Pet-Friendly Alcohol and Drug Rehab Center

Alta Mira Recovery Programs is a world-class pet-friendly rehab center in Northern California. Our unique therapeutic approach and expert staff ensure you or your loved one receives treatment and support needed for lasting change. Our evidence-based cocaine addiction treatments, including medically supervised detox, residential care, and therapy, offer the intensity and duration necessary to go beyond immediate recovery to help our clients attain greater independence.

Because addiction treatment is a stressful experience, we offer our clients the option of bringing their pets to rehab. Pets provide love and support and many other benefits that help their owners during a difficult time.

A pet’s unconditional love is often needed at the end of sometimes trying days of detox and therapy. Pets also gives our clients a sense of purpose and responsibility.

Studies show that rehab clients experienced an increase in happiness after exposure and interaction with pets while in treatment.

We truly believe pets can make a difference in your life as you navigate the addiction recovery process.

Responsibility and Positivity


Taking care of a living thing can sometimes be a lot of work–but that can be a good thing. Struggling with addiction can result in feelings of shame, unworthiness, and distrust in one’s self because of past decisions and experiences. When you make the commitment to care for an animal and keep it healthy, you are making a choice to be disciplined and challenge those very same beliefs about yourself.

Pets can be demanding, but when you are able to meet the challenge and receive love in return, it can help you begin to redeem the negative image you have of yourself, and boost your self-esteem.

Battling addiction is not fun or easy–but pet interaction and ownership can challenge you to see the jovial, bright side of life as you continue into recovery. A British survey found that over forty percent of struggling pet owners who were polled after spending time with a pet were more “positive” in their outlook on life, and also reported feeling less anxious about their current problems or unfavorable circumstances.

Because animals are naturally good-natured, their general positive and loving demeanors can elevate happiness in the same ways that alcohol or drugs once did.
