Treatment Center Philosophy

The Lakehouse Recovery Center of Ventura, Orange, and Los Angeles County successfully offers advanced and highly successful drug addiction & alcoholism treatment! Available to men and women nationwide. The Lakehouse Recovery Center difference exists on many levels and is the culmination of many years experience; but at the heart of it all, the drive behind optimizing the client’s experience here is founded on a core passion to help change lives and rebuild families. We understand the worlds of active addiction and active recovery from every angle. More importantly though, we apply our expertise in a way that manifests as a “treatment experience” rather than just another drug rehab center.

although i have never stayed there i do know some of their staff. some of them sober, some not. when i hear stories of the staff sitting around slandering already sober people that they really don't know, i question their integrity and therefore the effectiveness of the facility as a whole., engaging in gossip and character assassination, are basic no no's of AA. if the staff doesn't know this i question their ability to transmit the necessary principles required for a proper foundation of recovery.

We have a family vibe that supports a sense of community. If our clients desire to be a part of the recovery community our staff puts a lot of time and effort into seamlessly integrating them into it. Our aftercare is great and we stay in touch with our clients and get to see a lot of success stories and see them around the area sober/clean and happy. I haven't seen anything that has concerned me at Lakehouse and our accompanying sober living. I've been around and seen some shady dealings but we sweep nothing under the rug and always put our clients first. Our staff is like a family and the clients get to see and be a part of that. However, very few (but some) clients do not appreciate that we have a well thought out level system that require them to adhere to certain rules and complete chores in order to gain privileges. We have a unique and successful program. We get people from all over and all walks of life that are honored to watch grow. Our facility has a great reputation and our staff take helping people very seriously.

Insurance companies get in the way of patients getting the care required. As a facility we do the best we can within those constraints. The staff is united in its goal and therefore is constantly searching and challenging themselves as a collective and individually to grow and learn ways to better serve our clients. The only weakness I see is we need the next level of credentials to be in network with insurance companies. There are a lot of people we don't get to help because insurance red tape.

I was a client at the Lake House 2 1/2 years ago. I have since become a chef at the Lake House. The house and scenic views are beautiful, presenting each client with the peace and tranquility needed for recovery. The staff is incredibly loving and caring. As one of two chefs at the Lake House, it is my personal goal to provide healthy and nutritious meals that can be customized to each clients' needs. Whether you are vegetarian, vegan or have food allergies, we can accommodate your needs! As a pet owner myself, I really love that we are a pet friendly facility! Your pets become part of the Lake House family!

Great place! The Lake House provided me the tools, the environment, and the support I needed in order to get sober. It taught me a way of life, that is much simpler than the life I was leading. I would highly recommend anyone struggling with addiction, to make the Lake House your choice, you will be amazed with what is in store for you over the horizon.

The Lakehouse saved my life. A very bold and true statement. I was defeated by drugs and alcohol when I arrived, and I left with a new focus and outlook on life. The Lakehouse educated me about my disease and gave me several methods of recovery. The staff is compassionate, knowledgable, and and very invested in their clients. Upon arrival I knew everyone truly cared about me and my recovery. I could write an entire book on how great the staff is. They have become lifelong friends. The Lakehouse is in a beautiful and tranquil location. The house and lake are amazing. The food was extremely healthy and delicious. Mealtime was very memorable. I recommend the Lakehouse to anyone who is struggling with drugs and alcohol, and truly wants to change there life for the better. You will find solid long lasting recovery.

My alcohol addiction was ruining my marriage, my family relationships and my career. I was desperate. It didn’t take long after arriving at The Lakehouse Recovery Center for me to realize that it was the right choice for me to begin my recovery. The beautiful setting, the private rooms and the wonderfully prepared, healthy meals were but icing on the cake. The real deal for me began with a caring staff who helped me find hope through learning about the nature of the disease of addiction, studying the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, attending AA meetings, and being involved in a program of classes and self discovery that includes one on one counseling, yoga, self expression through art and being of service to others. The pet friendly environment at the Lakehouse makes it unique also, and being a dog lover, I cherish the memories of getting to know a fellow patient’s dog, Guido, while I was there. He was the canine shipmate on our sunset boat rides on Lake Sherwood. I am now very involved in AA. Having found a sponsor and gone through the Twelve Steps, I have gained tools to avoid triggers that may cause relapse in the future and have formed lasting friendships. I recently celebrated seven months of sobriety and my marriage has been revived. This journey has truly been a blessing and I feel deep gratitude to The Lakehouse for my new life.

I went into the Lakehouse thinking I\'d never get sober. This facility run by an amazing staff of extremely loving and caring individuals changed my life. Although my stay was only 28 days, in that amount of time my life changed drastically. Never in my life have I met people as remarkable as the staff at the Lakehouse. If anyone is serious about changing their life and finding a solution to their problem this is the place to be. In a nutshell this place works, and now my life has become something I never thought imaginable. Thank you Lakehouse
