Our residential treatment program provides 24-hour care for patients in need of structure and support. Our homes are warm and intimate spaces that provide a serene place where patients can focus on their recovery. Treatment is customized and employs a variety of evidence-based modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and more. Patients are also encouraged to make the mind-body connection by finding activities that promote healing and feelings of self-worth, as well as how food can play an important role in well being.
The School Support Program is offered to young patients, where an education liaison supervises and supports them through their schoolwork. The education liaison also collaborates with the patient’s therapist to ensure they have the right environment in place for learning, which will in turn help them reintegrate into their school after treatment.
Insurances we accept at this location include but are not limited to Kaiser, Humana, Cigna, and Unicare. Please remember that the insurances we accept change frequently. Our insurance team will verify your coverage.
