San Luis Obispo Residential Program

This state-licensed recovery program provides a supportive environment for individuals seeking a life free from the devastating effects of drug and alcohol addiction. Certified counselors and recovery participants incorporate the principles of Social Model recovery, which utilize a peer-oriented, mutual help system that views the participant as a student, not a patient. Residents attend 12-step meetings, get a sponsor, and take personal responsibility for their own recovery. The facility includes shared dorms, a large meeting room, laundry facilities, a meal prep area and a recreational area. Participants attend a variety of activities including community events and volunteer activities. ‘Giving back’ to the community is an important aspect of the recovery process.
