Residential Treatment

Pacific Lodge’s residential treatment program delivers around-the-clock intensive services in a safe, structured, and predictable environment. Our comprehensive intake and assessment process identifies each youth’s initial and emerging treatment needs. Family-centered, multi-disciplinary treatment planning assures that individualized therapeutic approaches are provided for each young person and his family.

The Lodge accepts clients between the ages of 13 and 18 who might benefit from our residential treatment program. Each arriving client undergoes alcohol and chemical dependency assessment as well as educational assessments. He also undergoes a complete physical, along with medical history, dental, and vision screenings. Since 1993, our residents have come to the Lodge through the juvenile justice system. The majority of youth at Pacific Lodge come from depressed socio-economic neighborhoods, primarily in Los Angeles County, although we accept clients from all counties in California.

Our campus is located on ten acres of wooded land where teenaged boys thrive in a residential community setting, immersed in therapeutic services. While they are in treatment, residing in three 17-bed homelike cottages, their families also receive supportive counseling. Each youth has access to a range of proven and innovative services, including an accredited on-site School, Individual, Group, and Family Therapy, as well as Integrated Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders Treatment.
