How We Treat Addiction

Located on a beautiful hillside overlooking the Southern California ocean, our rehab is the ultimate environment for addiction treatment. Upon arrival, clients are assessed by our skilled clinicians who then create an individualized treatment plan.

Look at the Reviews

The staff was very involved and made me feel safe and at ease during the hardest time of my life. I recommend Monarch to anyone that wants a safe, comfortable, and compassionate team behind your recovery.
Today I am celebrating one year of sobriety! Monarch helped me find the tools I needed to build my new life in recovery. It wasn’t an easy start but with the patience and help of the staff I was well on my way to a much happier and fulfilling life.
This place is absolutely amazing. The people are super down to earth and I had the best experience of my life there. I was only there for a short time, but the respect they have for you really showed me that they cared. You get everything you need to get better and they help you get back to a stable living to better your life. It’s a beautiful view guys.
My experience at Monarch Shores was one well worth the time. They provide a safe and caring facility where one can learn how to cope with the triggers that cause one to abuse substances. My 30 days at Monarch Shores will always be remembered as a valuable time in my life where I was fully supported by the staff and the other clients.

About Our Helpline’s helpline is a private and convenient solution for individuals seeking treatment for addiction or mental illness.

Calls to our helpline (all non-facility specific 1-8XX numbers) will be answered by Recovery Advisors, American Addiction Centers, or one of our verified local treatment partners. Calls are routed based on geographic location.

Our helpline is offered at no cost to you and with no obligation to enter into treatment. In some cases, Live Another Day charges our verified partner a modest cost per call, which helps us cover the costs of building and maintaining our website. We do not receive any commission or fee that is dependent upon which treatment provider a visitor ultimately selects.
