Reclaim Your Life

Overcoming addiction is about reclaiming your life and making it better. Above It All Alcohol Recovery and Treatment Center’s alcohol & drug abuse rehab program in California provides the opportunity to achieve a level of wellness that few people experience.  We will be concerned about your physical and mental health, offering program options for those with chronic pain, PTSD or trauma.  We help you learn ways to better manage your life, while addressing co-occurring conditions such as anxiety, depression, or abuse. A Christian rehab center, we will support your spiritual development -- without imposing specific beliefs --to help you re-discover a sense of purpose.  Developing the skills that will help you manage stress, reduce conflict, and have happier relationships, is also part of our addiction treatment program.
Alcohol is the most commonly used and widely abused psychoactive drug in the world. It is a legal drug, while its consumption is regulated by the U.S. Government, you can buy and obtain alcohol at bars, restaurants, grocery stores, liquor stores, and even gas stations. Alcohol causes more harm to people than any drug of abuse, legal or illegal. Because it impairs judgment, alcohol is to blame for a multitude of car accidents, many of them fatal.

Law enforcement has cracked down on Driving Under the Influence with harsher penalties and laws enacted. Organizations have sprung up in response to the increase in drunk driving, the largest being Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). It is estimated that 75-80% of those incarcerated are in prison for committing a crime while under the influence.

A critical aspect of the recovery process is preparing for the next step -- living a better life that is drug and alcohol free.  Together we will develop a plan for the future, coordinating the support necessary to help you stay clean and sober.  In the months and years ahead we will be here to help, offer advice, support and encouragement as you journey forward. Above It All Treatment Center, we are here for you.
