Celebrating Recovery In San Diego

“The answers will come, if your own house is in order. But obviously you cannot transmit something you haven’t got. See to it that your relationship with Him is right, and great events will come to pass for you and countless others. This is the Great Fact for us.” – Alcoholics Anonymous pg. 164

A joyful part of staying sober is taking the time to look back on where each of us came from and celebrating the change recovery has brought to our lives.  In our recovery house we take the opportunity to recognize sobriety milestones as often as possible. The primary purpose of a sober celebration is to provide an opportunity for those that are newly sober to be able to witness for themselves the fruits of this way of life.  We want to reinforce as often as possible to our sober house residents that a new sober life is possible for them too.  At Shoreline Sober Living San Diego, we celebrate each and every day where we are no longer chained to the tornado that is our addiction.  Recently, one of our sober house managers, Sean, celebrated three years sober, and we planned a beach party to celebrate the accomplishment.

Anyone that has met Sean would agree that he is a wonderful example of what the twelve-steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, a strong sober community and a willingness to change can do.  He is committed to his program, practices it daily, and leads a life filled with joy. He lives free from the life of imprisonment that his addiction had him trapped in for over 10 years. Sean, like many recovered addicts has a special talent for helping others puts this gift to work everyday. We feel extremely fortunate and blessed to have Sean as a crucial component of our programs success. A successful sober living house should be made up of a balance of structure, discipline, love, accountability and community. Sean and our other sober managers work every day to achieve the most effective balance of these qualities.

If you or a loved one has been in a sober living house where residents were getting loaded, treating each other disrespectfully and management was not present then you certainly understand why we work tirelessly to uphold a higher standard of sober living. We also work closely with other sober living homes in our area to ensure that our community is providing these young men the best possible chance to maintain permanent sobriety.

If you or your loved one are currently considering Sober Living in California or a Recovery home in San Diego we hope that you will reach out to us and take the opportunity to experience the freedom from addiction we have found.  Please call us at (858) 900-5079.
