Here’s the thing about recovery: you can see through the bullsh*t. The staff at Oro House Recovery really care. Even when I was at a point in my life when I didn’t care about myself, I had a support system of people behind me who really wanted me to succeed. Thank you Oro House!

I am an alumni of Alo, four years ago I regained my life in ways and never thought possible. I know many people that have gone through numerous inpatient treatment centers, and each of them will attest to the fact that Alo is hands down the best in the country. I honestly, from the bottom of my heart owe them my life, and teaching me how to love my myself, which is the root cause of addiction.

Oro House is a one of a kind treatment center. The one-on-one attention & care received at Alo is unlike anywhere else. The staff deeply cares about the clients and meets clients exactly where they are at. Besides the incredible accommodations, Alo is a place clients feel safe and comfortable in an otherwise somewhat uncomfortable journey of getting sober. I can not recommend this treatment center enough.

Alo is outstanding when it comes to drug and mental health treatment. If I wouldn’t have gone back there for a second time I wouldn’t be where I am at today. The staff is all exceptionally caring and friendly, always willing to reach a hand out and help you if you are willing to ask. I highly recommend giving this place a try if you are stuck in a dark place. I have never been done wrong by Alo and I have not had that experience with other places I have went. I thank this place for everything they did, I still try to stop by and say hello. Love this place

Oro House is unlike any other recovery center – most significantly, it is NOT a business, nor is it run like one! Alo saved my life and I will forever be grateful for what turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life.

Oro House is a great treatment environment and transitional living situation. Living at Oro House, I am learning to live a healthy, fun, and sober lifestyle. At Oro House, I can grow and develop as a person and in my sobriety. The staff is very friendly and supportive, and made me feel welcome since the day I arrived.

Oro House helped me become a contributing member of society, and made me appreciate life in ways I never had before. The owners have a very gentle approach and a kind attitude. Oro House is not just a sober living, it is my home.

In looking for the best place with and for our daughter, we wanted a residence that was serious in its approach by insisting on a zero tolerance approach, while at the same time combining a compassionate and welcoming atmosphere with all the right support. Oro House, through the personal and caring involvement of its owners, proved to be exactly the right combination of both.

It was a great environment to be in in my early sobriety. The staff really helped integrate me into a productive and happy lifestyle. I would recommend this to a friend. Excellent location, top-notch service. It's just one of those places that isn't age-specific, and has something for everyone, in terms of location and activities offered. And everyone who works there is super caring, and love what they do! Other than that, the house is REALLY nice, very well furnished, very comfortable. Gives you that ‘home' kind of feeling. The house is full of love! Even though I'm an alumni, I still frequently visit and keep in contact with the people who I made connections with during my stay.

I have been involved with Oro House in a number and capacities, and most importantly, I trust them. They walk the talk. They care about their clients, they create a safe home with structure, fun, caring and very capable staff. They are not punitive, but they have rules and boundaries that promote long-term recovery. They go above and beyond to be of service to their clients, and are real people you can relate to. I've worked with many people and places in the Southern California recovery community, and I wouldn't send a person seeking treatment anywhere else but Oro House.

At first, I was hesitant to move into a sober living. However, I quickly felt comfortable and at ease living at Oro House. The staff and current clients made me feel like I was part of a family, rather than just a resident living in the house. I saw how active and full of life everyone was, which provided me with a great incentive to stay sober. I kept prolonging my stay at Oro House, and lived at the house a total of nine months! Every month got better and better; and I got stronger and stronger. I built a great network of sober friends and had a tremendous amount of help transitioning back out into the world on my own. It truly is a really special place; and I am so blessed to have found it.

Oro House is a great place. Clean house. Beautiful beach. Great staff. The guys really helped me out, and got me motivated to go to meetings. That's what makes this home really special — the staff. The place is very family oriented. Everyone looks out for each other. This is a very strong motivation to stay sober.

My daughter has been at Oro House for the last few months. She has found it to be a very caring and healing community. As a parent, I have found Oro House to be very professionally run, by people who really care and who are very aware of, and responsive to, the needs of their clients and their families.

If you are reading this testimonial, know that I feel a profound compassion for you. Being the mother of an addict, I know what it feels like to have your heart broken and feel pain you never knew existed. Our daughter went to a highly acclaimed, world renowned rehabilitation center out of state. We were quickly educated on all of the different scenarios that can and or will happen when your ‚loved one' leaves the structure of rehab. The single most important thing is their transition into ‚real world' as a sober person. After trying several sober living environments for our daughter ‚ all of which failed ‚ we found Oro House.It is hard to put into words the emotions and the intense joy we have experienced with Oro House over the past five months. Evan and Jared are doing it right.We felt that if our daughter had the chance to become healthy ‚ mind, body & soul ‚she could make a decision of what kind of life she wanted for herself. The close working relationships Oro House Recovery Centers has with the professional community in and around Malibu have been instrumental in helping her navigate her way into a healthy, happy, sober lifestyle. Evan and Jared understand that in order to embrace a sober lifestyle, you need to be balanced in mind, body & soul. They beautifully orchestrate this thru the use of SOBER FUN, healthy eating, therapy, meetings and being involved on a daily basis with each of the residents.Evan and Jared, and all staff members, lead by example. They truly care and invest the time to get to know all of the residents. The most remarkable thing about Oro House, and the thing that raises it to a level of its own, is the sense of family felt by ALL.I can honestly say that our family has grown and Oro House will always be a part of us.

We have been down a long road, finally settling in with Oro House. Before, my son was just a number. It was very stressful and frustrating to keep track of my son and be assured of his well being. The minute I started communicating with Oro House, I was amazed. They seem to care about my son as much as I do. Whether through texts, phone or email, I receive immediate response to my questions. All of my concerns are taken care of, as Oro House mentors my son Orong.The most amazing thing about Oro House is that staff immediately got to know my son on a personal level, and created a plan for him at the house to encourage him and give him something to live for ‚ in his case, allowing him to create things at the house where his interests and talents are, giving him a reason to wake up in the morning, allowing him to help others using his talents, working on positive progression during his healing process.Because Oro House is a small facility, everyone interacts as a family. Bonds have been created that will last a lifetime for my son. And finally, I need to mention that that the actual facility is unbelievably beautiful ‚Äî clean inside, well manicured lawns overlooking the ocean! Anyone would be lucky to live there.Thank you so much for appearing in our lives. Oro House is the reason that I can now sleep at night, knowing my son is a part of your family, under your care.

From the first time I contacted Oro House, I felt supported and cared for. Evan, co-owner, and the Intake Director, guided me through the process on how to get to treatment from the other side of the country. Even over the phone, they were warm and kind and I knew I was making the right decision.The properties are gorgeous. The groups are fabulous. The therapists and staff truly care about you and your well-being. I was at their sober living house for approximately 3 months and the experience challenged me and helped me to see things about myself that have been essential in my recovery. After attending Oro House, I have the most sober time since 2009 when I first attempted sobriety. After being a chronic relapser for 5 years, I finally feel like I have a strong footing in my recovery.From equine therapy, to spending time with the animals at Big Heart Ranch, outings to the Self-Realization Temple with resident meditation and spirituality guide — Jaymee, hiking trips, sharing amazing meals together…I remembered that a sober life can truly be fun and rewarding. And that the relationships I build in recovery are the most authentic and rewarding relationships I will ever have.As an only child who never had much family, I can say that Oro House is family. These people are amazing and truly care about YOU. You are not just a number or dollar signs. The sense of community is absolutely amazing and I will always hold my experience at Oro House and the people I met there dear to my heart.Best decision I ever made. Hands down.

In working with the addiction population over the last four years, I have seen a lot of treatment environments. Oro House stands out amongst the rest because it offers non-judgemental acceptance, communication, and community. This creates a safe environment for clients to integrate back into the world with confidence and support. Furthermore, the owners play a major role in the successful operation of the program. They take clients on many real life adventures, from hiking in the Santa Monica Mountains to experiencing Cirque Du Soleil for the first time‚ Oro House is a great choice for anyone serious about transforming their life.

As a therapist working with clients in recovery, I've been able to rely on the professional and caring support Oro House sober living consistently offers my clients and their families. Management and staff genuinely care, which is evident by their commitment to making sure all clients have the structure, accountability and support needed to maintain sobriety, with the understanding of the importance in having fun and becoming part of the community. Oro House has continued to work closely with me when it comes to treatment plans and case management, which has been a necessary factor in achieving long term success. I would recommend Oro House sober living to anyone looking to launch themselves into a solid new way of life.

My stay at Oro House was life-changing. The staff and fellow clients had created a strong family-like bond, which they instantly welcomed me into. The dedication of the staff helped me to form an enthusiastic and motivated view of not only my recovery, but also my life. If I ever needed advice or direction, they were there. The foundation created in treatment was solidified by the positive environment and acceptance I encountered during my stay at Oro House by the Sea. I am truly grateful for that experience.

When I came to Oro House, I was a broken soul. It seemed like everywhere I went I was shortly rejected and misunderstood. I remember the first night I met Jared and Evan. As soon as I walked onto the Oro House property, I felt a sense of safety and serenity as they showed me around their beautiful house. Every day at Oro House was a spiritual awakening like I've never had at any other time of my life. In my humble opinion, the spiritual journey that you will find yourself walking every day wile at Oro House is going to be one that will change your life completely for the better. I now wake up every day happy and sober. My relationship with my family is completely healed and stronger than it has ever been and my life is so big. I love Oro House and I give them my highest recommendations to anyone.

Oro House will always be my home away from home. The meals and food are amazing. We were fed very well! We got to experience our daily lives with a full support system in place, and a very positive vibe that makes you want to succeed in sobriety. The house is fun and active, and has a strong sense of community. I particularly enjoyed hiking and paddle boarding. Being right on the beach, there were always plenty of beach days. Once a week, we held male/female groups to check in. The morning meditation reading was a great way to jump start the day! We loved to do everything together. From going as a group to meetings, going to dinner as a family, we were always having fun!!!Evan and Jared are amazing men, who are there for anybody, at any time of the day or night. they are great influences, and a joy to be around. I can't speak highly enough of my time at Oro House!

We feel so lucky that our daughter found Oro House. Learning about addiction and what it takes to get sober is one thing. Discovering how to practice sobriety, no matter what, in the real world out there, is another – and this is where Oro House does such an impressive job. Our sense is that Oro House provides a healthy, loving family situation, full of compassion and without judgement. From the moment our daughter came to Oro House, we felt sure she was in a safe space to continue her recovery — and we have only become more and more certain of that, the more we learn. Evan and Jared clearly take each person from exactly where they are, and create an individualized path — an environment with just enough support and just enough challenge — so that each member gets what they need to make the transition to a clean and sober life. We, as parents, feel tremendously comforted by the sense of well-being and serious progress we feel from our daughter.

Oro House is five star all the way! The beautiful environment, the staff, and activities are simply a few of the items giving this home such a quality experience.

Oro House is more than a business, it is a family. The staff approaches the challenges of clients in transition professionally and knowledgeably, and with compassion and real solutions‚ At Oro House, they not only talk the talk, they lead by example, demonstrating how a sober life can be rewarding and fun. They create a supportive atmosphere for the clients to succeed and to help the families as well. I highly recommend Oro House without reservation.

Dear Evan and Jared, this is just a note to let you both know that I am doing very well. My time at Oro House was very special. You and your staff are such loving, caring people. I felt at home and a part of the family, immediately. My three months at Oro House have given me such a good foundation going forward in my sobriety. Words cannot express my gratitude and how blessed I feel to have found Oro House. Thank you again. Love to you all.

I have incredibly fond memories of Oro House. I arrived a slightly depressed, very miserable and incredibly guilty about what I have put my family through. Fast forward a few weeks, and I am not depressed ,I am looking forward to the future with some confidence and feeling better than I have in years. I embraced the program for the first time ever, and accept my lot in life. It is what it is, and I now have choices. I feel that the staff and owners all lead by example, and for me, that was so much more powerful than what I have experienced in rehab, which I always wanted to do my way. Perhaps I was just ready to change. I often thought I could have just rented a house and done it myself, but then I remembered, I have tried that so many times, unsuccessfully. I needed whatever it is Oro House provided, and that something is really special ‚ I miss my room which was a real haven for me.

The chemical dependency field, whether sober living or residential treatment, is filled with so many recovery choices. Many offer luxury living — all the bells and whistles imaginable. With all these choices, what is vital and important can get lost. Oro House is the diamond in the rough. Its owners, Evan and Jared, have a vision, and not just one, they have a unique individualized vision for each person that walks through their doors. Their approach encompasses seeing the whole person and their potential. With this vision, they create a recovery community that loves each individual back to health and happiness. They know what is important, and when you meet them, you remember also.

All treatment centers are not created equal. All I know this from the painful experiences of my daughter. I am so grateful for Oro House. My daughter describes it as a peaceful home with an extended family who will cry with her when she hurts and celebrate with her when she succeeds. It's not just a business to these folks; the owners and staff are personally committed to each individual's recovery. We are blessed to be part of this home where Rachel has the structure, compassion and emotional support she needs as she builds a wonderful new life as a sober young woman.
