I will never go back!

Attending an Out-of-State Addiction Treatment


If you’re considering addiction treatment, you probably feel compelled to distance yourself from potential triggers: people, places, and things that remind you of using, or that caused you to use in the first place. Trying to get sober at home can feel impossible when old friends come knocking, or when you drive past places associated with drug or alcohol use.

As you consider your treatment options, consider facilities that are out of the area – or even out of state. Many of our clients travel to our Southern California rehab facility to leave day-to-day stressors behind and focus fully on their recovery.

Benefits to Attending Out-Of-State Rehab

Traveling to attend rehab comes with its own proven advantages for lasting recovery. Some of these include:

  • Immersion in a sober community, where everyone understands your situation and is striving for the same goals.
  • Removal from relapse triggers, including people and environments that could compromise your fledgling recovery.
  • A break from personal relationships that may have created stress or the urge to use, allowing you to center yourself before addressing any personal problems.
  • Privacy and confidentiality throughout the treatment process, which maintains your reputation at work (and in your social circles).
  • A healing, peaceful environment. It’s no secret that recovery is one of the most difficult things you’ll take on in life. As you do the hard work of psychologically and physically removing drugs and alcohol from your life, you deserve to be in a stress-free environment. By checking into one of our well-appointed facilities, you’ll be able to focus on your recovery and free yourself of the difficulties of day-to-day life.


Concise Recovery is an addiction treatment center that’s fully accredited by the Joint Commission— the highest standard in addiction treatment. Our treatment facility is upscale, featuring comfortable rooms and spacious bathrooms, and it is a space where you can heal peacefully and privately. This environment is ideal for you to detach yourself from your current environment and embark on your path to healing. 

Sobriety is often hard work. But you can make the process easier by removing any negative influences in your life. By healing in solitude, you can start your recovery process from a fresh slate.

You can begin the first step to healing by reaching out to Concise Recovery. Our staff is made up of addiction treatment specialists who are dedicated to your recovery journey. Contact us today at 1-866-256-3464 to learn more.

Most insurance will pay for rehabilitation. Concise Recovery works with most PPO & POS insurance policies that offer out-of-network benefits. We currently do not accept Medi-Cal or Medicare. Contact our staff today to learn how you can verify your insurance.

Dual disorders, or co-occurring disorders, happen when a person suffers from a mental health disorder alongside a substance use disorder. The two disorders often feed into one another, creating a vicious cycle that may feel impossible to break. Dual diagnosis is the process of diagnosing both disorders and creating a treatment plan to address them simultaneously. Since a mental health disorder can contribute to addiction and vice versa, both issues must be addressed together to achieve lasting recovery.

After patients have completed the rehabilitation process with Concise Recovery, they have the option of residing in our sober living community. Sober living allows a person to transition back into daily life while living in a safe location free of addictive substances. Residents in sober living communities are expected to look after themselves and keep up with responsibilities such as paying rent, completing chores, and abiding by a curfew.

Relapse is a very common part of the recovery journey. Research has shown that more than half of those who complete rehab treatment for drug or alcohol addiction will relapse within the first year. However, relapsing does not mean you have failed, and with Concise Recovery’s continuous care through our sober living program, you can achieve long-term recovery and keep control over your lifestyle.

Inpatient rehabilitation, or residential treatment, means that patients reside at an addiction treatment facility for a set length of time. With inpatient care, patients have 24/7 access to recovery specialists and can heal in a safe and controlled environment. Outpatient care is when patients receive addiction treatment services but can still return to the comfort of their own homes at the end of the day. Outpatient care allows patients to have a more flexible schedule and still live their daily life outside of a treatment center.

The rehabilitation process can vary depending on your needs and the best timeline to suit your healing. Most addiction rehabilitation programs vary in length from 30-day programs to 60-days to 90-days. Contact us to learn more.

At Concise Recovery, you will start your healing journey with one of our accredited sub-acute detox programs, which take place in luxurious, private facilities, staffed by industry experts. From there, our team will create an individualized treatment plan to best fit your recovery needs. Addiction recovery can include inpatient care, outpatient care, therapies, and aftercare through our sober living program.
