Located in San Juan Capistrano, Calif., Sheer Recovery is a luxury treatment center that offers a range of services to individuals struggling with addiction, mental health disorders, or co-occurring disorders. It offers detox, outpatient programs, partial hospitalization programs, intensive outpatient treatment, and residential treatment, which about 38 percent of all treatment facilities in California offer.


According to Sheer Recovery’s website, it utilizes pharmacogenomics, which is a field of medicine that screens an individual’s DNA to determine what drug and dosing is appropriate. With this testing, each client receives an individualized treatment program and report with their genetic test results.

The first phase of treatment is detox and residential stabilization, and treatment begins with a toxicology report. Following the report, the treatment team works with clients to create a customized detox plan that usually ranges between five to 10 days. This phase addresses both the physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms. Once clients are finished with detox, they work with case managers and start group works. The detox and residential process is between seven and 30 days.

Phase two is partial hospitalization (PHP) and intensive outpatient programs (IOP) care. During this phase, clients attend outside 12-step meetings, and programming may include life skills such as resume building and aftercare planning. Clients also visit with family and sponsors in this phase, which is typically 30 to 90 days long.

The last phase, Phase Three, is outpatient programs. This is only recommended once clients finish at least 90 days of treatment. In outpatient treatment, individuals create discharge plans and return to work, schools, family, and other responsibilities. This phase is typically 90 to 180 days.

Sheer Recovery Reviews

I cannot recommend Sheer Recovery enough. Thanks to the staff at Sheer, my Mom has been sober for 3 years after 20+ years of battling addiction to prescription drugs. Our family will forever be grateful for everything they did for her and our family. They took care of HER not just the addiction. They helped her get sober, learn to deal with the past traumas that contributed to her addiction, how to cope with issues moving forward and also advised our family what we could do while she was gone to be more prepared for when she came home. As far as family care - the client is their main concern, but they kept in touch, made sure we understood the process and made sure that we were comfortable with her being there. We are forever grateful for everyone at Sheer.
Sheer helped me change my life. They have a gifted team that really cares. THiS IS NOT A FACTORY! The program of recovery Sheer helps you build is tailored to your needs. They helped me save my life. I not only lost the craving for my drug, but the tools to stay sober. I worked hard at my recovery and they stood behind me all the way. If you want to change your life, Sheer can show you how. When I was debating, one of the Sheer leadership with whom I spoke described this opportunity as "a gift." Man was he right, its the gift of life for me! Staff, staff, staff! These people know addiction and care so much. They will help you achieve things you thought impossible. My family lives across the country, so I wasn't able to see them face-to-face during recovery. I knew that going in, but you may want to consider how important that is to you, before you choose a treatment location.
Sheer Recovery offers great treatment, this program offers exceptional care. The staff genuinely cares about each individual. I am not aware of any facility weakness.
This is a great treatment center, the staff is kind and knowledgeable.
