For Young Adults
As part of the TEACH Program, all student residents are required to attend daily 12-step meetings both on and off the premises. Ongoing treatment includes relapse prevention and education on developing sober leisure skills and sober college friendships. The program includes monitored study periods, computer equipment and tutorial services, if needed. College credits are transferable to most accredited colleges and universities in the United States. This program was first developed with Saddleback Community College, creating a fully supervised and accredited education program. Now residents are also enrolling at other area colleges and universities, including the University of California Irvine and California State University, Fullerton.
Residents at Sober Living by the Sea self-pay, though they may be able to recoup some costs through insurance, and a foundation has been established to help defray the costs for some.
