A Successful Approach to Drug Rehabilitation

When Ventura Recovery Center opened its doors in the Los Angeles area in 1989, our mission was simple: to provide the very best drug rehab and alcohol addiction treatment in a comfortable and calm, friendly setting. We have grown a lot since then, but our mission is still clear. Proven success rates, JCAHO accreditation, and unique approach sets us apart from the rest. Our clients are not patients to us, they are family.

The Ventura Recovery Center singular approach to alcohol rehab and drug rehab embraces physical, emotional, and psychological health. A JCAHO accredited medically supervised drug detox treatment center, we  provide inpatient drug rehab,  intensive outpatient treatment, in a dual diagnosis environment.

We focus on the whole person. Specialized 30, 60 and 90-Day treatment options include individual and group therapy, allowing the time required to heal the body and renew the spirit. We also give you the tools to turn your life around once the program is completed. Making positive, thoughtful choices that lead to healthy and productive lives is the end goal of our alcoholism and drug addiction rehab treatment center.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

 “I am a HUGE fan of Ventura Recovery Center and will be for a lifetime.”

-David H | Ventura Recovery Center Client

David H. Ventura Recovery Center Client

My sister and I were greeted by Chris and Mike as we arrived, and they introduced us to the program and answered all of our questions. They made it clear that getting sober was just the first hurdle. LIVING sober is the real goal of the program. It has been over 100 days now, and the change in my sister is amazing. She is in your sober living facility, and finally learning to live sober. Her whole physical, spiritual, psychological and emotional persona has started to heal. She is finding pleasure in sobriety, which has never happened before. I know there are no guarantees, but this is the most hopeful I have felt in years.

Inpatient Drug Rehab Center

Inpatient drug rehab has been proven to have the highest success rates among the various types of substance abuse treatment. Group and individual therapy sessions, life skills workshops, and community integration set our program of recovery apart. Our clients continue the drug rehabilitation process, build social bonds and enjoy activities like art therapy, yoga, trips to the beach and playing sports.

mental health treatment with drug addiction

Dual Diagnosis Drug Rehab Center

Drug addiction or substance abuse is often coupled with a mental disorder like PTSD, depression or bipolar disorder. This is called "co-occurring" or dual diagnosis. Both disorders need to be treated at the same time, involving psychiatric care as well as traditional counseling. So we treat these co-occurring disorders with individualized plans for profound healing.

“The staff and owners know what they are talking about because they’ve been through it themselves. This is what separates Ventura Recovery Center from the country club “rehabs”. Alcoholism is a deadly, progressive disease. Ventura Recovery Center understands this, and is the best choice for anyone who is serious about recovery, serious about saving their own life, and serious about freedom from drugs and alcohol.”

Kevin B., alumni
