At Anchored Tides Recovery, we are here to help women who struggle with addiction to alcohol and/or drugs. We have dedicated ourselves to providing outstanding treatment services that provide our clients with the tools to not only get sober but stay sober as well. We have a number of tools at our disposal that can help women do exactly that.

SUBSTANCE ABUSE & WOMEN

Understanding Drug & Alcohol Addiction

Addiction is a disease and it takes many forms. When someone has an addiction, they will do anything in their power to feed that addiction. In essence, their brains view that addictive substance as something that is necessary for life. There are many signs that someone has an addiction to alcohol and drugs. Some of the most common symptoms include:

Dependence: If someone is addicted to alcohol or drugs, they have a dependence on that substance. One of the biggest signs of dependence is the development of withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal occurs when someone goes for an extended period of time without the substance with which they have the addiction. Some of the most common symptoms of withdrawal include shakes, sweats, fevers, and even seizures.

Tolerance:  Another common sign of addiction is the development of a phenomenon called tolerance. Tolerance takes place when the body gets used to having that substance in its system. In essence, someone needs more of the substance to achieve the same physical effects, such as a high. This is what makes addiction so dangerous. The more someone has to take to achieve the intended effects, the greater chance there is of someone overdosing. This can lead to serious medical complications.

Substance abuse is a serious problem for everyone, including women. Fortunately, there are a few key components of addiction treatment that can be helpful.

WHY DO I NEED REHAB?

The Benefits of an Addiction Treatment Facility
for Women

At Anchored Tides Recovery, our goal is to provide every woman with the addiction treatment she requires. There are a number of important components to our addiction treatment program. These include:

Overcoming Withdrawal: The first step is to get someone clean. This means removing any and all traces of alcohol or drugs from the system. We are here to help someone get through the first phase of recovery, which means overcoming withdrawal. After the withdrawal has finished, the true recovery process can begin.

Staying Clean: Once someone has cleared any alcohol and drugs from his or her system, the next step is to stay clean. At Anchored Tides Recovery, we work hard to identify what drove the client to addictive behaviors in the first place. Then, by removing these causes, we can help someone stay clean. 

At Anchored Tides Recovery, we marry these two concepts to create a comprehensive and well-rounded treatment program. To that end, we have a variety of programs to help women on the road to recovery from substance abuse.

WOMEN'S ADDICTION TREATMENT PROGRAM

How Our Women's Addiction Treatment Center Can Help

At Anchored Tides Recovery, our addiction treatment programs include: 

Partial Hospitalization Program

Our women’s partial hospitalization program is a major component of what we do. In PHP, clients will spend the vast majority of the day on-site. This is a blend between an inpatient program and an outpatient schedule. Using group therapy, counseling, and other tools, we will help patients take their first steps toward sobriety.

Intensive Outpatient Program

We also offer an intensive outpatient program in Orange County. This program is more involved than typical outpatient treatment, allowing someone to get the required level of attention they need, but still attend to outside commitments. 

Outpatient Program

We provide an Orange County outpatient program that allows our women to tailor their treatment plans to meet their own individual needs. We offer one-on-one counseling, group therapy, and a variety of behavioral programs to help someone remain sober.

Sober Living

Once someone has achieved sobriety, the next step is long-term recovery. This is the goal behind sober living. With long-term recovery monitoring, Anchored Tides Recovery will provide women with the tools necessary to remain free from substance abuse.

Bunny & Murphy

Registered Emotional Support Animals

Bunny is a 3yo male French Bulldog and Murphy is a 6yo female Shiba Inu. Both of these pups have been raised at Anchored Tides and grew up handing out love and support to our clients. They have the wonderful ability to sense when someone needs a little extra love, some playful puppy time, or just a companion to sit and hold space while they are processing something. 

Murphy’s favorite treatment activities are Lunch, Reiki, Process group, and sitting in on individual sessions. Bunny’s favorite activities are Lunch, DBT, and also sitting in on individual sessions. When they aren’t working, Murphy likes to play with her little brother (who is not a support animal), go on hikes, dig holes, sleep and eat. During Bunny’s time off, he likes to destroy squeaky toys, play with his nerf dog gun, and sleep.

They (and we) believe that animals are essential in providing emotional support. Studies have shown that some of the benefits of having an ESA include enhancing calm and relaxation, alleviating loneliness, enhancing social engagement and interaction, normalizing heart rate and blood pressure, and reducing stress, pain, anxiety, and depression. They are an important part of the holistic approach at ATR to make everyone feel loved and comfortable as they walk through their recovery journey.

Amy Dutton

COO / Co-Founder

Amy moved to California from Florida in 2011 to begin her journey into a life of recovery. Amy started to gain her spirit back while helping others and that’s when she found her life’s purpose. Amy graduated with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a minor in sociology from Chapman university. Amy has also completed her CAADAC degree at Centaur university. Amy truly believes being outside and in touch with nature helps with self-destructive behaviors, which she considers to be the key to her personal recovery. After years of owning and operating a successful women’s sober living, Amy really saw the need for gender-specific aftercare. Amy Dutton and Becca Edge teamed up to create Anchored Tides Recovery.

William Nephew

Rock To Recovery

William Nephew has been a singer/songwriter for over 20 years. He achieved some notable success early in his career with emo/rock band Jack’s Broken Heart, which won a San Diego Music Award in 2001, toured the continental United States, and shared the stage with acts like The Mars Volta and Jimmy Eat World. Having a strong passion for the arts, William earned a B.A in Cinema production. Following completion of his degree at San Francisco State University, William worked on film/tv projects for major Hollywood production companies including Sony and Universal Pictures.

Williams addiction began at an early age and followed a slow and steady progression. Eventually, William knew he had to make a change. With the help of drug and alcohol treatment, William got sober on May 26th, 2014. He has been sober ever since. William’s talent as a singer/songwriter, passion for the healing power of music, and the struggles of his past make him an outstanding program administrator for Rock to Recovery. He believes in the strength of creative expression as an extremely effective tool to cope with overwhelming emotions in early sobriety because William was actually in Rock to Recovery groups as a CLIENT before he became a program facilitator. William is also a certified CADC-I drug and alcohol counselor by the state of California.

Nate Lawler

Above Water

Above Water Adventures was created to provide a fun, healthy, and constructive outlet for young adults, corporate employees, and those in early recovery. We strive to facilitate a safe and (often) exhilarating setting to push through boundaries and break down barriers. Recovery is not for the faint of heart, it requires courage, willingness, and an innate desire to change. We’re here to offset some of the inherent weight carried during the initial steps of that journey. Our mission is to bolster support and fellowship — and above all, help clients recognize that adventure, fun, and zest for life starts in recovery — not the other way around.

Her professional training partnered with over 32 years of sobriety has led Tracy to be deeply committed to both saving and changing the lives of those struggling with addiction and alcoholism and their families.

As a group facilitator, she works collaboratively with her clients to help them focus on the action they will need to take to recognize the vision they will have for themselves. As an interventionist, she has helped many families to overcome the paralyzing grip of addiction by teaching accountability, compassion, and the other tools needed to break the cycle of addiction and maintain sobriety. Tracy works with the media, treatment facilities, interventionists, therapists, and addiction psychiatrists and consults with treatment facilities.

Katie van Heerden

Clinical Therapist

I am Katie van Heerden, a licensed marriage and family therapist, currently conducting individual and group therapy at ATR using CBT and EMDR modalities. My passion for working with those struggling with addiction and mental health is a personal one. I, myself, grew up in a family system of addiction and mental health issues with little knowledge of what to do or how to recover. This drove me to further my education in mental health disorders, first by obtaining my BA in psychology from Cal State University Fullerton, then my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. While the knowledge I have obtained in school is extensive, my personal journey through life and all of its struggles have led me to the conclusion that anyone can recover if given 2 things: resources and support. When asked what keeps me going in this field, after 10+ years, I typically respond; “I am merely a farmer. I plant the seeds, nourish when necessary, and give space to allow growth.” Watching clients transform into better versions of themselves is not only rewarding but inspiring. It is a “job” I never take for granted.

Michelle King

Operations Manager

Michelle has been a part of the Anchored Tides family since 2018. Michelle is an empathetic individual who finds connection with each client. Her goal is to help women feel understood and see that long-term recovery is possible. Michelle obtained a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Brandman University and is working towards her masters in social work. Michelle is passionate about helping others and considers it an honor to be a part of a treatment team who believes the client’s care is the first priority. In her spare time Michelle loves going to concerts, camping, and road trips.

Tonia Stephens

Clinical Director & Clinical Outreach - LCSW

I was born and raised in Orange County, California. I found myself needing substance abuse treatment in 2010. After learning tools of recovery and receiving treatment I was able to go back to school at age 41 and earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Services and a Master’s Degree in Social Work with an emphasis on Community Mental Health from California State University Fullerton. Getting clean and sober opened the door to a life full of opportunity and hope. I am currently pursuing licensure in the State of California to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
I have the unique opportunity to work as an Associate Clinical Social worker in a treatment setting. My role is to assist with helping each Client master Dialectical Behavior Therapy skills that allow them to emotionally regulate, tolerate distress, live a more meaningful life, and improve their ability to effectively communicate. I come alongside the Clients and help them address life issues that range from food assistance, legal matters, tax issues, creating resumes, budgeting, medical and dental appointments, organizing, studying skills, applying to schools, and finding employment. I assist them with integrating their recovery tool belt with the stressors of life in order to set them up for success once they leave treatment.
I wished that I had a social worker when I was in treatment. Some of my most difficult times were trying to take care of anxiety-provoking adult tasks in early sobriety. I am passionate about my role in these human’s lives and I see it as my honor to be part of their brief journey here at Anchored Tides Recovery. I love my job and I love teaching individuals how to be sober, navigate life, and enjoy being themselves maybe for the first time.

Rebecca Edge

CEO / Co-Founder

Becca Edge is originally from Birmingham, Alabama. She is no stranger to mental health and substance abuse issues in her family, and she herself also struggled with addiction and moved to California to commit herself to treatment. She has been in long-term recovery since 2010. After much success in the corporate world, Rebecca started a sober living home as a “passion project” to provide women with a safe place as they re-enter the world as sober members of society. She noticed that there weren’t many aftercare programs dedicated to women’s sobriety or supporting them with the various co-occurring disorders that pop up once women are free from drugs and alcohol. So in 2016, Rebecca partnered with Amy to create a safe, therapy-focused place where women can heal from their addictions, trauma, and other issues while growing into who they were always meant to be. Becca is passionate about helping women realize their worth and supporting/helping them navigate the next steps of their lives, all while helping them feel secure on their road to long-term recovery.
