Who are we?

It is imperative to choose a recovery center that is licensed and accredited, that can demonstrate its effectiveness and success rate, and that offers some type of aftercare services. StepHouse Recovery has it all. Having been around for nearly a decade, we’ve developed a long-term and well-managed treatment model that assures you or your loved one and the best care when it comes to chemical detox and addiction recovery.

We are accredited by the Joint Commission, the “gold standard” in national accreditation for hospitals and treatment facilities, meeting the highest level of standards, in addition to years of experience and stability which adds to our reputation as one of the top Orange County Drug Rehab Facilities.

Our strength lies in our holistic approach and our complete understanding of all the challenges people suffering from drug and alcohol addiction go through. Therefore, we incorporate dual-diagnosis treatment for patients with co-occurring disorders (depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc.) that may accompany addiction.

StepHouse Recovery’s medical director has over 20 years of experience as a Board Certified Psychiatrist specializing in Addiction Treatment.

What do we offer?

We offer a full continuum of care at our institution. This means that our addiction treatment programs are wide-ranging, progressive, and specifically tailored to each client’s individual needs. Each level of care that we offer to build on one another for a more thorough and systematic approach to recovery. We follow the ASAM’s “five levels of care” philosophy and our programs are designed accordingly.

Our treatment programs are Detoxification, Residential Treatment Care (RTC), Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient. Combined, these services offer Comprehensive Long-Term Care specifically personalized for our patient’s focus and requirements. Additionally, we offer a number of services that are not included in our five programs. These include but are not limited to intervention assistance, alternative sentencing, and aftercare.

Why should you choose us as your treatment provider?

StepHouse Recovery has a long history of building strategic, customizable and insight-driven treatment programs that maximize efficiency and results for our client’s recovery, and several factors set us apart from other treatment facilities. We highlight below some of the things we believe make us different, making us uniquely equipped to help our clients/patients on their path to long-lasting sobriety.

Our treatment model is centered around five essential program pillars: StepHouse Recovery’s treatment model is centered around five program pillars (accountability, responsibility, health, mindset, and discipline). Each pillar is consistently identified throughout all of our programs and will apply to each patient’s care no matter what level of treatment they require. The five pillars are used to help instill a positive treatment climate for clients, making our center a safe environment for patients to recover and transition back into society. Additionally, our pillars function as a measuring stick to ensure the effectiveness of our programs.
• Accountability: regardless of program, we offer a team of professional and supportive individuals surrounding the patient as they progress through their recovery and addiction treatment programming. Additionally, we hold our patients accountable for their progress by creating a structured environment and by allocating penalties and consequences for patients not accepting their responsibilities.
• Responsibility: we aim to help our patients develop a sense of self-worth and dignity through responsibilities and structured routines that are geared toward the acquisition of life skills.
• Health: we teach patients to be responsible for their health and hygiene, by offering them basic education of nutritional, physical and mental concepts and values.
• Mindset: we help patients gain acceptance of their condition, by helping them understand the underlying factors of their addiction and identifying their weaknesses and their strengths.
• Discipline: patients are taught discipline through activities, responsibilities, and exercises geared toward the development or improvement of skills.

We offer high-quality addiction treatment for competitive prices: Our main goal is long-lasting sobriety and customer satisfaction, which we obtain through market orientation and the allocation of continuing addiction services and support. We offer many different pricing plans to suit our patients’ needs and treatment requirements in order to help visitors find the treatment facility that is the best fit for them and their wallet.

We specialize in treating dual diagnosis and co-occurring disorders: A dual diagnosis – otherwise known as a co-occurring disorder – is one of the most specialized and complex areas of addiction treatment. StepHouse Recovery specializes in treating co-occurring disorders by offering a recovery program that treats both the chemical dependency and psychological disorder.

The benefits of our co-occurring disorders (dual diagnosis) recovery program is that it offers the same level of care and attention to both the addictive disorder and co-occurring illness, addressing both as chronic, relapsing conditions that require long-term support.

We focus on long-term comprehensive care: Here at StepHouse Recovery, we believe that long-lasting recovery starts with long-term comprehensive care. We, therefore, offer a full continuum of care at our institution. This means that our addiction treatment programs are wide-ranging, progressive, and specifically tailored to each client’s individual needs. Each level of care that we offer builds on one another for a more thorough and systematic approach to recovery.

Discretion in treatment: Confidentiality is a necessary element in the process of recovery, both inside the organization and outside. StepHouse Recovery takes a holistic approach to addiction and mental health treatment, while also supporting the proven 12-step program. Intrinsic to this program is the idea that it is anonymous. Our discretion and focus on anonymity protects the members’ privacy in their pursuit of sobriety and ensures that everyone in the meeting is treated as being of equal value.

Our Intensive Outpatient Programs Center/Corporate Office is located in Fountain Valley at 10529 Slater Avenue, Fountain Valley, CA 92683.
In addition to our IOP Center and Administrations Office, StepHouse Recovery offers a number of Detox Centers as well as residential program facilities or sober living homes. Residential facilities or sober living homes are an integral part of the recovery journey and a proven investment when it comes to maintaining the longevity of abstinence.
All of our residential sober living Orange County homes are gender-specific, modern and spacious, and feature a wide array of amenities and activities for round-the-clock care and support.

What is our philosophy?
Our goal is to individualize behavioral plans along with recovery-based treatment plans to assist our clients in achieving their desired goals in sobriety and in everyday life. We strive to create a positive environment that encourages optimism and instills a comfortable feeling of progress. We provide a platform on which patients can open up and improve their long-term recovery.

Our hope is to teach each client how to break their substance abuse cycle so they can make conscious choices to walk a different path and lead a more productive, healthy lifestyle.

It is our objective that while in treatment, StepHouse Recovery clients will experience a healthy, supportive, and structured where clients can embrace sobriety and re-create their lives, halt the process of addiction, improve life skills and reclaim a sense of self-worth. We work with clients, one by one, to improve their self-awareness, and heighten their understanding of what triggers their addiction.
It is the goal of StepHouse Recovery and the clinical team to ensure that treatment services provided meet or exceed national industry standards and that the treatment milieu is a safe environment for clients to address their chemical or behavioral dependency.
