PCH Treatment Center’s In-Residence Treatment Program in Los Angeles is for clients who are seeking an immersive psychological treatment experience while residing in a supportive, recovery-based living environment outside of their current housing arrangement. In the In-Residence Treatment Program, clients take time out from their careers, social and recreational lives, and housing environments to live in a safe, tranquil environment. The In-Residence Treatment Program offers over 40 hours per week of psychological treatment, relaxation activities, and healthy living experiences. The In-Residence Treatment Program represents an opportunity for people experiencing significant emotional and/or mental distress to temporarily remove themselves from stressful and/or less supportive environments and immerse themselves in a structured and emotional supportive experience enabling them to build and/or rebuild healthy patterns and lifestyles.
The In-Residence Treatment Program has a minimum duration of 30 days, with an average length of treatment of 60-90 days. All In-Residence clients will regularly consult with their treatment teams to determine the length of stay that is most conducive to their long-term recoveries.
How does PCH Treatment Center differ from a traditional residential treatment center?
PCH Treatment Center is not a true “Residential Treatment Program.” A Residential Treatment Program provides psychological treatment, care, and supervision within a residence house. At PCH Treatment Center we provide only housing in the peaceful and comfortable residence for our clients who then walk or are safely transported to our nearby stand-alone clinic where treatment takes place. We strongly prefer our model of treatment over more traditional models. Instead of sleeping, working, learning, eating, and then receiving therapeutic services in the same environment, our model of living in one environment and receiving services in another more effectively mimics “real world” scenarios. Many of our clients enjoy our set-up, likening it to going to school each day.
