Our founder Glenn Swanson CADC II, MBA, after struggling with cocaine addiction, entered and greatly benefited from residential treatment in 1991. After overcoming his struggles with addiction, he founded our first stand-alone house (Upland, California) in 1994 with a new mission in life – to help those in similar dark places he had been while leading men to greater spiritual and physical health.
Glenn and our entire team understand the reality of addiction and how it can destroy lives, relationships, and physical health. Ever since 1994 we have been striving to translate our personal experiences into the best addiction treatment available. Every client experiences their own personalized, systematic recovery plan, tailored their own addiction, mental state, and physical needs. Guided by addiction specialists with care and compassion, we commit to every client who enters our doors.
Driven by Service
With Glenn’s experience and vision guiding our paths, our philosophy centers upon addressing the realities and challenges of addiction. Residential treatment, and even outpatient treatment is only the first leg of the lifelong journey toward recovery. It’s our greatest priority to equip people with the tools to continue rehabilitation in the long-term, no matter what triggers and temptations they may encounter.
The cornerstone of recovery is abstinence, so using the tenets of the 12 Step program, we help educate recovering addicts to avoid relapse triggers and temptations. Because this is a massive change in the lives of our clients and not to be taken lightly, our staff is universally experienced in aftercare and well trained.
Why We Do This
We have seen many people leave our facility after successfully completing our recovery program. They’re always excited but nervous to go back to the real world and begin their lives again. We offer continuing support for everyone who enters our care, providing outpatient treatment, entry into 12-Step programs, and alumni groups, which can make the difference between a long-term recovery and relapse. We do this because we’ve been there; we can help you avoid the pitfalls of recovery.
