Treatment Insights

Reunion is Practical Recovery’s co-ed treatment program for alcohol and drug addiction. The facility offers a full continuum of care, including residential rehab, sober living and outpatient services, and provides clients with an alternative to the traditional 12-Step model of care. Treatment utilizes a broad range of psychotherapeutic and holistic modalities designed to restore the physical, social and emotional well-being of each client. A high staff-to-client ratio and individualized treatment plans allow individuals to confront the underlying issues responsible for their addiction and change negative thinking and problematic behavior patterns.

If twelve step programs aren't for you, this might be the answer. I recommend it without reservation. While its not the most luxurious of all rehabs, Reunion is very comfortable and tasteful. I'd rath...


I was overwhelmed with the skills and thoroughness of the staff and the accommodations. It was my 15th treatment center. With what I learned there, I know why the other 14 didn't work.

Areas of Focus
Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

Medical Detoxification

Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

    Ashley Adams, MA, MFTI - Assistant Clinical Director

    Ms. Adams has been working in addiction treatment and recovery for 4 years and started at Practical Recovery before they opened Reunion in 2011. She holds a master’s degree from Alliant International University in Marriage and Family Therapy. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree from San Diego State University in Sociology and Psychology. For Ashley, the most profound aspect of addiction treatment is focusing on the dynamics of family and couple relationships. During her first traineeship she worked with individuals who experienced severe trauma, including sexual assault and domestic violence. This was a powerful training period for Ashley, where she learned a great deal about resiliency. In addition to her work in substance abuse treatment and trauma, she also has a strong interest in eating disorders, including awareness and prevention. She interned at an eating disorders program in San Diego for two years and was a facilitator for ANAD (Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders). She has also done clinical work and cultural competency trainings abroad and loves to travel any chance she gets. Ashley has completed all 3,000 pre-licensing hours and is currently awaiting approval to take the MFT licensing exam.
