My brother went here and now he has almost 4 years clean and sober! He was a bottom of the barrel heroin addict and now he's a straight A student transferring from Cabrillo to a 4 year university. The staff is friendly and inspiring. It has a beautiful location (a block away from the beach) with a solid program. Bottom line is I got my brother back and we owe it to the excellent start he got at Janus. Wish I could give it 6 stars. If you have a genuine desire to get clean this is the place to do it.
Janus of Santa Cruz was founded in 1976 by physician Dr. Robert G. O’Brient, who introduced a highly effective approach for treating alcoholism in a social model setting. Today, that first modest facility has grown into one of the most respected, full-service addiction treatment centers in
California, serving over 2,500 clients and their families each year. For 40 years, Janus has remained dedicated to its mission: to provide supportive, hope-inspiring and successful addiction treatment services in a professional and compassionate environment while assisting individuals and families on their journey toward wellness and recovery.
