Located in Hemet Valley, California near the San Jacinto Mountains, Hemet Valley Recovery Center offers a sober living community as well as outpatient treatment for those with substance abuse issues. Adult men and women can participate in either a standard outpatient track or an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) with evidence-based treatment and 12-step support.
Accommodations and Food
Hemet Valley has four sober living homes that each house five or six residents. Homes are either one or two story single-family houses with high-end finishes like granite counter-tops, en-suite master bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs and spacious living quarters. There are private and semi-private rooms in each house and many of the rooms have flat-screen TVs, full or queen-sized beds, ample closet space, dressers and desks. The houses also have comfortable common areas including large living rooms with house TVs, modern and fully-equipped kitchens, dining rooms and fireplaces. Some clients may have private bathrooms while others may share with one or two other residents. All of the homes are in quiet, family-oriented residential neighborhoods with tree-lined streets and manicured lawns.
The facility provides each client with a temporary gym membership and schedules weekly yoga classes as well. For convenience, bedding, cleaning supplies and kitchenware are all provided by the facility. Each home permits residents to have cell phones as well as other personal devices. Clients are required to obtain employment or attend school while residing in Hemet Valley homes. Sundays are reserved for family and friends with clients either arranging day trips and outings off-site or inviting visitors to the homes for socialization.
As a bonus, Hemet Valley programs provide food for clients enrolled in either treatment track. For those in IOP, a staff dietitian designs daily menus and prepares community meals. Residents in the sober living homes have basic groceries provided as part of the cost of treatment—though they are also free to purchase their own food. Those in treatment are responsible for cooking meals themselves.
Treatment and Staff
Outpatient care is broken into two phases, beginning with IOP. Clients enrolled in IOP are provided with transportation services daily to and from the facility for three-hour morning or evening sessions, four days a week. Because the programs are individualized, there is no required duration for treatment. Still, programs generally last between 30 and 60 days. Following IOP, standard outpatient care requires attendance of group meetings or individuals sessions once or twice a week. Clients must also attend regular off-site AA/NA meetings and obtain a sponsor.
A typical day in Hemet Valley treatment includes a morning meditation followed by a group session for about an hour then a 12-step meeting or an individual therapy session. In addition to traditional therapy methods like CBT, DBT and EMDR, the facility also provides holistic treatment options like exercise, recreational therapy, art and music therapy as well as acupuncture. Treatment includes gender-specific groups, relapse prevention techniques, relaxation and coping methods, written assignments, journaling and reflection time.
The staff at Hemet Valley Recovery Center consists of therapists, counselors, nurses, psychologists, holistic practitioners, case managers, Master’s-level CTRSs, CADCs and LCSWs as well as medical doctors and LPNs.
Hemet Valley Recovery Center also provides a weekly family program at the facility in the form of group therapy. Aftercare is also available once a week with an hour-long group session. Additionally, alumni hold weekly AA meetings in the evenings. The facility also performs weekly urinalysis tests during the initial stage of outpatient treatment.
Hemet Valley Recovery Center provides safe accommodations for clients to comfortably settle into a supported life of sobriety. Treatment incorporates a range of proven therapy methods and an extensive support staff. Overall, Hemet Valley Recovery Center provides comprehensive outpatient and sober living care for those who are seeking support after completing primary care—all at a competitive price.
