Desert Awakenings Sober Living is a structured sober living home that gives those in recovery from alcoholism and substance abuse a supportive place to grow spiritually, one day at a time. In providing a safe home of dignity and integrity for those seeking a new way of life in sobriety, we realize there are no hopeless cases of addictive individuals.

A Sober Home of Integrity

Role modeling recovery and health involves far more than the absence of chemical use and personal problems. It requires more than the ability to speak the lingo of treatment or recovery, more than the appearance of all being well. It asks of those involved with Desert Awakenings a degree of personal honesty and spiritual integrity that rises above the norm.


In working the 12 steps of alcoholics anonymous we understand that a spiritual awakening can and will happen knowing that God is doing for us what we cannot do for ourselves.

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.

Financial viability is maintained through affordable, yet self-supporting, contributions from guests as well as funds secured from individuals and The Supporting Angels program. Reimbursement for housing from insurers or government agencies will not be accepted by Desert Awakenings. We provide sober-housing for $1050 per bed per month +$525 sober living deposit. This fee includes the monthly contribution, utilities, local/long distance phone service, internet Wi-Fi service and satellite TV and some foods.

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.
