The Ohio House is a safe and structured environment for people seeking recovery from drugs and alcohol.

Our purpose is to provide our residents with the tools needed to achieve long term sobriety. We believe that every person that walks through our door is a member of our family. We are passionate about recovery and guide each resident through their emotional, physical and spiritual development.

Some ideas grow organically through circumstance and fate. At least that’s how The Ohio House was created. Brandon Stump came to California in 2008 looking for a fresh start after being treated in more than five rehabs and sober livings in his home state of Ohio.


At all of The Ohio House properties, we provide structure to our residents. The structure is designed and programed to enhance the the resident’s physical, mental and spiritual growth. The structure of The Ohio House is built on three foundational principles.


1. Routine

The Ohio House believes that a solid routine ensures a grounded foundation for our residents. We expect all of our residents to adhere to a strict set of daily activities.


2. Recovery

Each resident can and will follow some simple rules. Each residence is assigned a House Manager to ensure a safe and structured environment for the recovering. Rules are in place as a vessel to a sober lifestyle.

  • Complete daily chores
  • Adhere to nightly curfew
  • Employment, school or outpatient therapy
  • Alcohol and drug testing twice weekly
  • Attend all house meetings
  • Active in a twelve step program
  • No violence or aggressive behavior


We provide each resident the opportunity to be held accountable on a daily basis. House rules help the individual become reliable, responsible, honest and self supporting. The Ohio House offers additional assistance to our residence so that the path they walk can be beneficial mentally, physically and monetarily.

I wanted to tell you how truly grateful I am for the opportunities you have given me. From a bed and place to stay when I had absolutely nothing, nowhere to go, and no one wanting anything to do with me to trusting me with the responsibility of one of your houses. I was walking up to the front door of the house the other day, dropped to my knees and cried. I am so happy to be alive and sober today! I believe that had you not taken me in when you did I definitely wouldn’t  be sober and probably dead. I love you guys and The Ohio House! – Darren

The Ohio House saved my life. It was the only place that I knew to call when I needed help. I’ve built some of the greatest relationships with people at the Ohio House that I know will be lifelong friends. As a staff member, I have never been so grateful and proud to work for such a great place, and with some of the greatest people. This is by far the best program around. I would highly recommend the Ohio House to anyone looking for a solid, safe, and fun sober living environment. I love what you guys are doing. – Lou

I moved into the Ohio house in September of 2015. I was completely down and out and had exhausted all of my resources. The Ohio house provided me a safe and healthy place to put my life back together one day at a time. Words can not describe how caring and supportive the Ohio house staff has been towards me and my personal recovery. The brotherhood coupled with the individual treatment I received at the Ohio house truly pushed and motivated me to change my life around. I am forever grateful for what the Ohio house has done for me, my family, and my recovery. They showed me the way to a better life. – Nick
