West Hollywood, CA — TLC Residential (, a nationally recognized provider of transitional sober living home residences throughout the Northern California - San Francisco Bay Area including, San Jose, San Mateo, Concord, Pleasant Hill, Santa Clara, Alameda, and Contra Costa counties, has now joined forces with Sober Nexus, LLC (, based out of Los Angeles, CA, in an endeavor to enhance its national online exposure efforts. As a leading provider of transitional sober living housing services for over two decades, along with its recent Arcuria Certification, TLC aims to enhance its exposure on a national level as the nation continues to see ever-rising statistics within the realms of drug abuse, addiction, alcoholism, dual-diagnosis disorders, etc.

In a press release issued on 10/7/2010, TLC Residential CEO and Certified Chemical Dependency Counselor, Frank Montero states, “When individuals come out of treatment, either inpatient or outpatient, it is imperative that they move into an SLE (sober living environment) for an extended period of time.” The vast majority of licensed treatment professionals and providers agree that a slow, methodical transition back into society by way of sober living housing, will substantially improve the likelihood for attaining a strong foundation in early recovery. In general, the term “early recovery” is often defined as the first six to 12 months in the recovery process.

With its recent Arcuria Certification of all 20 residential sober living locations in the Bay Area, TLC is now utilizing the services of Sober Nexus to provide enhanced national online exposure throughout a variety of Web 2.0 avenues such as organic search, social media, affiliate syndication, etc. The partnership officially launched on 9/9/2010 and will continue to broaden through Sober Nexus’ ever-expanding process of utilizing new web trends and technologies within targeted and demographically geared exposure avenues.

Carl Melek-Shalom, Managing Partner of Sober Nexus stated “We are excited to be working with TLC Clean & Sober Living Homes. Our focus is on affiliating with services & facilities that serve the true core purpose of recovery, and along with their network of 20 locations, being the largest in California, this is a wonderful resource for those completing treatment elsewhere nationwide and seeking to relocate to the San Francisco Bay Area.” He adds, “The targeting components within our national exposure platform will ultimately serve them very well in their endeavors to help change lives.”
