AKUA Mind & Body Philosophy
At Akua Mind & Body, we combine treatment programs for the mind, body, and spirit into a holistic therapeutic method in beautiful Southern California. Blending clinical excellence with a healing and rejuvenating holistic environment, we have created treatment programs fusing the latest advances in addiction medicine with eastern traditions. Akua is unlike any hospital or residential treatment facility; it is a revitalizing retreat for those who need assistance in dealing with drug or alcohol addictions. Our integrative approach combines physical, psychological, spiritual, and science-based approaches to achieve not only detoxification and intensive treatment, but a solid foundation for healing and recovery. Our goal is for you to emerge from your stay at our high-end treatment facilities in Orange County with the tools you need to confront drug and alcohol dependency.

I felt so comfortable and understood. The staff are super supportive, loving, and knowledgeable. I was so sad to leave but I feel like they prepared me SO well for the next step in my recovery.- Katie B.
The staff were compassionate and accommodating to my specific treatment. The house was really nice and food was great too. Detoxing from pills can be rough, but I was fortunate and blessed for the experience. I give Akua Detox five stars because they changed my life and Dr. Miller understood what I was going through with love and compassion.- Roger S.
Also the house is super cool and big, sprawling ranch style with a pool and hot tub! and even though it is big they only have a max of 6 people so it never feels crowded. The staff was super helpful and really seemed to care about how we were doing and we got to go to a couple meetings unlike the previous detoxes I’ve been to where we were on lockdown.'- Kyle S.
