    World Class

    Our By The Sea Recovery sober living home offers an objective based and data driven process, 24/7 on site management by a house manager (trained in CPR and First Aid), and the safety of a zero drug and alcohol tolerance environment.


    We have over 5 years of helping guide the men in our care to successful recovery outcomes in sober housing and post-rehab transitional living with a strong clinical support component.

    “Very Friendly staff and a great living facility”

    My brother, we’ll call him James to protect his anonymity, came here after attending their detox and inpatient program. He’s had tremendous success and currently has over six months of sobriety!! James has attended other treatment facilities and sober living homes and liked this one the best. I was able to visit him here and was very impressed by their organization and structure. Very friendly staff and a great living facility. We highly recommend! Thank You Recovery By The Sea
