Where Wellness Begins

Lasting Recovery: San Diego's Oldest and Most-Respected Outpatient Treatment Program

Not all outpatient addiction treatment programs are created equal. When it comes to YOUR successful recovery from substance abuse, you need individualized attention, not the “one-sized-fits-all” approach used by too many rehab programs. As one of the top San Diego outpatient alcohol and drug treatment programs, Lasting Recovery helps you regain your total wellness in mind, body, and spirit, by providing the latest evidence based services that address your unique needs as a person.




Addiction and the Family

Addiction is a lonely, isolating disease that somehow affects everyone around the substance abuser—spouses and significant others, children, other family members, close friends, and even coworkers. Without help, untreated substance abuse ruins lives and relationships. The best way you can help your addicted loved one is to have them enroll in one of Lasting Recovery’s outpatient addiction treatment programs.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Intensive Outpatient Program

If you require more treatment and support than outpatient therapy can provide, Lasting Recovery offers a morning and evening Intensive Outpatient Program that helps you break free from the vicious cycle of addiction. Meeting for several hours a week, Lasting Recovery’s IOP allows you to remain in your own home while you acquire and practice the sobriety skills you need to succeed.

Partial Hospilitation Program

Partial Hospitalization Program

Sometimes, you need even more help than an intensive outpatient program can provide, but you don't have the time or money to check into residential rehab. For you, Lasting Recovery offers comprehensive treatment through our Partial Hospitalization Program. This day treatment option provides a safe, immersive therapeutic environment in which you can heal and work on your recovery.

Dual Diagnosis

Dual Diagnosis: Co-Occurring Addiction and Mental Illness

Did you know that roughly HALF of all people with a mental illness also struggle with substance abuse, and vice-versa? If this includes you, take comfort in the fact that you are not alone. Lasting Recovery specializes in the treatment of just such a dual diagnosis—when addiction co-occurs with such conditions as anxiety, depression, PTSD, or bipolar disorder.By treating each condition as the primary illness, we help you successfully heal from both.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

If you are still struggling with strong drug or alcohol cravings or experiencing post-detox withdrawal symptoms, Lasting Recovery's Medical Director may recommend certain FDA-approved medications to support your successful sobriety. In fact, Medication-Assisted Therapy is considered the "gold standard" among San Diego outpatient alcohol and drug treatment programs.

Recovery Management & Relapse Prevention

A significant portion of your time in Lasting Recovery’s outpatient addiction program is spent on learning how to STAY sober after completing rehab. To support your continued success, Lasting Recovery offers an entire year of aftercare services. This is why Lasting Recovery is appropriate for both people who are newly-sober and those who need support after returning home from residential rehab.
