Valley Recovery Center Philosophy
Valley Recovery Center provides personalized treatment for men with addictions to alcohol, drugs, gambling, and more. We strive to provide our patients with a supportive environment and community, which comes naturally to us because we are family owned and operated. We also see how crucial it is for loved ones and families to be part of our patient’s recovery, because they are a vital part of the support system that those in recovery need to be able to turn to for help. When patients come to Valley Recovery Center, they see that they are part of a community dedicated to helping them achieve recovery.
In order for the treatment we provide to truly work, patients must be receptive to it and feel that it addresses their individual needs. We offer a variety of programs to meet those needs, including those with a spiritual focus, those that deal with patients’ behaviors and triggers, and 12-step programs. Patients will progress through these programs at their own pace, but the environment and treatment we provide is structured to ensure that they make progress. The treatment we provide is aimed at allowing clients to find the programs that really address their addiction experience and personal issues, and offering them a community that provides support and encouragement along the way.
Of course, treatment is only part of the recovery process. Our patients will need to return to their lives and be able to handle the challenges life throws at them while maintaining their sobriety. To help them with this, we offer programs that encourage them to develop life skills like applying to schools, building resumes, and more. We also offer many aftercare services that will provide them with support and care long after their residential treatment has ended.
Areas of Specialization
Creative Arts Therapy
Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.
Client & Family Support Groups
Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

ABOUT VALLEY RECOVERY CENTER
Valley Recovery Center is a residential rehab center for adult males located in the foothills of Newhall, Santa Clarita, Calif. only 25 miles northwest of Hollywood. Depending on their needs, men with co-occurring mental health, substance abuse, and gambling disorders have access to different levels of residential treatment. Medically monitored detox is available on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Many clients begin their healing process with the facility’s on-site detox. Far from a one-size-fits-all approach, treatment plans are designed according to intensity and length. A short-term, 30-day program is ideal for those who aren’t heavily addicted, but still need thorough treatment in a limited amount of time, while the more extensive 60- and 90-day programs focus on psychological healing to ensure a client’s continued recovery beyond the walls of rehab.
Taking a comprehensive approach to recovery, treatment plans blend 12-step programming with evidence-based approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). In addition to one-on-one counseling and group therapies, residents are supported through non-traditional and holistic methods such as life coaching, yoga, equine therapy, massage therapy, music and art therapy, and Reiki, a stress reduction technique. Men are also encouraged to exercise outdoors, as the area affords plenty of space for hiking and running.
Family participation is encouraged throughout the recovery process and clients also have access to aftercare programs.
Valley Recovery Center boasts a staff-to-client ratio of 2:1. The treatment team consists of licensed therapists, registered nutritionists, a doctorate level life coach, a clinical hypnotherapist, a Reiki teacher, a social worker, and other professionals.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Valley Recovery Center provides residents with an upscale, intimate recovery setting. With capacity limited to six at a time, men are housed in private rooms in a home that features an outdoor pool, Jacuzzi, backyard barbeque, and community areas with leather couches and fireplaces. The house is also pet friendly, and smoking is permitted in designated areas. A chef prepares meals daily and caters to clients who have dietary preferences.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Most of the former clients polled to date wrote fondly of their experiences, with 11 ratings averaging 4.55 out of five stars for treatment effectiveness. Brandon, for example, gave the facility five-star ratings across the board, and wrote: “My time at VRC was filled with learning experiences about myself, addiction, and the 12-step program. I left with a new lease on life and with hope for the future. Thank you VRC!” Additionally, K.D.L. added that he enjoyed the holistic therapies and wrote: “These groups made me feel like it was okay, and that i was safe to disclose trauma that occured in my life.”
One reviewer did leave a negative comment: “Couldn't finish the treatment,” but an official facility response claimed that the post is an attempt to hurt business.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Similarly, two loved ones to date shared positive experiences and program highlights with Rehabs.com. Reviewer L.K. noted the structure, strong support system, and great management as facility strengths, claiming that the facility “will save your life.” And Shawn found favor in the personalized attention. “We couldnt have asked for a better community and service,” he wrote. “Really Great Team!!”
WHAT STAFF SAY
At the time of this writing, four staff members all said they would recommend the facility. They also applauded Valley Recovery Center for its level of cleanliness, strong support, and individualized attention.
One staffer, Lauren, however, noted the facility’s frequent schedule changes, and high staff turnover as program weaknesses.
Treatment costs $1,200 per day, $40,000 per month, and $100,000 for the 90-day program. Valley Recovery Center works with major private insurers, including Aetna, United Healthcare, Health Net, Cigna, and Blue Cross Blue Shield. For eligible clients, financial assistance packages may cover up to 60 percent of the price of treatment.
