Our principles and rules are based on the 12-step program and geared toward success in handling addiction, as well as succeeding in life. Our staff is committed, through PEER GROUP LEADERSHIP, in assisting our resident’s with all the issues they may face as they strive to attain and maintain lifelong sobriety.
 
Our staff is unique in that we:

The percentages of maintaining a sober lifestyle upon completion of a live-in residential treatment program, followed by residing at a sober living environment for one year, such as New Solutions for Life, Inc, are 60%. Those that choose to go back to their old surroundings without sober living have less than a 4% chance at staying sober. The difference is amazing!

  1. Greetings, I’m ready to transition out from the Substance Abuse Foundation of Long Beach and now I’m looking for a sober living home in the area. I’m funded by the parole department (SASCA) and I was wondering if you accepted that type of funding.

    I’m also interested in more information about your sober living homes. Thanks. W.C.

    1. Hi William sorry I just got your e-mail. I don’t accept that at this time please call me if you can and we’ll talk more 562 436-5090

  2. I’m so happy to read this. This is the type of manual that needs to be given and not the accidental misinformation that is at the other blogs. Appreciate your sharing this greatest doc.

  3. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d without a doubt donate to this brilliant blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to new updates and will share this site with my Facebook group. Chat soon!

  4. Hi,
    My name is Doug. I am about to graduate from the Allen House rehab (a L.A. CADA operated facility) in Santa Fe Springs. I am hoping to be placed in a transitional bed here, but in order to graduate, I have to have a Plan B to show them. I have an application in for SSI and was receiving it in 2008 and 2009 until I went to prison. I was locked up for 4 years so I had to re-apply all over again. I’m not guaranteed to get it, but will be finding out soon. If I DON’T get it, I have to remain unemployed through the appeals process in order to qualify for benefits.
    Presently, I am on GR. I get approximately 200 dollars per month and almost another 200 in food stamps. I would be more than willing to turn over my EBT card with the cash benefits AND food stamps. Also, I would be willing to do any work you need done around there. I can do office work, am literate and articulate. I don’t have much other experience, but I am smart and will do whatever is necessary. I have 5 years of sobriety including 4 1/2 years incarcerated.
    I am in a desperate situation. My mother lives on the east coast and can’t afford to take me in. My ex-wife is in Desert Hot Springs and isn’t an option. There isn’t anybody else. I’ve spent most of my adult life incarcerated and
    I want to hit meetings and stay sober, but I’m looking at being homeless if I can’t get something worked out. My hope is to get a transitional bed here, but to do that, I have to graduate. To request to graduate, I have to have a viable, alternative housing plan should I not get transitional placement. Can you help me?
