When you seek treatment at Casa Palmera, you’ll be integrated into a rich history of behavioral healthcare that embraces the fundamentals of recovery, philosophy and psychology. Our approach incorporates four elements — clinical, lifestyle, mind-body support and environmental — to assist you in finally beating drug or alcohol addiction or managing a mental health disorder.

  • Clinical: We use the latest integrative medical approaches in combination with evidence-based psychotherapeutic modalities and trauma-informed care.
  • Lifestyle: With an emphasis on fitness, balanced nutrition, stress management and spiritual reflection, we teach patients how to live a healthy and rewarding life.
  • Mind-Body Support: Patients can participate in what interests them most, including mindfulness activities, yoga, tai chi, self-hypnosis, adventure therapy, transcendental meditation, acupuncture, massage therapy and on-site gym.*
  • Environmental: We provide 24/7 nursing care within a safe, luxurious environment in a warm coastal community.

Meeting the Need to Treat Substance Use & Mental Health Disorders

At Casa Palmera, we know that giving well-rounded care is paramount to your success in recovery. It’s a rare thing for a recovery center to be licensed for primary addiction and primary mental health care – we are proud to be able to provide high-quality service for both conditions in various levels of care, from detox and residential to outpatient programming.*
