About Foundations San Diego

Foundations San Diego is a distinctive outpatient center located in the hub of the Hillcrest metropolitan area in San Diego, Calif. We offer integrated treatment and recovery support for the unique needs of individuals with co-occurring addiction and mental health concerns. We serve patients both locally and nationwide.

We offer a continuum of individual and group therapies, integrated educational sessions, case management, medication management and holistic approaches. Employing Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and other proven methods, we walk with patients using a stages-of-change approach, providing education and helping them achieve their personal goals in recovery. Our daytime program includes Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient levels of care, and we offer community-based yoga in the evenings. We also provide aftercare groups in the evening that are free for life to all who have attended the program.

Foundations San Diego embraces diversity and the uniqueness of the individual. We have specialty groups offering supportive therapy to the LGBT community, professionals and people of all backgrounds and cultures. We foster a safe, compassionate and restorative environment where you are encouraged to be your authentic self. Our philosophy is that whoever you may be, you have a place at Foundations San Diego.
