Chateau Recovery L.A. Opens Hayes House: A New Sober Living Home in Los Angeles

Hayes House is a co-ed home with five bedrooms and four bathrooms, and comes in at just over 3,200 square feet of living space.

Keeping Your Recovery in Check for the Holidays

Keeping Your Recovery in Check for the Holidays

Maintaining our sobriety on a daily basis is difficult enough for us when we’re new in recovery, but how can we maintain our sobriety through holiday celebrations and situations that just might trigger relapse? Holidays are already a period of emotional highs and lows for us. We may feel the extremes of loneliness, anxiety, happiness and sadness. We may not yet be reconciled with our loved ones, or we may be newly reconciled with tensions still high. We may even be returning to a family of people who are suffering from addictions of their own—people who do not yet understand…

Is AA/NA the Only Fellowship I Need to Attend?

Coming into recovery, we put our whole effort into our 12-step program. We finished treatment, did 90 meetings in 90 days, got a sponsor, worked the steps, and sponsored others. Our recovery was guaranteed, right? You can't go wrong if you work the whole program! Or so we thought.... The reality is that, while getting clean/sober and working the steps did some amazing things for our lives, we still had other "outside" issues that we needed to work on. These were issues that weren't necessarily addressed within the AA/NA fellowship. Rather, they were issues that perhaps needed a little more…

Is Life Better Without Alcohol or Drugs?

Is Life Better Without Alcohol or Drugs?

Let's face it, one of the major fears you had when you first came into recovery is that you'd never again have fun like you had when you were drinking or using. Alcohol or drugs were not only what you used to overcome the feelings you had, it was also the social lubricant you used to enjoy yourself when you were celebrating. Could it possibly be that life could be just as fun, or even more fun without the mind-altering substances? Would life ever even be worth it without the drugs or alcohol? As it turns out, we had no…
