Founded in Hemet, California in 2012 by Sharon Jackson, Rosebud House provides safe and highly structured sober living for women. Rosebud House also accommodates pregnant women and those with infants or small children, on a case-by-case basis. Rosebud House and Divine Intervention Recovery for Women, a residential treatment facility, operate under The Rose of Sharon7 network, of which Jackson is the founder and CEO. At Rosebud House, the mission is to help women learn how to live happy and healthy lives without the use of chemical substances.
Accommodations and Amenities
The spacious ranch-style house includes three large bedrooms. While the house has a ten-bed capacity, Jackson usually keeps the numbers between seven and eight clients, which also includes the children. This is done to promote a nurturing family-style atmosphere. The house includes a spacious backyard, with a secure play area for the children.
Accommodations vary, but inside the house, there is one master bedroom, which has two bunk beds. The other rooms are single or double-occupancy, and all are comfortably furnished. Children, depending on their age, receive appropriate beds. The rooms also include dressers, closets, and lamps.
Clients are responsible for their own groceries, and meals are prepared in a fully equipped kitchen. Amenities include cable TV, a landline phone, flat screen TVs, Wi-Fi, laundry facilities and cleaning supplies. A house manager lives on the premises, and oversees all operations. Smoking is permitted outside, in the backyard only.
Rules and Regulations
Rosebud House prefers that clients have undergone primary care at residential treatment facility, with a minimum of 45 days of sobriety. Weekly requirements include performing household chores, being at the house meeting, and attending a minimum of three 12-step meetings. Clients can attend other recovery support meetings, including Celebrate Recovery.
The women must be up by 8 am, and out of the house by 10 am, searching for work, pursuing their education, attending outpatient treatment, participating in community service or going to 12-step meetings. At Rosebud House, women are encouraged to pursue their education, with the idea that going back to school will prepare them for a more beneficial career, that will provide personal fulfillment.
At Rosebud House, random drug and alcohol testing is conducted. Relapsed residents are evicted immediately to ensure the safety of the entire household, but staff makes sure that clients have a safe place to land. On Fridays, clients participate in Double Scrub, a comprehensive housecleaning event.
Other services include goal planning and recovery coaching. Clients who have issues with Child Protective Services also receive support and guidance. Many clients attend the MOMS perinatal program, at the Riverside County Department of Mental Health. The program is a six-month Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) that includes group and individual therapy.
Rosebud House is a member of the Sober Living Network, Riverside County Sober Living Coalition, which demands high standards from members.
Rosebud House is a labor of love on the part of Jackson, whose whole life is committed to recovery.

This is a highly affordable and safe home for women who really are looking for a second chance, and want to stay clean and sober.
