Building a Sober Network
Being sober during treatment is different than being sober outside of a rehab setting. Getting you or your loved one back to the real world after rehab is important. Early in our treatment programs, we stress community involvement for clients by encouraging their involvement in local, aftercare-focused activities. For example, clients are able to exercise and work out at an offsite gym, attend community 12-Step, and other support meetings.
Focus on Recovery
San Diego Addiction Treatment Center is a no-nonsense place. Clients work hard on their sobriety, try to get to the root of their problems, and learn to work together with their peers in rehab to develop a sense of responsibility and accountability for their addiction behaviors and consequences.
