AToN Center’s San Diego rehab is a sanctuary staffed with highly trained psychologists and recovery personnel that offers an addiction recovery program. AToN Center’s high Clinician to Resident ratio (1:2) allows for daily individualized treatment for those seeking respite from problematic drug and alcohol misuse. AToN Center recognizes that a single modality doesn’t successfully meet the needs of every individual that is seeking recovery, therefore we offer a multitude of best practice addiction treatment methods in order to capture the needs of each client, including those with co-occurring mental health diagnoses.
AToN Center is a licensed, certified and accredited Residential Treatment Facility providing residential and detox services. We are certified to offer Incidental Medical Services (IMS), a new supplemental service that provides medical oversight for residents in Residential Treatment and additional scrutiny by our licensing board. All of our San Diego rehab programs include daily individual therapy, as well as four inclusive holistic treatment services per week. We have an on-site gym and provide weekly offsite exposure activities. For more information about our comprehensive California addiction treatment center, read about “what makes us different.”

ATon was a life changing experience. This was the 3rd rehab I’ve been to & I’ve been able to stay sober for over a year now. Everything about my life has improved & I can honestly say I wouldn’t change a thing right now. Drugs & alcohol, low self esteem & derpression consumed my life & now after the amazing doctors & staff at ATon I have a whole new outlook on life, priorities, & what truly matters I’m the long run. I learned why I turned to drugs & alcohol for the problems in my life & what I c…
The setting is impeccable and the staff is second to none. One of the most beautiful treatment centers Ive seen and experienced.
This is a hard review to write- I mean it is one thing to recommend a restaurant that was good, but how do you fully put into words a place that took you in and saved your life? I tried all of the 12-step options to try to stop drinking, I tried everything I could on my own, but it didn’t work. AToN worked. I am now sober, and I am using the tools that I learned and practiced at AToN to stay that way. The difference at AToN is that it is not about just giving something up. It is about recogn…
What can I say about a program that has changed my life, and gave me a life that I didn’t even know was possible. I came to AToN in August 2011. I was a broken shell of a person, I had no hope and had suicidal thoughts daily. I felt comforted and cared for and in a safe environment the moment I walked through the doors. For the first time in a really long time i felt things where going to be okay. I was able to open up to the clinicians like I had never before. It was truly first class all the w…
A lot of rehabs claim to have the full package then fail to deliver. AToN actually delivers. Incredible staff, incredible services, incredible program. Holistic therapies daily, individual sessions daily, and they work with you to create a strong program of recovery for after you discharge. I’m 90 days sober this week and could not have done it without AToN.
Tremendous. Flexible for the recalcitrant yet firm for those seeking solid methods to assist in continued recovery. TrAditional group and individual therapy as well as holistic massage, hypnotherapy and acupuncture. Not a magic pill but real help for the motivated.
I checked into your program [at the beginning of] 2013, and have been sober every day since. I was struggling with a long-standing addiction to benzodiazapines and marijuana, an eating disorder, self-harm, and depression, a destructive relationship, and within that last year of using I had also been using meth and had become agoraphobic. Man, have things changed since then. When I think about that part of my life, I feel like it was just a movie I saw, or some strange person that I used to know,…
Strengths: Doctoral level clinicians, small group sizes, daily individual therapy, SMART and/or 12 Step (not strictly one modality). Offers EMDR, Biofeedback and exposure sessions. This facility is best for individuals who are higher functioning and motivated for treatment. This is not a facility for individuals who are forced into treatment.
Very High Staff to Client Ratio, Excellent Nutritional Offerings, Amazing Holistic Treatment Included, Non-12 Step if that’s not your thing. Weaknesses: If you don’t have private insurance, the program is pretty pricey. I really got a lot of the program. I received 5 one on ones per week with a Psychologist, 4 Holistic Sessions, a nutrition plan that help me get healthy again, not to mention a treatment plan developed exclusively for me. I have been sober 3 years now. THIS PROGRAM WORKS!
Friendly staff and they developed a plan and stuck to it. It was a little slow going through the check in and check out process. I met with the doctors and they gave me options based on my personality and what i was comfortable with for treatment. They listened to me very well.
