When you don’t know where else to go for substance-abuse assistance, Capo by the Sea is a great choice. The facility is a one-stop shop in that detox and rehabilitation services are provided in-house. It’s very much an “executive level” facility, so it’s easier to get the help you need and it makes sense to do it locally. – H.S

I went through here and it saved my life 7 months later I’m still sober. Best decision I ever made to get on that plane! – P.D

This place is fraudulent, down to the urine tests. They are getting every penny they can from your insurance. It’s places like these that will bankrupt the cause! – L.T
