Alcohol and drug addiction are powerful diseases that require an individualized treatment plan from a coordinated team of experts. People who’ve tried to quit without support often feel their case is hopeless and they’re doomed to repeat the addiction cycle forever, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. A personalized addiction treatment center that takes into account your unique history and needs can set anyone free from drug or alcohol addiction.

Ranch Creek Recovery’s California drug rehab center is based in Murrieta and Temecula and is about an hour’s drive from San Diego. We provide both a residential recovery program and outpatient rehab services. We care deeply about the individual behind the addiction and help you understand the reasons you turned to substance abuse to help you gain control over addiction for good.

Staff: 4.5/5Owner, Director, therapists, nurses, counselors, and support staff are all really great. I had no issues with anyone in particular. They are all there to help you however they can. I found that everyone advocated for my well being, were available when I needed them, and did their best to support me, check in on me, and make sure I was happy and comfortable.(why not 5/5? They have had a bunch of turnover and need to update their website with their newer staff members and qualifications. Additionally the Doctors they partner with were not as thorough as I would have wanted, and were kind of pushy with medications)Program: 4/5Small groups for the win! You get a lot of attention if you need it. This is a Holistic approach rehab. They do not focus on any 12 step programs. You have daily classes with different counselors, focusing on the science behind addiction, anger management, talk therapy, art therapy, equine therapy, nutrition, and much more. You have one-on-one sessions twice a week with a Licensed Therapist, and you have access to a gym daily, with a yoga instructor and trainer coming a few times a week. You also have a docent that comes once a week to do sound therapy, and you can learn techniques such as tapping. They have 2 doctors on staff you will have Zoom appointments with, and someone is always present to distribute morning, afternoon, and bedtime medication. You can also always grab whomever is on-call to talk through any issues or questions you have.(why not 5/5? Overall I found that there was too much down-time. I got bored and restless with that much free time and I craved more structure. Additionally I thought that the family Zoom sessions could have served as a stronger resource for loved ones)Location: 4/5Murrieta is a quiet, tranquil area, with mountain views, a lot of farmland, and very little public noise to distract you. When you do leave the house, you get to visit a small farm that is very close by to interact with horses and goats, etc. You also have an outing on Saturdays for a few hours that allows you as a group to get out of the house. The immediate area has all the basic stores and activities you would want, like target/walmart/grocery/7-11/etc as well as mini golf, bowling... You do need to decide as a group where you want to go because you have 1 chaperone and need to stay together at all times.(why not 5/5? There are 2 different houses located about 10 minutes away from each other. The Bass house advertised on the website is much nicer and larger than the Doreen house. During my time the clients staying at the Doreen house were shuttled over to the Bass house for our daily classes and sessions, not being able to utilize their own kitchen, rooms, and bathrooms during the day. I was also told by clients that the Doreen house was not as nice as the Bass House)Amenities: 4/5Pool - (I was there in the winter, so it was not heated and basically unusable, however, I did do some cold plunges just for the shock)Hot tub - available once a week on Friday eveningsYard - Large Grass Backyard and cement patio with tables and chairsGym - Available daily. TV for movies or music. Free weights, yoga mats, and a few outdated cardio machines that mostly worked.Kitchen - Large kitchen, multiple Fridges/Freezers, Huge pantry for preparing anything you want, ovens, microwave, toasters, dishwasher, outdoor gas grill, etc...Pool table, ping pong table, arts and crafts table, outdoor TV, Indoor TV, Computer, land-line house phone.Comfortable rooms and bathrooms with laundry access, and provided bedding and towels.(why not 5/5? I was disappointed that it wasn't clear that the pool and hot tub didn't have daily access as advertised, and that the gym was more outdated than described/pictured. They also could make some very inexpensive recreation investments like a basketball for their outdoor hoop, soccer ball, frisbees, croquet set, bocce, etc for their giant lawn to be used during the extensive downtime)

Ranch Creek Recovery is the best way to start your new healthy way of life. This program actually saved my life and my sanity. Their Holistic approach was amazing and I learned so much from my counselors and Dr. Dena. With only a limited number of participants in the house at one time, you are guaranteed the one on one time, as well as the group counseling they offer in a safe and comfortable setting. They make you aware that they truly care and are there to support you , listen to you, and most important to teach you. Teach you information about triggers, cognitive behavior and how to stay sober. They include therapy through others means such as Yoga, Meditation, working with Horses and even Physical Training. Ranch Creek makes sure when you leave you are good, Mind, Body and Soul. They have an excellent Intensive Outpatient Program (10) weeks that helps navigate your way back into life. A year ago (received my one year chip June 8, 2022) I was lost and a raging out of control alcoholic. I can proudly say today that I am not. I will always be an alcoholic with an addictive personality. But now I have tools, personal contacts and the faith in myself that I have never had before in my 9 years searching for sobriety. I often reflect back on my time at the Bass house. I am probably one of the few that actually stayed 60 days because I had so much to learn. My insurance did not cover all of the last days, but it was worth it to me, so I stayed. I am so grateful to so many of the staff, Jimmie, Christine, Jonathon, Dr. Dena and countless extended staff to name a few, because there were more. I would not be here to tell you it works, because without the treatment and the help I received, I alive today to tell my journey. If you are ready to face the truth, please give them a call. I promise if you are committed, you will never be the same as when you walked in. Thank you Ranch Creek Recovery.

I had long term sobriety and was under a lot of stress from my professional position. I began to use cannabis recreationally and soon became dependent. I sought recovery, because I could not stop using cannabis on my own. It was causing issues with my family and in my professional life. I signed up with Rancho Creek Recovery, through my insurance. I attended the pm IOP zoom sessions with Lorri. Her group sessions and the materials she provided, helped me to get off of cannabis. Lorri was a big help in giving me strategies to stay sober and to manage the cravings and ways to deal with my work stress. I would strongly recommend Rancho Creek Recovery's outpatient program and the pm IOP zoom sessions with Lorri. She was a great professional to work with.

I've had a few stints with rehab and none even skinned the surface of what I learned here. Located on a beautiful property in the foothills of Murrieta, with in house groups led by instructors that break it down so in depth. My perspective had a total shift and I can honestly say I owe my life and the promise of a new future to this facility and it's faculty. If you're willing to do the work this is the place to get into your core issues and help you recover from the lifestyle and vices that one is addicted to. I recommend this place to anyone who wants something different from life. DBT, CBT, recovery education, family therapy are just a few of the groups and The program director and Clinical director hand picked a team that is progressive, informed, patient, caring and passionate about what they do. I encourage anyone who's seeking treatment to look into this program I first hand watched others and had my life transformed.

Coming to Ranch Creek Recovery, I had been through three different inpatient chemical treatment facilities in CA. I was feeling lost and somewhat hopeless. The serene setting gave me peace and I began healing. The counselors were very inspiring and helped me grow in ways I haven’t experienced in years. I began to see the bigger picture that a life in sobriety can give you. Although I am somewhat scared to leave the comfort and security that Ranch Creek Recovery and staff has brought me, I am also excited to share my growth with my family and to start my new life. Thank you RCR!

If you were to travel from San Diego to one of our two residential treatment facilities, below is what you can expect from our treatment programs at Ranch Creek Recovery.

If you were to travel from San Diego to one of our two residential treatment facilities, below is what you can expect from our treatment programs at Ranch Creek Recovery.

Detox and Medication Assisted Treatment

Drug detox is the first step of the recovery journey at Ranch Creek Recovery for many San Diego, CA residents, but it should never be the last. We understand that clearing your system of substances is just the beginning of the recovery process and by no means a cure for addiction. We offer both medication assisted treatment and sub-acute detox services, which are less intensive than an inpatient detox but can serve as a step down from it or as a first step for someone with a moderate to severe addiction.

Our aim during detox is to minimize the discomfort associated with withdrawal symptoms and support you physically, emotionally and holistically through this vulnerable process. We assess whether you require the service during your intake assessment, and once complete, you’re primed for therapy and holistic treatment.

Individualized Treatment Options

One of the standout aspects of care at our drug rehab centers near San Diego is the fact that each facility only has six beds. This means our treatment team of addiction specialists has plenty of time to dedicate to each client and no one gets left behind. Each treatment plan is continually assessed and reassessed to ensure it’s meeting your specific needs, and you’ll learn which approaches work best for you and which ones don’t.

We take a multipronged approach, combining traditional therapy such as CBT and DBT with holistic rehab approaches such as yoga, group therapy, guided meditation, fitness and equine-assisted therapy. What works for one person might not work for another, and we’ll help you determine the perfect combination for your individual requirements.

Relapse Prevention

Addiction is a chronic disease, which means there’s no cure for it, but you can take steps to gain full control over your symptoms. Just like hypertension or diabetes, you’ll need to actively maintain recovery and keep the condition in mind every day — otherwise, symptoms can resurface.

We help you develop the necessary coping skills to deal with triggers, in addition to teaching you the mechanism behind relapse and how to recognize your own early warning signs.

Family Education

While most people’s families are well-meaning, the general public’s lack of understanding of addiction and mental health treatment means their well-intentioned interventions can sometimes do more harm than good. Unless you’re a substance abuse treatment expert, you don’t intuitively understand how to help someone who struggles with a substance use disorder.

Family education and counseling provide an opportunity for you and your family members to learn how to set healthy boundaries, communicate effectively and understand the mechanism behind addiction.

Cognitive and Dialectical Behavior Therapy

For many San Diego residents who struggle with addiction, mental health treatment is also required. This is because drugs and alcohol wreak havoc with the chemicals inside your brain and body that are responsible for governing your behavior, mood and movement.

Some people use substances to try to self-medicate, but these short-term solutions to emotional dysregulation inevitably do more harm than good to your overall mental health. Other people find drugs or alcohol cause issues with their mood and emotions that were dormant or not present before the onset of addiction.

Whether drugs or alcohol are a symptom or a cause of mental health issues, evidence-based mental health services such as cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy can help you understand yourself and take steps to modify your responses. When practiced alongside experiential approaches, you can learn to mindfully and gently redirect your actions away from unhealthy coping mechanisms and towards healthy ones.

Holistic Treatment Practices

Holistic treatment means taking into account the entire individual behind the addiction, including mind, body and spirit. Many people who struggle with addiction haven’t been taught healthy coping mechanisms or struggle to self-soothe through no fault of their own. Experiential therapy helps you build skills and resilience that make it easier to maintain sobriety and stand firm in the face of triggers and stress that negatively affect your mental health.

For example, physical exercise in the form of yoga, cardio and resistance training provides nourishment to the body, which in turn makes the mind and spirit stronger. Activities such as mindfulness and guided meditation allow you to find calm and quiet when your mind is racing, helping you focus on what matters most, even when you’re under stress. Equine-assisted therapy and gong sound healing therapy impact the body but resonate on a spiritual level, helping you reconnect with yourself and nature.

Our intensive outpatient program near San Diego

Ranch Creek's intensive outpatient program facility

In addition to our residential rehab program, we offer intensive outpatient programs in Temecula for drug and alcohol abuse treatment. This setting is perfect for people who’ve lost their freedom to substances but aren’t able to commit to long-term residential care for whatever reason.

Daytime and evening sessions are available, and you attend the center three times a week for eight weeks.

Substance Use Disorders We Treat

Group therapy drug rehab session in San Diego

The incidence of drug and alcohol addiction continues to rise at an unprecedented rate. San Diego is one of the most affluent areas in the world, but it’s by no means immune to addiction. At our three treatment centers, we treat the full spectrum of substance use disorders.

Let’s look at some of the most common addictions we’ve helped people overcome.

Alcohol Addiction

Alcoholism is the most common addiction in the United States, and it’s no less serious than any other drug addiction. In fact, due to its intense physical impact on the body, alcohol can be one of the most dangerous and challenging addictions to cope with and overcome. This is also partly due to the fact that consuming alcohol is perfectly legal, and there’s a fine line between being someone who likes to party and someone with a problem.

If alcohol is a major priority in your life and you don’t feel you can do without it, you probably need to seek the help of an alcohol treatment program. Our team at Ranch Creek helps individuals from San Diego overcome addiction to alcohol through the use of individualized care, holistic treatment, and a focus on treating the person, not the addiction.

Heroin and Opiate Treatment

Opiates are some of the most powerfully addictive substances known, and their reputation for causing people to become down and out and destitute is well known. This reputation adds an extra layer of shame to people who use the drugs, adding to the already significant stress caused by such all-consuming substances.

Thankfully, with guidance and support from experts, anyone can overcome opioid addiction and rebuild their life.

Fentanyl and Opioid Treatment

Fentanyl is a powerful opioid that is often abused in the San Diego area. It can be very addictive and dangerous.

If you are struggling with an addiction to fentanyl, we can help. Our comprehensive offerings from our three treatment centers near San Diego will help you overcome your addiction and get your life back on track.

Prescription Medication Dependence

Addiction to prescription medications often sneaks up on unsuspecting people who are seeking relief from symptoms such as insomnia and anxiety. The drugs that treat these conditions are not cures but temporary patches designed to be used on a short-term basis.

Using prescription meds long-term can make any preexisting symptoms worse, and drug rehab is often required because people underestimate the power of doctor-prescribed drugs.

Methamphetamine Treatment

Methamphetamine is a highly addictive and dangerous substance that can turn people’s lives upside down. Its powerful, long-lasting effects put users in serious danger, not just because of the substance itself but because of the behavior it can lead to.

If you’re struggling with a meth addiction, you don’t have to suffer alone and deserve to seek help from a safe, supportive treatment provider like Ranch Creek Recovery.

San Diego Drug Addiction Statistics

According to the San Diego District Attorney, 2017 was the first year that overdose deaths from opioids surpassed every other drug, including methamphetamine. There were 250 overdose deaths related to opioids alone that year. And with deaths from fentanyl overdose increasing by more than 2,100% in the five years between 2015 and 2020, the full extent of the local drug problem is becoming starkly clear.

While the statistics regarding drug abuse in San Diego are stark, you don’t have to become another statistic. Reach out to Ranch Creek Recovery today to regain control over your future and drop drugs or alcohol from your life for good.
