Located in the Los Angeles area, NuLife Treatment Centers sober living is the structured living component of the NuLife Treatment Centers. Luxury sober living in gender-specific homes is provided for those opting to live in a safe environment while they undergo outpatient treatment at the clinical facility. NuLife was founded in 2013 by two entrepreneurs who are also in recovery. Based on personal experiences, they were inspired to create an alternative to the traditional treatment experience. NuLife’s treatment continuum is client-centered and treats the causes and conditions of addiction rather than just the symptoms of the disease. NuLife’s sober living offers structure and support in an upscale environment.
Accommodations and Amenities
NuLife has two gender-specific homes. The houses are located on quiet residential streets, and include landscaped yards and pristine shrubbery. Each residence accommodates between eight and 10 clients, all paired in spacious rooms, which include full or queen beds, nightstands, lamps and dressers.
The houses include fully equipped kitchens, living rooms and dining areas. Residents are responsible for their own groceries and meal preparation. Amenities include WiFi, cable TV and laundry facilities. House managers live on the premises.

Typically, NuLife accepts men and women who have graduated from primary care at NuLife or another rehab, and who have a minimum of 30 days of sobriety. Potential applicants undergo a comprehensive interview, and must pass a urine drug and alcohol screen. Upon acceptance, new clients undergo an orientation session with the sober living director.

During the first 30 days of their stay, clients must abide by a 10 pm curfew, seven days a week. After that initial period, curfew is midnight seven days a week. After 30 days, clients must attend a minimum of three weekly 12-step meetings, including the house meeting, which has some recovery components.
