Heartland House Admissions Process
Changes in Response to Coronavirus Pandemic
Until further notice, Heartland House will include the following actions in our admissions process:
- We will conduct all assessments of potential clients via telephone.
- In addition to an initial health screening, we will conduct a secondary health screening of each potential client to assess any potential risk to the health and well-being of the residents and staff of Heartland House and the community at large.
If the potential client indicates or exhibits any symptoms of illness, the Heartland House staff will assist them in contacting their healthcare provider to determine actions to be taken.

Veterans have a special place at Heartland House – generally, over 40% of our residents are veterans. We are one of only two recovery homes in San Diego County that are contracted by the Veterans Administration (VA) to receive referrals. We have solid, established relationships with the VA staff and its medical and counseling programs. Over 60% of our veteran residents have a disability. Our staff will work with you and the VA staff to assist you in getting to outpatient appointments and special therapy for physical therapy, PTSD, Combat Veteran groups, and other service-related matters.
To Enter Heartland House
Make an appointment at the VA. Depending on your condition, you may first be admitted to their detox program. If approved by the VA to enter residential treatment, you can request to be placed at Heartland House. The VA and Heartland House staff will handle processing your referral.
