True Recovery

20351 SW Acacia St. 2nd Floor, Newport Beach, California, 92660
True Recovery's addiction treatment program was founded in 2014 by individuals who saw something missing in traditional treatment programs. Refusal to let go of old philosophies, a one size fits all approach, and high caseloads with a lack of individualized care resulted in high recidivism and an ultimate lack of hope. True Recovery's model of treatment seeks to address all of these shortcomings and provide a real transition into life for the client. Small groups, small caseloads, advanced psychological and psychiatric techniques, and truly evidence based therapies create the individualized care that all clients receive at True Recovery. Our goal is for the client to identify his goals and find the exact combination of therapeutic techniques and life skills necessary to meet them. By focusing on the individual's passions to create a customized approach each client's life potential is realized and True Recovery begins on the date of admission. True Recovery's main addiction treatment campus is located in Newport Beach in Southern California. Our supportive housing is located within a few blocks of the main campus in Costa Mesa and surrounding areas. With numerous beaches within a few miles, the bay and aquatic nature preserves within steps, and near perfect weather year round, our program and our clients are fortunate to take advantage of all that drug and alcohol treatment in Orange County has to offer

The facility also provides medical detox, which is available in only 15 percent of non-hospital facilities in California.


Upon admission, clients undergo a substance use assessment and psychiatric evaluation to help True Recovery clinicians determine an individualized plan of care.

They are also introduced to 12-step principles, as well as alternative support groups. In addition, holistic activities such as Tai Chi, yoga, and art and music therapy are offered.
