Their belief is that a close-knit setting is a healthy set-up for clients new to recovery, because it gives them a chance to develop peer support and build solid friendships.

Accommodations and Amenities
Life Renewal House accommodates eight men in a tidy multi-family home located on a main surface street, with direct access to the 405 and 10 freeways. The house has high ceilings and contemporary furnishings. Clients are lodged in single or double-occupancy rooms, comfortably furnished with contemporary twin beds, nightstands, dressers, lamps and LCD televisions.

A huge private backyard includes a table and chairs, and is used for meetings or meditation. Life Renewal House features in-house staff.
Rules and Regulations
The minimum requirement for house admission is completion of detox, but Life Renewal House prefers clients who have been clean and sober for at least of 30 days. Clients must pass a drug test to be admitted. Requirements for residents include attending between three and four 12-step weekly meetings, being at the in-house meeting, and pursuing a job, academic education or participating in community service. Clients must perform household chores, and make sure that the house is kept immaculate.
The curfew is 10 pm Sundays through Thursdays, and midnight Fridays and Saturdays. While Life Renewal House is based on a 12-step approach, clients are encouraged to seek a feasible recovery curriculum of their own choosing. Non-12-step-based methods are permissible, including SMART Recovery and Refuge Recovery, a Buddhist-oriented recovery practice. Clients undergo random drug testing. At Life Renewal House, relapsed clients are immediately dismissed from the premises.
Life Renewal House is a member of the Sober Living Network, Los Angeles County Sober Living Coalition.
Life Renewal House’s central location is just one of its many assets. Clients are offered a nurturing environment to work on their recovery and life skills, thus enabling a smoother conversion back into society. Life Renewal House is popular—and often full, but potential clients should call and express interest so they can be placed on a wait list.
