Cottage Residential Center is located in beautiful Santa Barbara, just three blocks from the beach. We specialize in the treatment of alcohol and drug addiction, providing a warm, inviting setting to begin the journey of recovery.

With 24 resident beds, we offer a reasonable cost alternative to a hospital setting, with the resources of Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital nearby. The program provides medically supervised care and is open to men and women 18 years and older.

Our collaborative treatment approach includes a team of highly experienced chemical dependency professionals, licensed psychotherapists and registered nurses, with referrals to physicians with a specialty in addiction medicine (American Society of Addiction Medicine).

Your care continues beyond our walls, as we help individuals integrate into appropriate community programs.

  • Over 40 years of experience in addiction treatment
  • Physicians experienced in addiction medicine available

Licensed and Accredited Treatment Facility

Cottage Residential Center combines a highly structured therapeutic environment with individual, group and family treatment.

Our program incorporates a full complement of activities that include a recovery-based curriculum, relapse prevention, stress management, coping skills development and continuing recovery planning.

We are licensed by the California Department of Health Care Services and accredited by the Joint Commission.

The facility and its grounds reflect Santa Barbara’s Spanish heritage and provide an intimate, peaceful setting. Both private and semi-private rooms are available, with the ocean and neighborhood parks located within a three-block radius.
