Since 1950, Pathfinders has been helping individuals suffering from the disease of addiction. The residential rehab offers long-term substance abuse treatment for men in a safe, structured and pro-social environment. Using a bio-psycho-social approach to alcohol and drug addiction, as well as 12-Step philosophy, the facility equips clients with the skills and tools necessary to live a healthy, productive and independent life in sobriety.

Facility Highlights

  • Relapse Prevention
  • Addiction Education
  • Literature Study

Specialization

  • Residential Treatment
    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
  • 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.

I came in with nothing but the clothes on my back, and I've seen other men come in the same way. And because of the strength of the staff and support group/meetings, people can walk away from here with a job and a new life, a new beginning. The staff and meetings and support from other men in recovery are very encouraging.It's a free program, it's not perfect living quarters but it's clean and they do their best.

A lot of guys have gotten sober and stayed sober and learned how to live life here. This is a pretty good place for men to learn how to work a recovery program, they help and encourage job placement and structure.

Every last staff member at Pathfinders is a successfully recovered addict and/or alcoholic. The AA meetings held on site are some of the best in San Diego. The chef is an outstanding cook, making healthy, top-quality meals with love for the residents. Pathfinders is a social model recovery community encompassing three large residences, on-site office and meeting hall, a separate corporate headquarters and multi-unit dual-diagnosis sober-living establishments. The alumni keep coming back to work with and encourage newcomers, who are welcomed warmly by both staff and existing residents. It is the finest treatment option I could imagine for any man seeking help with alcoholism and/or drug addiction.
