Areas of Specialization

  • 12-Step
    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

  • Residential Treatment
    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

Review by Rehabs.com Contributors


Located in downtown Antioch in the East Bay region of Northern California, J. Cole Recovery Homes, Inc., offers long-term residential treatment and sober living facilities for men who struggle with substance use disorders. The minimum three-month program is part of the approximately one-third of California’s 1,311 total treatment facilities to provide residential care for greater than 30 days. Treatment is based in 12-step concepts, group therapy, and education. Services are offered to private clients as well as clients involved in the criminal justice system. Detox services are not provided.


Clients begin treatment at J. Cole Recovery Homes, Inc., with a comprehensive assessment and a seven-day acclimation process. During this period, men receive a physical and work with counselors to develop individualized care plans. Programming typically lasts between 90 and 180 days.

Programming emphasizes structure, according to the Cole Homes website. Process and educational groups are scheduled throughout the day, addressing relapse prevention and life skills development. The center also notes that it offers individual counseling; however, the sole alum polled by Rehabs.com to date noted that he did not receive this service.

This facility is among the 46.1 percent of California facilities that provide vocational counseling and training. Topics also include money management, literacy, and parenting. Residents participate in Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) sessions.

Clients undergo random drug and alcohol testing and weekly progress reports are provided for clients who are on parole or probation. The facility also coordinates medical care for residents through Contra Costa County Healthcare.

Following completion of the main residential treatment program, clients may choose to enter a transitional sober living facility operated by J. Cole Recovery Homes.

According to CiteHealth, some services are available in Spanish.


J. Cole Recovery Homes, Inc., has a staff-to-client ratio of 1:4, according to the facility’s website, and many staff members are themselves in recovery. The rehab center is also accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). In the U.S., only 20 percent of addiction treatment facilities hold this credential.


The J. Cole Recovery Homes website notes that the program aims for a “family-like environment.” Located in two adjacent homes, the facilities have a total capacity of 16 beds, well below the 30-bed average in California’s 438 non-hospital residential rehabs. Bedrooms are shared between two or four men.

Residents can expect to participate in house chores, including preparing meals, presented as integral parts of the recovery program. Visitation is on weekends, and clients have access to public transportation, although no personal vehicles are allowed.


The single alum polled to date by Rehabs.com, Steven, would recommend the center. He gave five out of five stars for most metrics measuring treatment and accommodations at J. Cole Recovery Homes. In addition to positive feedback for meals and nutrition, Steven indicated strong satisfaction with the facility’s cleanliness and upkeep, connectivity policies related to outside communication, and exercise and leisure activities.

The alum reported success in multiple areas, including continued sobriety, pursuing a college education, and plans to join the facility staff as a counselor."


There is currently no information provided on the facility's website regarding its costs; however, the single alum polled by Rehabs.com to date indicated that treatment was worth the cost. CiteHealth also reported that private insurance is accepted by J. Cole Recovery Homes.
