About Us

Humboldt Recovery Center is the largest and oldest licensed and certified residential substance abuse treatment facility on the California North Coast. Since our founding in 1972, we have dedicated ourselves to providing effective treatment and recovery services to men and women who wish to develop meaningful, drug-free lifestyles.

★    We are a scientifically-based, specialized, phased, therapeutic community derived from the experiences and insights we have gained from nearly 40 years of continuous service.

★    We are licensed and certified by the State of California’s Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs.

★    We have extensive experience in working with local Native American Tribes.

★    We have a long standing history of offering and providing alternative methods to incarceration.

★    We have an alumni association of over 3,000 graduates, including several with decades of recovery.


Length of Program

    The residential treatment program varies in length from 90 to 180 days and includes monitored social re-entry. Upon completion of the residential program our clients are enrolled in our after care program for continued support and assistance. Aftercare groups are available to anyone who has completed our residential program. They have proved very helpful in the lives of many of our program graduates.
