Our Mission

 

At Keystone Recovery Network, we pride ourselves on cultivating a safe and nurturing environment where the process of healing begins. Our facility has a team of innovative talent that challenges former detox treatment standards. We have developed a program that ushers in a new era in substance abuse treatment. We provide unmatched alcohol and drug addiction detox as well as rehabilitation services that foster a deep and lasting recovery.

 

Keystone Recovery Network is Santa Barbara’s premier client-focused residential substance abuse treatment center and detox facility. With our 24-hour medically supporter patient care, we created a safe, nurturing environment where healing can begin. A therapeutic substance abuse rehabilitation community begins with its treatment team, thus, we have put together a team of innovative talent that challenges former detox treatment standards.

 

We believe in compassionate care with a supportive infrastructure. We provide trauma informed, mindfulness based, therapeutic services and teach our patients about the neurological and physiological underpinnings of alcohol and drug addiction. We help heal the underlying causes of addiction by creating a community where healing happens and the patient learns to practice self-acceptance, self-care, and self-love. Keystone Recovery provides these deeply healing opportunities.

CEO

Mike Crolius brings 40 years of business experience and entrepreneurship to Keystone Recovery. His vision to offer a safe, comfortable, and healthy environment for people to begin the recovery process has truly manifested itself here in Keystone Recovery.

With over 20 years of sobriety Mike found himself struggling with addiction again. This time to prescription pain medication after a back injury. Out of the ashes of that incredibly painful experience was born the concept that became Keystone Recovery Network!

After many years of Recovery Mike brought together the top people in the Santa Barbara recovery community and began the process of designing and bringing to life Keystone Recovery Network. Originally designed for the discerning executive or professional, Keystone Recovery is where anyone who desires a high quality, totally professional, safe, comfortable, cozy, and well appointed home-like environment can begin the process of recovery.

Mike is also a published musician and composer with 8 music CD's to his credit and an author as well. His business background includes owning and operating several successful businesses, including a very successful real estate development company before opening Keystone Recovery Network.
