WHAT IS DISCOVERY TRANSITIONS OUTPATIENT TREATMENT PROGRAM?

Discovery Transitions is a high-quality drug and alcohol outpatient treatment facility located in Southern California. We believe in treating addiction as a three-fold illness: mind, body, and spirit. We offer outpatient treatment programs for individuals seeking structure and a program designed to address each client individually. Our primary goal is to encourage our clients to maintain their commitment to recovery while receiving the necessary treatment to live a productive life, free from drug and alcohol dependence.

WHAT AGES DO YOU SERVE?

HOW IS DISCOVERY TRANSITIONS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER OUTPATIENT PROGRAMS?

At Discovery Transitions we believe in treating addiction as a three-fold illness: mind, body, and spirit. Our treatment approach is rooted in evidence-based therapy principles allowing our compassionate counseling staff to work with individuals to heal the root causes of addiction and not just the symptoms.

WHAT ABOUT THE STAFF?

At Discovery Transitions, we have a well-trained staff of professionals fulfilling a variety of tasks. Our treatment team consists of psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, licensed therapists, and clinical directors. We also work with an array of therapists ranging from yoga instructors to music and art therapists.

I'VE HAD TREATMENT BEFORE AND IT DIDN'T DO ANY GOOD. WHAT WILL BE DIFFERENT THIS TIME?

Many people who have come to Discovery Transitions have been through multiple treatment programs. We firmly believe that it is not the person who fails a treatment program, but that the past treatment programs have not been appropriate or suitable for the person.

Success also depends on the client’s willingness to be well and to take responsibility for his or her recovery with compassionate and appropriate support.

HOW CAN I DO FAMILY THERAPY IF MY FAMILY DOES NOT LIVE IN CALIFORNIA?

At Discovery Transitions, we recognize the importance of family therapy and will make every effort to work with the family and individual’s schedules.

HOW LONG WILL I STAY IN THE PROGRAM?

Treatment at Discovery Transitions is personalized. You will work closely with a treatment team to build a plan of care that is appropriate based on your unique needs.

Your commitment to treatment ensures that we have adequate time to work with you on your journey at Discovery Transitions Outpatient Treatment Center. The actual course of treatment will depend on your individual treatment plan and the progress on your goals.

WILL MY INSURANCE COVER THE COST OF MY TREATMENT?

Discovery Transitions does accept insurance reimbursement through most major carriers. However, insurance rarely covers the entire cost of treatment. As a courtesy to you, we will contact your insurance company to determine your available benefits and the associated out of pocket costs. We will advocate for you to receive as much insurance reimbursement as your benefit and authorization permits, however, please remember that our professional relationship is with you and not with your insurance company. Additional associated costs will be your responsibility, and we kindly request that payment arrangements be confirmed before admission.

WHAT IF I HAVE NO INSURANCE?

We appreciate direct payment prior to admission to Discovery Transitions. Our staff will work with you to determine the cost of treatment.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It

  • Discovery Transitions changed my life!! Great food, great staff, wonderful place! Awesome to get to know the amazing clients and see that i was not alone in my recovery. I made friends for life in the short time i got to spend there. Not a better facility anywhere in my opinion!!The team of employees, from the Technicians all the way up to the Owner, all have a patient first mentality.

  • Going to treatment at Discovery Transitions was one of the best programs I've participated in, they helped me get my life back. They have amazing staff and overall good-natured people. They focus on all aspects of counseling, case management, meetings, different types of therapy, including trauma, one on one counseling. This is coming from someone who has been traumatized and neglected. They helped me get to the root of the problem. Which most times can feel very uncomfortable but they provide groups that you participate in and communicate with other addicts and hear their life stories. They really are an organization of team working to help heal the conflicted minds of us addicts that we faced every day. I would highly recommend this treatment program to anyone suffering from substance abuse or mental health.
