PCH Treatment Center’s In-Residence Treatment Program 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 a time out from their careers, social and recreational lives, and housing environments to come live in PCH’s Grandview Residence or one of PCH Treatment Center’s approved sober living houses. While in the In-Residence Treatment Program, clients will receive 40+ hours a 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?
A Residential Treatment Program provides psychological treatment, care, and supervision within a residence house. At PCH Treatment Center we provide a peaceful and comfortable residence for our clients who then walk or are safely transported to our nearby stand-alone treatment clinic.
Because we do not provide treatment within our residences, we are not a traditional residential treatment center. The State of California Community Care and Licensing Division has evaluated PCH’s Grandview Residence and found it to be in full compliance with all regulations. Thus, our residence has received an exemption from licensing (because care and treatment are not offered at the residence). However, 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.
