Looking for a Rancho Santa Margarita Rehab?


Master-planned community Rancho Santa Margarita (RSM) is one of Orange County’s youngest cities. What was once part of the massive ranch estate, the community began developing itself on the Plano Trabuco in the late 80s and early 90s.



Master-planned community Rancho Santa Margarita (RSM) is one of Orange County’s youngest cities. What was once part of the massive ranch estate, the community began developing itself on the Plano Trabuco in the late 80s and early 90s.


It borders the County’s biggest, oldest, and most expensive guard-gated private master-planned community Coto de Caza. Coto de Caza began development as a hunting lodge in 1968 but finished as a grand community surrounded by Wagon Wheel Canyon.

As the small town strived for cityhood, Rancho Santa Margarita had plans to be an “Urban Village.” It claims to offer the best of two worlds: the benefits of a small city with the quality of life that comes with a small village.

It’s a quiet and peaceful place. Through contracted law enforcement, the community has a relatively low crime rate. However, no Orange County community is without drug use. According to the OC Health Care Agency, Rancho Santa Margarita sees about 25 opioid overdoses a year. Their study was done from the years 2010 to 2015, and numbers rose every year. Sadly, it seems the safe and prosperous community is becoming victim to the Orange County opioid plague.

Because of its small village environment, Rancho Santa Margarita doesn’t have as many residential treatment programs for substance abuse addiction. Those living within the town’s borders seeking drug and alcohol treatment are left to find a rehab facility in neighboring cities.

Thankfully, SoCal Sunrise has top-rated addiction treatment in rehabs that serve Rancho Santa Margarita. Our organization has locations in two nearby cities — Laguna Niguel and Mission Viejo.


SoCal Sunrise offers drug and alcohol addiction treatment for the residents of RSM. We have reliable, evidence-based therapies and FDA approved medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for alcohol and drug addiction.

Our residential addiction treatment centers servicing Santa Margarita offers medication-assisted detox and rehabilitation. We follow the standardized substance use disorder treatment model for a wide range of drug addictions including, but not limited to, alcohol, amphetamines, opioids, cocaine, and benzodiazepines.

In addition to the standard proven treatment, we have adopted leading evidence-based holistic treatment methods. These holistic treatments set us apart from your average addiction treatment facility.

Our comprehensive approach treats addiction, much like other mental illnesses — because it is one. Sometimes we find a dual diagnosis of co-occurring disorders with our substance use disorder patients. By identifying other diseases and genuinely understanding our patients, we can target and heal the underlying causes of addiction.

Our inpatient program includes:

  • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
  • Couples Counseling
  • Guided Meditation
  • Creative arts therapies
  • Medication-Assisted Treatment
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Mind-Body Therapies
  • Yoga and Fitness
  • Group therapy, outings, and activities
  • Family Counseling
  • Aromatherapy and Reiki
  • Wholesome and Healthy Diets


SoCal Sunrise serves RSM locals with the latest in proven and evidence-based detox methods to help you through the detox process of any drug. Each substance has particular withdrawal symptoms and we’ve dealt with a long list of them. Whether it’s using medications to ease withdrawals or providing amenities, SoCal Sunrise addiction specialists have your back.

Most long-term recoveries from addiction have a strong foundation rooted in their early stages of sobriety. Though detoxifying the body of drugs and other toxins is just the beginning, it sets the stage for sustained success.

Addicts know by experience how difficult the detox process is. Unfortunately, that discomfort is a reality any way you look at it. However, our caring experts are there 24 hours a day, helping through every symptom and condition of the process.
Having our clinicians present throughout the entire detox period allows patients to avoid the risk of severe health complications caused by drug or alcohol withdrawal.


Substance use disorders, also known as drug addictions, come in many forms. The different drugs associated with them affect a person’s behaviors and brain chemistry in varying ways. The most noticeable change in behavior is the inability to control substance abuse, though the other behavioral changes that come with that can be damaging as well.

We often think of drug addiction correlating with illicit drug use with things like heroin or meth. However, prescription drugs can also lead to substance use disorders. Any drug with euphoria has a heightened risk for addiction, and we commonly see this in pain killers and anxiety medication.

Along with Orange County’s opioid epidemic, a rise in benzodiazepine prescriptions has led to addiction as well. Benzos are among the most prescribed drug in the U.S., especially in affluent populations of OC. Unfortunately, abusing and misusing these medications can worsen the conditions they were intended to treat.

To treat and improve the livelihood of our patients, we help take their minds off their substances of abuse and treat related conditions. Because of how a drug can restructure the brain’s chemistry over time, it can be merited to substitute addictive problematic drugs for milder ones.


We see this most notably with opioid addictions that create strong addictive habits. MAT medicines such as Suboxone can ease the mind of an addict while avoiding the highly euphoric effects of opioids like heroin. As the user gets used to a life without extremely euphoric highs, they can transition to living without them altogether. This greatly decreases the chance of relapse.

Another benefit they serve is blocking euphoria even if an addict does relapse. This can also be seen with Naltrexone for alcohol use disorders.

These approaches, with our holistic mind and body rejuvenating, give our patients a high recovery rate. The traditional methods are scientifically proven to lower cravings and help through detox, but it’s the overall well-being of a person that helps them sustain sobriety.

Our holistic approach is what makes us better than competing OC rehabs. We truly believe that it gives our patients a better foundation for recovery because we’ve seen it work.


SoCal Sunrise Recovery Centers serve the Rancho Santa Margarita public. Our close-by locations are beautiful, and we often travel to beautiful landmarks of the surrounding region. Many of our patients are from Orange County, though we have had citizens from all over the United States come to us for the top-regarded holistic approach we have.

Another noticeable difference between us and other drug rehabs is the charming premises where the inpatient rehab is done. Our owner self-designed the interiors and exteriors of the buildings to provide an ambiance that promotes healing.

Our caring addiction treatment specialists are one of a kind, seeing addiction as the mental health condition it is. We’re passionate about freeing those addicted to drugs and alcohol from the chains of their addiction. It’s not just a job.

We’re here to give you the care you need in your life now and throughout the future beyond your stay. Please, give us a call so we can further discuss our plans to get you back on track!
