  • Residential Treatment

    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
  • 12-Step

    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

This place is a dumpster fire. Its nowhere near as good as they make it sound. If youre a convict trying to kill your paper then go there. Because thats all its good for. And thats 99% of the "patients." Do not pay to go there. Its a dirt farm. Theirs no livestock or garden. Their trails are a big dirt circle and the food is on par with county jail. Avoid at all costs. I actually paid to go there. Worst mistake ever. And when I expressed thoughts of leaving early they marooned me with no money at a high desert casino with no way back into san diego. And I had come from new england. Its run by heartless condescending peoples. And they never get beyond the first four steps in AA because the entire place is a revolving door
