Genesis Recovery: An Addiction Treatment Center in San Diego

Our mission is to help restore the lives of individuals who have been broken by the disease of addiction by implementing an individualized treatment experience utilizing evidence-based models, medically assisted treatment, trauma healing, 12-steps, clinical modalities, family restoration, faith integration, and community.

A Multifaceted Treatment Program

Genesis Recovery is a holistic addiction treatment center in California. We provide individualized services specifically designed to meet our residents wherever they may be in their relationship with drugs and/or alcohol. Our facility and credentialed staff are equipped to treat alcohol, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, inhalant, and prescription abuse and dependence.

Our Approach to Treatment

Our own experiences, those of others who have achieved permanent sobriety, and scientific research have proven that successful recovery requires a multifaceted approach to treatment. We have combined these elements into the foundation of our program at Genesis Recovery: a relationship with a power greater than ourselves, participation in a 12-step recovery program, clinical treatment to address thinking patterns, trauma, relations, and coping skills and a strong community of others committed to long-term sobriety.


Addiction is viewed as a personal struggle shaped by individual stories, including childhood trauma, family issues, and mental health challenges. Tailoring treatment to each person's unique background and motivations improves outcomes, emphasizing the importance of long-term recovery goals.
