23304 Happy Valley Dr., Newhall, California, 91321
Valley Recovery Center provides personalized treatment for men with addictions to alcohol, drugs, gambling, and more. We strive to provide our patients with a supportive environment and community, which comes naturally to us because we are family owned and operated. We also see how crucial it is for loved ones and families to be part of our patient’s recovery, because they are a vital part of the support system that those in recovery need to be able to turn to for help. When patients come to Valley Recovery Center, they see that they are part of a community dedicated to helping them achieve recovery. In order for the treatment we provide to truly work, patients must be receptive to it and feel that it addresses their individual needs. We offer a variety of programs to meet those needs, including those with a spiritual focus, those that deal with patients’ behaviors and triggers, and 12-step programs. Patients will progress through these programs at their own pace, but the environment and treatment we provide is structured to ensure that they make progress. The treatment we provide is aimed at allowing clients to find the programs that really address their addiction experience and personal issues, and offering them a community that provides support and encouragement along the way. Of course, treatment is only part of the recovery process. Our patients will need to return to their lives and be able to handle the challenges life throws at them while maintaining their sobriety. To help them with this, we offer programs that encourage them to develop life skills like applying to schools, building resumes, and more. We also offer many aftercare services that will provide them with support and care long after their residential treatment has ended.

  • Men's Issues
  • Life Coaching


  • Individualized Treatment

    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
  • Detox

    Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.
