We are a Christian organization creating a world where addiction recovery is treated with integrity, compassion, and proven methods for lasting whole-person recovery.
“This industry is in dire need of an ethical, innovative, compassionate approach to treatment. And people struggling with addiction need to be able to trust that recovery is possible.”

Our skilled professionals provide treatment modalities that are based on scientific evidence along with clinical expertise, while taking into account patient characteristics, culture and preferences. We specialize in treating adults struggling with co-occurring disorders and dual addictions, as well as those who may benefit from a strong relapse-prevention curriculum. We emphasize the spiritual aspects of recovery in our Christian 12-Step program. And, we provide all of this in completely gender-separate environments.
Clients enter our treatment programs with the knowledge that we have been providing outstanding treatment for over two decades and can be further comforted by our excellent credentials. Covenant Hills has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and maintains the highest accreditation from CARF International, the primary accreditation agency for rehabilitative treatment. Our treatment facilities are state licensed and accredited, and we are affiliated with the America Association of Christian Counselors.
Whatever your needs, we are committed to assisting anyone seeking help for alcohol or drug addiction, or any other addictive problem.

We are here to help regardless of whether you enter the Covenant Hills’ program or choose another alternative.
Our history and experience speak for the individuals we help, every day.
What We Treat
Substance Use Disorder Treatment Programs
We believe that the drug rehabilitation process is most effective when a residential program is utilized after detox. With residential (or inpatient) treatment, you are able to recover in a structured environment with the full support of our expert staff. Our inpatient programs are gender-specific and allow men and women to recover separately in our residential houses in San Clemente and Dana Point, respectively.

If you meet the admissions criteria for our day treatment (also known as outpatient) program, you will follow the same structured schedule as your peers in our residential inpatient program. You will be permitted, however, to return home or to a sober living environment after the final scheduled activity for the day. Our day treatment program is only recommended for those who have a stable living situation.
Transitional Care is the second phase of our 60-day treatment program. In preparation for returning back to the world outside of rehab, Transitional Care shifts you from our highly structured Residential Treatment program to an Intensive Outpatient Program that is still supportive, but less structured. At this stage of the drug rehabilitation process, you will begin to return back to aspects of your everyday life. In this transitional environment, you can refine your recovery goals and continue to address lingering damage.
Once you’ve graduated, you’re invited to join our Addiction Aftercare program. As a part of our holistic treatment approach, aftercare is recommended if you require additional support after you have left our treatment center. Here, you’ll engage in practical instruction, relapse prevention instruction, interactive process sessions, group therapy, and more.
At Covenant Hills, we use a 60-day treatment model where you progress from a highly-structured Inpatient environment under 24-hour supervision to a less structured, transitional setting.
Through our multi-disciplinary treatment approach, Covenant Hills offers gender-separate/specific programming that affords our clients an environment of safety and openness that is essential in the treatment process.
All of our treatment programs take a comprehensive approach to helping you heal from addiction and dual diagnosis disorders. All our treatment programs include the following:
Designed to do more than just help drug and alcohol addicts safely and successfully get clean, Covenant Hills delivers a traditional 12-step approach to addiction treatment that will help you dismantle your substance abuse problem.
Our 12-step recovery program helps individuals:
- Turn control over to a higher power
- Admit to the higher power, themselves, and another individual the wrongs done
- Accept help from the higher power to correct any shortcomings in their character
- Ask the higher power to remove those shortcomings
- Make a list of wrongs done to others and be willing to make amends for those wrongs
- Contact individuals who have been hurt, unless doing so would harm the individual
- Continue to self-monitor thoughts, actions and beliefs and admit when one is wrong
- Pursue understanding and connection with the higher power through prayer and meditation
- Communicate the message of the 12-Steps to those in need
While the 12-step treatment program is not easy and requires steadfast commitment, it will quickly evolve into some of the most meaningful and necessary work you can do in your life.
