At Arcuria we only do a few things and we do them really well:
Arcuria is a non-member organization that provides independent, 3rd party, Certification of Sober Living Homes in the State of California. "Certification refers to the confirmation of certain characteristics of an object, person, or organization. This confirmation is often, but not always, provided by some form of external review, education, or assessment." In the case of Arcuria, we certify that minimum standards are met within the home including structure, management, staff (if any), and clean and sober policy. Every home within an organization must be visited and approved for certification. This prevents an owner of several Sober Living Homes from showing the best one and allowing others to be unacceptable. Each home is given a Certificate with a date of expiration and the number of beds approved in that home.
We have experience running Sober Living homes, and working actively with those in recovery as well as professionals in the field. Our primary concern is the person in recovery and the policy of "do no harm." Safety, respect and dignity of the resident is paramount.
There are other organizations in the state of California that provide approval for Sober Living Homes through registration or membership. Requirements vary. Arcuria is committed to having the most stringent requirements to help people find safe and supportive quality sober living, regardless of their budget.
