23331 El Toro Rd, Suite 102, Lake Forest, California, 92630
At Miracle Recovery Center, we believe that connection, balance and daily action is the recipe necessary for a life lived well free from addiction. We believe that addiction treatment isn't just about quitting drugs and or alcohol and remaining abstinent, but about recovering your entire self and creating a new life worth living, a life of freedom. Our treatment program is not solely about relapse prevention or substance abuse education, although included. It's about digging deeper emotionally and working through the trauma or unmet needs from childhood that may have caused the addiction to begin with along with creating joy-filled opportunities to find your true purpose and feel happy again. We believe that working through these stressful issues with an experienced professional in a safe and confidential setting, provides the healing necessary to remain drug and alcohol free for a lifetime. We know that a new life awaits any individual willing to have an open mind, the ability to trust, and the desire to be of service and share their experience with other who are struggling. In doing so, an individual can stay sober and find their true purpose, enjoying life one day at a time.
