Our Mission at Merito Treatment

Glenn Swanson, CADC II, MBA first established our facilities in 1994. Glenn based the first facility in Upland, California, after completing treatment for addiction himself. His fundamental beliefs; commitment, honesty, integrity, respect, and service. While the original facility, His House, has expanded over time to include several locations and establishing Merito rehabs for men, all our facilities stay true to the core tenets.


Addiction is an ongoing disease – rehabilitation and recovery don’t stop when you leave our facility but instead need to be continued out in the real world. However, addiction can be treated, we promise to be there to help not only in our houses but well beyond. Merito’s staff members are committed to every individual we assist; we are always there to help.


Our founder Glenn has undergone treatment for addiction, as have many of our professional and experienced staff. The honesty the experiences during that time has given them a deep commitment to truth and transparency. “The first step is admitting you have a problem” is a step toward honesty with yourself. Rest assured we will be honest with you.


Merito’s rehab facilities employ alternative therapies in addition to the more traditional, medical and talk therapy-based programs many are more familiar with. We offer physical therapy, nutrition plans, exercise programs, yoga, outdoor therapy, Christian track programs, and group and family therapy for the loved ones of our clients.


Both mental health disorders and addictions often come with a sense of stigma from society. We avoid all judgement and social taboos at Merito. Our experienced staff have often faced these taboos personally and overcome them, and so they are dedicated to showing respect with compassion for our clients. Merito is founded on respect for ourselves and respect for our clients.


Confidentiality is among the top goals of our addiction and mental health treatment service. We will never discuss details about your situation unless you specifically tell us to, in accordance with HIPAA regulations. Addiction and mental health are private issues, and we firmly believe in protecting our clients’ privacy. Whatever you tell us stays with us.
