Sober Living

Transitional Living at its best


Sober Living Riverside

Riverside Sober Living gives individuals the opportunity to live in a structured and safe environment that promotes sobriety and strengthening the recovery process. When an individual transitions from a treatment center back into their regular lives, he/she is left vulnerable to many of the stressors and triggers that they dealt with before they pursued treatment. Sober living provides a safe haven for these individuals so that their transitions are fully supported and cushioned.

The goal at Riverside Sober Living is to inspire personal growth and change by using education, spiritual development, and work-force training. The environment is carefully monitored and crafted to mimic a realistic, home-like setting. Riverside Sober Living strives to maintain harmony and peace so that guests have the best chance at furthering their recoveries.

Sober Living Inland Empire treatment uses a direct, yet flexible approach to help guests maintain their sobriety. House rules, cleanliness expectations, and curfews are enforced to maintain stability and progress throughout the living environment. The Sober Living Riverside center also utilizes random drug and alcohol screening tests multiple times per week to help keep guests on the right path to their recoveries. Your loved one won’t just learn the basics of rebuilding their lives without substance abuse; they’ll also be able to take advantage of career placement help, life skills training, volunteer programs, and so much more.

Guests that are still in the beginning stages of transitioning from treatment to sober living will have a chance to participate in 12 step support meetings. These meetings are coordinated by staff who are also actively recovering from addictions to drugs and alcohol. The staff at the Sober Living Riverside center are always looking for ways to interest new guests in participating in 12 step support meetings.

The Sober Living Inland Empire also regularly provides fun physical activities for guests to participate in. Guests often spend their time surfing, hiking, fishing, stand-up paddle boarding, mountain biking, and more.

The staff is fully committed to helping guests build new lives, as well as help them reunite with the people they were before their addictions began. A sober living environment is important to any recovering person’s sobriety. Ensure a safer transition into the world for your loved one by choosing sober living.

The Pathway To Recovery

    “In October 2011, I checked into Serenity Lodge, a residential treatment facility in Lake Arrowhead, CA. I stayed there successfully for one year until October 2012, and Mike Lyons was my counselor throughout my stay. I credit Mike for truly saving my life! I was suffering from multiple addictions, which were rooted in severe depression. Mike possesses a unique combination of qualities which helped guide me to a new way of thinking & to a sober life: he is compassionate, fair, bright, non-judgmental, insightful, a great listener, and his many years of sobriety speaks volumes about his successful approach. Because of Mike, I am now 3 1/2 years sober (with zero relapses), I have my 3 children solidly back in my life, and I am blessed with a wonderful new perspective as I look to my future. Thank you Mike, I am eternally grateful to you!!”

    “I awoke on a very dark road at 35 years old and I was deeply lost. I stumbled upon a wonderful piece of hope and it came in the form of a mentor and counsellor by the name of Mike Lyons. Addiction is a touchy subject and Mike made it clear to me that I could change who I was and who I wanted to become. I am forever grateful to him.”

    Nelson C. Pierce (2015)

    “I met Mike Lyons during 2012 and was placed on his case load for approximately 6 months. It was not my first time in a treatment facility and I tend to set the bar high for case managers. Mike greatly exceeded my high expectations. It was an absolute pleasure to work with him. I quickly found that Mike is easy to converse with. He listens and gives feedback in a non-judgmental fashion that puts you at ease. I always felt I could be completely honest with Mike. He is also quite knowledgeable in the field of addiction. Mike used his years of experience as a case manager as well as his personable experience to facilitate stimulating and practical small groups. I feel fortunate to have had the experience of working with Mike and he continues to check up on me periodically. Most of all, he truly cares for all his clients.”

    “In March of 2013 I entered an alcohol treatment program, with the intent of getting my life back on track after a being arrested for a DUI. I entered treatment a broken man with a promising future. The DUI was not my first and I was going to start a Master’s program at well-respected top notch university. Needless to say I had everything to lose. Michael Lyon was my counselor throughout 2014. Mike’s experience proved to be a great asset in my journey towards sobriety and recovery. I could always depend on Mike to lend an ear and offer sound advice. The advice and mentoring that he unselfishly offered, saw me through some of the darkest most depressing days of my life. Mike genuinely cares for his clients. Over the course of six months we communicated daily, his genuine concern for my well-being and recovery was paramount. Although it may sound as if I was his only client, he provided the same level of compassion and care for all his clients and people in the recovery community gravitated towards him in an effort to “have what he has”. Today I still keep in Contact with Mike and ask his advice from time to time.”


    “Mike Lyons is a true life saver. My son and our family were blessed to have had Mike counsel and care for our son, and through his love and dedication, Mike succeeded in bringing our son back to his prior health and happiness, and indeed actually making him healthier and happier than he had ever been before. I will consider myself forever blessed and fortunate because of Mike’s caring and expert care. Mike does a lot more than help rehabilitate lives, he makes living truly enjoyable and meaningful. Our son has been doing very well, and our entire family today is happy and healthy, because of Mike. Mike has been God’s gift to us. We are so glad that we selected Mike from the start, to help our son and our family heal and succeed.”

    “I’ve been in numerous rehabs and have had many case managers, but I can honestly say that Mike Lyons was the most engaging case manager I’ve ever had. He showed sincere interest in my thoughts and direction in the program. He’s kept me working on my sobriety for longer than any other program I have been to. I can believe he will be a definite positive asset to anyone he pulls under his wing. Generally he’s an all around good guy.”
