Take your life back

Methamphetamine is a highly addictive substance. It often takes the form of white clear chunky crystals resembling ice and is also known as crystal meth. Methamphetamine can be smoked, snorted, or injected. People addicted to methamphetamine take it for its euphoric effect, conveniently ignoring the fact that the drug can wreak havoc on their physical and mental health.

Methamphetamine has a wide array of negative side effects on the brain once ingested that can cause lasting, even irreparable, damage to your mind and body. Some of these effects include:

  • Disruption of neurotransmitters, which can lead to memory loss, sleep problems, hallucinations, and paranoia
  • Damage to the dopamine system’s ability to produce natural pleasure signals, leading to cravings for more methamphetamine
  • Reduction in gray matter volume in the brain’s frontal lobe and hippocampus regions, resulting in cognitive decline and impaired decision-making
  • Increased risk of stroke or heart attack due to constriction of blood vessels
  • Reduced grey matter volume in the amygdala region of the brain is associated with decreased emotional regulation capacity

No two individuals are the same. The physical and mental effects of methamphetamine abuse can vary from one case to another. Several members of our staff have been through recovery programs themselves and are fully aware of the tolls substance abuse can have on the mind and body.

Our ability to shift addicts from treatment programs to our sober living environments has proven to be highly effective in ensuring recovering addicts stay on their path.

Life-Rock’s Mission


Although Life-Rock isn’t a rehab center, we are an essential part of the journey toward recovery and oftentimes the most helpful when residents have a goal of integrating back into society. We are committed to helping people addicted to methamphetamine learn to fight their urges, identify temptations, and neutralize them.

An environment filled with temptations increases the risk of relapse. We have sober homes all over Sonoma County that provide recovering addicts with a safe environment devoid of any temptations. We have built strong addiction recovery communities all over both Sonoma and Napa county that aim to help people grappling with all types of substance addiction rebuild their lives.

Our sober house for women in Petaluma is run by an experienced house manager. They have an amazing ability to empathize with house residents. In fact, all our house manages can empathize because we understand that working to recover from addiction is a choice, and we’re here to encourage you. Our house manager is responsible for enforcing house rules. They regularly conduct surprise drug tests and inspections to ensure house residents comply with house rules.

We are committed to helping house residents make positive changes in their lives. Our house managers help residents find gainful employment so they can become self-reliant. Gainful employment provides structure, meaning, purpose, and stable earnings. All of this helps reduce the risk of relapse.

A lack of purpose and solitude can increase relapse risk. We host community events regularly and conduct recreational and mental activities to help our residents stay physically and mentally active. Get-togethers also give networking opportunities to house residents.
