Aurora Charter Oak Hospital in Covina, California offers a safe, secure and therapeutic environment for individuals with acute psychiatric and/or substance use problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can my family attend the meetings?

We have family groups twice a week and we encourage family to attend. As RTC residents change their behaviors and commit themselves to recovery, family needs to be involved and committed to the process as well.

Can I have visitors?

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are encouraging visitation via phone, Facetime, and other teleconference options. We reserve the right to refuse any visitor that is hindering a person’s recovery and/or is under the influence during their visit.

How long is your treatment program?

The length of the program is determined by each individual’s ability to meet his or her treatment goals. The average length of stay is anywhere between 14 and 28 days.

What is the hospital like? What is your Recovery Center like?

Aurora Charter Oak Hospital and the Charter Oak Recovery Center are both located in a quiet residential area of Covina, California on 10 acres of beautifully maintained grounds. The San Gabriel Mountains provide a scenic backdrop to our campus, which is a quiet and peaceful therapeutic setting. First-time visitors are often surprised at the “non-institutional” appearance of Aurora Charter Oak. Individuals who are admitted to our hospital stay in one of eight different inpatient units. Adolescents (ages 12-17) are treated separately from adults. The average length-of-stay at Aurora Charter Oak Hospital is 5-7 days, but each individual’s treatment is unique and length of time in the hospital varies. Many individuals receive treatment in the hospital, then decide to continue treatment at the Charter Oak Recovery Center, or by attending one of our outpatient programs.

The Charter Oak Recovery Center is located in its own building and contains 12 private rooms. This is where individuals who have completed drug or alcohol detox can continue receiving treatment (often referred to as “rehab”) for chemical dependency. Most individuals stay 2-4 weeks in our Residential Treatment Center, before returning home or to a sober living environment.
