This all-male facility serves adolescents who struggle with mental health issues and co-occurring substance use. The home-like setting includes 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, creating an atmosphere in which counselors can focus on supporting young men in learning how to manage their emotional struggles in healthy and appropriate ways by developing skills to cope with their urges for substances and high-risk behaviors.

The program utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and experiential therapy that incorporates Surf Therapy and physical activities which reinforce emotional regulation and awareness. Parents are included in some therapy sessions and the program provides for multi-family groups and visitation on weekends to support both our clients and their families in achieving growth and reconciliation.

The facility is conveniently located right off the 405 freeway, close to the interchange between the 405 and 710, between Pasadena and Elm avenues in Long Beach.
