Acute Care and/or Chemical Dependency Experience Preferred
The Hemet Valley Recovery Center is dedicated to the effective treatment of the disease of addiction. We will provide an environment of positive change that promotes a chemical free lifestyle and establishes community and family relationships that support this lifestyle.
Physicians for Healthy Hospitals and Addiction Medicine Services Inc. saw the need for a chemical dependency treatment center that was hospital-based and able to assist patients in all aspects of their care, from acute medical detoxification through rehabilitation and aftercare. Opening in 2001, the center has drawn a professional staff that is second to none in experience and quality and has gained the reputation as a facility able to succeed in the treatment of difficult and complex cases. Located in Southern California, Hemet is between Palm Springs to the east and Riverside to the west. Nestled at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains, Hemet is large enough to support a regional medical center and small enough to provide a confidential environment for treatment.
