12 Step Recovery Meetings
Our weekly meetings are open to invited guests, but are primarily for the residents who are interested in voicing issues with the house/community. Some of the residents are clean in Narcotics Anonymous, some in Alcoholics Anonymous, some go to both fellowships. The Garden Sober Living is not allied with either NA or AA, but we support our guests who choose to attend any 12-step meetings.
As an affordable alternative to staying in a high end sober house, The Garden is a laid back, healthy environment for people interested in community living arrangements. We are located Inglewood, just east of LAX on Manchester. The sobriety in West LA is famous around the world, and for a good reason. Sobriety is a celebration of life, and Los Angeles meetings are said by many to be among the biggest and best in the world.
Sharing a room takes some work, but the savings of money compared to renting an apartment and paying utilities goes a long way towards taking the edge off of that work. The work of sharing pays off in another way too, as most addicts and alcoholics are self-centered in the extreme. The sharing of facilities and learning to work together to solve problems and get along in a group environment is a reward in itself.
Transitional housing, as is provided at The Garden Sober Living, is often just the right thing for men who have graduated from a rehab, treatment center, prison or other program and are faced with getting along on the outside of that institution. With our low housing prices, and friendly community, this is a sober living that offers men a real chance at a new way of life.
Proud member of the Sober Living Network, Sober Living Coalition, we are not a chemical dependency treatment program, just a community of men staying clean and sober using 12 step principles.
