Our Philosophy

We are entirely dedicated to helping you find success in your recovery journey. Our treatment philosophy incorporates elements we believe will help you experience lasting sobriety.

Our Motto: Recovery Means Life

At The Camp, we live by the motto “recovery means life,” meaning that through successful recovery, individuals who participate in our program can not only regain their lives but also learn how to truly appreciate and enjoy them on a regular basis. In order to help bring about this type of lifestyle change, we incorporate numerous different forms of treatment into our program that help achieve this program-wide philosophy, including:

Holistic Care

We approach the treatment of substance abuse with respect and compassion and maintain a strong emphasis on each client’s physical, mental, emotional, and overall spiritual health.

Family Involvement

We believe that family plays a pivotal role in successful recovery, therefore we offer three-day intensive family weekends that provide education on addiction for both families and clients in recovery.

Continued Support

By providing additional aftercare services, we can help clients expand their knowledge and experience on how to prevent relapse, as well as develop stronger coping skills to maintain sobriety.

We utilize the Ongoing Recovery Support Network philosophy in everything we do at The Camp, meaning we incorporate it into clients treatment process until they feel comfortable enough to include it into their newly sober lifestyle. We offer options to network with 12-Step, Smart Recovery, Life Ring and Referrals to Clinicians.

Co-Occurring Treatment

We understand that addiction impacts a clients mental state, which is why we encourage participation in behavioral therapies that will help them to recognize triggers, avoid using and learn how to properly cope going forward.

Experiential Therapies

The Camp Recovery Center offers a variety of outdoor-focused experiential therapies.

Refreshing Location

Nestled on 25 acres in the redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains, The Camp’s grounds provide a serene location for clients to recalibrate and refresh as they focus on recovery.

Dedication to Success

For nearly 30 years, The Camp has provided cutting-edge rehabilitation. Our clinical team creates individualized treatment plans to give our clients the tools they need for a successful recovery.

I had been in rehab before, but I never experienced treatment like how The Camp does treatment. Their programs are amazing and so many people changed their lives while I was in treatment there. It felt so good to be a part of a community of recovery. I'd recommend the Camp to everyone.
