There is NO air conditioning in the male and some of the female housing. We have had heat waves and they have not cared enough, let alone for our pets, to have AC. They pack people into baking hot hou...


words cannot express my gratitude for morning side recovery, but i will do my best. i entered morningside 2 years ago after finishing a 30 day program. i thought i was "done" with aftercare, but thank...


it's a good place.


The structure of Morning Side was very good. It gave patients the freedom to live in housing instead of a locked down medical facility. The amount of groups and choices given is outstanding.


This place really helped me to look at not just my disease but at myself and helped me to start to repair the things that were broken inside


It was a great treatment an I loved it!!


Second best treatment facility I have attended


A true dual diagnosis treatment experience. Licensed clinicians offer CBT, DBT, EMDR therapies to help people with bipolar, depression, anxiety, and more.


Clients are treated with respect and dignity at Morningside Recovery. The highest standard in recovery treatment are priority, as are each clients' well-being.


Morningside provided the right balance of structure and freedom for my treatment needs.


Good start


Overall beneficial


Great treatment program, fun activities


I was given the tools and resources to aid in my recovery. I grabbed on to every piece of information to turn my life around and learn to live and love a life clean and sober.


I would go back


Good support


Great therapy programs


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 s...


Morningside Recovery is all about client care and focus on individualized treatment plans. They try to meet the client were they are and provide aftercare.


Ok but I don�t think I got enough time with the actual doctor


Best experience of my life! Great people great staff! Awesome fun activities each Saturday to participate in as a whole group!


Grateful for Morningside, but not a huge fan of the direction they are going in.


It was okay, could have been improvements with certain staff and communication.


Great best thing I ever did. I am just concerned that I will have to pay out of pocket when they specifically said I didn�t have to worry about paying a dime.


There is Always room for improvement. I believe the housing staff and clinical staff really care about their clients.


Good treatment, amenities, and food


Wonderful and caring staff. Beautiful facility & I loved the freedom. Been sober since I discharged 2 years ago.


I believe the clients received great care that is tailored to the Client's needs.


It was fine until new management took over and ruined the whole program


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. ...


This place is for folks coming out of Chino with heroin issues. Good luck to anyone who has never been in prison.


It was a great place to receive treatment and I've been clean since then


Terminated treatment due to ins. Life happened. They provide the tools it up to me to pick the right ones and use tjem


Well worth the money


great experience


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 goo...


I loved it, they went above and beyond to help me. They scholarshiped me in when I had no insurance. I love how the groups were based on what I needed as an individual, it was a great experience.


Was everything I truly needed to finally achieve sobriety


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 k...


Treated me with respect. Staff was amazing. I wish I could return to deal with mental issues. I love them.


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 ki...


i feel our team gives it 110% and they go above and beyond to make sure the clients needs are met and they get they receive the treatment that is needed and more


I liked that you are given a budget to buy your own food by doing so it teaches meal planning and how to function better in the real world


I received quality treatment and I liked the accomadations


It�s a great place to be but only if you want it to work, no facility will work if you don�t want the help!! Overall staff is great and it works if you work it...


Really fun and learned a lot.


It was OK

I went here for a long time but the only part that significantly helped me was my therapist

Enjoyed the connectivity and family involvement. I would recommend this facility to others.


There is no shame in coming back and getting help. We are very welcoming. Client care and family involvement are strengths of Morningside Recovery.


There is extended care.


Open model. Over 55 different groups/therapies a week, plus individual therapy twice a week.


I've learned a lot about myself here and I have benefited from the groups and individual therapy.


Morningside is a great place, they have individualized treatment programming, great groups, and staff who truly cares. This facility saved my life.


Family owned center that places an emphasis on the unique needs of each client. Clients come from all over to find a life in recovery. Clients find what works for them here. There is an adventure, aca...

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 ru...

Areas of Focus
Client & Family Support Groups

Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

Family Program

Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
