Addiction is a disease of the brain in which an individual compulsively uses substances even when that use is clearly detrimental to their lives. When someone is suffering from addiction, they feel an almost single-minded intensity toward the substance. The addiction ends up taking over their life as they spend more and more of their time finding and using the substance.
Over time, the individual will develop a tolerance for the substance and it will take more of the substance to achieve the desired effect. People begin using substances for a variety of reasons: curiosity, stress relief, performance enhancing, or just to feel better.

Why choose Asana Recovery as your treatment facility?
Being a family owned and operated business allows us to offer a unique approach that you won’t find at any other facility. Our full-service approach to your recovery, coupled with our core values and our exceptional staff create a recovery environment that has proven successful for hundreds of clients. We know that you have a variety of options for your recovery treatment and we commit to providing exceptional care in a healing environment. Detox, residential and outpatient as a full circle approach.
Recovery is a process. Most patients will need to work through all three steps of the recovery process, from detox, to residential treatment, to outpatient treatment. When you arrive at our Orange County residential facility, you will enter a recovery process that starts with removing your dependence on drugs, moves into understanding the reasons why you began abusing drugs, and ends with a gradual re-entry into your daily life through outpatient treatment. This three-step approach has been proven to provide the best foundation for long term recovery from substance abuse.
The teamwork that serves as one of our core values begins with your dedicated care team. We have a trifecta of trained professionals ready to walk with you on your recovery journey from the moment you enter our doors. Each member of our team is committed to the meaningful and important mission of helping you achieve lasting sobriety. Our medical staff will work with you to tailor a treatment plan that takes into account other conditions and medications you arrive with. They will determine at your arrival whether or not medical detox (a detox that requires the assistance of medication for the patient’s safety) is needed and if it is, they will supervise your detox closely.
Our trained therapists will help you identify the underlying causes of your addiction. Through group and individual therapies, as well as some more creative therapy outlets, our therapists will allow you a safe space in which to explore your past, your emotions and your relationships to identify points where healing can begin.
Our drug counselors are the ones who will support you in the roughest times. Those times when it feels too hard and you want to throw in the towel.
Our trained, compassionate counselors understand your journey. Many of them have been through that journey themselves and have chosen this work so that they can pay it forward to others. Having a counselor who has literally walked the same path you are walking goes a long way towards making that much needed connection to the world outside of addiction.
At all three levels, medical, therapeutic, and counseling, our staff is here for you and will fight for you, even when you find it hard to fight for yourself.
One of the most unique things about treatment at Asana Recovery is the commitment we show to our core values in the course of treatment. The “Asana Way” is the core principle by which we at Asana Recovery work and live. At the center of the “Asana Way” are our core values of gratitude, mindfulness, teamwork, stewardship and creativity. These five values underlie every treatment we provide.
As you can see, these core values provide an unparalleled recovery experience that you won’t find in any other treatment facility.
