New Method Wellness Overview

Based in San Juan Capistrano, California, New Method Wellness is a substance abuse and mental health treatment center that provides residential and outpatient care to individuals suffering from substance abuse and chemical dependency issues. Founded in 2006, the treatment center offers four facilities, three houses for live-in clients and a therapy space.
The average duration of a lengthened stay by a client seeking primary care can range from 30 to 90 days as it is dependent on the individual. Treatment approach includes talk therapy, psychoanalysis, and medical care. The facility also offers on-site detoxification services to clients in need of such care. Dual diagnosis support is available as well and is an executive treatment program for clients who are otherwise engaged or too busy to seek long-term treatment. The facility offers outpatient services complete with group therapy, counseling, holistic therapies, and life skills workshops.

Accommodation and Food

The facility offers two relatively upscale houses; one in La Jolla and another in Capo Beach. The La Jolla facility is strictly for male clients and is located in San Juan Capistrano in a gated community, while the Capo Beach location is strictly for females and is located in Dana Point.
Both facilities offer modern interiors and gourmet-style kitchens. Clients registered at the facility are only entitled to one meal (lunch) and are required to fend for themselves the rest of the day. This responsibility is made to help promote and encourage self-reliance. Clients all receive grocery cards which can be used to purchase items. To encourage self-discipline and responsibility as well, clients are required to clean up after themselves instead of providing daily housekeeping services. Housekeeping comes to clean up on a weekly basis and not a daily basis.
Each facility admits up to 10 clients and most residents share a room with another client. After treatment, clients can move to the transitional living facility which is offered by New Method Wellness Center, which also offers similar amenities to the residential facilities.
