APEX History

Once upon a time, two addiction treatment individuals met fortuitously at a local thrift store in San Diego. One knew addiction as a profession, working for 15 years with people who struggle with addictive illness, helping them learn how to overcome addiction. The other knew addiction as a reality, beating an illness that once threatened to consume him. Now, sober for over a decade, he worked to share his success and experience with others. Together they had one thing in common, a vision to create the very finest drug and alcohol treatment program; to make the experience life changing, affordable, and successfully bring this healing to people from all walks and backgrounds. Apex was created to break the mold of Rehab, by implementing differing views and perspectives, different models and philosophies, always having an open mind to all peoples experience, both staff and clientele, all with the common goal of treating each individual that comes into our program with best evidence based practices, best professional staff, and philosophy that no one is too far gone to discover the answer that will make them well.
