Outcomes Study 2020

Take a look at our 2020 outcomes study which shows how The Last House makes an impact on our clients lives.


Men arrive at The Last House with histories of addictive behavior and problematic functioning in relationships, behavior, and mental health.

The Last House residents are supported by peers, staff, and alumni to work on themselves, build lasting relationships, and discover a meaningful, purposeful life founded on integrity, accountability, and sobriety. Members live in one of two houses and attend outpatient therapy founded on evidence-based clinical approaches such as DBT, CBT, trauma-focused, and mindfulness.

These men find new ways to manage addictions and improve mental, social, and relationship health.

As one of the longest running sober livings in the Los Angeles area, The Last House wants to ensure each and every resident that we are always improving and doing our best to help them succeed in long-term recovery. Our outcomes study was put together in order to effectively measure how our program is helping our residents and where we can improve our program to help even more people in finding sobriety.

This document reports the treatment outcomes for The Last House. It may serve as a tool for quality improvement and to celebrate successes. This work was completed by an external analyst.

Members were asked to complete a survey at admission, at departure, and one week to three months after departure. This survey is called the Outcome Questionnaire (OQ), which measures mental, behavioral, and social health.

Not all clients complete all surveys, but we have data from 113 men who were at The Last House between November 2017 & Dec 2019.

What We Learned

The results of this evaluation indicate that outcomes are trending in the right direction for The Last House. The findings should provide an opportunity to understand treatment impact, celebrate areas of success, and review areas where improvement is needed.

For example, engagement with Thrive & The Last House should be considered the plan for optimal outcomes. Further, the treatment duration was found to be relevant; there appears to be an optimal length of between 300 and 400 days.

These recommendations should be taken with caution due to the small sample size but provide a starting point for evaluation informed program decisions.
