I have been addicted to opiates for 20 years. After pressure from my family I made the decision to try to get clean. I chose Dana Point Rehab Campus after much research. The things that attracted me were the small size and the individual attention it promised. I spent 28 days there free from drugs. I was a difficult client but received the individual attention you promised. The Psychologist on staff was a great help to me. I received the care I was promised and have much hope for the future. I would recommend Dana Point Recovery to anyone looking for a new future.

I cannot find powerful enough words to describe my gratitude for CRC. I came in numbed, lost, and broken from my addiction and was welcomed with arms wide open just as I was. I can’t recall a time I felt safer and genuinely cared for by a team that truly understood firsthand what I was going through. This place helped me start to find the cause of my addiction and managed to sincerely save me from myself while providing me the training and skills needed to combat this in the future.

I have been dealing with alcohol dependency off and on for the last 12 years.
I’ve spent a month in a rehab center some years back, but relapsed again after several years of sobriety.

At some point later I spent two days at a “very high priced” in-house rehab and left due to the lack of meaningful programming and staff which had little experience.

I am thankful that recently I found the California Rehab Campus in Dana Point.
In my opinion, I have never seen such a caring and committed staff and the programming was taught by Master and PHD level Psychologists and Therapists. You also meet with a physician to assess current meds.
Its’ also much more personal and intimate as they average 5 – 6 clients only, which allows for great connections with other clients and greater personal attention with programming for the clients.

This was an exceptional experience for me. I’ve learned things I haven’t heard of or practiced elsewhere. It’s given me a strong base and confidence in my current recovery, as well as more enjoyment of day-to-day life.”

(Mother of CRC Alumni)

CRC didn’t just save my life as many rehabs had before. It sent me off with a sense of purpose, connection, and love of life that I hadn’t felt since childhood. The feeling of hopelessness and despair was replaced with gratitude and renewed sense of wonderment and pure joy of life. The custom-tailored approach and the competent and caring staff made me both comfortable and productive. I have come to appreciate how valuable time is and can’t think of any time in my life that was better spent. They will always be my supportive family that helped me realize I loved myself and the company of others much more than my addiction.

– Jason L
(PhD, Medical Device Engineer)

My experience here was one I’ll never forget. The complete devotion by the entire staff to the recovery of their clients is outstanding. I left the facility a much different person from how I arrived. I have all of the tools needed to continue my life of sobriety. I’m so very grateful to have had this experience.
