About Woodglen Recovery Junction


Medical Detoxification

Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.


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.

Woodglen Recovery Junction is a nonprofit organization located in Fullerton, Calif., that’s dedicated to serving men and women struggling with substance and other issues. One of just 440 (33.6 percent) residential treatment programs in California, Woodglen has helped thousands of individuals and families since having first opened its doors more than 35 years ago. Today, in addition to its 60- to 90-day programs, the state-licensed center is also one of 197 (15.0 percent) centers in the state to provide medical detox services.


Treatment at Woodglen Recovery Junction is firmly rooted in the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and divided into four distinct phases. The center aims to go beyond the surface-level consequences of addiction by working with each client in addressing “underlying issues and myths that perpetuate the disease.”

Medical detoxification typically lasts five to seven days. This brief period helps clients begin healing physically with the support and monitoring from a 24-hour trained staff. Once stabilized, clients transition into Phase II for primary care, a 30- to 45-day intensive recovery curriculum that involves one-on-one counseling, group and family therapy, education on addiction, and 12-step meetings. There’s also time for recreation, spiritual guidance, and meditation.

Phase III is a 30- to 60-day period in which clients are expected to spend time mentoring new residents as they continue their own programming and search for employment. In the fourth and final phase, clients move into a less restrictive and structured living environment where the focus is on reintegrating into the community and receiving vocational assistance.


The clinical team at Woodglen Recovery Junction consists of licensed and master’s level counselors and therapist, a dietician, case managers, and recovery advisors, individuals with firsthand addiction recovery experience.


Woodglen is a two-story, historic home built in 1887. According to the center's website, clients can expect field trips and nutritional and fitness assessments.

“Life saver,” alum Bryan described the program on yet another positive report on Yelp.” “The staff here all care about the clients. They take you to an AA meeting everyday,” he added.


The sole staff member polled by Rehabs.com to date expressed was quite disappointed with their employer. “Not enough staff, pile more and more work on everyone so there is no time for the clients,” D.I. told Rehabs.com.

They gave just one out of five stars for the aftercare protocols and loyalty to clients, however, they also left five out of five stars for the staff’s level of training and experience and for their honesty.
