Reflections Recovery Center Fountain Valley California

Where the long road ends and the journey begins… We engage in the unity of Mind, Body, & Spirit.


Reflections Recovery Center provides sober-living services coupled with detox and intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment for adult men and women who are struggling with substance abuse. The facility has multiple sober living locations in Southern California, including this facility on a tree-lined street in suburban Fountain Valley. Treatment services are provided in nearby Costa Mesa, and clients are required to attend treatment at Reflections to participate in sober living.


The IOP meets for six hours a week on weekday mornings, afternoons, or evenings, to suit a variety of schedules.

Treatment is based on the 12-Steps, supplemented by cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT); motivational interviewing (MI); group therapy; individual case management; education on addiction, life skills, health and wellness, and relationships; and recreational activities such as yoga and surf therapy. A three-day family workshop includes education and family therapy.

There’s dedicated treatment for clients withdrawing from opiates; a specialized Christian recovery track involving church attendance, Bible study and scripture readings, and personal mentorship; and a dedicated mental health program for clients with co-occurring addiction and mental health disorders.


Reflections Recovery Center offers a staff-to-client ratio of 1:4. Staff includes a certified addiction counselor and case managers, and many staff are themselves in long-term recovery. The facility’s website also refers to a psychiatrist who assists with withdrawal and medications, though these services appear to be provided on a contract basis; the facility’s website does not list any medical professionals on the core staff.

A staffer at the Fountain Valley facility who was polled by indicated that the center had one member of mental health staff and no medical staff. They gave the facility five out of five stars for the experience levels of its mental health and addiction staff.


The sober living homes at Reflections are gender-specific and staffed with a house manager to ensure all house rules are followed — including, of course, abstinence from drugs and alcohol. In addition, random drug tests are administered on a regular basis. Pictures published on the facility’s website show comfortable, family-style homes with gardens and shared bedrooms; at least one home also has an outdoor pool.

In addition to operating its own sober-living facility, Reflections Recovery Center contracts with other approved local sober-living centers.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY has not yet received any reviews directly from alumni of this facility, and secondary sites yielded just three reviews: a two-star rating and two five-star ratings, all left on Google.[1] “I’ve had a lot of trouble staying clean but their personalized plan has treated me better than any I’ve tried. Its been 1 year, and I’m clean:)!” wrote five-star reviewer H.D., in one of the few pieces of accompanying commentary.


The single staffer polled by to date would recommend this facility. “The case managers are good people, and they care about their clients,” the reviewer wrote, giving the facility four stars for the overall quality of its care, and three stars for its honesty and its willingness to put clients’ interests first. The reviewer cited a change in management as the facility’s only weak point.

“Having the opportunity to help others through my own experience has been one of the most rewarding experience of my life,” another anonymous staffer wrote on — though they also cited “change of ownership” as a weakness of the facility.[2]


Treatments typically costs $350/day and $10,500/month, but fees are negotiable. The center accepts insurance, and offers some financial aid. The single individual polled by to date, a former staffer, gave the center four out of five stars for the fairness of its price point.
