SOBA Recovery Center is a Residential Primary Drug and Alcohol Treatment Program, which includes medically-supervised detoxification. We are licensed and certified by the State of California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs and the Joint Commission. The SOBA Recovery Center deploys a neuro-biological approach in order to accelerate the restoration and stabilization of the brain chemistry, and revitalize the body’s natural reward system. We have psycho-therapy groups, experiential therapy, educational groups, individual therapy and 12-Step work to build a solid foundation for long-term recovery.



Anyone who suffers from addiction to alcohol or drugs has a unique set of circumstances. In other words, we have found time and time again that, “one size doesn’t fit all.”

Each person has family relationships, livelihoods, upbringings, socio-economic backgrounds, and experiences that are unique in nature. More importantly, our entire treatment team knows from years of research that the physical ailments may also contribute to addiction and/or alcoholism. As a result, a detailed assessment is performed for the development of an individualized treatment plan by the treatment team.

During the assessment process, a biopsycho social profile is created and a primary therapist is assigned for the entire length of the clients stay with us.


Some individuals may not believe they need medical supervision during the detoxification period, it is vital to undergo supervised detox to ensure the client’s safety.

If you’re trying to get clean and change your lifestyle, the scariest part is often the detox. Perhaps you’ve tried detoxing before, only to find that the withdrawal symptoms and cravings were too much to deal with.

That’s where SOBA Recovery Center can help. We’re a luxury detox, and our goal is to keep you as pain-free and comfortable as possible while you detox.

Detox is a crucial procedure that aims to expel the chemicals from the individuals system.  Some signs of withdrawal may include changes in vital signs which can be indicative of a life-threatening condition and as a result detox should never be attempted unsupervised.  Depending on the type of substance the client has been abusing, detox can take anywhere from 7 days to 20 days.

Our unique detox system is monitored by some of the best clinicians in Southern California, and utilizes cutting edge techniques to make the process as safe and comfortable as possible.

Our Luxury Detox Facility

We offer a safe and confidential setting for you to detox, and we have plenty of luxurious amenities that make the process easier. These amenities include:

  • Flat-screen TVs for entertainment
  • Jacuzzis to relax
  • Private rooms to give you your own space
  • An on-site chef for high-quality meals

We set up your detox services based on your current level of addiction, which helps ensure that you are safe and get all the support you need while withdrawing from alcohol or other drugs.

Here is the full list of the substances we can help you detox from:

  • Alcohol
  • Opiates, including heroin, prescription pills and other types of opiates
  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Crystal meth
  • Suboxone
  • Hallucinogens
  • Methadone

With our knowledge of the effects every substance has on the body and what kind of withdrawals those substances cause, we’re prepared to make your detox as smooth as possible.

Our counselors and therapists available to help client’s discuss their fears and worries with regards to the detox procedure and the ordeals of addiction treatment. Presence of loved ones especially family members of close friends are also helpful in motivating the client to carry on with the treatment process.

What Makes Us Different

Here at SOBA Recovery Center, we’re committed to quality, and that includes the quality of our treatments and our facilities. We only hire the most experienced and skilled addiction doctors, and we’ve set up facilities that can accommodate all our clients needs.

What this means for you is a mostly painless detox with little suffering. Our doctors can prescribe appropriate medications when necessary to alleviate withdrawal symptoms.

Luxurious Amenities

Most clients get to go through their detoxes staying in their own private quarters and eating meals prepared by our private chef every day. You can distract yourself from your detox by watching a show or movie on one of our many flat-screen TVs.  If you’re feeling under the weather, you can soak your symptoms away in one of our hot jacuzzis. Our entire facility makes you feel at home and taken care of from the moment you walk in the door.

Staff Available Around the Clock

You can typically expect to see a doctor within one hour of getting admitted. Your doctor can figure out your treatment plan and let you know what to expect during your detox. Nurses will then administer any prescribed medications and monitor your vitals. There will always be staff available when you need them, but you will also be left on your own when you want to eat, relax and rest.

Let the Healing Begin

A detox at SOBA Recovery Center is just the first step you need to rid yourself of addiction. We also have residential treatment programs available of variable term lengths. You can enter one of those programs right away or go from our detox to a residential treatment program.

If you need to continue handling everyday responsibilities, we offer a supportive living environment, making our facility perfect for people who have jobs, school or a family to care for. We have an outpatient program that you can choose as a standalone option once you’ve completed a detox, and the biggest benefit of this outpatient program is that you can still live at home while you do it.
