orange county detox program
Detox Orange County

The process of recovery begins with a medically supervised detoxification—pharmacologic support, nutrition, and monitored activities help ensure a safe and comfortable detox from the withdrawal symptoms. Balboa Horizons’ clinical team is highly trained to deal with the challenges involved with addiction treatment and recovery.

Residential Program

Balboa Horizons programs are designed to create a solid foundation for sustainable recovery. This intensive program focuses on recovery and wellness with each client attending regular groups, meetings, and therapy sessions. Clients work individually with the treatment team to begin the work of creating and executing a successful life plan for the future.

outpatient program
Outpatient Program

Balboa Horizons provides transitional living and outpatient programs to help clients reenter mainstream life with the right structure and support. In transitional living, clients learn to balance treatment with everyday obligations such as employment and education. Clients also learn how to develop healthy interpersonal relationships, aided by the support of a healthy peer community.

Family Program

Studies show that families who are informed about addiction and recovery—and participate in their own recovery process—optimize their loved one’s recovery and chances for longterm sobriety and success. We recognize that family members often need their own recovery process and encourage families to participate in treatment through education and therapy.

Gender-Specific, Individualized Addiction Treatment

Addiction is a complex disease. Quitting cold-turkey rarely works because it ignores the factors that fueled the addiction in the first place. Drugs and alcohol are just substitutes for healthy habits and coping techniques that may never have been learned. Questions around why they ever started to drink or use is often a mystery to the addict. To family and friends, it appears that self-destruction is a conscious choice when in fact it’s much more complicated than that.

Addiction is a lonely, painful thing. At Balboa Horizons, the client is guided by a team that focuses entirely on long-term recovery, and family involvement is an important part of being part of the process. In understanding addiction, it becomes less of a mystery or potent adversary. In understanding yourself, you become empowered and confident.

Our programs adapt to fit you and your specific needs. Some clients need detox and residential care while others benefit from intensive outpatient and aftercare therapy. Whatever your situation, you can trust Balboa Horizons to design a program perfectly suited to you.

What Sets Balboa Horizons Apart

Rehab is a big commitment. Every journey with Balboa Horizons begins with a 1:1 consultation to assess your addiction, immediate needs, goals and personal circumstances. From there, we’ll work together to develop a personalized recovery program that will free you from addiction and move you toward a fulfilling and meaningful life. Change and personal transformation is not easy. Balboa will walk with you every step of the way.

  • Sincere empathy and care. We love what we do and are deeply invested in our clients.
  • Team approach. Meet with a case manager, therapist, and psychiatrist each week to discuss your care. When we say we’re a team, we mean it!
  • No judgment, no blame, no shame! Addiction isn’t about finding fault, it’s about becoming stronger. It’s not a moral failing but a sign of a deeper problem. We understand what addicts go through.
  • Medical expertise and the latest treatment approaches. Our treatment is overseen by medical professionals. Our recovery team understands the latest and most effective modalities, from traditional therapies to holistic and alternative medicine.
  • Extensive support for families by offering a free 2-hour community family workshop every Thursday night, in addition to our 4-day family program focused on client families.
  • Gender-specific programs. We tailor our therapies to the individual, with particular respect for gender and sexual identity.

Balboa Horizons allowed me to be who I truly am, to acknowledge who I am as a person, and how to build off of that. They gave me both the spiritual and the therapeutic resources to craft my best life. I’m going on two years of sobriety, and couldn’t have done it without my family at Balboa Horizons.

- Michael G, Santa Ana, CA

We were so impressed with the staff at Balboa. We really felt all of you cared so much for our daughter and were truly committed and believed in the program. We feel so blessed to have found Balboa Horizons!

- Robin F., Beverly Hills, CA

I knew things were going to change when I came to Balboa Horizons, but I didn’t realize the magnitude of the changes that would occur within me. I went from being hopeless to having hope. My steps are lighter, my heart is gladder and that’s all thanks to the amazing staff at Balboa Horizons.

- John H., Newport Beach, CA

As his mother, I am so grateful for his recovery and that fact that ‘I have my son back.’ He still maintains contact with two friends he met through the program, and they both came to his wedding in November 2014. They all have a connection and I know that they will all be lifelong friends. I am very proud of all of them!

- Teresa S., Tulare, CA

I felt I might lose my child forever to the disease of addiction. Today my son is over 15 months sober, working a program, employed, saving money, supporting himself, driving his own vehicle, and doing for others. He recently told me, ‘For the first time in my life, I am really happy.’ I will be forever grateful to the Balboa Horizons staff. I know it is always up to the individual to do the work, but you are providing the environment and expertise to facilitate recovery from a deadly disease.

- Frank O., Port Orchard, WA

- Justin M., Longview, WA

I’m grateful that Balboa Horizons has provided me with a structured living environment and a foundation for learning how to live a sober and productive life.
