Carla Vista Sober Living knows and understands the importance of education in today’s world in order to be successful. We at Carla Vista give our residents the opportunity to be a full time student while living in our homes, due to the fact that we believe in higher education.
According to Los Angeles Times, students who drop out become five times more likely to use cocaine, three times more likely to use methamphetamines, and twice as likely to use LSD as well as doubling their weekly alcohol consumption. These statistics prove that keeping students in education creates a safer, more successful environment for them.
Carla Vista Sober Living is dedicated to helping keep our youth sober and drug free, and we are offering a scholarship in order to do so. We believe in the importance of education for the future of our world. Carla Vista understands the struggles of paying for a four year college degree and desires to make these costs more manageable.
