Pura Vida Communities is a Sober Living facility located in St. Pete Beach, FL. Our goal is to provide a safe, secure, stable, and supportive environment for recovering addicts and alcoholics at all levels of recovery. Our residential rules and guidelines provide a necessary sense of structure and community, along with a flexible amount of personal freedom.
What is “Pura Vida”? Pura Vida literally means "pure life". Costa Ricans use the phrase to express a philosophy of strong community, perseverance, resilience in overcoming difficulties with good spirits, enjoying life slowly, and celebrating good fortune of magnitudes small and large alike.
What is Sober Living? Sober living helps individuals in recovery maintain a clean, healthy, and sober existence by establishing a living environment that supports sobriety and recovery. When living in a sober environment, recovering addicts are surrounded by others who share a common experience and who all support one another in their recovery.
Pura Vida Communities utilizes a two phase model of sober living. Phase I- Residents are generally in the early stages of recovery and come to PVC from a residential treatment facility and require a fair amount of rules and guidelines to maintain their sober lifestyle. Phase II- This stage is designed for residents who have more clean time but still want to reside in a community that supports recovery and a drug free lifestyle. Residents enjoy more independence and freedom while continuing their recovery in a safe environment.
We offer furnished one bedroom and efficiency units just steps from the Gulf of Mexico. There is also a community pool on site for everyone’s peaceful enjoyment. The sunsets are free but you must provide your own flip-flops and fishing pole. Public transportation, library, shopping, and NA/AA meetings are all within walking distance.
