The roots of the T
While Heartland House initially focused on alcoholics, it expanded to include men with other substance abuse issues and dual diagnoses. Throughout its 56+ year history, Heartland House has provided a successful patient-centered social model program, adapting our approach in response to ongoing research in the field of addiction recovery as well as changes in the populations affected and in substances abused (such as Oxycodone, Spice, the resurgence of heroin).
We serve 28 residents in two facilities – a 20-bed recovery home on Streamview Drive in Southeast San Diego that is fully owned by the organization, and an 8-bed sober living continuing care housing facility in a rental unit across the street. Heartland House currently provides approximately 10,220 bed days per year to recovering alcoholics and addicts, whose average stay lasts between 3 months to a year.
Most residents are between the ages of 18-65. We are one of two men’s recovery facilities in the County contracted by the Veterans Administration to take referrals. Typically over 40% of the men we serve are veterans.
Heartland House is a longtime San Diego County contractor through the Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) Drug and Alcohol
Our future holds exciting new changes that will enable us to serve more men and to reduce the wait time to join Heartland House recovery community.
Our mission is to serve men recovering from substance use disorder and related co-occurring conditions. Our overall goals are to provide a living environment conducive to continued recovery, conduct an educational program that helps the newly recovering alcoholic/addict establish a long-term support system, and generate attitudes that enhance self-sufficiency, self-worth and an ongoing quality of life.
