We specialize in the treatment of substance use disorders, providing a supportive setting to begin the journey of recovery. We have over 45 years of experience providing treatment to help people achieve and maintain lasting sobriety.

Our program provides medically supervised care, with ease of access to the resources of Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital nearby. We offer both private and semi-private rooms for up to 24 adults. Our collaborative treatment approach offers a team of highly experienced professionals, which includes, registered nurses (RN’s) and licensed therapists (LMFT’s), with referrals to a team of physicians with specialization in addiction medicine (American Society of Addiction Medicine).

Your care continues beyond our walls, as we help individuals successfully navigate the transition from residential treatment to ongoing levels of care in the community.
