Customized Treatment

Here at Chapters Capistrano we understand that every form of addiction and substance abuse is different. That is why we create specialized treatment plans to place clients in the best position to recover from addiction.

Relaxing Environment

Worried that being close to home will make it difficult to overcome addiction to drugs or alcohol? Chapters Capistrano is located in a quiet, peaceful, and relaxing location that will allow anyone the chance to get away and focus on their recovery.

Experienced Staff Members

Our staff consists of an experienced group of doctors, therapists, nurses, and so much more. We can provide you the tools to treat substance abuse and create a long-term recovery.

Large Insurance Network

Getting the treatment you need to fight addiction should never come down to finances, but it is sometimes a challenge. That is why we make a point to accept most health insurance plans, which can help reduce or eliminate the cost of treatment.



“My experience at Chapters Capistrano was first rate and very personalized to my needs. The staff was unbelievably attentive and truly cared about the patients. From the person who got me admitted to the staff, therapists and nurses I was given excellent care. It has given me a new outlook I hadn’t had prior to going. All the horror stories I had read about rehab could not have been farther from the truth at Chapters Capistrano. It is a small facility so every patient receives excellent interpersonal care emotionally, physically and mentally. I am grateful for the day I checked in.


The Chapters Capistrano rehab facility has given me positive experience. The employees truly do care for their patients. During my time, I felt as though I was treated as a priority. When I addressed my needs they were met without hesitation or question. The staff empathized with my situation and gave me a warm welcome when I arrived. The center went above and beyond in their service to ensure my time here was both enjoyable and effective.-


I wasn’t in the best condition – or in any position – to pick and choose when I entered Chapters Capistrano, but I think I’m lucky I did. They treated me well during detox, which was less painful than past experience led me to hope. They made sure I took therapy and got exercise, but allowed me privacy when I needed it and respected my wishes. I don’t think I truly appreciated the scenery or facilities until late in my stay, but I think they helped me recover anyway. I hope I never need rehab again – and the relapse prevention program gives me hope that I won’t, that I know better how to cope – but if I do, I hope it’s somewhere at least as kind and helpful as Chapters.


I had a wonderful experience here at Chapters Capistrano. Very caring staff, amazing chefs, and wonderful medical team. I felt right at home. Recovery is possible here!
