We provide support, hope and healing so individuals can begin their recovery journey and rebuild their lives.

Jason’s Retreat, a men’s center, and Capistrano Community for Women offer safe and nurturing residential environments in which men and women can begin the process of recovery from addiction to alcohol and/or drugs. While providing an atmosphere of caring, with life’s basic necessities provided, we hope to give clients an opportunity to change long-entrenched attitudes and belief systems, and rebuild lives damaged by addiction. Our programs offer 12-Step based Social Model treatment that emphasizes individual responsibility and accountability. We believe that homelessness and criminal behavior flow directly from addiction, and therefore hope to improve our community by assisting our clients to become productive, useful citizens.
