CASA Recovery provides 30-day, all-inclusive California-based alcohol and substance abuse recovery. With a comfortable location in Southern California and a holistic approach to treatment, CASA Recovery is able to provide an ideal environment for most clients seeking refuge from alcohol abuse. In addition to their standard 30-day treatment program, CASA Recovery also offers an intensive evening outpatient program with flexible evening sessions available three nights per week. And for those patients participating in the traditional 30-day treatment program, medical and sober living referrals are available.

Holistic Approach to Treatment
Finding the right combination of treatment methods for clients with alcohol abuse can be difficult, which is why so many treatment facilities are turning to a more holistic, personalized approach to treatment. At CASA Recovery, patients enjoy beachfront living and outdoor excursions, in addition to a wide range of treatment individual and group treatment practices.
Clients who choose treatment with CASA Recovery receive a complete initial assessment to assess specific treatment and recovery needs. This assessment allows the professionals at CASA Recovery to build a personalized approach to a client's treatment. Available treatment options include the following:
- One-on-one psychotherapy
- One-on-one counseling and case management
- Weekly massage and acupuncture
- Gym training 3x/week
- Optional faith-based treatment
- Process therapy
- Relapse prevention
- Testimonial groups
- Anger management
- Goal setting
- Art therapy
- Gentle yoga
- Guided meditation
- Energy healing
- Beach activities
In addition to the above-listed activities and treatment options, clients also engage in extra-curricular activities such as movie nights, bowling, kayaking, and whale watching.
With numerous patient testimonials available to read on their website, CASA Recovery provides further insight into the patient experience and an individual take on its treatment options and offerings. The provided patient testimonials are taken from 2013, which helps to provide a relatively recent account of CASA Recovery's practices, and compared to competitors, many of whom, if they include testimonials at all, provide outdated accounts from patients who attended the facility more than five to ten years ago.
Wide Insurance Coverage
CASA Recovery is covered by a wide selection of insurance companies and plans, including nearly all PPO insurance providers, Aetna, Cigna, and more. They do not, however, accept Medicare, Medicaid, MediCal, or HMOs. And if your specific insurance is not listed above, feel free to contact CASA Recovery directly and see if you are coverage, as they claim to be covered by virtually every insurance company.
- Short-term treatment
- No on-site detox
- Off-site living quarters
With their standard 30-day treatment package, CASA Recovery has a much shorter program than most of its competitors. This may be ideal for some clients, but for others longer treatment is needed. And though CASA Recovery does allow for extended stays and longer-term treatment, it does not fall in line with their staple service, which is the all-inclusive 30-day program.
No On-Site Detox
CASA Recovery does not provide medical services or on-site detox for its clients. Clients must undergo detox prior to arriving at the treatment facility, and that detoxification is not included in the all-inclusive 30-day treatment package.
3Off-site Living Quarters
While this does not need to be a con, it very well can be. CASA Recovery provides clients with off-site living quarters, located at up-scale residences near the treatment facility. These residences classified as "sober living" spaces, and clients are then given transportation to and from the treatment facility where they attend sessions and receive care from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. each day. Off-site living quarters can be difficult for clients who require more one-on-one care and have health problems associated with their alcohol abuse recovery. Because of this, off-site living, without medical care, can provide a unique difficulty for many clients.
The Bottom Line
With wide insurance coverage and a great location in Southern California, CASA Recovery can be a great option for virtually any client suffering from alcohol abuse; however, for clients who require on-site medical care, CASA Recovery may not be the right choice. If a client is looking for short-term treatment, then the all-inclusive 30-day treatment program at CASA Recovery can be a refreshing option when compared to other programs.
