What People are Saying

“The rehabilitation industry is rapidly growing and overwhelming the families and private residents in the neighborhood. It is not willing to self-regulate, so the City needs to establish reasonable guidelines to protect the value and tranquility of our community."



- Kevin T.

San Clemente, CA

“I support recovery and treatment and understand that there are people who need a Segway back into society. I do support regulations with the homeowners. I am against the misuse of homes within any community to make money on this and to cluster areas in doing so.”


- Cynthia V.

San Clemente, CA

“I want to see the quality of our neighborhoods remain strong, and I'd like to see the quality of these healthcare facilities improve as well.

Someone is making too much money off of others addictions.”
