A Sober Living Environment in Santa Cruz, CA

 "Researchers found that those who live in a sober living environment were 10 times more likely to avoid relapse."

Welcome Home

 A critically important aspect of one's social network is their living environment.

Myrtle Beach House fills the gap between inpatient care and unsupervised, unsupported home life. Our residential home provides a supportive environment for those in the recovery process, allowing them to develop healthy habits that can allow them to stay sober in the years to come. We seek to be a holistic home, not a brick and mortar house.


No matter a person’s age, legal status, recovery challenges or personal history, people who participate in sober living are just regular people. Regular people who ended up with a substance use disorder that just takes more time and attention to continue healing. Most choose to be in sober living, and most are at a point in their life when they are focused on creating a positive future for themselves and their families.
