Sponsors Corner provides a safe community-based environment where our clients can safely re-enter society by taking time after rehabilitation to address issues caused during their addiction. 

Recovery takes place in an empathetic atmosphere of fellowship, love and advocacy. We believe in holistic treatment of the individual focusing on Mind, Body and Spirit in a relaxed but contemporary setting. The average length of stay is 90 days but can range between 30 and 180 days.

Studies have shown that relapse rates following a 30-day stay in
a rehabilitation facility can be higher than 60%; conversely that
study also showed that following a 90-day stay in transitional
living, 70% of those people remained sober for two years.

Who we are

Sponsors Corner was incorporated as a nonprofit spiritual recovery house in 2011. The current management team has been part of Sponsors Corner since 1985, when it was the Riverside rehabilitation facility. There is a deep tradition, knowledge and respect for the 12 steps, the importance of spiritual growth, and peer accountability that still permeates the culture.

At the epicenter of Sponsor’s Corner recovery culture is Bob Sullivan. Bob retired from the NYPD in 1983 and has focused ever since on selflessly carrying the message of recovery and freeing people from the crippling bondage of addiction. Bob has over 35 years of sobriety and is well known and respected throughout the state and especially in the Orange County recovery community, where Bob’s “no person left behind” motto is heard daily.

Transitional living represents both a critical path forward for individuals and families trying to rejoin the stream of life. This is a living legacy for Bob as he leads Sponsors Corner into an evolving life changing area of recovery.

We are committed to providing an affordable level of care; our monthly costs of approximately $2,500.00 are 60%-70% below the industry averages.  In addition, because we believe that everyone deserves a chance at recovery, Sponsors Corner is committed to a minimum scholarship rate of 20%.

Capital Campaign

After 35 years of putting people first and providing 3,000 clients with a spiritual path to recovery our physical plant is in jeopardy of failing and we need urgent renovations to ensure our survival and to and fulfill our mission as a premier provider of transitional services. Along with a group of dedicated alumni and Friends of Sponsors Corner, we have implemented a plan that will ensure we can thrive. We ask your support in helping us reach our goal of $500k.


Phase one renovations: Main house, gym, roof, community pavilion

Sponsors Corner sits on fifteen acres of beautiful river and beach front property. The current footprint includes a main house with 17 beds, dining room, game room, and admissions office.

There are also four cottages that house an additional 18 clients and staff. Phase one will focus on renovations to the main house and will serve as the foundation of Sponsors Corner going forward.
