This is truly the only residential treatment center that I actually felt a part of the family and I've been to over 10 places. They made me feel welcome from the start and the staff is loving and caring. I couldn't ask for a better experience and I would give it a chance if you want to stay sober. This is the best place to be if you really want this. Peace & love<3

California Care provided excellent service. The team helped me navigate through the treatment process when my husband needed help. They communicated with me throughout the entire process which gave me peace of mind during a scary and stressful time for my family. They took our insurance and made the process as easy as possible. I have nothing but good things to say about California Care.

My experience here was a good one, the detox house was modern and comfortable, the staff is nice and genuinely interested in the success of their clients, and the outings/activities are better than other detoxes like going to the movies, beach outings, and AA, NA, and CA meetings regularly. My only complaint is that in my experience some of the outings were unprepared prior which lead to some improvising and running in circles

This is a review from a mothers perspective regarding California Care. They have been absolutely phenomenal to work with regarding my sons care and have worked tirelessly to get insurance to cover the treatment deemed necessary for his success in recovery. Hollly provided me with updates every step of the way and it never felt like I was "bothering" them. Thank you Holly for being on our team when the world of insurance was fighting against us. Prior to California Care, when looking at facilities to treat my son, I was distracted by the location and the facility pictures. Please don't make the same mistake I did and get it right the first time. This is one of the places that even my son has agreed with me that the staff are very caring and very nice. He actually likes them and wanted to do residential. Any mothers in my situation would know that this is a sign of hope or the right place. I just happen to think this is both and the turning point. To the people and staff at CCR - Keep doing what you are doing. You are giving people not only a chance but hope. I cannot thank you enough. To Jason, they owner, CCR is not like the others... stay that way.

I can’t say enough great things about California Care. I came in here completely broken. They take great care of you in the detox process and have beautiful, clean facilities. During residential, you’ll learn about the disease, ways to cope, get taken to meetings, fed great meals and how to live a life of sobriety. The staff is outstanding. I owe a lot to California Care. Thank you!
