Facility Highlights

Homelike Environments

We want our programs to feel like home, not like a hospital. Our locations in Southern California offer gorgeous grounds equally distant from the beach and the mountains.

Fitness and Yoga

Yoga can do a lot to help you physically, but there is also a very deep spiritual aspect involved for those who practice Yoga regularly.

Mind, Body and Spirit

Balance is a feeling derived from being whole and complete; it's a sense of harmony. It is essential to maintaining quality of Life. Healthy thoughts = healthy actions.

Detox Safely in Comfort

Our years of experience with sub-acute drug addiction detoxification have provided us with extensive knowledge and experience of the many possible side effects that occur during this process.

3:1 Client Ratio

At all our locations, we ensure a very low client-to-counselor ratio, so your journey to recovery will always have our undivided attention.

JCAHO Accreditation

An independent, not-for-profit organization, Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards.

Treatment Center Philosophy

At His House we provide many levels of treatment from detox to sober living and ongoing continuing care. Our multi-disciplinary approach is instrumental in educating our clients and their loved ones about the effects of drugs and alcohol on the body, mind, and spirit. Using evidence based modalities, our qualified experienced staff works closely with the addict to develop an accurate and effective treatment plan based on individual needs and goals. For many, addiction and alcoholism are complex problems that not only involve compulsive use of substances, but also interlocks behaviors, feelings and how an individual interacts with loved ones. This results in a lifestyle that is self-defeating and unstable. The best treatment does not stop at freeing our client from chemical use, but it also examines the impact of emotional, behavioral and interpersonal consequences. Our program helps clients find and maintain a lifestyle that is free of dependency. We believe in treating addiction and alcoholism on a holistic level using a multidisciplinary approach. Our facility aims to address all aspects of the diseases of alcoholism and addiction. The diseases have many components such as the physical, mental, biological, emotional, and spiritual. Our goal and purpose is to find the excellence that is within us all and to celebrate it with every part of our heart and soul.

Testimonials

  • "I’ve been in and out of treatment programs for about five years. My life really started going down hill the last year before coming to treatment. I have a 4 month old child and I thought he would help me stay sober, but I learned no one except me can keep myself sober. You have to want it. This program is not “rehab” It’s treatment. I have never been anywhere comparable to this place, The staff really care, they don’t tell you what to do… they ask you nicely. They are very caring respectful people. We leave the house and go do fun things all the time. Being in this program I’ve learned how to have fun in sobriety. I have also gained relationships with the clients that will hopefully be lifelong. This place is amazing. If you want to have a shot at being clean they will do everything in their power to show you how to do it."
  • "I came to His House on February 13, 2016. I had been in treatment 8 times before and had convinced myself I had all the answers. Once I hit rock bottom and was willing to put the work in, His House was the place that gave me support, structure, and taught me the tools to implement that in my life. After 8 years of active addiction, I definitely needed all three desperately. The staff has given me opportunities to become the person that I wanted to be and live a productive life. I wasn't just another client. They dedicated their efforts and time to work with me on my underlying issues and ways to work through them. I honestly have nothing but respect and tremendous appreciation for everyone at His House. This is where my life really began, and I couldn't have done it without them."
  • "I came to this place in April of 2016, and let me tell you this place is amazing! The staff is awesome they work so well with each case. The brothers in the house are also great. and the food let me tell you is just outta this world! I came into this in active addiction on meth and didn’t think there could be any chance of getting my life back on the right track, but with the tools provided they taught me how to live sober, how to deal with everyday issues , and dealing with my anxiety was a great accomplishment. Please if you feel that your life could not get any better or get any worse come to this place. it will save your life, family, and your soul! . Thank you his house for giving my life,soul and family back. Wish you all the best of luck."
  • "By going through treatment I can personally attest that you can be able to resolve these problems and come out of this facility, His House Treatment Center, a changed person."
  • "This place is awesome! A safe family-like environment in which treatment is practiced in a real world environment.Small Staff to Client ratios provide excellent one-on-one programs. The staff is genuinely committed to both treatment and recovery. The groups are small, manageable and engaging; the meetings are friendly,focused and serious; the schedule itself provided the structure and discipline that this addict/alcoholic has been missing. I gained lifelong friends and relationships. It was just a solid experience."
  • "I'm still clean. I'm a walking miracle. I came into this place a hopeless junkie. I left with the necessary tools to overcome cravings and triggers. My experience was life changing. Without His House and their staff members I know that I would be dead or in jail."
  • "I entered treatment at His House in September of 2014. I did a 90 day treatment program in the residential facility followed by an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for 30 days. One of the most impacting aspects of treatment at His House was the caring, individualized treatment by the staff. They are truly relatable and professionally helpful. I would recommend His House to anyone who has said enough is enough. With the staff at His House, from the counselors to the cooks, there is an atmosphere of sobriety that is conducive to life changing."

My experience with His House in July 2017 was nothing but great. It was exactly what my life needed to know life can get better with recovery. The support from staff and clients who were there when I arrived were so helpful and strong. I felt engaged the entire time. I've been to treatment once before and this time was totally different. Of course, do your research, but I see some negative comments below that I can't relate with and have a hard time believing. Thank you everybody at His House!

First and foremost, I am sober 9 months later, this was ultimately the goal and so for that I am grateful. The facility is a 100+ year old house in Upland, CA. It is passable, but not luxurious by any stretch. My biggest gripe here would be the used old mattresses and the worn blankets provided. The food, while I was there, to put it bluntly, was not good. For being in California, there was an extreme lack of fresh produce that should be the cornerstone of a healthy diet. There was plenty of food, the standard was just low. Most importantly, I would address those that are considering this facility. HisHouse is not a luxury facility, and you will be forced to work hard at your recovery. Youo will be made to feel uncomfortable. You will be forced to deal with emotions that are painful. THIS IS AS IT SHOULD BE. You are in the place you are in because you have not worked hard, you have not been uncomfortable, and you have not felt painful emotions. You used your DOC to deal with that stuff. Until YOU are ready to confront all the issues at hand, it does not matter what facility you go to, you will fail. I hope you are ready for the challenge. It has been worth every moment for me.

My overall experience with His House was phenomenal and life changing. Before I found His House, I used to have a full-time job. I used to make a steady, comfortable income. I used to think I was living the life, working, partying, having friends, and a sense of family. I would partake in many party favors throughout my days and would never think it was because of them that would put me in the unfortunate situations that I would find myself in more often than I could account for. It would eventually lead me to losing that job, that income, and soon later my sense of self. I defined myself daily on what drugs I did that day, who I hung out to take them with and what did I sacrifice to get them. It was a daily suffering trying to find myself that next high, that next to thing to sell, steal, and constantly wondering how am I going to do it again tomorrow. After running out of things to sell, finding myself in a position of contemplating suicide or living on the streets I thought to myself, \"This can not be it. I refuse to accept this as the end.\" Thus I came to deciding that it was time for me to go to check myself into rehab. It would be my first time and I sure was skeptical about it because I was always afraid of the stigma that society pins on people for those who get checked in. I didn\'t want to have that be attached to me the rest of my life. However, I was soon brought to an understanding that rehab wasn\'t a place that bad people go to get a reprieve in life, it was for sick people trying to get better. I initially committed myself for 30 days that once I was coming near to the end of that commitment I thought to myself there was much more I can gain from this program that I can use for the rest of my life. The staff were friendly and were always friendly and helped me out putting things into perspective. The food helped out feel comfortable and fill in the places where I lacked when I would choose drugs over food. The facility and accommodations made me feel like I was home. Today, I owe my life to His House. They have setup the foundation in my recovery that I get to stand on every day to suit up and show up. They have given me the self-confidence in myself that I never thought I had. They have given me another chance in life I didn\'t think I had.

The experience was a good one, although the program expanded in a major way as I was leaving, ultimately it was a program that got me sober and gave me a new lease on life. I like the community that gets built around the rehab. In fact, I moved to California after treatment there. There is a strict 12-step model, they have good intentions and the counselors care and have personal experience in conquering addiction. They have a 90 day program which allows for a much better foundation that 30 day programs. However, the facility can get a bit crowded, the food isn't the most nutritious or plentiful, they don't provide laundry soap and the beds need to be replaced.

Can't believe this place is still in the treatment business. It has poorly trained staff and extremely high turnover. The detox is right next to a liquor store, zero organization. Send your loved one somewhere else or do your research first.

Hi Roy, Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. I’m sorry to hear that you might have had a poor experience, however I am wondering if this review was left on the correct facility. The reason I say that is because I am not aware of any liquor store next to our detox facility. While we certainly are not perfect, we have worked hard to provide quality treatment to thousands of people over the past 21 years. If there is anything we can do to be of assistance to you in your recovery journey, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly.

I am posting this not to slander but honestly hope someone will read this and think twice. there are much better facilities out there.. From the start I have had problems with this place. I have battled and battled with this place since day one. Most of the counselors barely have associates degrees and groups were a joke. The place was dirty...They are all about their money and absolutely nothing more...I don't want to see another soul waste their money and go through what I and a few others close to me have had to go through with this place. It honestly makes me sick.

I attended His House in 2013, aside from a few staff members who were great, a majority were horrible. The facility was filthy, unorganized, and the detox meds were handed out by un qualified staff. The patients pretty much did as they please with little consequence. Now, two years later...I'm still fighting with his house about my bill. They messed up my bill because His House is unorganized and money is there main concern. The men's facility is like a prison yard, no group trips, no pool, no massages, all that stuff on the website is from the women's facility. I'm saying this because if you want a quality treatment facility, look elsewhere. I did learn a lot here, but it is far from a secure, safe facility, it can work if you want it to, but don't count on his house to guarantee successful treatment Or help you after you leave when they messed up your insurance claim. Loved the cook, and 2 staff were great, caring, and decent people.
