Located in the upscale Orange County, California area of San Juan Capistrano, Whole Life Recovery provides detox, outpatient substance abuse treatment and sober living. Whole Life was founded in 2015 by former technology executive Tim Blakeley, who is interested in applying high-tech approaches, like brain mapping and neurofeedback, to recovery. Whole Life treats clients in an office setting and comfortable, upscale residences. Whole Life creates highly customized holistic treatment plans.
Accommodations and Food
Clients reside in well-appointed, gender-specific homes with clean, modern décor. Bedrooms are shared between at least two clients. The residences also have meetings spaces, TV rooms and outdoor lounge areas for relaxing. While in detox (usually seven to 10 days), clients cannot have electronics and may use phones only under staff supervision. In the sober living phase, clients can use personal electronics during designated times.
The homes have private chefs who prepares daily meals with clients’ preferences and nutritional needs in mind.
Treatment and Staff
Treatment at Whole Life begins with a bio-psycho-social assessment of each client. Detox services typically last three to five days. On-site doctors prescribe Suboxone to those who desire Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction. There’s also a nurse and behavioral health technicians who provide 24/7 support and supervision. After the detox phase, clients typically transition to the sober living and outpatient. This level of treatment is for those who are ready to return to work, school or family responsibilities; it typically lasts about three months.
Clients are offered evolving customized treatment plans that include approximately five hours of group therapy Mondays through Fridays and individual therapy at least once a week. Therapy utilizes evidence-based modalities, including CBT and DBT, to help clients develop coping skills and learn alternatives to self-destructive behavior. Clients are required to attend a minimum of four AA/NA meetings per week.
The treatment team includes a MFT, CADC, case manager and a consulting physician and psychiatrist. Whole Life’s psychiatrist and MFT provide therapy and medication management for clients in need of dual diagnosis support.
Whole Life offers options for experiential therapy, such as art and music therapy as well as yoga. Clients also have access to nutritional counseling, brain mapping, neurofeedback and float tank therapy. A family program is offered for the loved ones of clients every eight weeks.
Whole Life Recovery’s comfortable, intimate treatment atmosphere allows clients to relax and reflect in the initial stages of recovery. Its small staff-to-client ratio results in customized, holistic treatment that addresses each client’s addiction using both cutting edge technology and traditional 12-step support.
