About Sierra by the Sea

COVID-19 Update (April 4, 2020): Sierra by the Sea is offering telehealth services for communication with loved ones, but no longer allowing on-site visitors at this time. Staff are participating in continuous educational training related to COVID-19, including the completion of infection prevention and control training. All staff and clients are participating in temperature and symptom screening protocols. Personal protective equipment items are stocked and properly stored ready for use. Additional cleaning services have been contracted and implemented. Learn more on how Sierra by the Sea is taking protective measures to help keep clients safe and healthy.

The Sierra by the Sea treatment network has been helping men and women defeat addictions to substances and overcome co-occurring mental health conditions for over 25 years.

Comprehensive Services

From detoxification through long-term aftercare support, Sierra by the Sea is prepared to provide the type and level of care that is best suited to your needs or to those of your loved one. Our full scope of services ensures that no one will ever be forced to adapt their personal goals to fit a one-size-fits-all treatment experience.

Instead, men and women who heal with us only participate in therapies and related activities that have been specifically selected due to their clinical effectiveness and their relevance to the individual’s strengths, needs, and objectives.

Gender-Specific Care

At Sierra by the Sea, we are proud to have amassed decades of experience and established several successful treatment centers. But we understand these accomplishments would be meaningless if we could not use them to provide personalized care that meets the specific needs of each new person who turns to us for help.

As our network has expanded, our focus was never on getting bigger, but always on getting better. We established The Rose as a safe and supportive environment where women can heal from addiction and co-occurring issues. We launched The Landing as a place where men can receive care in a manner that was designed specifically for them. And we added Sunrise Recovery Ranch to provide an innovative blend of gender-specific treatment with the best elements of coeducational recovery.

Experienced Professionals

Our values and principles are essential to the continued success of Sierra by the Sea, but the heart and soul of our programs are the experienced and dedicated professionals who so admirably help individuals and families in crisis.

The men and women who staff our programs were selected both for their skills and for their commitment to compassionate personalized service. Many of the therapists, counselors, and other professionals at Sierra by the Sea are in recovery themselves, and every member of our staff possesses significant training along with unique insights into the challenges of chemical dependency and the power of effective treatment.

Lifelong Support

When you enroll in treatment at Sierra by the Sea, you do not become a client or a patient. Instead, you become a member of the Sierra by the Sea family and a valued participant in the international community of recovery.

While you may take your first steps along the path of recovery at one of our centers, our thorough discharge planning process, vibrant alumni network, and other services ensure that we will continue to walk with you long after you have transitioned out of treatment and returned home.
