FamilyLight sm now recommends against referring to or enrolling in any Aspen or CRC Health school or program due to what the closing of New Leaf of North Carolina says about the value system of that company. For detail, see Tom's blog for May 2010. Following text has not been updated in accordance with this.
This program is one that FamilyLight sm intends to review online. We are waiting for the program to return the questionnaire we have developed so we can be most thorough. We might provide an abbreviated review prior to that. Guest reviews are invited.

Sober Living By The Sea is owned and operated by CRC Health Group.
FamilyLight sm has had excellent experience with Sober Living By The Sea, but it needs to be for the right client. Before referring or seeking admission, make sure you understand the level of care offered in each program. Except for Sunrise Ranch, Sober Living By The Sea's residents live in close proximity to other residents of a swinging town. There are both advantages and disadvantages and disadvantages to that fact. You need to understand that well before referring / admitted.
While you wait for us to present a more complete review, please look around this website. Look at our Guidelines -- a fairly comprehensive statement of what we believe quality is all about. If you come to a search and planning process with limited experience, this is an opportunity for you to find some principles to measure schools and programs against.
Keep coming back to see the updates. Look at "What's New" (Announcements). In spring of 2009 we expect to have returns from schools, programs, and related organizations published, giving deeper insight into these than has ever been available on the web before.
Feedback is invited. We will publish any feedback in good taste. Email FamilyLightResponse@yahoo.com
Disclaimer: No program review, no matter how positive, is a blanket endorsement. No criticism is a blanket condemnation. When we express our level of confidence in a school or program, that is our subjective opinion with which others might reasonably disagree. When we assert something as fact, we have done our best to be accurate, but we cannot guarantee that all of our information is accurate and up to date. When we address compliance with our guidelines, you need to remember that these are only OUR guidelines -- not guidelines from an official source. We have also set the bar very high, and do not expect any school or program to be in total compliance. It is not appropriate to draw a conclusion of impropriety (or even failure to live up to conventional wisdom) from our lack of confidence in a school or program or from less than perfect conformity to our guidelines. Some will say we expect too much. Readers are responsible for verifying accuracy of information supplied here prior to acting upon it. We are not responsible for inaccuracies.
