Introduction and Basic Services

The Crosby Clinic was founded in 2000 in Escondido, California, a small town 30 miles north of San Diego. The organization is a member of healthcare conglomerate AAE Retreat and offers residential, outpatient and detox services to adult men and women.

Facility and Meals

Crosby Clinic’s residential program operates out of three luxurious homes in the Escondido area. The first house is designated the dual diagnosis residence and clients are split up into separate wings by genders. The second house is co-ed and designed for clients in the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), and the third house is designed for clients in the brain trauma program.

The organization values privacy and security, and the houses are gated and equippedwith state-of-the-art camera surveillance technology.

The accommodations have a mixture of both shared rooms and private rooms, with the private rooms being available at no extra cost to the client. The bedrooms have double beds with high-end linens, bedside tables, dressers and antique fixtures.

Each residence also has a kitchen filled with modern appliances, that’s adjacent to a formal dining room and a casual outdoor dining area. Outside, all houses have a swimming pool and beautiful green garden. The homes are also all equipped with full gyms.

Crosby Clinic has an on-site chef who prepares three healthy, well-balanced meals a day consisting of local fruits, vegetables and lean meat. The chef also aims to accommodate any dietary restrictions or needs each client may have.

All of the houses have a house manager who lives on-site.

Treatment Protocol and Team

The intake process includes a number of brain scans and neurological tests run by the Crosby Clinic’s Neuroscience Institute Staff. These tests are aimed to help provide understanding of imbalances in the brain that could reveal potential co-occurring disorders. Crosby Clinic’s doctors and counselors use the results of these to design a treatment plan for the client that best addresses his or her unique needs.

Crosby Clinic operates a detox program through SHARP Mesa Vista Hospital. The detox program is overseen by a team of registered nurses who check in with the clients regularly throughout their stay. The length and intensity of the detox program is based entirely on the needs of the client. While at the hospital, each client is assigned a private room with a heated massage contour bed with 900 thread count sheets and flat-screen TV.

The residential program has a total of 16 clients and treatment lasts from 30 to 90 days. The treatment consists of a mixture of group and individual therapy. Counselors use a number of different treatment techniques including CBT, DBT, EDMR, biofeedback and educational therapy.

Crosby Clinic’s PHP consists of group and individual therapy and meets five to seven times a week. Clients in this program have the option of living at one of Crosby Clinic’s houses or not. Although the PHP functions as a step-down from the residential program, clients also have the option of entering into it directly as well.

The IOP meets three to five times a week. It consists of both group and individual therapy, and exact length of time in the program is based on the needs of the client.

Crosby Clinic does not use the 12 steps at all in its programming.

As previously mentioned, the organization is dual diagnosis and utilizes brain imaging, brain mapping, Neurofeedback and Biofeedback to help address potential co-occurring disorders. Crosby Clinic also offers medication management.

The well-rounded staff consists of a mixture of LADCs, LPCs, licensed psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, acupuncturists and doctors.

The organization also runs a 90-day aftercare program that consists of regular group meetings. Clients interested in aftercare must sign a contract agreeing to attend aftercare at least three times a week for 90 days.

Bonus Amenities

Crosby Clinic also operates three sober living homes. Just like the residential program, two of these homes are gender specific and one is co-ed. Each house has three shared bedrooms with a maximum of six clients per house.

Residents living in the sober living houses must attend therapy at least three times a week. Although clients are not required to have a job to stay in these houses, they are strongly encouraged to find some form of employment or pursue further education. Also, sober living residents must submit to weekly alcohol and drug tests.

Crosby Clinic offers a variety of legal, financial and career advisors to help client’s transition back into life outside of treatment.

The organization offers alternative therapies that include expressive art therapy; acupuncture and meditative yoga lead by a certified yoga instructor.


The Crosby Clinic offers highly individualized residential, outpatient and detox treatment to adult men and women in the Escondido area. The Neuroscience Institute Staff and brain scans allow clients to receive treatment that is targeted to address specific imbalances in their brain. The PHP, IOP and aftercare programs provide a great deal of support as clients transition out of treatment. Also, the variety of treatment protocols allow counselors to find a method that best works with the client.
