Los Gatos CaliforniaThe Basics

Set on twenty-three acres of redwoods and orchards near the Santa Cruz Mountains, Summit Estate Recovery Center offers luxury residential substance abuse treatment in Los Gatos, California, just ten miles south of San Jose. The comprehensive recovery program also has a detox facility (also in Los Gatos) and outpatient treatment at a nearby facility in Saratoga.

Summit Estate was founded by a family of recovery professionals. The residential treatment program, which began in 2011, combines evidence-based and alternative modalities and provides clients with a highly individualized and holistic approach to long-term recovery.

Accommodations and Food

Summit Estate’s boutique residential program only treats six clients at a time. Residents are housed in a well-appointed ranch home that features plush interiors, a sauna and fitness center. Residents are assigned a roommate, though single rooms are available for an additional fee. Rooms feature modern décor and full-size beds with pillow-top mattresses. Each room has its own marble bathroom with overhead heater.

Meals are prepared by a gourmet chef and planned by an addiction nutritionist who takes each client’s dietary needs and preferences into consideration.

Residents have access to a media center and can use computers for work-related purposes as well as make phone calls on the house phone under supervision. There are on-site laundry facilities for convenience. At least two staff members are on the premises at all times.

Treatment and Staff

Residents stay at Summit Estate for a minimum of 30 days, with some staying up to 90. After completing residential treatment, many step down into Summit Estate’s nearby outpatient program. Upon admission, each client receives a customized treatment plan that includes group and individual therapy. Therapists and facilitators use DBT as well as experimental treatment techniques such as yoga, Tai Chi  and mindfulness training.

Residents begin the day at 8 am with a check-in group and meditation or yoga followed by group and individual sessions with counselors and therapists. After a lunch break, group therapy continues which combines processing and pscyho-education. After the day’s final ‘close-out’ group at 6 pm, residents have dinner and are then encouraged to attend peer support meetings off-site, including 12-step, SMART Recovery and Refuge Recovery. Residents return to their rooms each night at 9 pm.

The treatment team includes MFTs, MSWs, Registered Recovery Workers (RRWs) and CADCs. Therapists are qualified to treat clients requiring dual diagnosis support. Residents needing medication management will be transported to appointments with off-site psychiatrists affiliated with Summit Estate.

Extras

Every Wednesday, residents are taken on an off-site recreational trip. Recent trips include kayaking, boating and bowling excursions. Residents may purchase optional services provided on-site including acupuncture, massage therapy, reflexology and nutritional counseling.

Summit Estate endorses family participation as an essential component to long-term success in recovery. Families and loved ones are encouraged to attend group and individual therapy to the extent the treatment team feels it’s beneficial to the resident. Families receive education on addiction and how to facilitate and support recovery after clients return home. Summit Estate also offers intervention services for families looking to direct their loved one into treatment.

In Summary

Summit Estate Recovery Center offers an unusually intimate and client-responsive approach to residential treatment. With a full array of recreational activities, clients have a balanced life will in treatment, also participating in alternative treatments alongside well-tested evidence-based therapeutic practices. Additionally, an outpatient track and detox services support the stepping down process, making Summit Estate Recovery Center ideal for those seeking a facility with a long-term commitment to each client’s success.

The place was amazing clean and had a very supportive staff. It was important to me that my friend stayed in a comfortable, welcoming, and luxurious environment. I knew this was the only way that he would be able to recover properly. The staff were caring, friendly, professional and found the perfect drug rehab center for my friend in less than 24 hours! He is on his way to rehabilitation and I have to thank Summit Estate for making that happen.Highly recommended!

    When I left treatment from Summit Estate Recovery Center I needed additional support to get a good foundation in my recovery. At Summit Estate taught me to live and let live. I learned how to keep myself and hygiene clean and they loved me as a friend supported me on how to get a sponsor. Where to attend meetings and to be an honest human being. Thank you Summit Estate staff for teaching me. My parents are happy too, as is my boss at work.Highly recommended!

  4. My son’s best friend went through Summit Estate Recovery Center and I was quite impressed with this place.  The clinical staff did an excellent with explaining all the details, time line, what expect and so forth…a very transparent, professional, kind, warm-hearted staff, for sure. He ended up being here for 6 days and it’s now been almost 9 months since leaving here and he’s still sober and doing better than ever! Thumbs up for Summit Estate!

  5. I have stayed and detoxed in my fair share of facility’s all over the United States and the compassion and genuine concern the staff and owners of Summit Estate Recovery Center show to their clients is incomparable to anywhere else I have been, everything from the home cooked food to the medical staff is hands down top of the line care, this is a place you can learn to be a productive member of society again and start taking the right steps in your recovery and future.The help I received at this facility has impacted me and put me on the right path and I recommend Summit Estate to anyone suffering from alcohol or drug addiction.
