Please do not go here. They will tell you your stay is covered by insurance and then slam you a year later for $5,000 of bills! This place will not help you move forward!

Staff ratio is excellent, provide diverse recovery meeting exposure 12 step, smart recovery and church if and depending on the client's needs and desires. The program is setup in a manner that allows the client to use and enhance experiences that may be part of their own daily routines which makes the program uniquely designed to fit the individual. Staff is very competent and trained in several areas that helps offer diverse approaches to recover and relapse prevention. Once you are a client the door is always open after the client transitions back with their families. Staff are caring and loving.

Compassion, guidance, support, empathy, appreciation, recognition, structure, security, and sympathy were all strengths. Consistency was an issue. This facility Counselors and therapist goals are to assist you with building back your life. The results you will get are the same as the effort you make in all the work you put in. This facility is clean and extremely comfortable with plenty of compassionate people to support you and guide you in making the appropriate choices for moving forward in life.

Excellent
Trauma Focused treatment was a strength. Along with Gender Specific (all women's treatment facility) Holistice/Integrative Treatment Highly Trained and Experienced Therapist and Staff High ratio between client to staff Individualized care. However, Lack of communication between sites at times was a weakness. This facility offers a holistic/integrative model of treatment for women who have been suffering due to unresolved trauma and other mood disorders, and have used alcohol/drugs to reduce the emotional pain. The facility helps women find their voice and create a life worth living instead of self-imposed suffering. They teach clients about the disease model of addiction, but also how to manage their emotions and make choices that supports their recovery and helps them discover their potential.

Excellent
Holistic, flexible program, administered by caring, dedicated staff. Chefs provide a diet (Malibu Beach Recovery Diet) that reduces cravings and regulates dopamine. Yoga up to 3 times a day, mindfulness, expressive therapies, multiple modalities, plenty of individual attention. Spacious houses, beautiful views. There are three residential houses, 6 beds each. Some people prefer more company. Staff really make an effort to provide individualized attention to clients and meet clients where they are, rather than approach treatment in a rigid manner. At the same time, staff provides appropriate structure and supports accountability in a respectful way.

EXCELLENT MANAGEMENT TEAM. A FEW EMPLOYEES WITH ENTITLEMENT ISSUES WHO THINK THEY OWN THE COMPANY. Top notch one on one treatment, availability 24/7 for clients, and all staff are involved. Stress free environment on behalf of the client. Communication and a proactive mindset is a positive goal staff continue to promote. Ethics are very strong at this facility, and I appreciate that fact.
