So Cal Recovery Sober LivingThe Basics

Southern California Recovery Centers Sober Living is a transitional housing facility associated with the treatment center by the same name in Laguna Beach of Southern California. Opened in 2006 by Morgan Richardson and Daniel Duclos, this treatment center caters exclusively to men as they focus on recovery in a quiet and supportive environment.

Accommodation and Amenities

The SCRC sober living house is a stunning, multi-level home that can accommodate up to 11 clients at a time. There are five bedrooms in the facility, most sleep two per room and one master bedroom that sleeps four. The bedrooms are furnished with double beds and individual dressers. There are shared bathrooms on the first and second floors, and the master bedroom has a private bathroom, complete with marble counter tops, a large steam shower and sunken tub.

There are two living rooms that offer large flat screen TVs, fireplaces and comfortable couches. There is high speed DSL throughout the house, a pool table and state of the art kitchen with stainless steel appliances. A shared patio in the back has an outside dining table and BBQ so the clients can relax and cook. 

Rules and Regulations

SCRC follows the 12-step model and requires all clients attend at least five outside AA or NA meetings per week. By providing a regular schedule of structured events, activities and meetings, clients develop healthy routines. There is no required time commitment to the sober living program, though many opt to stay for as long as a year.

A typical day at SCRC sober house begins at 6:30 am, starting with an off-site 12-Step meeting. After heading back to the facility for breakfast, clients participate in a group reflection meeting where they can work steps or connect with house staff. This may be a time where clients meet with a counselor if needed, which the staff is happy to facilitate. The facility also offers transportation to appointments, meetings, work and school, if needed.

The afternoon is reserved for fitness or a wellness lecture, followed by a group meeting or AA workbook study. Chores lead into free time followed by dinner at the house. As the evening approaches, a final outside meeting occurs, followed by relaxing until lights out. 

While the weekend is a little looser as far as a schedule goes, SCRC does require that clients attend meetings and check in with house staff. Education and monitoring are integrated into the treatment at the facility. This includes a focus on relapse prevention and guest speakers who come into the house. 

The house managers are available on site 24 hours a day. Additionally, the support staff at SCRC is comprised of addiction counselors, physicians, psychiatrists, peer counselors and nutritionists.


Fitness is a large part of the recovery process at SCRC, so daily trips to the local gym and occasional private training sessions are provided. The house itself is very close to Laguna Beach and clients are welcome to make visits during their downtime.

The weekends are filled with fun sober activities such as paddle boarding, beach outings and get-togethers at the house. SCRC shows the clients that life can still be fun and fulfilling while sober. SCRC also has a weekly family program every Saturday that offers therapy and education to client’s family members.
