Minor adjustments, big change…
Located in Southern California, famed for its sunny weather along with the exceptional natural beauty, Adjustments Family Services provides the best high-quality drug and alcohol outpatient rehab facility. Our goal is to help our patients continue their commitment to recovery while receiving the necessary treatment to live a productive life, free from drug and alcohol dependence. We believe in treating the whole individual: mind, body, and spirit. We offer outpatient treatment programs for those who need structure and a program that is designed to address each patient as an individual.
We help our patients to reach and maintain recovery by teaching them how to live a meaningful life free of drugs and alcohol. We encourage them to understand their addiction and how to deal with living life in sobriety.
Our compassionate counseling staff works with individuals to target and work through the root causes of addiction, not just the symptoms. We encourage family members and spouses to be involved in the recovery process too. Our goal is to help individuals and their loved ones to build a recovery foundation to last a lifetime.
There’s a good reason addiction is known as a “family disease”–it affects everyone who is close to the person with the substance abuse problem. If you’re beginning therapy for substance abuse
Don't Just Take Our Word For It
Going to treatment at Adjustments was one of the best programs I’ve participated in, they helped me get my life back. They have amazing staff and overall good-natured people. They focus on all aspects of counseling, case management, meetings, different types of therapy, including trauma, one on one counseling. This is coming from someone who has been traumatized and neglected. They helped me get to the root of the problem. Which most times can feel very uncomfortable but they provide groups that you participate in and communicate with other addicts and hear their life stories. They really are an organization of team working to help heal the conflicted minds of us addicts that we faced every day. I would highly recommend this treatment program to anyone suffering from substance abuse or mental health.
Adjustments Family Services changed my life!! Great food, great staff, wonderful place! Awesome to get to know the amazing clients and see that I was not alone in my recovery. I made friends for life in the short time I got to spend there. Not a better facility anywhere in my opinion!! The team of employees, from the Technicians all the way up to the Owner, all have a patient-first mentality.
Where do I even begin? I first want to thank everyone at AFS they truly go above and beyond for their clients. I’ve gone to several detox and outpatient programs and this is the first one I felt loved and appreciated. The program has helped me in so many ways. Gave me tools to live life on life’s terms. I wouldn’t be where I am today without this program.
