A Treatment Center For Women, By Women

We treat women who are struggling with addictions to alcohol, opioids, methamphetamines, prescription pills, marijuana, benzodiazepines, club drugs. Our program also treats the following co-occurring disorders: depression, bipolar disorder, ADHD, trauma/PTSD, grief and loss issues, underlying eating disorders, borderline personality disorder, anxiety, and panic disorder. Casa Serena also has a top-rated family program to teach families of addicts how to support their loved ones’ recovery process, while providing them the tools they need for their own recovery.

60 Years of Successfully Helping Women

Casa Serena helps women and their families recover from addiction by providing evidence-based treatment services while building community, instilling self-determination, and empowering them with educational opportunities and financial literacy. For over 60 years, we have helped thousands of women recover from their addictions to alcohol & drugs, while managing dual diagnosis mental health disorders. Our facility provides both inpatient and outpatient treatment to meet you where you are. In addition, if you are pregnant, we welcome you at any stage of your pregnancy, and we will help connect you with the valuable resources you and your precious little one will need before and after delivery. Statistically, 12 months after completion of treatment 68% of our clients remained sober. 9 months after completion of treatment 90.9% were either employed or in school. Upon completion of treatment, 100% reported improved relationships with friends & family.

We See You As a Whole Person, Not Your Diagnosis

Casa Serena a unique program placing focus on specific issues to women in recovery, including mothers who are facing hard issues their disease has brought upon their children and families. Casa Serena is a rehab program designed for women-specific treatment. We understand how women can feel particularly vulnerable when examining their underlying issues from the disease of addiction. Gender-specific treatment provides the safety and containment needed in order for women to feel comfortable letting down their guard and doing the deep recovery work that will bring them freedom from alcohol and drug dependency. We are a unique program that recognizes all journeys are not the same. As the only nonprofit treatment center for women in Santa Barbara, we stand behind the fact that we are not in this for financial gain, and we have proudly been helping women recover in the same beautiful home for over 60 years.
