Addiction Treatment Locations

Sovereign Health of Rancho San Diego is dedicated to helping youth overcome behavioral health issues and problems related to the misuse and abuse of alcohol and drugs. Its adolescent residential facility offers comprehensive treatment to teens, aged 12 to 17 years. Located in the city of El Cajon, California, in San Diego County, Rancho San Diego’s ranch-style facility is situated in a conventional setting amid sprawling greenery with lots of trees and greenbelts surrounding the property.

Nestled between two mountain ranges and situated near the ocean, the adolescent facility provides plenty of space to its young patients for recreational and experiential activities that will eventually help them overcome drug and/or alcohol addiction. Young patients can enjoy the serene and calm environment of San Diego County while seeking treatment for their problematic use of alcohol and/or drugs.

We offer male and female adolescents a holistic array of evidence-based, complementary and experiential treatments to meet all their needs. While a comprehensive treatment program may include medically supervised detoxification treatment along with various behavioral therapies and counseling sessions, there are ways to help recovering teens prepare themselves for going addiction-free, even without having to go through challenging detox programs. Our experts are certified in making individualized treatment plans for the teens and their efforts are supported by that of the staff who provide round the clock assistance, care and support to the recovering patients.

Housing amenities and accommodation

At Rancho San Diego, teens live in a summer camp-like environment. The facility provides separate living quarters for males and females in houses that are located in a safe and gated residential neighborhood.

In addition to offering a comfortable and secure accommodation, the well-trained and qualified staff provide 24-hour supervision and crisis intervention to ensure teens’ safety and protection. Adolescents get three meals a day that are prepared by our on-site nutritional chef. We also have a provision for special dietary meals that can be discussed with the experts and the staff.

They can also receive other educational accommodations, including GED preparation, credit recovery, and independent study through their current school of residence.
