Medically Managed Detox Program

Residential Treatment Program

Waterfront Recovery Services is the first detox program certified by the State of California Department of Health Care Services to provide medically assisted treatment for drug and alcohol withdrawal.
Includes withdrawal treatment for alcohol, opiates, methamphetamine, benzodiazepine and combinations substances. We use the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria and dimensions of care to develop an individualized treatment plan. Our evidence based programs include the Matrix System.

We provide residential treatment for men and women to help understand addiction, learn healthy coping skills and to prepare them for return to the community.
