Above It All: Helping Torrance Residents Develop Life Skills and Planning to Beat Addiction and Maintain Sobriety
Addiction treatment is more than rehabilitation and being able to control your thirst for a particular substance while in treatment. To know how successful a rehabilitation program was, success is determined by how long the individual is able to maintain sobriety and remain drug or alcohol free. At our Above It All treatment center in Lake Arrowhead, California , we pride ourselves on our client’s success and does not claim treatment success unless our clients remain sober once they leave our facilities.
To accomplish this lifetime sobriety, we do not only treat the problem, we help our clients develop a foundation for success through the development of lifetime skills and planning. This is the reason why, we keep emphasizing that addiction treatment isn’t an overnight goal, it is a journey. This is also the reason why, our treatment program doesn’t end when you leave or treatment facilities. In fact, at the end of your stay with us, you are entering a new beginning; one where we will be by your side every step of the way.
Remaining sober once you leave the comfort of our treatment facility

However, once treated with us, you are returning home armed with the tools and strategies needed to prevent relapses and overcome all temptations life may throw your way; which in a nutshell, is what the Above It All, Life Skills and Planning Program is all about.

We encourage you to build a support group before you return home, because these people within your support group will be your rock. They will be your voice of reason and the ones who help you steer clear of negative thinking and temptations.
