Residential Treatment

Design for Change Recovery's gender specific residential rehab program in Lancaster, CA is a 12-Step based treatment program that incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and holistic treatment. A residential rehabilitation program (otherwise known as an inpatient drug treatment program) is a live-in program that helps treat addictions including alcoholism and substance abuse. Our clients are guided through the entire 12-Step process, so they go through the steps while they're in treatment. This is a unique opportunity, as many wait until after treatment is over to start the steps. Our clients begin learning how to incorporate 12 step principles into their daily lives so they are prepared to continue using recovery tools once they have completed our residential inpatient rehab program here in Lancaster, CA.

As the most affordable addiction treatment in Lancaster, California, we work to make our services available to each person struggling with addiction, regardless of their circumstances. Investing in your sobriety is the most rewarding and important type of investment you can make and taking steps to building a new, sober life is the best thing you can do. Some people may hold back on getting treatment because they feel they cannot afford it, they can't miss work or their family will miss them too much. We also work with clients who do not have insurance to create specialized payment plans for them as well. We do our best to help in any way we can because we deeply care about helping those in need.
