Continuing Care at New Found Life
Recovery is a process, which is why we view treatment as a continuum of care that involves medically-supervised detox coordination, residential treatment and continuing care. We know that the longer a person can engage in treatment, the stronger chance they have of maintaining lasting sobriety.
New Found Life’s Continuing Care Program was established to equip alumni who have completed residential treatment with ongoing support, guidance and community.

Footsteps Transitional Living: Sober Living in Long Beach, CA
The transition out of an environment as structured and intensive as residential treatment into “the real world” is a major change. Residents may not feel comfortable immediately going back home, or they may not have safe, supportive sober living arrangements to return to after treatment.
Footsteps, our residential transitional living program, is an ideal solution for New Found Life alumni who are ready to transition out of the residential setting but want to continue building upon the progress they’ve made in a structured, supportive environment. Residents must participate in our Outpatient Program to be able to live in our Footsteps residences.
Our gender-specific apartments are located near our treatment center and are owned and operated by New Found Life. Footsteps residents can return to work or school while they continue to build on the tools and skills they acquired in residential treatment, and are encouraged to participate in New Found Life programming, such as group therapy, excursions or meals.
Features of our Footsteps Transitional Living Program include:
- A clean, safe and sober residence.
- Home-like environment that provides a built-in recovery network.
- Access to New Found Life Outpatient Program services, including individual and group therapy, family therapy and support, and education and life skills training.
- High levels of supervision and structure.
- Privileges earned through action.
- Weekly house meetings.
- 12-step participation.
- Random drug testing.
In recovery, accountability is everything. The sense of freedom our transitional living residences offer demands high levels of responsibility and accountability. As such, residents must comply with a set of house rules, which include:
- Abstaining from drug and alcohol use.
- Attending weekly house meetings and group activities.
- Completing chores.
- Abiding by a curfew.
