Hillcrest Recovery is a drug and alcohol treatment center that’s located in the Chatsworth area of Los Angeles, CA.

The Hillcrest Recovery Program gets to the bottom of these problems, and gives you lifelong tools to overcome them. Chatsworth, California

Sober Life Recovery Solutions

San Diego, California

Sober Life Recovery Solutions

San Diego, California

Sober Life Recovery Solutions is a drug and alcohol treatment facility that emphasizes the importance of using evidence-based therapies in order to effectively treat substance use disorders. Each client is assessed at the beginning of this process to pinpoint any underlying traumas that also need to be treated. This assessment helps both the client and the clinician better understand which areas of their life are in need of treatment and how best to address them. Treatment plans through Sober Life include individual therapy, family therapy, experiential activities, exercise, and community-based group therapies that give clients the opportunity to use new skills and coping mechanisms outside of the rehab setting. Other programs may be available based on the individual needs of the specific client, and these will be determined by their clinician throughout the treatment process. Because Sober Life Recovery is an outpatient treatment program, clients are able to choose a schedule that best fits their daily lifestyle, and they are able to commit to a number of hours each week that makes sense for them.
