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.


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.
