Founded in 2011 by a recovering addict with over a decade of sobriety, Clean Path Recovery in Costa Mesa, California offers structured, long-term sober living and transitional care to men recovering from chemical dependency. Clean Path Recovery operates seven houses, with five in Costa Mesa and two in Santa Ana. It also provides detox and residential services for men and women which are gender specific and in comfortable surroundings with monitored support 24/7.
Accommodations and Amenities
While each property has a different capacity, all have structured environments and are set up the same style. For example, the Joann Street condominium complex has eight apartment-like units. Each spacious unit accommodates four men. Each furnished apartment includes two bedrooms, a bathroom, a living room and a kitchen. The living room includes a couch and coffee table while the kitchen has a refrigerator, stove and microwave oven.
Men are paired in dorm-style bedrooms that include twin beds and closets. Each apartment has private patios overlooking a sunny courtyard with a landscaped lawn, hedges and trees. Residents obtain food stamp benefits and purchase groceries with their EBT cards. They cook and prepare their own meals. The other sober living complexes include a 15-bed house in Pomona and a 12-bed house in Santa Ana. An onsite manager, who is in recovery and has gone through the program, supervises each complex.
Rules and Regulations
Length of stay is between two weeks and nine months. Prior to admittance, residents must have seven days of abstinence from drugs and alcohol. The first 30 days includes a black out period (no visitors) and a 10:30 pm curfew. Residential rules include maintaining a positive attitude, being out of the house between 10 am and two pm, completing house chores, following curfews, actively pursuing employment, attending mandatory 12-step meetings, working with a sponsor and participating in AA/NA. On Sundays, residents participate in “double scrub” an in-depth house cleaning. All clients receive four drug and alcohol tests per week. While some sober living houses have a zero tolerance policy, Clean Path Recovery tries working with clients that break a rule or get a positive drug or alcohol test result.
Men are provided daily transportation to meetings, to outings and to outpatient treatment, if necessary. Transitional care is offered depending on the clients’ needs. It includes either the Outpatient, Intensive Outpatient (IOP) or Partial Hospitalization (PHP) programs at the main facility. PHP is 30 hours per week, Mondays through Fridays while IOP is ten hours, three days a week. Clean Path Recovery combines the 12 steps with an evidence-based approach. Weekly treatment includes group therapy, individual therapy, psychiatric evaluations (for clients with co-occurring disorders) and attendance at 12-step meetings. Group topics include relapse prevention, trigger identification, core issues, managing emotions, life skills, goal setting and Big Book study.
Clean Path Recovery residents have complimentary access to a gym that includes weights, cardio, fitness classes and personal trainers.
On “Fun Fridays” residents participate in weekly outings in the Orange County area. Events include museum excursions, hiking, trips to the beach and the botanical gardens.
For men seeking a comprehensive 12-step based sober living environment, Clean Path Recovery is a great fit. Accountability and spirituality is the theme here. With a caring staff who are passionate about the 12-steps, residents have opportunities to rebuild a new recovery-based life.
