Who We Are

Learn more about Capo Canyon & how we can help you heal.

Our mission is simple: to provide you with a safe detoxification in a comfortable, licensed, residential environment. This means we are not a hospital, but we have experienced 24/7 staff, including nurses and physicians, monitoring your care to ensure that you take a gentle first step into treatment. Our physician and his staff have successfully detoxed thousands of clients over the years and will immediately recognize your unique medical and detox needs. We only have up to 6 clients at any time so you will get the care and attention you deserve.  Our boutique residential facility also allows you to create a truly individualized treatment plan and the flexibility to add therapeutic services if and when you feel up to it. We are conveniently located in Mission Viejo, CA, and are near Laguna Niguel, Aliso Viejo, and Lake Forest.

Designed for Your Comfort.

At Capo Canyon Recovery, we combine our physician’s detox assessments and medication protocols with round-the-clock nursing staff to ensure a safe, comfortable detox process.

We can offer you optional holistic massage, acupuncture and meditation to help ease the discomfort and anxiety associated with withdrawal. We are also the first in California to offer licensed Incidental Medical Services, which allows our physician and his staff to be on-site and oversee your care.

Once you are stabilized physically, we offer a program of evidence-based individual and group therapy and educational sessions to address the emotional aspects to your addiction and address any trauma.

The staff here has changed my life. I will never forget everything they all have done but I will never forget how much the nurse Jeanie helped me. The therapist there is also amazing and I wouldn't be who I am today if it weren't for them. I recommend this place to everyone I know who is struggling.

I loved Capo Canyon Recovery! The staff was amazing and compassionate at every turn. The house was beyond fantastic! The backyard was my favorite place to hangout, there were tiny lizards, hummingbirds, and butterflies galore.

If you’ve ever been to treatment and found yourself at capo canyon it would be readily apparent that this place is different from any treatment center in the United States. Nobody arrives at a detox/stabilization program in their best shape but what sets capo canyon apart is the care and compassion the on-site nurses and all the staff show.

This place saved my life. All the staff are super welcoming and knowledgeable and sincerely cares for each individual and their well being. By far the best and most comfortable detox facility I have been to. Forever grateful for this place!

Our daughter has been at Casa for 90 days and has been in previous rehab centers. At Casa she has made amazing progress and she has been a some what difficult case to deal with. We have had an open line of communication with the Center and they have been tremendously helpful not only with our daughter but supporting us along the way. I would recommend Casa for anyone needing professional help in various areas.
