Orange County Recovery Sober Living — The Cottages

4b5db06271b3dc93198599777421e823The Cottages provide safe, clean, structured housing for women in recovery.  Our family-like environment is warm and friendly and guests usually stay between three and six months, or even longer.  There is not a maximum stay at The Cottages. Guests are welcome to stay as long as they need to if they are able to abide by the rules and the structure.  There is, however, a minimum stay of 30 days as a monthly commitment creates a more stable environment.  With only eight women in each home, two per room, there is ample space to start lying the foundation for  new life  changes to take place.  With our loving dogs and each other, the ladies are rarely lonely.  Although there are pets on the premises, unfortunately, outside animals are not accepted.

There is also an in-house meditation meeting Saturday morning at 9 a.m. followed by a house meeting which allows time to talk about house issues and rules.  It is also the time to come together as a group and work as a team to clean for the up coming week.  For those that lack cleaning skills, ample opportunity is provided to learn how to clean3fe82b85171d18d80af101feaad941c8.
