Why Sober Living in NJ?

Surfside Structured Sober Living in NJ is the only structured sober living specifically for young men ages 18-34 in New Jersey. We believe that one of the major precursors for relapse is boredom and an overall inability to deal with life’s challenges.

Our comprehensive program is designed to expose residents to multiple activities that will help them experience the joys of life again. Each day, the house will participate in a predetermined group activity (activities vary based on the weather).

Some of the regular weekly activities include: Biking, longboarding, surfing, SUP, hiking, fishing and going to the gym, movies, bowling and airsoft. Other activities will occur on a monthly or bi-monthly basis, such as camping, paintball, day-long hikes, climbing and trips to the mountains.

All residents that graduate our 3-6 month program will work through the 12-steps and be fully integrated into the recovery community, learn to budget, grocery shop, cook and leave with a completed resume and job search skills.


Sober Living in NJ gives young men the opportunity to experience the joy of living. All men living in the Surfside Structured Sober Living Residence will have the opportunity to take surf lessons (seasonal), participate in yoga and learn how to cook and budget at no additional cost. During the colder months, our group will continues to participate in multiple activities at our local gym but we also head into the outdoors.

Surfside is the only sober living in NJ that owns our own 11.5 acre piece of land about 30min west of our house. This wooded lot in the pine barrens offers our residents year round camping, a paintball/airsoft field, and the ability to relax in nature.

All activities (once or twice a year there could be an exception) are included in the resident’s program fee.  We have no additional hidden fees. Our home is equipped with state of the art camping equipment, skateboards and electric skateboards, surfboards, bikes, fishing equipment and other accessories needed.  If a resident owns equipment and would prefer to use his own, we encourage them to bring their gear.
