Our mission is to not only provide men suffering from Substance Use Disorder (SUD) an individualized framework needed to become sober but to empower them to stop living a life controlled by fear. Framework Recovery, located in Orange County, California, specializes in providing the full spectrum of outpatient addiction care, including partial hospitalization programming (PHP), intensive outpatient program (IOP), outpatient programming (OP), in conjunction with a sober living home (SLH). Framework Recovery provides individualized and targeted therapeutic interventions to stop the cycle of SUD through group therapy, individual therapy, family therapy, extensive monitoring, and peer recovery coaching.
