“Laguna View Detox was an amazing experience. The staff is patient, caring, and go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. They really work with you and your needs to best set you up for success. It was a blessing to have found this place and Jennifer, who handles admissions, could not have been more helpful.

Michael Smith

“Beyond grateful for my experience at Laguna View. Staff is very professional but also comforting at the same time which i've noticed is difficult to find. I was of course petrified of the journey ahead but the staff helped me realize that I have a full life ahead of anything I want it to be. Highly recommended for anyone's start to sobriety.“

Chris Leonzio

“integrity .. we were treated as humans, not numbers... At the drop of a hat anything you need(well you get it ) was to you as quick as they could... If you or someone you know is struggling, pick up the phone now..ask for J-Lo... she’s pretty amazing... p.s... might wanna take a look at the YouTube video... it will convince you to go, unless you hate mansions and ocean views.“


“I can’t express enough how amazing this place is! The staff is by far the most loving and helpful people I have come across in treatment. I would recommend this place to anyone seeking help with alcohol and substance abuse problems. The view of Laguna Beach helped me to stay in a place of serenity and gratitude while I got help with the underlying issues of my restless, and discontent thoughts. I have stayed in many different programs on my journey to get sober and this was the place that I was able to achieve lasting sobriety.“

Luke Latham

"LVD is head and shoulders above all the other detox facilities that I visit on a weekly basis. I run groups in treatment and I always enjoy coming to this beautiful location with it's caring, vibrant staff and next level views of the Pacific Ocean.“
