Coming to Treatment - What to Bring
The Residential Program program at Casa houses up to 22 women at any one time who stay with us from 30 up to 90 days. During this period of recovery, women work closely with an individual counselor to better understand their personal needs, goals and progress.

Similar to our inpatient services, all of our outpatient programs are abstinence based. Our recovery philosophy utilizes the vast experience and knowledge of our highly qualified staff. [ more ]
Our Sober Living Program makes it possible for women completing addiction treatment to move into a safe, structured, and supportive sober living setting for up to one year.

Casa is licensed/certified by the State of California and a Joint Commission accredited behavioral health treatment center for women seeking treatment for substance use disorders. Because our facility is neither a hospital nor nursing facility all participants must be well enough to participate in required activities. Screening is done during the admissions process to determine level of care requirements. [ more ]
