Desert Awakenings Sober Living is committed to developing an affordable, sober-living home, promoting personal discipline, a strong work ethic and a spiritual foundation of services and involvement in Alcoholics Anonymous since January 2013. This democratically managed living environment is designed for those who need time in a safe, supportive environment to establish a sober foundation. The spiritual philosophy found in the 12-Steps and Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous will serve as the program's foundation and guiding principles. Desert Awakenings houses 7 to 9 men and serves as a bridge linking men from a residential recovery environment or treatment to the broader recovering community. Through a strong emphasis on service, sponsorship and practicing the principles in all our affairs, Desert Awakenings creates an environment where individuals are committed to developing and practicing the spiritual principles and disciplines so necessary to recovery. This growing experience of "community" is accomplished through full-time/part-time employment or volunteer work, the practice of daily spiritual disciplines and by active involvement in AA's "pockets of enthusiasm" throughout the metropolitan area.
Desert Awakenings Task Force consists of other SOBER-LIVING owners, The Riverside County Sober Living Coalition and selected community leaders, and meets regularly to review the plan and its implementation. Desert Awakenings is fully self-supporting through it own contributions.
