In the past, 28 days was the golden number for the suggested length of rehab for substance abuse. Today in 2019, we know that number doesn’t work for most people. Here at Creo Spero, we offer a truly individualized treatment program, meaning each client’s stay is unique to their individual needs. Most clients have a detox period that lasts 5-7 days, sometimes longer depending on the situation. After detox is completed, clients typically stay anywhere from 30-60 days in our residential program, again depending on each client’s personal issues with substance abuse.

We here at Creo Spero understand that addiction is a family disease and that family dynamics are a crucial part of the recovery process. We offer family therapy (in-person and remote), educational workshops, couple’s addiction treatment, and visitation from family members to help the entire family heal and recover from the chaos of active addiction.


Creo Spero is a drug & alcohol treatment center located in Santa Ana, CA  for clients seeking treatment for drug & alcohol abuse. Our unique, evidence-based program combines traditional treatment methods with creative therapies like music and art therapy, to assist clients in achieving long-term recovery.


While the ultimate goal for most clients is complete abstinence, here at Creo Spero we understand addiction as the complex medical illness that it is. Knowing that we utilize evidence-based therapies including MAT or Medication-Assisted Therapy. Typically those addicted to opioids and alcohol are ideal candidates for MAT including Vivitrol, Suboxone, Antabuse and other medications that can assist the recovery process.


Creo Spero believes in creating hope through our innovative and creative-based addiction treatment program. Music and art are important parts of the human experience, and we incorporate both into all aspects of our program. Clients can find various instruments, art supplies, and inspiration through each other in the creative environment at Creo Spero.



You are a special individual and that is why we personalize each treatment plan. Thorough evaluation and assessments are conducted within the first several days at Creo Spero. A team of counselors will assess each physical, social, emotional, and behavioral problem. A treatment plan will be generated to meet the specific needs of each client. There will be periodic reviews to determine any other treatment goals that can be added to the treatment experience.

Creo Spero, formerly Sublime, has some of the best employees in the business, from the man that owns the whole thing to the Clinical Techs working around the clock at the Gertrude Facility. Everyone is at the top of their game and as a result, Creo Spero is the next up and coming rehab facility. The level of professionalism among staff is apparent in the way everyone presents themselves at work and when handling every situation imaginable that an unruly client can throw at them. Maintaining a peaceful and clean facility is very important and they nail it and that is just the tip of the iceberg. Everyone involved works hard to keep the wheels turning and the doors open for new clients.

Went to Creo Spero, formerly Sublime, back in November. Was sent there only for a relapse from an IOP center I was at. I am really glad that they gave me the option to stay for residential because my life was really getting out of control. I had never been to such a small facility before but with the place only being 6 beds, I was able to really get a lot of help when needed. It was the small things they did that helped me the most like getting me enrolled in school (something I had never done before). Even to this day I call an employee over there for school advice. Also, one of the great things about it being a small place was that they were able to do things I needed to get done. Such as going to the DMV and picking up job applications around my sober living. Taylor was my counselor at the time and he really helped me with my applications and a resume that got me my job in the vape industry.

Creo Spero, formerly Sublime Recovery, has changed my life forever! I would recommend this facility to anyone serious about getting clean. No judgment they care about their clients. And the owner you even see when you are there it’s not just another place who you don’t know who’s running owns it etc. I couldn’t have been more blessed than to have been able to be directed to Creo Spero. They go above and beyond to help there clients! Thanks, Creo Spero!

I've been here for about two weeks and if I ever needed help or didn't know where to go I would without hesitation come back! The staff is amazing and help you with anything and everything, they make you feel safe, wanted, loved, and at home and for me, that was amazing because I came from North Carolina and they are just amazing and I couldn't ask for anything else.
