Treatment for Addiction

Residential treatment for addiction is a major lifestyle change. Everything about it takes getting used to, which is why we don’t try to do everything at once.

The first phase in residential treatment for addiction is usually detox, followed by a mix of therapy and addiction treatment over the course of a month—sometimes longer depending on the client’s needs. Our STRIVE outpatient program can be either a step down following residential treatment for addiction or the starting point for patients who need or prefer intensive outpatient therapy. The final phase is aftercare, or follow-up.

Balboa Horizons tailors each phase to individual needs, but the goal is always the same: Maximize each patient’s time, comfort, and chances for success.

What to Expect in Treatment

We believe rehab should be a balance of serious treatment and serious fun. We pair traditional and new therapies with unique experiences to help you learn and grow as you recover.

Our Rock to Recovery program teaches you to play instruments, write and record music with professional musicians, and form your own band!
