To Baja Rehab and Adam, This place is one I was terrified to go to, to get the help I needed, but I was more terrified of not going and putting in the work to help save my life; and that is exactly what Baja rehab did for me. With the help and support of all the staff and the amazing work I did with my psychologist, I started to change my way of thinking, acting and behaving. This place truly helped me to see myself, understand myself and love myself. In my addiction I didn’t want to face myself and now after having gone there and received so much love, support and help every step of the way, I can finally do that. I found the strength to stop running from my problems and finally face them head on and stop lying to myself. Because of Baja rehab, I have reconnected with myself, my friends and my family. Honesty and integrity are values I have always had, but lost in my addiction. After six months there of rigorous work, I am still happily sober with nine months, working two jobs and finally back on track in life. My life feels so full and fulfilled and I’m extremely grateful that I had the opportunity to go there and remember exactly what I’m made of. Thank you so much for all that you have done for me, Baja rehab was that stepping stone I needed and has become apart of my core foundation in helping me feel like I am right where I belong. In meetings they ask, how did you do it. And with the help of Baja rehab it’s easier to say how I didn’t have to do it: alone. I found and made deep connections with my peers and we began to navigate through life sober and I am so grateful I had the opportunity to start my recovery there. Devin

I offer my highest recommendation for Baha Rehab, believing that the unique aspects of this program were instrumental in saving the life of our adult son, who attempted to take his own life out of desperation to overcome his serious and overwhelming Substance Abuse Disorder. Baha Rehab stands out among treatment programs in that it offers a safe, therapeutic environment that the person suffering from a Substance Use Disorder may not voluntarily leave. One could pay exponentially more money for programs in the United States, only to have their loved one walk away from treatment at the most critical time, as addiction is a chronically relapsing brain disorder that fights for itself in the sufferer’s brain and needs significant time of sobriety and therapy for new brain pathways to form. Director Adam Lincoln was invaluable to us in preparing for our son’s admittance to the program during a truly frightening time, and being available to us through the process of his therapy and final release at a time when our son had the greatest potential to continue his therapy on an outpatient basis. The caring staff, excellent variety of personalized therapies and evaluations, along with the proven 12 step model, gave our son the confidence he needed to build a foundation to continue recovering from his significant trauma. Baha Rehab is not a sterile, clinical setting, but offers supportive family atmosphere in natural, relaxed setting that is at the same time utterly secure, and where the SUD sufferer is treated as a whole person and given adequate time to develop the coping skills necessary to begin a new life. The family component allows families to be a part of their loved one’s recovery without falling into co-dependent patterns. This component was made conveniently available through on-line connection with the staff and the patient, supplemented by in-person family visits when appropriate. I feel certain that our son would not be alive today had he been admitted to even the most luxurious, highly rated facility in the US, and we will remain ever grateful to God and the person who recommended Baja Rehab to our family.

Sometimes it's hard to ask for help, but when most of the rehabs in the United States are all about scamming insurance companies it's easy to see why places like this are necessary. If you really want help, and not to be set up for failure to be a recurring "customer" give this place a shot. They've had good success

We took our 22 year son to Baja after 17 stays in US rehabs, where he ran every time. From the moment I spoke with Adam (owner), I knew this was where our son needed to be. John has been at Baja since June and has made more progress than ever before. He is drug and alcohol free for the first time in years and is surrounded by competent and loving people who support him each and every day. His psychologist, Felipe, stays in constant contact with us and we visit John weekly via ZOOM. We visited him last month and stayed at the Las Rocas Hotel (right down the street from the rehab) and were delighted with our accommodations. During our visit with John, at Baja, we were introduced to EVERYONE and we could not believe the outpouring of kindness from every staff member, it is truly an incredible place. Initially, I was hesitant about sending our son to Mexico for rehab but we are so glad we made the decision. He is safe and finally, finally getting the help he needs. Thank you Baja, for all you are doing for our son and our family!

I am so thankful for the dedication and caring attitude of Adam and all of the staff at Baja. I made the trip in January from Georgia to San Diego to try to get my son help after being in psychosis for 8 months (lost 80 lbs in 4 months) and after we landed in San Diego he bolted. I had to return to Georgia not knowing if I would ever see him again. Three days later I got a call from the San Diego PD that my son was in custody and was being transported to a hospital. Adam sent someone to pick him up and transport him to Baja. I am just returning from my second visit there and I am so pleased with all of the staff and the care he is receiving. My son has been a particularly difficult case so his stay there has been much longer than most. I have tried with no success to get help for him in the US for over 14 years. Adam and Baja saved my son’s life and I am so thankful. If you are thinking of sending a loved one here I would highly recommend you do it. I am willing and eager to speak to anyone who has any concerns or questions as a parent or caregiver. Please feel free to reach out to Adam for my contact information and I will happily share my experience.

I went to Baja rehab over a year ago now, for their three month program. i was scared, but it was the best decision i made in my life. Adam and his staff work hard to show recovering addicts there is a way to be sober, and they take you out (water park, beach, horseback riding, bowling, etc) to show you you could be sober and have fun. they take you to meetings outside of the rehab, and have a good scheduled routine to keep busy throughout the day, that includes meditation, check-ins, informative videos, and some fun. they have a store you could buy snacks from, and they have amazing chefs. the program itself is great, and you could tell Some of the staff really cares.

Excellent 90 day program, very very focused. Exactly what we needed for our son to reset before moving to another step down program.

Literal godsend. Thank you. Adam. Felipe. All staff who supported my family member and our family—you went above and beyond. Thank you so very much. I’m so grateful to have found you guys. What Baja has to offer is completely unique and desperately needed right now. Adam, the owner, answered our call and walked our family through everything. We drove 8 hours there the next day. Adam checked in regularly and made sure we we’re OK throughout, despite it being his weekend home with family. It’s difficult to write a Google review and adequately express what has transpired- but I’m leaving one for the next person that’s here desperately looking for help. If you’re here reading this, you may have an inkling of the hell that brought me here reading these same reviews a few months ago. Baja is a game changer. I can’t change another person. I get it. However, there are certain times/unique circumstances when someone needs a safe & supportive environment— for a few months— and be respectfully required to stay in place. Then, maybe- hopefully, they are fortunate enough to decide what they want to do with their lives. Baja empowered our person- guided them, kept them safe, and loved them until they were ready to take the next step. Adam remained available but transitioned contact to our therapist, Felipe. We had weekly calls with Felipe and he worked regularly with our family member one-on-one while there. Felipe was the most patient, loving and beautiful guide throughout this process for our family. Adam went completely out of his way again to ensure our family member transitioned smoothly. I’m happy to be a reference if someone needs it- it’s the least thing I could ever do. Adam can give you my number if he feels it would be useful. I’m indebted. Grateful beyond.

The only English-speaking treatment center in Baja California, Mexico

Baja Rehab Team

Exceptional Addiction Center for Men & Women in Puerto Nuevo, Mexico

Baja Rehab is a High-End and efficient drug & alcohol treatment center established just South of the San Diego border. One of a kind, we base our 12-step influenced program on sober camaraderie, mental health care, shared stories, families, personal experiences, healthy relationships & thrilling activities that introduce a new way of living.

Our goal is to get to the source of the problem that intensifies the reaction. In addition to providing breathtaking views on a comfortable, high-end 2-acre hacienda in Puerto Nuevo, Mexico, we strive to create genuine and personal relations with our patients and their families so that maintaining a new sober way of life can be achieved.

The journey begins when making a choice; leaving current ideals behind, trusting in something bigger & creating a new way of thinking. We hold a responsibility to build new perspectives; to change every unhealthy thing the client was doing, and to instill pathways to accountability.

Baja Rehab provides patients with top-of-the-line, comfortable full medical detox and dual diagnosis. Many patients struggle with mental disorders and drug and alcohol problems. More often than not, these conditions occur together frequently. Thereafter, detoxification, psychiatry, and therapy will be critical alongside our calm, fun, intensive 3-6 month AA/NA-based lockdown residential efficient treatment program.

Lockdown is the most incredible opportunity that Baja Rehab has to legally offer patients and their families. For anybody who is serious about making a commitment to their personal recovery, it is an intimate and life-changing decision. Unfortunately, it is also a decision that some cannot and will not make for themselves. The family now has this opportunity, and the right, to make the decision on that person’s behalf. What a miracle it is, to get your loved ones’ help and save them from possible overdose or death, instead of standing by to watch them kill themselves.

We take pride in giving the family the option to hold the responsibility. When you check the patient in, you will be the only one allowed to check them out. Many individuals are not ready to stop; some want to stop, but won’t because they are physically dependent on the substance, unwilling, or not in the right state of mind to make decisions. The lockdown process puts an immediate halt on the addicted individual’s choice to keep using when they are not well enough to make good choices for themselves anymore.

This unique approach along with affordable high-end & efficient clinical care separates us from American institutions. Unfortunately, laws in the United States don’t allow for the lockdown of the patient. The patient is allowed to leave at will and run the risk of relapse when their brain isn’t fully healed yet. Post-acute withdrawal is still taking place in the first 30–60 days of sobriety and the tolerance level is gone, therefore causing a higher percentage of overdose death rates. The longer sobriety and emotional time to recover, the higher the chance of recovery and continued sobriety.

With full schedules including psychological evaluation, medication monitoring, group and individual therapy, family counseling, creative therapy, and motivating physical activities; we are focused on removing the patient from their dysfunctional environment by providing a safe and serene place to recover. The patient will not check out until the family advisor has agreed upon a discharge date with supervising staff at the end of 3–6 months. This will guarantee the client 60 days sober without interruption.

In some cases, continued care at Baja Rehab may be necessary, but in most cases, plans for aftercare, sober living, and or outpatient programs in Mexico and or San Diego will be advised for continued care. We will continue therapy with the families and patients after check out on a routine scheduled maintenance basis.
