About the Facility
Tree House Recovery chemical dependency treatment center offers Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient and Aftercare to Men. Tree House Recovery's unique approach to chemical dependency treatment focuses on the mind/body connection to build sustainable, healthy lives. Because we believe that simply removing substances is not enough, we equip clients with the skills and knowledge needed to live lasting, healthy, and fulfilling lives.
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.
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

ABOUT TREE HOUSE RECOVERY FOR MEN
Tree House Recovery, located in Costa Mesa, Calif., treats adult men struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders through sober living, a partial hospitalization program (PHP), intensive outpatient program (IOP), outpatient program (OP), and aftercare programs. Detox is not offered at Tree House Recovery which, in the state, is among 11.7 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities accredited by The Joint Commission.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment for chemical dependency at Tree House Recovery focuses on the mind and body connection. More than simply removing addictive substances, the program helps clients acquire knowledge and practice making healthy, fulfilling life choices through eight evidence-based interconnected modalities.
Through a daily, holistic combination of activities and therapies, clients build balanced physical and psychological strength. They participate in yoga and group exercise sessions, judgment-free writing sessions, addiction education, cognitive behavioral therapy, 12-step practices, and individual counseling. Other components include experiential therapies such as drills on surf passage boats; fitness therapy such as weight lifting; and Recovery In Action, a program that trains clients for triathlons and spartan races.
Survey feedback sourced from alumni by Rehabs.com suggests the program lasts from four to six months. PHP clients participate in therapy five days a week for a minimum of six hours a day, following individualized treatment plans. In some cases, clients may "step-down" through the various treatment intensities to follow a comprehensive continuum of care.
The multidisciplinary team includes addiction counselors and fitness, yoga, experiential, and writing therapists. The staff-to-client ratio is 5:8. Staff members include military veterans, individuals in recovery with years of sobriety, and therapists with bachelor's and master's degrees in counseling psychology. To date, the 17 individuals polled on the matter by Rehabs.com praised the aptitude of staff.

CharlesIt was absolutely amazing, I made friends for life including staff members.
RCTree House is a great place to go to if you struggle with addiction and are truly looking to get sober. The majority of the staff are in recovery themselves and truly care about everyone in the program. It is not for the faint of heart and will challenge you daily both mentally and physically, but that is what you need in order to combat life when you return home. Living conditions are not luxurious, but rehabilitation is not about comfort. You shouldn't want to go to rehab. Overall I would highly recommend Tree House to anyone looking to get sober.
ChrisThere is no addiction recovery program quite like Treehouse Recovery! As an employee, I have had the pleasure of witnessing many clients gain their sobriety and a happy, healthy life to go with it. It is all centered around treating the whole body. This means the clients go through daily activities to help build them up mentally, physically, and spiritually. The staff truly care about its clients and give everyone the love and support they need to get healthy. If I had any family or friends suffering from addiction, this is the program I would suggest they go to.
Richard FTreehouse is a special and unique treatment center that is a breath of fresh air in addiction and substance abuse treatment. Even though I did not attend Treehouse myself, after seeing my fellow friends and brothers go through the program I can assuredly say that it’s approach, treatment process, and unequivocal dedication to their patients is unmatched. I’ve worked at many treatment centers and not one of them provided the level of care, support, education, or overall success that Treehouse does. If I had a family member, loved one, or friend struggling with addiction, Treehouse would be my 1st choice.
CindyNearly 3 years ago we found ourselves searching for a rehab that could help us with our son’s addiction. He had already been in 2 rehabs at this point. We were so despondent about the affect this was having on him, the emotional and financial toll it was taking on our family and the lack of “adequate” available help. I knew he needed something longer than a 1 month or 45day program and so, yet again, I began my search online. This time, I googled something along the lines of “long term addiction recovery rehabs” and found Tree House Recovery. I will forever be grateful for that day as I am convinced that this program literally saved my son’s life! I have searched hundreds of recovery websites over the years. When I initially clicked on the Tree House Recovery website I was immediately impressed by its 5 star rating. As I looked further into the website, I was intrigued. It was a “men only” program which was a plus for me as I had hoped this would offer less distractions. In addition, Tree House Recovery seemed to offer more than most places in the way of counseling. The physical aspect, under the direction of a Navy SEAL was impressive along with addiction education classes. I called and spoke with the intake person. He was so helpful and answered all my questions and concerns. We live on the east coast and I was a little uncertain about sending my son across the other side of the country, however, something told me this was the place he needed to be. A short time later, he was on a plane to California. He was met at the airport by a Tree House Recovery associate and the rest is history! I am so happy to say that next month my son will be 3 years drug and alcohol free! I know my son did the work he needed to do. He gave it 110%, (to include a Spartan race and triathlon,) and I know the healing process was difficult. However, the support and overall quality of care he received at Tree House Recovery was unsurpassed and the life skills this facility gave my son are so invaluable that it’s difficult to put it all on paper. I will be forever grateful to his individual therapist and writing therapist. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! The physical fitness aspect of the program is amazing. My son had played sports all through school, however, had never been near the physical shape he was in when he finished the program. The entire staff are in a league of their own and the program is like no other! The person my son is today is so much more than I could have ever imagined (physically, spiritually and emotionally!) He knows how to have fun and enjoy life without drugs and/or alcohol. His reasoning and decision making are on point. He has focus, plans and dreams. I trust him and I trust when he says he’s going to do something he means it. THE NEGATIVE THINKING IS GONE! Today, he is the happy, confident, person I remembered so many years ago. I am so incredibly thankful to have my son back and I am forever grateful to Tree House Recovery for being the catalyst to making that our reality. To anyone searching for help for their loved one, particularly where other rehabs have failed, I can say with certainty that you would not be disappointed with Tree House Recovery. It is a program like no other and I cannot say THANK YOU enough! I thank God and Tree House literally every day! Cindy Moulton
CHTree House Recovery saved my son’s life. If he had not found Tree House and the courage to contact them, I truly believe he would not be alive today. As a mother, that is your worst fear. My son was made to face the reasons for his life’s bad choices and most importantly, he was shown how to handle life’s problems without turning to drugs and alcohol. Tree House not only treats the addiction, they also treat any underlying problems such as depression, trauma, anxiety, etc. It has been over five years of sobriety for my son. He is leading a healthy and happy life. For that, I will be forever grateful for Tree House Recovery. If you have a son, family member or friend that needs help, please contact Tree House Recovery. He will not regret it. Don’t wait, it will be his new beginning.
Cobi10/5 stars for Treehouse recovery. They teach you everything you need to know to battle addiction from within, you Learn about the brain, and get down to the core roots of why you used to begin with. But they do more than just teach you how to live sober, they teach you how to live. They teach you how to be a man and what that means along with everything that goes with that. I went from a scared little boy to an empowered young man thanks to Treehouse recovery. If you truely want to get sober then Treehouse recovery is the spot for you. This is the best treatment center in America. You will gain connections with other men that will last a lifetime. You will also have the most fun you’ve had in years if not ever. If you need help don’t hesitate to call them. They saved my life and turned it around completely 180 degrees and they will do the same for you.
DCTree House saved my life. Treatment at THR is not easy but that's exactly what I needed. Life isn't easy. If you go to one of the many cushy treatment centers you're basically going to a resort -- most alcoholic/addicts lives don't involve the option to get a massage everyday for free. That's not real life, and that experience wasn't going to help me. At Tree House you hit the ground running required to attend all modalities no matter what. Just like in real life, you can't always take a 'sick day’. You are challenged physically on the beach and physically in the gym. You are challenged mentally, you are required to learn all about how addiction works both biologically and psychologically so you understand what is going on with you. Your therapists do not coddle you, they say it like it is, good or bad. The therapists will push you mentally, they will help you resolve all your past traumas and correct inherently illogical belief systems Tree House provides you with gift cards for a grocery store. You will be required to live on a budget, purchase and cook your own food, and just like in real life you will not be able to go out for every meal or have each meal prepared for you. You will live in close proximity to other clients — which will challenge you to continue growing. Treatment should not be about “getting sober”, that’s easy. It’s about learning to LIVE sober and truly LOVE life sober that requires the structure that Tree House provides. All of the challenges you face will turn your life around. All the fun you will have and the true friends you will make will lead you to the life you always deserved.
AGTree House was a program with knowledgable therapists and counselors. Most are in recovery themselves. I felt welcomed and understood from the beginning. It's a structured program that was well worth the time spent. Very team oriented which was very important for me.
ABStrengths: -Team building -One-on-one care -Loving staff -Physical aspects -Wide variety of modalities -Length of treatment -Amazing people (staff and clients) -Awesome community events that we participate in -Location(5 minutes from the beach) -Staff that is also in recovery Weaknesses: -Because it is men's only, women don't have access to this amazing program -Because of the facilities policy on medication, many people with serious dual-diagnoses, (bi-polar 2, schizophrenia) can't come here Tree House provided me with the perfect recipe for healthy, happy living. This includes all the tools I need to remain sober as well as great things for me to do on a daily basis to achieve health and happiness. I took the same drive I had towards acquiring my drug of choice and have applied it to bettering my life. I work-out, eat healthy, take direction, and develop lasting loving relationships with other guys in the program. Tree House taught me how to love myself so I can spread that same love out into the world.
BFGreat fellowship, physically stimulating, schedule and routine oriented Poor housing/accommodations. Another weakness is that something is always broken (microwave, washer, dryer, etc.) Overall a great treatment center that I recommend. Only things lacking are poor housing and poor upkeep of houses
WilliamThis place saved my life! I would recommend this place to anyone who is serious and willing enough to do whatever it takes to get better!
MSDrug addiction education, health and fitness, One on one therapy, team building, relapse prevention tools, after care planning and encouragement and support. Treehouse gave me my life back. The treatment team showed me a new way of living and how to be a productive member society. They help me understand my addiction. By watching everyone that had previously gone through the program and what they were doing with their lives it gave me hope and inspiration. They devised a treatment plan that was for me. When I left treatment I was prepared. I owe my new life treehouse! without them I wouldn't of been able to see or fulfill my potential.
JWIncredible staff who are knowledgeable and deeply devoted to the work they do. The treatment incudes holistic options such a yoga and meditation, physical exercise, 12 step meetings, addiction education and team building exercises. The length of treatment usually lasts between 4-6 months which helps created a stronger base of sobriety. Housing could be better maintained. Before coming to Tree House Recovery I had been through 12 previous treatment centers of varies types and lengths of stay without ever being able to achieve any real sobriety time. THR was the exact mix of holistic and physical activity, individual therapy, addiction education and 12 step ideology that I needed. I was not babied or pampered like I experienced at some other rehab facilities but instead was encouraged to make the changes within myself.
RHOur son was in 5 rehabs before THR. It is their approach to addiction from writing assignments and physical fitness aspect of the program, dove-tailed with their dedicated staff that was the key to open the door of sobriety for our son. We always knew there was a wonderful man inside wanting so desperately to break the chains of addiction that binded him. THR gave him the education, tools and physical well-being to be the sober man he is today. This is a stellar rehab!
RMConnection, community, love, care, intelligence, understanding people. Never experienced anything I didn't think was effective. Nothing comes to mind when I think of weakness. I have to start with just beautiful. Tree House picked me up and showed me life again, the true meaning of life. We each have a different understanding of that but because of the work we put it on ourselves I was able to shape my life the way I wanted and everyday I wake up with understanding and STILL in awe that's it's true. The life I live is beautiful today and the depth of what we learn in Tree House is what helped me get there. The emotion behind my words are powerful, this is where change is.. Tree House saved my life and Its unique. I'd recommend it to anyone who wanted full transformation and a new beginning.
GNCStrengths: Staff is always there for you and very helpful and understanding. Weaknesses: You have to cook. They help you control your mind and body, to become a healthier better you. Something no other places can offer, its one of a kind
JHStrengths: Amazing staff, amazing program, beutiful place, once in a life time experience. Weaknesses: few and far between, a better nutrition program. If you have tried other "treatments" and are ready to explore an option that will push you mentally, physically and spiritually then Tree House is the way to go. It was completely different then anything I have ever experienced
W.B.Great staff who are knowledgeable and have a clear understanding of recovery, curriculum is easy to understand and apply, organized and well put together program. Physically demanding program, that would be challenging for someone with severe physical limitations. Tree House Recovery helped me change my life. I have never met staff at a treatment facility that care as much as those who work for Tree House Recovery. They genuinely want me to succeed and will go out of their way to help me however they can. In this program I learned how to live a happy and a healthy life without the use of drugs or alcohol. I cannot thank Tree House Recovery enough for the amazing life that I live today. I have over 20 months clean from all drugs and alcohol, I am working at a great job, have my family back in my life. I have been to numerous other treatment programs but am glad that I finally found one that worked for me.
BrettTreehouse has numerous therapy approaches that each any individual in different ways. The staff is loving, supportive, educated and treats you with respect. Each person will be challenged physically, mentally and spiritually. The program will be challenging but well worth it if you put forth the effort. This treatment center is action based holistic in nature and teaches you more that just staying sober. Tree house is taught me how to have fun again. They help recondition my thinking and taught me how to live a happy healthy lifestyle that i have always wanted.
EricStrengths: Teamwork. Building self supporting men. Physical activity. Holistic approach to sobriety. Weaknesses: Can be hard for some types of people. Treehouse saved my life. It is a place that helped me regain my center and become a better man. I owe the staff and my fellow iop members a great deal for being supportive and helping push me to get my life back together. I would recommend any man that has drug or alcohol problems to give this program an honest chance it will change your outlook on life.
ChristinaI recommend Treehouse highly, that's because my loved one has had the very best experience there, sobriety after some very expensive and "good" as in traditional ones (Caron and Cottonwood for example). Leadership of Treehouse are very good because they're listeners, and adaptors, with family members, and addicts I believe. They manage expectations, and really embody respect for sober living. Some of their treatment can seem dogmatic (from what I hear, not my own experience) but again, I think this is something that the addicts and residents there want. While they respect 12-step work as a method of sobriety that works for some it is not wholly structured around it. They feel personal health, community role and other aspects are just as important. I highly recommend talking to them when choosing rehabs, I'm so glad we did and our loved one is sober at 1.5 years. Yes, major gratitude.
RobertTree House is a place that truly helps men find their potential. As a staff member, I have seen countless clients grow into amazing and healthy men. I am grateful to be a part of THR and can say that our center profoundly changes lives. The interconnectedness of staff and treatment modalities results in an unparalleled level of effectiveness. At Tree House, each client gets an extraordinary level of attention and care due to the way the modalities and staff work in unison to understand and treat each man based on his individual needs. Tree House clients finish treatment with more than the ability to be sober; clients are shown how to love being sober while living empowered fulfilling lives.
RyanIf you want to get well, and truly change your life, this is the place you want to go. I've never seen anything like it. The reason I'm still alive and thriving is because of Tree House Recovery and the staff. Admittedly, this program is challenging and has a certain set of standards that addicts/alcoholics are not used to and have grown away from, but that's part of the reason it is so effective. If you genuinely want to change, embrace this program and give it all you have...you will not regret. Multi-faceted "one-of-a-kind" approach. Staff team is of the highest quality. The results of this program are unparalleled. Hard to pinpoint weaknesses when this place saved my life and I was lucky to be able to go there.
RyanStaff and unique approach to treatment. Tree house recovery saves lives. I diffently couldn't have landed in a better spot.
BGKnowledgable and Highly Trained Staff. Focuses on mind/body connection to build healthy lives. Offers Addiction Education as well as Literary Therapy Program. High level of care throughout whole program. As an employee I believe that our program offers the highest level of care. We are consistently focused on improving and developing new ways to continue to offer the highest level of care. In my 8 years experience in this field I have yet to see any other program offer such a high level of care with such a high success rate. Our program is truly like no other focusing on long term sobriety as well as healing the mind and body to promote healthy living.
DavidThe program was unique in its appeal to our son, its way of connecting with him and disarming all the defenses he was so good as deploying. He wouldn't be with us today but for the help we received through Treehouse.
R.F.A great treatment center. Truly changed my life.
MBMy son was a several previous rehabs, but Tree House has given him 20 months of sobriety and counting. Young energetic staff and physical fitness are strengths of Tree House.
