California Executive Detox & Addiction Treatment Center in San Diego

An Actual Video Above of AToN Center’s San Diego Rehab, A Sanctuary…

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.

Why AToN?

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.”

The Core Curriculum at our California Addiction Treatment Center

We provide a cognitive behavioral emphasis to all group and individual sessions and encourage family therapy participation. In addition, biofeedback, EMDR, and trauma-informed counseling, as well as recreational and exposure sessions are supplements to our core curriculum. Offsite meetings near our San Diego rehab include SMART Recovery® and 12 Step Groups. Residents at AToN Center may choose which program(s) make the most sense for them whether it is our 12 Step rehab program or our non 12 Step rehab program.AToN Center believes in collaborating with residents to achieve a recovery philosophy that works in their life – for example, we do not require all participants to work the steps or to remain in isolation while in treatment in order to get well.

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.
