Located less than one mile from the beach in Encinitas, Calif., Sheridan Gardens offers one of the state's 197 (15 percent) inpatient, non-hospital detox programs for clients withdrawing from a range of drugs and alcohol. The facility notes that it provides medical-assisted detox therapies, but does not indicate whether these include Suboxone, methadone, or other medications.


The process begins with a comprehensive assessment, which is used to put together an individualized treatment plan. In the early stages of detox, the client focuses on rest and physical recovery. Clients are monitored 24 hours a day, and clinicians help to ensure the comfort and safety of each client.

Once physical stable, clients participate in group and individual counseling, as well as restorative yoga classes and music therapy. Sheridan Gardens aims to revitalize each client’s mind, body, and spirit. Drug screenings help ensure abstinence from substances during the treatment process.

Every client leaves with a comprehensive and personalized aftercare plan, including referrals to local residential and outpatient treatment centers, sober living facilities, as well as other resources to promote lasting recovery.


The on-site staff includes registered nurses, medical assistants, and licensed addiction counselors. A physician also visits the facility daily. Clients are supervised 24 hours a day by "experienced treatment professionals," as described by the facility. ,

With a strong focus on healthy nutrition, an on-site chef prepares healthy meals and strives to use locally sourced and organic ingredients.
