Yes, the Center prescribes medications such as Suboxone to heroin addicts to help them get through detoxification.

Does the Center allow clients to take other prescription medications?

Yes. Clients who are on prescribed medications from their psychiatrist, such as pain meds or medications to treat bipolar disorder, are able to continue taking these medications (provided, of course, they are using them correctly). If medications need adjusting, Dr. Headrick, joins the residents at the facility almost every night. He can write a customized prescription, and our on-site nurse can call the prescription in to our pharmacist and have the revised medications available in a matter of hours.

Will the client go on any outings?

Yes. Those participating in our Residential Treatment Program go on a half-day outing every weekend. Because the Program is limited to just six people, we are able to let the group decide on each week’s destination. Popular choices include the San Diego Zoo, the San Diego Wild Animal Park, shopping malls, movies, beaches, hiking, and more. In addition, every Sunday morning Dr. Headrick takes those who are interested to a nearby Spiritual Center with him.

The meals at Tres Vistas Recovery, which are prepared by our in-house Executive Chef, are all of the above as well as incredibly delicious.

Yes. Francisco, our chef, is also a licensed nutritionist. He creates a customized nutrition plan for each resident, and then implements it. Because many addicts are also poor eaters, one of our goals at Tres Vistas is to encourage clients to get passionate about eating healthy foods and taking healthy supplements that actually work.

What length of time does the client continue to receive counseling following the initial treatment phase? And is there is an extra cost?

Tres Vistas Recovery provides a one-year, no-cost program of support, counseling and referrals for those who successfully complete any program at Tres Vistas Recovery and remain in the area.
