Horrible facility. Took $15k then said the treatment facility could not help my wife. Then they wouldn't refund the money. Stay away!!!

South Coast Counseling is the best treatment center I have ever been to (and I have been to over half a dozen). You feel like family when you are here. There is a lot of staff always accessible to you from nurses to counselors to therapists. You really get the feeling that they care about you and your recovery. The food was always amazing, they took us to a really nice gym every day, and we went to the beach often for groups and recreation so don\'t forget your gym clothes and bathing suit! I have been clean since my detox and I can\'t wait to go back and get a cake for my one year of sobriety in a few short months!! I would recommend SCC to anyone that needs to go to treatment for the first time or the 6th time because it didn\'t work before like me :) Sincerely, Brittany
