Based out of Malibu, California, Centered Health is a CARF-accredited residential treatment facility for adolescents in recovery from addiction and co-occurring disorders. Boys and girls between the ages of 12 and 17 are welcome to attend, each with individualized treatment plans and luxurious accommodations.

Accommodations and Food

The Centered Health facility has a total of six beds in spacious, shared rooms separated by gender. Each comes equipped with queen-sized beds. The house itself is a modern-looking home built into a cliffside overlooking the beach; with sprawling balconies, tennis courts, a swimming pool, a game room and many shared living areas both indoors and outdoors. Throughout their stay, clients are served three healthy and delicious meals designed to suit their preferences with the help of on-site nutritionists and chefs.

Treatment and Staff

Upon intake, all residents go through an initial assessment process to help staff members determine their needs. While each plan may vary, all include some combination of individual and group therapy rooted in evidence-based practices like CBT, DBT and psychoeducation. Alternative approaches include art therapy, music therapy, psychodrama and equine therapy. Family therapy is also available upon request. In addition, all clients learn basic 12-step recovery concepts as well.

Throughout their stay, residents work with on-site tutors to keep up with their schoolwork. Individual therapy takes place between three to five times a week, depending on each resident’s needs. Finally, extensive dual diagnosis support is available as well. The average length of stay is 60 to 90 days.

The staff at Centered Health consists of psychologists, psychiatrists, LMFTs, MSWs, RNs, equine therapists and additional Master’s and PhD-level staff.

Extras

Residents also participate in rotating recreational activities as part of the program; which may include yoga, hiking trips, surfing, swim lessons, gardening and fitness groups. Career counseling, reading groups, poetry classes and gardening lessons are also offered. Residents dealing with issues of self-harm or eating disorders can get the help they need in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Once a client completes a program, they can work with the staff members to develop an aftercare plan that places them in local outpatient programs.

In Summary

Overall, Centered Health is a well-rounded facility which provides evidence-based and holistic care for a wide range of behavioral health issues. Both boys and girls are welcome to attend with flexible lengths of stay, individualized treatment and recreational activities built into the program. While the luxury experience does come at a price, Centered Health remains a comprehensive program for adolescents in early recovery.

  1. A family member had great success at Centered Health, professional staff, nice facility. He has totally changed his life, my family is grateful for all they have done. We would highly recommend to others.

  2. We are so thankful for the help our daughter received here. Addiction is a very hard thing for a family to deal with, and the people here were very understanding and knowledgeable. The facility is gorgeous, and the surroundings provide a lovely place to heal and grow.

  3. The son of a close friend was sent here for treatment after attending multiple facilities that did nothing to help his addiction. I’m happy to report that he is doing much better now. From what my friend has told me, the facility is very welcoming and based in a beautiful location with lots of activities for the teens to do. Although he was there for treatment, he really enjoyed himself and felt like the staff and faculty were very concerned about his well-being. Based on this, I would highly recommend this place for troubled teens.

    I had a friend that went here this facility changed her life, based on her experience I would give Centered Health five stars. Before this she had been in several rehabs

    I felt so much better after leaving Centered Health. The atmosphere was very warm and welcoming, and I will definitely visit this location again. Highly recommend!

  6. FOr an individual that is recovering from just about any mental or even physical set back, this facility is an excellent place to put all the pieces back together, excellent program.

  7. A close friend of mine sent her daughter here and she was very happy with the treatment her daughter received. The staff catered to her daughter’s needs and created a plan that would ensure success. My close friend told me it really helped her daughter to heal and love herself more. She also said her daughter has learned how to deal with issues or situations that may come up in her life in a positive manner.

  8. Friendly staff. They really go out of their way to help you and generally seem to care about you and your health and well-being.

  9. Great place with great views. For anyone that needs a place to clear their head and have a second chance at life, this is the place. I wish I could give a rating. It helped change my family’s life.

  10. I had a family friend who went here and they helped turn his life around a great deal. He was addicted to drugs and his life was in shambles, being here helped him to regain the life he was losing. He no longer is addicted and he has a chance at a better life now thanks to the people here who helped him through his rough time in life.

  11. My younger brother was abusing drugs and as a family we decided to take him to the facility. The center offers condusive environment for recovery and whats best he was still able to continue with his studies. I highly recommend to other parents.

  12. One of my closests friends went here and had an amazing detox experience. Having a healthy friend back is one of the greatest gifts I received. Thanks to this facility!

  14. After scheduling a appointment we met with the staff an they explained the treatment that she would received. We were very happy to find out that she wouldn’t miss any of her school work. That they had tutors so she could keep up with her school work. She spent a few months at the center an every time we talked to her she was in good spirits.We are so happy that a friend told us about this place.

  15. I have to say that I have had a positive experience with Centered Health. Some years back I went there and everyone from I remembered was super nice! I also learned yoga and horseback riding when I was there. They made me feel that I wasn’t alone and made a bad situation ten times better!!

  16. Centered Health has many good points for those who are looking for a luxurious rehab center that does what they describe. I know by experience not from me but from my own child. I think that we both learned more than we thought since their stay. One thing that I liked about the area was how they do assessments for each individual. My child just wasn’t just another person to them, but someone that they wanted to help and save. As a parent, it’s hard to admit that something isn’t right in the family, but now I don’t mind sharing the story. There is no shame and (I didn’t fail as a parent), that’s one thing that Centered Health has taught me. Thank you for helping my teen and for saving our family! My child also wanted me to share this review on here.

  17. Friendly place that has a lot of different things for their patients to do. It’s not just another rehab clinic. Good place for troubled teens that need a second chance. Would recommend to other parents who are looking for a nice place to send their teen and would like actual results.

  18. A few years ago my younger brother was admitted to Centered Health. I honestly didn’t think that it would help him, it just sounded like all those other “luxurious centers” that were too good to be true. Luckily I was wrong and it did help him. I hope that any parent or young adult reading this will be inspired. It’s not just another place with an amazing setting!

  19. Staff Coordinator on

    I worked there for many years as a staff coordinator and I had two distance family members that were sent to Centered Health. From my point of view, I like working at Centered Health and from their point of view, they found the place to be beyond their expectations. At Centered Health we don’t want to make people feel like they are taboo or anything, we strive to give the kids a relaxing atmosphere as well as fix their problems. I know I do everything in my power to make sure that it happens. I do feel bad that others have had a bad experience and I do give my sincere apologies. I am also happy to hear success stories too!

  20. The accommodations weren’t bad, at first I wasn’t too keen on sharing a room. But really it’s nice because you don’t feel alone and you can share stories. That’s the thing that I loved about Centered Health, it felt like a family. I have been sent to different places and none felt this welcoming. I didn’t feel like I was at a rehab center. It has been years since I’ve been there, but I still remember most of the people. I also remember the tips that they shared too!

  21. Centered Health is luxurious, the location is impressive, it’s a comfortable place, the nurses are amazing, the staff is compassionate, and there seems to be a high rate of those who get better. I will say that Centered Health is one of few that deals with a lot of issues that young adult will go through. The reason I went was that of some behavior issues and I had a friend there who was there because of a drug dependency. So there are all kinds of people there.

  22. I have to agree with the positive reviews from other parents on here. Our daughter has never been better since she left Centered Health. She is back into the things she loves like volleyball and music. She has been clean for almost a year (since leaving the facility) and is going to be graduating High School with her class. I’m super proud of her and what she has accomplished on getting herself back on track. She was the one who actually wanted to go. I’m glad for places like Centered Health and how they treat their patients. She was never made to feel like she was worthless and was made to feel like she was going to overcome her obstacles.

  23. I did see the changes in my child once they left Centered Health. It was a good change and now they are happy and healthy. It’s great to see that your child isn’t killing themselves over a dependency. The place itself is nice and the staff seemed very knowledgeable. My child enjoyed the extra activities too and never missed a lesson from school either.

  24. From reading this post, I have to agree with all the amenities that was talked. I remember the poetry classes actually! For years I dealt with anxiety and other issues, but after going to Centered Health that all changed for me. I know that not everyone has had the same experience as myself, but I honestly do feel that the place is helping young adults.

  25. I have to say that I have had a positive experience with Centered Health. Some years back I went there and everyone from I remembered was super nice! I

  26. An uncle of mine stayed here. The staff personalizes your needs well to create the most successful program possible. It seemed like a very pleasant and positive stay for him.

  27. We thought that there was almost no hope left for my sister. We had tried so many different facilities. As a last stitch effort we sent her to Centered Health and it was the best thing we’ve ever done for her. She’s been clean for 4 months now and I’ve never seen her so happy. I can’t thank you enough!

  28. I’ve never seen my sister so happy and healthy looking as she is now. We sent her to Centered Health when she hit complete rock bottom, I hate to say it but I honestly didn’t think there was much hope left after so many failed attempts, but they performed a miracle! She told me that while she was there it didn’t feel like she was in treatment, she felt like she was around friends that just wanted to see her get better and that’s what made the difference. I finally have my sister back. It’s been 4 months now and she’s stronger and more radiant than ever. I can’t even begin to express how grateful I am.

  29. My review goes like this:
    Pros: Very luxurious, many programs that are fun and exciting, staff was nice, helped me become a better person, and the food was good!
    Cons: The only con is my reasoning of being there, which I don’t want to get into detail.

  30. As a nurse and as someone who has had two family members go to Centered Health, I would review the place has five out of five stars!! I will admit I was hesitant, but after seeing the results of the place and how it changed them for the better, I am proud to give it such a good review. So my advice is see for yourself!!

  31. Centered Health isn’t joking when they say that the average stay time is 60 to 90 days. I know this for a fact. I was there a few years back and after the stay my life has been a track. I never thought I would be in college or let alone actually finishing High School. When I was there I think I learned more than I did in school. There were so many people that want to see you succeed. It’s a welcoming place. Oh, and art therapy does work!

  32. If I had to review the place I would give it 5 stars! The staff works very hard to make sure that their patients are taken care of. They go above and behind. I love also that it’s a place of healing and learning.

  33. The nurses and doctors were compassionate towards my daughter as well as other staff members. She really liked the programs especially the gardening. It helped with her anxiety. I do see a difference in her since she went to Centered Health and it’s a good difference. She’s much happier!

  34. I believe that Centered Health is overall a good place. I know several people who have had either a family member or a friend go there to get some kind of treatment. They all came back with a new and better outlook on life. So I feel that it has helped a lot of people. The area from what I’m told is breathtaking and there are a lot of activities too.

  36. Reading the reviews I see that they are split. Well, I want to say that I have had a good experience. My child was in a bad place and Centered Health helped them. They also helped me better understand addiction. The staff was super and the activities that they have for these young people amazes me.

  37. My sister went there and she told me several times how Centered Health was her lifesaver. Since leaving the place 2 years ago, she has been drug free!! So I have to give Centered Health a positive review for saving my sister and giving her the tools to have a happy and successful life.

  38. I have to say that I have had a positive experience with Centered Health. Some years back I went there and everyone from I remembered were super nice! I also learned yoga and horseback riding when I was there. They made me feel that I wasn’t alone and made a bad situation ten times better!!

  39. I personally felt that Centered Health was a good place for my child. My son was dealing with an eating disorder and has since overcame it because of the center. Also, he has gained so much more from going there. He has confidence and will be even pursing a degree in Psychology.

  40. FIVE STARS!! A family friend went here and is doing much better now. He is only a teenager, so was dealing with a lot of stuff – a broken home, direction in life, usual teenage stuff, however, he turned to drugs and alcohol as an escape. He was originally only going to go to rehab for 30 days, but wound up staying 60. Now that he is back home, he feels more equipped to handle what life throws at him. He has better coping skills and what he likes to call “tools” he can use instead of turning toward alcohol or drugs. I’ve seen such maturity in him and hope he never has to go back. Centered Health Rehab lives up to its reputation and I would recommend to others having similar issues with children.

  41. My best friends daughter went here and had a fantastic experience. She just reached 90 days sober and looks amazing!

  42. I was a kid who went there with minor things needed to treat and left with more depression suicidal thoughts and just a deep hatred of this place. I have flash backs of pain ,I had because wrongful prescriptions and now I think have ptsd from here. Don’t send your kid here. It only causes more pain

  43. Jackie Sinclair on

    Centered Health was the worst experience our family could have had. We were very fooled by the ocean views, on site chef, and things that appeared wonderful on the surface. The actual stability of the organization, owner, and staff were atrocious. Parents were taking their teens out and the organization has removed as many negative reviews that it can. This is not a place you should trust with the future of a troubled teen. We made a huge mistake in doing so and other parents have said the same.
