Founder & CEO
Carl Mosen, the original founder of Sober Living by the Sea, brings 30 plus years of experience and success in the field of addiction recovery. Over 30 years ago, Carl founded a halfway house steps from the beach where homeless men could live (for free) during their early stages of sobriety. Soon after, Carl created one of the first, if not the first, residential treatment programs in Newport Beach, CA. Little did Carl know that he was setting the precedent for Newport Beach’s thriving addiction treatment industry that exists today.
Today, thousands of recovered addicts and alcoholics call Newport Beach home because of Carl’s local leadership and involvement in the recovery community! Carl has continued this legacy by offering quality and luxury addiction treatment to men, women and young adults suffering from alcoholism and drug abuse at Hotel California By The Sea.
