The Camp Recovery Center

3192 Glen Canyon Road, Scotts Valley, California, 95066
Located in the tranquility of the Santa Cruz redwoods, The Camp Recovery Center provides highly structured treatment for adults and adolescents who are struggling with an addiction to drugs and/or alcohol. The motto here is “recovery means life.” The goal for this holistic, multi-modality treatment program is to help clients regain an appreciation for the pleasures of a healthy lifestyle, free from the restraints of chemical dependency.

Facility Highlights

  • Holistic Drug Rehabilitation
  • Family Programs
  • Aftercare


  • Detoxification Programs

    At The Camp, during the admissions process, there will be a thorough screening to analyze how acute the chemical dependency is. Often, the first step on the road to recovery may be to begin a drug or alcohol detoxification process. The primary goal of detoxification is physical stabilization and comfort under the supervision of our staff.
