Program Curriculum at Our Treatment Centers in Orange County

At Yellowstone Recovery, we offer a wide range of evidence-based treatment options as part of our alcohol and drug addiction treatment programs. Both our inpatient and outpatient drug and alcohol rehab programs are designed to be an individualized journey with the right supports and resources at every step of the way.

The broad categories of our curriculum include:

  1. Experiential Therapy. As part of drug addiction programs, this treatment is focused on your past experiences and personal relationships. These methods can stimulate personal growth, calm anxiety, and develop skills that allow your emotional needs to be met.

  2. Family Support Group. This group therapy brings resolution to family conflicts and allows you to create strategies that will support long-term recovery and healing.

  3. Rehab for Women. Our drug and alcohol abuse programs are gender specific to address the unique needs of both men and women in recovery. These resources directly address those causes and triggers of addiction which are typically associated with being female.

  4. Rehab for Young Adults. Those between the ages of 18 and 24 also face unique obstacles and challenges. By offering age-specific drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs, Yellowstone can help these young people develop strategies for sobriety.

  5. Drug Rehab and Recovery. Drug abuse treatment programs like ours offer a comprehensive and customized treatment plan for you or your loved one’s successful recovery. In some cases, this may include supervised detox and medical support for co-occurring conditions.

  6. Alcohol Rehab and Recovery. Perhaps because alcohol is a legal substance for adults, it is one of the most common addictions and causes many preventable deaths in the United States each year. The best alcohol rehab programs address all aspects of alcoholism, which may include medications used for managing withdrawal and preventing relapse.


The addiction rehabilitation programs at Yellowstone Recovery can be inpatient treatment programs, intensive outpatient programs, or fully outpatient programs that can fit around work or family responsibilities. Each of our innovative drug and alcohol rehab programs can include these individual curriculum options that can address individual challenges and enhance your understanding of recovery.
