 About ABT and Our Accreditation

Forterus is dedicated to serving the middle class with its "A Better Tomorrow" facility in Murrieta, California, and it caters to higher end clients with Dana Point Recovery, a clinic in Dana Point in coastal Orange County, one of the most beautiful areas in the world. The clinics provide a 28-day to 90- day treatment program. There is also a separate treatment program for adolescents, and Spanish-language treatment services. ABTTC, INC. has achieved annual growth rates topping 34 percent every year since its founding and is dedicated to growing by acquiring more treatment facilities in Southern California. Its focus on long term recovery by using relapse prevention and family friendly components surpasses all industry standards in the addiction field. It also offers an intensive outpatient program.

Here on A Better Tomorrow, you get the very best of the drug rehabilitation centers in the world, helping people nationwide fight alcohol and drug addiction. Our treatment centers are accredited by the CARF, we are able to work with insurance companies nationwide, and all of our staff hold high credentials including many with master level degrees. You need experience to help with addiction, whether you are afflicted or a loved one is. We can help.

We focus on long term recovery by using relapse prevention and family friendly components which surpass industry standard in the addiction field. When taken together, using the right rehab clinic and drug rehabilitation center costs less than you think. After all, so many addicts lose jobs and careers, families and friends, and many other things you simply cannot put a price on. In terms of jobs and careers, it's tough for anyone suffering drug or alcohol addiction to maintain a job; they lose them more often than not. Thousands if not tens of thousands is spent on drugs and alcohol, or on decisions made while using. In turn, families and friends lose trust in the addict, or decide to give up on them. Addiction is a powerful thing to suffer with alone, but often is incredibly hard on friends and loved ones too. The answer is the right drug rehabilitation center, and the right alcohol rehab service.

Our intensive outpatient program is truly priceless, and combined with our sober living facilities it solves the problem of addiction for many. How? It offers a stable, loving, and caring environment overseen by professionals who have more experience than most family and loved ones. We know how to handle addicts because of our years experience.
Our main goal for clients is to set their own goals for long term recovery. Simply getting a job back or making apologies isn't enough. Often there are other problems involved in using drugs and alcohol at the outset, like anxiety, depression, bi-polar disorder, and many other psychological problems.

Founded in 1966, as the Commission on Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities, CARF is a private, not-for-profit organization that promotes quality rehabilitation services. It does this by establishing standards of quality for organizations to use as guidelines in developing and offering their programs or services to consumers. CARF uses the standards to determine how well an organization is serving its consumers and how it can improve. Every year the standards are reviewed and new ones are developed to keep pace with changing conditions and current consumer needs. At A Better Tomorrow our accreditation is means of demonstrating our commitment to quality for clients and their family members. We strive to stay above the standards by providing consistent care in accordance with the newest, evidence-based information. The more innovative our treatment is, the better we can adjust to the fast-paced field of Addiction Recovery. Out of the thousands of programs, only 5% have achieved this status of being accredited.

These drug rehab programs may include inpatient, residential, outpatient, and/or short-stay options.
