Casa is licensed/certified by the State of California and a Joint Commission accredited behavioral health treatment center for women seeking treatment for substance use disorders. Because our facility is neither a hospital nor nursing facility all participants must be well enough to participate in required activities. Screening is done during the admissions process to determine level of care requirements.
Casa recovery concept emphasizes a three-pronged approach to treatment based on mental, physical and spiritual recovery. Casa’s loving but highly structured residential treatment program includes a variety of activities designed to enrich the spirit, mind and body, while providing a supportive environment in which the healing and growth process can begin.
Casa requires new participants to arrive with a minimum of 24 hours of sobriety from alcohol and/or other mind-altering substances. Based off of assessment, some may require a referral to a medical detoxification before entry into out residential or outpatient programs. Look here to see a list of things to bring to treatment.
The family plays a critical role in the recovery process. We encourage reunification among families that have been broken apart by alcohol and drug addiction through weekly family group sessions, where we provide education about the disease of addiction and offer suggested road maps for family members to utilize as they and the recovering family member begin to heal together.
