California Prime Recovery Philosophy
We have dedicated ourselves to providing an experience that not only provides the appropriate treatment in recovery from alcohol and substance abuse. We will also equip clients with the necessary tools to live life on life’s terms. We realize that many suffer from the same problem, but not everyone needs the same type of care. With our unique methods, we strive to focus on each client’s personal needs, giving each person who walks through our doors a highly individualized plan of action. Our highly trained staff coming from various professional backgrounds will be there each day building relationships to help clients recover and live a sober life.
Areas of Specialization
Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)
Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.
Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
Meet the Staff
Founder & CEO
I began my journey to recovery back in 2011 when I moved to California from New York. Along with my recovery and beginning a new way of life, I began to develop a heart for others struggling with sobriety. My journey to California was filled with many trials and lessons learned, but most of all, personal growth. I truly believe I would not have found success if I didn’t come to California.
I started CPR as a way to work with people in recovery on a daily basis and it evolved into something much more beautiful. I have also come to realize that my own personal happiness and recovery depends on being involved in the lives of people in recovery. Helping others recover is a cornerstone of many 12 step programs, as it is here. Giving back to those still suffering, is the only way not to lose what you have gained. It is the paradox that we live by every day.

ABOUT CALIFORNIA PRIME RECOVERY
Based in a commercial neighborhood in suburban Orange County's Fountain Valley, California Prime Recovery (CPR) offers outpatient treatment for men and women who are struggling with substance abuse. Most clients enter the program as step-down care from an inpatient or residential facility.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment is offered at three levels: day treatment, which provides six hours of care five days per week, intensive outpatient program (IOP), which provides three hours of care five days per week, and outpatient program (OP), which provides one hour of care typically twice per week.
CPR emphasizes that its programs are individualized to each client’s needs. Clients are introduced to the 12-Steps during treatment, and participate in individual and group therapy, process groups, life skills training, and holistic options such as yoga, fitness, and music sessions. CPR also takes advantage of its southern California setting, offering outings such as hiking, surfing, and paddle boarding trips, and indoor rock climbing sessions.
The program is split into three progressive phases, each with its own milestones. This approach enables both clients and staff to measure progress against goals. CPR’s website notes that its offerings include structured aftercare programs, but does not specify what these entail.
CPR employs a team of substance abuse professionals, The website shows a gallery of clinicians with LMFT (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy) degrees, a clinical director, founder/CEO, and support staff.
