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
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.

ABOUT VALLEY RECOVERY CENTER
Located in the Santa Clarita community of Newhall, Calif., Valley Recovery Center provides residential treatment for adult men who are struggling with substance abuse, process addictions, and co-occurring mental health disorders. Medically monitored detox is offered on-site and, depending on their needs, clients may remain in treatment for 30, 60, or 90 days. The facility also offers customized aftercare services to program graduates.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon admission, clients receive an evaluation that includes a review of their medical history and their history of substance abuse. Valley Recovery Center staff use evaluation findings to create a personalized treatment plan.
Most clients begin their stay with a period of medically monitored detoxification, which is offered by about 16 percent of all California treatment facilities. Once stabilized, clients begin a tailored program designed to help them understand their addiction and take the necessary steps toward their recovery. Clients participate in a mix of one-on-one counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), group counseling, family therapy, and 12-step groups. The center’s alternative therapies and holistic offerings include drama and music therapy, animal therapy, yoga, and meditation. Residents are also encouraged to exercise outdoors, as the area affords plenty of space for hiking and running.
Valley Recovery Center offers a staff-to-client ratio of 2:1, according to information provided by the facility. The treatment team consists of psychiatrists, psychologists, licensed therapists, registered nutritionists, a doctorate-level life coach, a clinical hypnotherapist, a Reiki teacher, an acupuncturist, a social worker, and other healthcare professionals. The center is one of the 182 (13.9 percent) of California treatment centers accredited by The Joint Commission.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Valley Recovery Center provides residents with an upscale, intimate recovery setting. With a total capacity of six residents, the facility offers private rooms in a home that features an outdoor pool, Jacuzzi, backyard barbeque, and common areas furnished 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 restrictions and preferences.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Nearly a dozen alumni polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing provided glowing reviews of their experiences at Valley Recovery Center. They praised everything from the center’s “compassionate” staff and extensive group therapy options to its relaxed environment and “variety of meals.” “The vibe is laid back and very friendly but make no mistake about it this is the real deal. I had three different therapists that I worked with not only one on one but also in groups,” Dan wrote in a representative review.
The two survey respondents polled by Rehabs.com to date gave five out of five stars for the center’s counseling options, its treatment for co-occurring disorders, its holistic offerings, the program’s family participation, and the staff’s level of training and experience. When asked how likely they were to recommend the facility to others, both alumni submitted five-star ratings.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Similarly, the two loved ones surveyed at the time of this writing told Rehabs.com that they would recommend Valley Recovery Center to others. Both respondents submitted mostly four and five out of five star ratings in nearly all 15 evaluated categories, including the program’s family participation, the center’s cleanliness, and the staff’s level of training and experience. One respondent characterized the program as “structured” and “balanced,” and both loved ones were complimentary of the facility’s staff. “Treated him like family when he was there which motivated him to stay clean because as he stated before he never felt more love then when someone showed they cared for his treatment,” D.A. wrote in their review.
WHAT STAFF SAY
Each of the four staff members polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing noted that they would recommend Valley Recovery Center’s program.

Treatment for co-occurring disorders: 4.5/5 stars
However, one respondent highlighted a high rate of staff turnover as one of the center’s weaknesses.
Treatment at Valley Recovery Center costs $1,200 per day, $40,000 per month, and $100,000 for the 90-day program, according to information provided by the facility. The facility is one of the 734 (56 percent) of California treatment facilities to accept major private insurance companies, including Aetna, United Healthcare, Cigna, and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield. For eligible clients, financial assistance may cover up to 60 percent of the price of treatment.
