  • 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.
  • Client & Family Support Groups

    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

Mission Recovery also offers detox services. According to a 2017 SAMHSA survey, 15.8 percent of non-hospital rehabs in California offer detox in an outpatient setting while 15 percent offer detox in a residential setting.


Treatment begins with a comprehensive assessment to identify each client's specific needs. Clients work with clinical specialists to develop an individualized treatment plan. Treatment focuses on evidence-based methods and 12-step principles.

Clients in need of immediate intervention are enrolled in the social detox program, which is non-medical. According to Mission Recovery's website, individuals in the detox program are carefully monitored at all times in a structured residential inpatient setting.

Residential treatment generally lasts 30 days, but clients can stay up to three months if needed. A 2017 SAMHSA survey indicates that 24.7 percent of rehabs in California offer a short-term (30 days or fewer) residential treatment program.

Many of the courses are designed to help clients develop coping and sober living skills.

Beyond evidence-based and traditional approaches, the center offers holistic treatment methods and activities to help clients achieve more balanced, well-rounded lives. These include meditation training and stress-reduction techniques, which can help clients learn to better handle everyday stressors and anxiety.
