Highly structured sober living

A safe and professional environment to move forward with recovery.

Thrive in our supportive community

Advanced Recovery Institute (ARI) is a highly structured sober living center located in Encino, CA. We provide a safe and professional environment in which clients can thrive and move forward with their recovery. At ARI, we have created a community where our residents help and support each other.

Our philosophy of recovery is based on “connection” rather than “control” in order to achieve closeness and unity. Kindness and respect are the foundation and culture of our sober living. Our team members are affiliates of the active recovery community and come with several years of experience. They hold various certifications and degrees from psychology to wellness and health.





Our program

Working in the field of addiction recovery for more than 20 years has taught us the best evidence-based approach to each individual struggling with addiction. We do not believe in the one-size-fits-all approach recognizing that every A client is an individual with his/her own story and needs. The program is designed to fine-tune such expectations by providing a diverse variety of support groups conducted by licensed therapists and professional counselors.

Our approach to recovery is a holistic path. We believe recovery affects individuals mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Recovery is a commitment to personal growth accepting responsibility for one’s actions. We have had many clients who were not addicts but still struggled with life’s challenges. The program at ARI is designed to explore and discover the underlying factors that prevent the affected individuals from having productive and fulfilling lives.

We provide a balanced structure that supports long-term sobriety

“I checked myself into Advanced Recovery Institute in Encino after having used for more than 13 years. This place has saved my life in more ways than I can count. The staff’s investment in my recovery is unparalleled. The facility and program are custom tailored to help those in need no matter what your background may be. I had never been in any treatment center before and am glad I chose Advanced Recovery Institute. I’m grateful beyond words for their service in treating my addiction.”


“My name is Mike, my stay at Advanced Recovery Institute began after an incredibly traumatizing events in my life made it difficult for me to function at a normal level without experiencing flashbacks. To start, the facility is as beautiful as advertised in terms of the look and feel of the main house. Its expansive and accommodations and amenities are exactly as described by the owners and staff.”

-Mike S.

“I found the bit of sanity I had left after this last rough run, a little peace of mind, hope and the desire to finally love myself at Advanced Recovery Institute. The combination of love, respect, understanding of the disease and the addicts mind along with proper detox meds and a safe comfortable environment allows the addict to be vulnerable and finally begin the healing process.”


“This place is amazing to regain balance in your life! I had the most amazing therapist here. The food is unbeatable! The group sessions and private counseling were both very helpful.”


“Advanced Recovery Institute saved my life! And it wasn’t the beautiful house, pool, or even all that amazing food. It was the people who brought me back to life… Sima: She’s truly special and her ability to lead, manage, AND unquestionably motivate, encourage, care at the same time is something I watched with awe every single day.”


“Advanced Recovery Institute in Encino is a major reason why I’m clean today. I went in barely hanging on and left with a new outcome towards life. Afsaneh and Sima had the utmost patience with me, despite not being the easiest client to deal with. Between always wanting to leave and complaining about this and that, Advanced Recovery Institute never gave up on me.”
