Testimonials

  • "We are very grateful to everyone at Morningside for bringing our daughter back to us."
  • "They made me realize that I'm a real person with other issues than being an "addict" or "gay" or whatever I labeled myself as. Everyone has many things special about them and Morningside is the place to be for love and compassion."
  • "I was here for 2 months and really got a better understanding of myself. I finally have new goals and aspirations of what I would like to accomplish in the future. For the first time, I am really excited about the future and my life!"
  • "I frequently look back on my experience here with gratitude as I don't know what my life would look like had I not went to treatment here. Through my experience here I've gathered the tools I needed to live my life successfully, something I could never seem to accomplish before."
  • "When I arrived at Morningside, I was totally shut down. I just wanted to get loaded and erase the world. I didn’t want to believe that I was in pain and seeking relief through drugs. After detox and joining Phase I, recovery sort of crept up on me. I found myself opening up and healing, little by little."
  • I want to thank Kevin for accepting my son when he had finally asked for help for his meth addiction. My son is a new person, he has done a 360 and is so far headed in a direction he had never gone before.
  • Morningside Recovery saved my life and helped me get back on track to sobriety. They offer individualized treatment plans and alternatives to the traditional 12 step recovery model
  • I was here for 2 months and really got a better understanding of myself. I finally have new goals and aspirations of what I would like to accomplish in the future. For the first time, I am really excited about the future and my life!

Out of the entire program, the most I got out of it was from my one on one therapy sessions with my therapist. When they fired a lot of staff, the whole program went to crap. The new director didn't seem to care about the clients whatsoever, and made it apparent that the only thing the facility valued was the insurance money it collected. I would not recommend Morningside to anyone seeking help with the way it turned out.

I feel as though the mission is very well supported by the patient facing staff. The core curriculum aligns with patient needs. The issue I had was with the former who informed me that I "Wasn't a good fit". After being in the program for over three weeks and being told by group facilitators and therapist that I was a model patient. I never failed a drug test or received any corrective action. When I asked why I wasn't a good fit I was told "I don't have to tell you why just that you need to get your things and go". This could have been detrimental to my recovery however, I was at a point in my recovery that there was no going backwards for me. I have heard this person is no longer with the facility which is very good. In matters of people's recovery insensitive and judgemental stances really have no place.

I was told that I was extended over over. The last extension was until October. On Sept 25th I was told my last day was the 29th. My insurance was fine I just needed to start paying 200.00 a week to keep living there. I killed ants on the back door and in the food cabinets with bug spray I paid for. But was shocked how I was treated with a week's notice. Last thing people would relapse 3 and 4 times and come back to Morning side. A friend I went to church with every Sunday died on a Monday.

I flew from Philadelphia to California to attend this for dual diagnostics treatment. I came for depression anxiety ptsd etc. At that time I also smoked pot. Because I �relapsed� on pot...I was kicked out of your program after maybe a week. In fairness I was trying to detox cold turkey off of benZos because I didn�t remember to renew prescription before I flew cross country and apparently even after almost a week in your program we couldn�t get me connected with a psychiatrist. This experience was terrible!!!!

Most of the drivers were power trippers, & could not think outside the box. There were people that were too young running the houses. Or that didn�t want to help the clients. There was no internet. They ran the weekend�s poorly. I heard they fired 90% of the people that I thought ran the clinical good.

This place is corrupt and only care about how deep your pockets are to pay for poor ole spoiled juniors rehab. If you're more worried about a place where you can bring your dog along to rehab with you, don't bother going.... you won't stay sober anyway. What's more important, taking fido to rehab with you, or saving your own life??

It's an upscale facility and they give you a lot of freedom which is good because lots of other treatment centers shelter you so much from the outside world that when you leave treatment it's a lot to handle all at once. Morningside allows you to be involved with the real world to a certain extent while still in treatment. It's an accommodating place, they take people's individual circumstances into account and make exceptions for people which is great, lots of individualized treatment. Has lots of awesome staff members. It's great that they give second chances to people if they relapse. I love that it has a 12-step alternative option and that they allow animals. It's biggest downside is that it's a huge place, lots of clients, you don't get that connected, family-like vibe like in other treatment centers.

Morningside is one of the best treatment centers i have been to. Their classes are extremely helpful because they focus on you as an individual rather than a whole. They also focus on teaching you skills you will need to have to maintain your sobriety once you are out. The alumni sessions are also very helpful.

I love Morningside recovery. Relapse was apart of my story after I got a year sober my first time rolling through MSR, but after a few months out, I knew where home was when I was ready to pick myself back up. My favorite part about MSR is the groups they have to offer. EMDR saved my life they have the best therapist ever. The staff is incredibly professional here and am so thankful and blessed to be alumni to such a loving family.

My experience at Morningside was life changing. Was it the end of my journey and struggle? No. What Morningside did give me however, was the strength to keep fighting it. I was broken, lost and close to giving up before walking through these doors. I have gained skills, mindsets and support here that I will carry on with me for the rest of my life. Morningside gave me hope towards my future.

I was at Morningside for four months. I had a pretty good time there until 30 clients including myself for discharged for insurance reasons and had three days to pack our stuff and find somewhere else to go completely unexpectedly. At the same time, they were moving everyone out of their houses with no notice as well. It was a very stressful end to my mostly positive stay. As others have said, this place is extremely money hungry. I overheard a meeting of the higher ups as it was going on right outside of my apartment where they were speaking of the clients as if we were animals. They don\'t care about the individual for the most part. I did encounter a few staff members that truly did care though. I have mixed feelings about Morningside but I would not recommend to a loved one.

Morning side is a great place but at the sober living houses they put you in there are aunts rats and the staff doesnt repremend the clients that are flithy and help bring more bugs into the houses and also they stuff you into little rooms and expect you to have enough room for all you\'re stuff they dont give you much to work with. Then they threaten you with sending you out to the tustin propertys if you\'re in costa mesa where you\'re out in no mans land so if you don\'t drive you\'re screwed, and have to take a bus or bike to get anywhere, If you complain to much about the way they got you living. I literally just had a aunt crawling on my hand on to my phone while writing this... and its not just me the other people here have complained about the bug issue n nothing gets done. So people that are clean have to live in filth.

I had been to four different treatment centers and now I also work at one (Beachside Recovery Center); Morningside was the best treatment center I have ever had any experience with in my opinion. I went there and got a high level of therapy from my therapist and I enjoyed the variation of groups that can be attended to throughout the day. Also, their gym is incredible and I was able to get back into working out which I still continue till today. I have a year and four months sober thanks to Morningside.

The owners of Morningside are money hungry. Their marketing scheme is to poach clients from other facilities. With complete disregard for their wellbeing, these clients are inticed into moving to California for money in their pocket and false promises. Solid and genuine recovery is built upon integrity. These people make me sick.

This place is all about their money, not your recovery...they'll tell you anything to get you in the door and the money rolling in. But the reality is far different. They don't hire enough staff to run their groups so they shuttle people off to AA meetings, no matter what their addiction or mental problems are. Their therapists are only comfortable with handling drug or alcohol issues; anything else seems beyond them. In my time there, they moved me to three different apartments in one week so they could stuff more clients in, and did so without any concern for how upsetting or unstablizing that was...I wasn't the only one having problems there...their living and clinical buildings are grubby and crowded. If you are having problems with addiction or mental issues, don't add to your problems by wasting your time or money here!
