Our house was founded upon the principle of treating the whole person. Call our hotline, and gain access to one of the caring members of our admissions team who will personally arrange for detox services, rehab treatment, or the IOP that best serves you. Our referrals are with the state of California’s most reputable licensed and Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO)-accredited programs. For those individuals who need treatment programs outside of California, our admissions team will arrange placements in programs throughout the country.

Structured transitional living, or sober living in a halfway house, can oftentimes be underestimated and stigmatized in early recovery. When it comes to maintaining long term sobriety, structured transitional living can be fundamental in contributing to you or your loved one’s success.
Addiction to drugs or alcohol is blamable for millions of lives destroyed. The majority of people who have problems are teenagers and the elderly. Due to its two components, physical addiction, and psychological addiction, it is easy to lose control of your life and let the addiction control you.
It’s no secret that opioid addiction has spread rampantly throughout the United States. According to National Institute on Drug Abuse “Every day, more than 115 people in the United States die after overdosing on opioids. The misuse and addiction to opioids—including prescription pain relievers, heroin, and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl—is a serious national crisis that affects public health as well as social and economic welfare.”
Studies show that more than 85% of recovering addicts relapse and return to actively abusing drugs and/or alcohol, within the first year following treatment. Addiction has recently been acknowledged as “disease of the brain.” Whether you have been sober 3 years or 30 days, most would agree addiction is propelled by negative thinking. The common connection between all addicts is the fundamental inability to deal with emotions.
