It is important for you to get to know our team and also for us to get to know you and all about your current situation. This enables us to put together the most effective components for your personalized treatment program.

On the day you decide to embark on your detox program, you will either meet us at our center in Laguna Niguel, CA or we will arrange to collect you from an agreed meeting point. Everything is arranged by our staff.

The next step will be to continue with your assessment in more depth so that we will have more information about your health history and substance abuse. We understand that addiction affects people in very different ways and so there is no single approach to treating it. Undertaking a comprehensive assessment is essential in allowing us to create a personalized recovery strategy. A physician will complete a full assessment also, including a drug urine screen and physical exam.


After the intake process has been completed, you will then be able to move on to detoxification. This is the first step of rehab and often the one people are most concerned about. It is impossible to predict how a person will respond when they stop using drugs or alcohol. The severity of withdrawal symptoms depends on several factors including things such as the length of time the person has been using and the substance used.

Once detox has been completed, clients move on to a rehab program where they can start focusing on getting better. Residential rehab is often considered to be the most effective form of substance abuse treatment because it is intensive. While you are staying at the Capo Canyon Recovery center near Lake Forest, CA you will enjoy nutritious meals, comfortable surroundings and a packed therapy agenda to keep you busy.
