Client Stories of Change

If you want to get sober and have a little bit of willingness to follow direction this place will get you there. There’s a great team of staff; always willing to help out. I couldn’t have ask for a better spot to say no to drugs. – Jacob O.

I would like to share my experience at Beginnings Treatment Center in Costa Mesa. I was at Beginnings from November 27th, 2021 to March 30th, 2022. It was the best thing I could have done for my recovery. I was welcomed by 3 people who immediately made me feel at home – Natalie, Katie and Johnny. The entire staff always seemed to have my best interest at heart. I was only going to stay for 1 month but because of my care team and efforts made by staff, I wanted to stay longer. I ended up staying 4 months and having nothing but good things to say about the entire center. I spent 3 of the 4 months in sober living and appreciated the structure of the program and sober living. I would recommend this treatment center to anyone in need of help with addiction or alcoholism. I will take away from Beginnings lots of education and friendships as I continue my recovery. – Brad W.

I can’t thank beginnings enough this treatment center saved my life I came here a broken man and 5 months later I feel so much freedom I wanna give a shout out to all the staff my therapist and case manager I felt like family here and never had to experience anything alone I found myself respect, but most of all I found my self worthy of Gods love again so if you’re looking for solutions this is your place love u all stay positive – Benny G.

I came here in 2020 for 4 months and stayed sober awhile. After a few more relapses, in 2022 I came back to this program because of the safety I discovered here and the family that I had built with the staff that works at Beginnings. This is where I have been able to build a solid foundation for my recovery and for myself. Natalie, Johnnie, Kathy, Katie, Camille, Dr. Soren, and many more have loved me despite my pushback and my mistakes along the way. They welcomed me back with open arms and no judgment. A special thank you to Miss Natalie for being my friend and role model and for getting me back here after a nasty relapse. This place and these people never gave up on me, even when I had given up on myself. I 10/10 recommend this program if you’re interested in building a rock-solid foundation for a new way of living and a new hope for life and yourself. I have been blessed with a true family, a family I’ve never had before. I love my family here and if not for them and this program I would still be out on the street running in the rat race. I love you guys and thank you.

I graduated from Beginnings on March 17th 2021 and have been clean for 505 days today!
I will forever be grateful for the personal treatment and therapy I received there. I was terrified of going to treatment but it’s the best decision I have ever made. The staff was very understanding of my issues and tailored my detox to my needs. The therapy I received after detox is the foundation of my continued sobriety. Thank you so much for being an integral part of my journey to living my best sober life!!!! – Janet H.
