff members have years of experience and certification in the field of addiction treatment and recovery and have been residents of Los Angeles for over 30 years, providing an invaluable opportunity to connect with the local sober community and experience the best that LA has to offer. They can also recommend meetings that are best suited for each client, understanding that every person’s substance abuse treatment plan is highly individual. Our staff are always available and will provide transportation to and from 12-step meetings and Outpatient Treatment Programs (IOP). And, as a reminder of the fun and the beauty of a sober living lifestyle, optional house trips are offered, as well as group activities like softball, baseball games and concerts. The experience at Riviera is designed to support your sobriety by creating a safe environment for you to explore a new sober lifestyle, allowing for lasting success at our luxury sober living California home.
