    ConsumerAffairs Unaccredited Brand

    Sober College is a cutting edge addiction treatment center for young adults ages 18-26 in Los Angeles, CA. Our program excels in helping young adults overcome addiction and learn how to live happy, healthy and successful sober lives.

    Specializing in dual diagnosis and co-occurring disorders, Sober College utilizes a comprehensive whole person approach to drug rehabilitation. Focusing on 5 “core competencies” in recovery that include sobriety, clinical therapy, education, life skills and fitness, Sober College maintains a very unique approach to young adult rehab that addresses all of the mental, emotional, physical and social dimensions that are so critical in developing long term recovery for young adults.

    Surrounded by their young adult peer group in one of the most vibrant young adult recovery communities anywhere in the U.S., Sober College includes a state-of-the-art creative arts, film and music department led by Grammy-nominated musician Mikey Martin where clients can write, produce and direct short action films or record their own music in a fully functional professional recording studio with live room, sound isolation booths, and multi-track recording.

    Sober College is designed to help teach young adults how to get sober and transition through the educational process, earning college credits or high school equivalency while in treatment. Our partnership with WSCUC accredited Woodbury University provides Sober College clients the opportunity to earn up to 15 transferable college credits.

    Our experiential therapy program includes equine, trapeze, rock climbing, surfing and yoga therapies designed to teach young adults healthy coping mechanisms and how to manage their emotions in healthy, productive ways.

    While individual results can vary, Sober College's life skills emphasis is designed to teach self-sufficiency and independence and provide our young adults with the toolbox and skills necessary to get sober, and most importantly, stay sober over the long term.

    Sober College encompassed the age group that my daughter would be most comfortable with and they had the academic college aspect. The admissions team was very good and helpful. We had to repeat so we were familiar with the process the second time around and it was really simple. The first time was about educating us. I was impressed with the facilities, aesthetics, and the accommodations they offer. Every time I go back I continue to be more impressed with the improvements they make. All of the staff has been absolutely amazing without fail. Everyone has been super high quality, super caring, investing in the recovery of the kids there. They were knowledgeable, helpful, and really, really wonderful people.

    We thought our daughter was successful the first time but she didn’t stay in long enough. Even though they encouraged us to have her stay longer, we decided to take her and it wasn't the right decision. She begged to go back after she fell off the wagon and this time she finished. She’s in extended care right now, but she’s out on her own and she’s been in that for 18 months. We hope that this will catch, but it's been a long road. It hasn’t been easy always, but it certainly made it easier for us.

    The only thing negative is the way they handled the billing on the medication and that they can just set doctor’s appointments/medication based on their convenience and not on the client’s convenience or expense parameters. They retail the prescription not at the cheapest place, but where they can get some sort of funding difference for them or insurance-wise. I suspect they get a better insurance payout from certain vendors, so we had to do work around with that and it's taken us about 2 years to figure out how to get the medicines and some of the treatments into a more reasonable range. Nevertheless, I have recommended them to several people.

    Sober College response

    I'm glad we have had the opportunity to serve you and your family and that you have had a satisfying experience overall. We appreciate your willingness to give such thoughtful, meaningful feedback. We recognize that dealing with doctors, insurance companies and pharmacies is a challenge and can be taxing financially. I do want to clarify that we do not profit from medications or relationships with vendors. That being said, we do establish good working relationships with some doctors in the area and work primarily with a locally-owned pharmacy that benefits us in the convenience of delivering medications, using other pharmacies only when we are trying to accommodate to find a more affordable solution. We take the challenge to look into ways in which we can improve our system to help your family and the other families we serve get the care needed in the most convenient, affordable way possible.
