Centre Description

Over the past 20 years, Yellowstone Recovery has provided affordable alcohol and drug rehab programs in Southern California to over 5,000 men and women. Our drug rehab centers are located in beautiful Orange County which is at the heart of Southern California; there are few places on earth better to escape the grasps of addiction than in the endless sunshine along the Pacific Coast. We recognize how inescapable the downward spiral of addiction can feel and work tirelessly to offer freedom for our clients.

We help clients break free from addiction to:

  • Alcohol
  • Street Drugs – Heroin, Marijuana, Methamphetamine & Cocaine
  • Designer Drugs  Ecstasy, Spice & Bath Salts
  • Prescription Pills  Vicodin, Xanax, Valium & Klonopin

At Yellowstone Recovery southern california drug and rehab center, we offer a complete continuum of care to our clients beginning with detoxification where our clients focus on recovering from the physical aspect of addiction. The detox process can take up to 10 days depending on the severity of the client’s physical dependency. Next, our clients move into primary residential treatment where they work on the mental aspects of their addiction. After primary care, our clients will transition to extended care which focuses on re-entry into society. Many treatment centers discharge at this point (after inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is over), but Yellowstone emphasizes the importance of ongoing support. Once our clients have completed 90 days in residential drug rehab treatment in rehabilitation center Southern California they are able to move into one of our sober living facilities where they can continue to receive assistance by attending our outpatient treatment aftercare.


Experiential Therapy is a category of practices that encourages patients to re-condition their minds through activities and, well, experiences. Our clients are given the opportunity to role play and act out what they are feeling. We strive to teach new coping tactics so that negative emotions aren’t so overwhelming. But we also have fun! We work on building trust and maintaining relationships with group activities such as softball and camping trips. We demonstrate that there are a multitude of positive ways for our clients to spend their time. One of the biggest challenges addicts face upon re-entry is not knowing what to do with their “down-time”. Our clients are presented with new ways to spend these hours during the day and encouraged to develop hobbies and friendships with their peers.


Clients attending our drug rehab program in Orange County receive counseling within a group setting on a daily basis. These sessions consist of regular check in’s, process groups and educational groups. Topics for these groups and discussions include, but are not limited to, relapse prevention, triggers, anger management, art therapy, music therapy, and the family afterward. Our full alcohol & drug detox program curriculum can be found here. Our alcohol & drug detox program curriculum is truly comprehensive and professional. Each group is run by a trained counselor and each client’s input is encouraged and valued. Understanding the sharing process at a group level is pivotal in the sobriety of an alcoholic reminding them they are not alone and learning to rely on the recovery community. For more information regarding group alcohol & drug treatment in Southern California. Please contact our intake and admissions office at (888) 897-1455.


Each client will participate in at least one individual session each week with their case manager. Each session is designed for the client to feel free to share about not only their addiction but other co-occurring issues that were a result of their drinking and drug use. Within the safety of these sessions individuals will explore the options of what a new life in recovery looks like, how to cope with stressful life situations and willingness to get down to the causes and conditions of each individuals addiction. Their individual alcohol & drug treatment counseling sessions in Yellowstone Orange County will teach the client about the value of routine, effective communication and how to process feelings in a safe, non-impulsive manner.


Many alcoholics and addicts face the dilemma of being unemployed. We value the necessity of being self-supportive in all our endeavors and start the process after day 30. The first step on job search is to secure each individual in a sober, solid group of peers to assist them in the employment finding process. We encourage the value of a “get well” job and work with many local businesses in Orange County, CA on job placement. Our clients learn such basics as; resume writing, mock interviews, learning to use public transportation and ethics in the work place. To learn more about our job placement program in Orange County, California call today and speak with one of our intake specialists at (888) 897-1455.


When it’s all too much, Yellowstone Recovery can help.

Our California alcohol and drug addiction treatment program is predicated on restoring you to your ideal health. Detox is a crucial part of our drug and alcohol recovery programs because it helps our clients to work first on the physical aspects of addiction and provides them with a firm foundation for effectively dealing with related issues going forward. This is the first phase of the drug rehab program. Our trained staff is always standing by ensuring clients remain comfortable during the detox process.

Upon intake at our CA drug rehab center, each client undergoes a full bio-psycho-social assessment. This part of the drug rehab process allows us to find out the substances and amounts the client used prior to entering detox. It also enables us to identify the core issues that are most likely to interfere with recovery. Mental health issues may also be identified through this assessment. After the clients are assessed, individualized drug treatment programs can be developed to bring about and maintain the stabilization of each client’s physical detox and to support his or her ongoing recovery.

Primary Care – Residential Treatment

The first phase of our program is primary care. During this phase clients will be in a 30-day “blackout” period where they will not be allowed contact with anyone outside of the program. The purpose of the blackout period is twofold; blackout gives the clients time to work on themselves without worrying about what is going on outside the program and it also gives the families of the clients a chance to rest easy knowing that their loved one is in a safe place and they won’t be getting “that call.” Although clients are not allowed to contact anyone outside the facility they can agree to let people outside the facility contact staff for progress updates while they remain in primary care.

Primary Care Treatment

Primary care introduces clients to the 12-step programs of recovery and addiction counseling. Clients will attend 12-step meetings on a nightly basis with their house while under the supervision of their house manager and other staff members. During the week (Monday – Friday) clients will attend Day Treatment from 9am-3pm where they will attend group and individual session. Lunch is provided for all clients during the lunch hour at 11am.

Residential Treatment – Extended Care

Residential treatment extended care starts on day 31 and goes through day 90. This period is very important for a client in early recovery. This is when they prove they can use the tools they learned in primary care. They show they can be accountable, take direction and work a program of recovery.

The client has complete the first 30 days of residential treatment. They have attended daily groups and 12-step meetings. They have gotten a sponsor and started working the 12 steps. They are armed with facts about the disease of alcoholism and addiction and what to do about it. They have completed a relapse prevention plan and identified triggers and developed coping skills.

The client has shown they are now ready to move on to the next phase of residential treatment, extended care.

Residential Treatment & Job Search

The secondary focus of this phase of residential treatment behind continuing to work a 12 step program is finding employment. This prepares the client to be self-supporting once they have finished their 90 days in residential treatment.

Outpatient Treatment for Drugs and Alcohol

Outpatient treatment serves as aftercare for clients who have completed extended care (90 days of residential treatment). Clients in outpatient treatment are required to attend 3 groups sessions each week. Clients will also be required to attend an individual session every other week. This session is to turn in assignments and complete objectives on their treatment plan. Participation in 12-step recovery is also a requirement for outpatient treatment. Each client must attend at least 4 meetings per week and be actively working the 12-steps with a sponsor.

Outpatient Treatment Group and Individual Sessions

All group and individual sessions are facilitated by certified drug and alcohol counselors. Each session takes place in the evening. This allows clients to work during the day so they can be fully self-supporting. The group sessions are aimed at processing daily living. Other members of the group can provide feedback on what has worked for them in similar situations. Individual sessions are set to help each individual continue to work on core issues that affect recovery. These core issue were identified while in residential treatment.

Sober Living

Sober living at Yellowstone begins after the initial residential treatment portion of the program is successfully completed. Within the structure of sober living each client is equipped to effectively integrate their sober foundation with real life fundamentals. Each house is managed by a full time house manager and the purpose of each house is to offer client’s the practical support of living on their own sober.

Sober Living Structure

Sober living has a reasonable curfew, 12-step support and an accountability system. We believe in the value of action in recovery and each house has simple chores, rules, and responsibilities that foster growth in the individual. It is expected that each client be self-supporting and we ensure the provision of the proper tools as transition shifts from treatment to employment. We offer outpatient treatment as a form of continuing education and structure to aid in the client’s sobriety.
