Residential and Sober Living in Hollywood, Southern California

Van Ness Recovery House is a 20-bed residential treatment facility that was started in 1973 serving the LGBTQIA+ community.  VNRH was one of the first to welcome persons with HIV and AIDS into residential addiction recovery treatment.  Since then, VNRH has served thousands of individuals struggling with substance related disorders. 

VNRH provides client-centered, trauma-informed, recovery-oriented services, offered by a committed, caring and qualified staff of licensed, certified and registered professionals.

VNRH does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, age, national origin, handicap, sexual orientation or HIV status. Although VNRH largely targets the gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and the transgender community, heterosexual clients are welcome and have proven success in the program.

  • Abstain from drugs and alcohol in a safe and supportive environment.
  • Learn skills for relapse prevention and improved coping.
  • Protect themselves from HIV/STD infection and transmission.
  • Get needed medical treatment and maintain good physical health.
