Pemarro Recovery Has Ceased Operations

1 year ago

Thank you for visiting our website. After over 36 years of service to the San Diego and Ramona community, Pemarro as we know it shut its doors on 4/1/21. COVID and an ever-changing treatment landscape contributed to the need to sadly close. We so appreciate the efforts of our loyal staff and all of the amazing clients who have stayed here over the years. It was always the goal of everyone at Pemarro to be of service, and it seems we accomplished that. Wisdom tells us everything, even the best things, have a beginning, middle, and end. Although we wish Pemarro could go on forever, we know it cannot. We hope it will continue in other forms and ways as the people who connected here over the years go on to touch the lives of others in different settings and as clients thrive in their personal lives. We would like to thank the Ramona community for their support over the years. We know you may have visited this page because you need help. Below are referrals to our most trusted community partners.
