Benefits of Traveling Out of State for Addiction Treatment


Traveling out of state to treat addiction allows you or your loved one the opportunity to be separated from old neighborhoods, drug dealers, destructive habits and circumstances, which enable drinking or drug use. Traveling out of state for treatment is often recommended as a necessary step for success; therefore, it is an important decision in the recovery process.

Why Travel for Treatment?

Treatment options range from long-term inpatient therapy to short-term outpatient therapy and many options in between.[i] It is always best to choose a treatment setting that fits your unique needs to give you the best chance at recovery. You may consider nutritional components, prescription medication therapy, life skills education and more.[ii] Once you find the best options for you, you may discover that it is a good idea for you to travel for your treatment, too.

Benefits of traveling for treatment include the following:

  • Separate yourself from negative influences and relationships
  • Remove yourself from known triggers
  • Avoid distractions and focus solely on recovery
  • Discover superior programs available outside your local area
  • Recover in a new city with a healthy support system
  • Select a location and climate that promotes wellness

Dear Friends,

On November 10, 2018, the Woolsey Fire destroyed The Canyon at Peace Park’s treatment facility. At this time, The Canyon at Peace Park is not accepting patients for any services. We arranged for the safe and seamless discharge or transition of all patients when we were forced to evacuate due to the fire.

For over 12 years, The Canyon at Peace Park has been privileged to provide integrated treatment for addiction and co-occurring disorders to patients across the nation. Our main focus has always been on our patients and their success. We have served hundreds of patients and their families, providing exclusive treatment and services for a wide range of behavioral health and addiction issues.

Our trained, compassionate staff has been committed to delivering quality patient care with dignity and respect, with the goal of helping our patients return to their communities as healthier individuals. We are extremely proud of the sacrifices of those who worked every day, often under challenging circumstances, to positively impact our patients’ lives.

We thank the physicians and staff for their expertise and dedication in providing high quality, compassionate treatment and care to the patients we have served.

We look forward to carrying on The Canyon at Peace Park’s legacy through our outpatient locations in Santa Monica and Encino. Foundations Recovery Network also has other residential and outpatient facilities around the country offering the same high quality of service you’ve come to expect from us.
