Treatment Options

We have successfully treated countless substance abuse addictions, including:

  • Alcohol
  • Barbiturates (Sedatives)
  • Benzodiazepines (Anxiety medication)
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Inhalants

We also offer treatment for the following mental health struggles:

Treatment begins with you undergoing a detox that will involve medical supervision, monitoring, and support during withdrawals. Once you have stabilized and are free of physical dependence, the focus of our treatment plan turns to discern the underlying root causes of your substance abuse. Through dialogue and introspection, we ascertain your triggers and stressors. From there, we strategize and educate you on various therapies and techniques you can employ to stave off cravings or relapse.

The Apex residential facility is located on beautiful Mt. Helix in La Mesa, San Diego. Our scenic views and year-round sunshine make it the perfect place to relax and recover, and the lodgings of the facility are more akin to the comforts of home rather than hospital rooms. The Apex Recovery detox clinic finds the ideal balance between high-tech and luxury so that our clients feel both safe and comfortable as they battle withdrawals.

Few things are more curative than time spent under the California sun. We recognize the therapeutic significance of immersion in nature. Therefore, we encourage our clients to spend plenty of time outside the facility, engaging in a variety of healthy, monitored activities. Whether you are from the area or out-of-state, there are so many incredible places to go and see.

Our grounds are close to a variety of breathtaking locations where you and the team can go relax or exercise, including various hiking trails, beaches, parks, and gardens. The surrounding location is one of the best facets of our facility and we want you to get the most out of it… especially if you are not from here.
