Individualized Treatment, Whole Family Healing

Our personalized approach to care designs treatment plans to support each person's specific needs, including dual diagnosis for those with both psychiatric and chemical dependency needs. Our programs treat the whole family, encouraging successful outcomes for both the chemically dependent and the family. Families are encouraged to participate fully in an intensive program that consists of education, multi-family group therapy, discharge planning and involvement in lifetime care activities.

Compassionate Care, Affordably Priced

Unlike most private facilities charging between $30,000 to $75,000 per month with rigid insurance restrictions, Cottage Residential Center’s private-pay fees are approximately $20,000 a month. Unusual for a private facility, the center works with most large insurance and managed care organizations including Blue Cross, Blue Shield, PacifiCare, Aetna, United Behavioral Health, Value Options, and Managed Health Network.
