Tustin Family Campus is the smallest of three Southern California rehabs operated by Protoypes, an organization that treats women for substance abuse, mental illness and domestic violence. Through evidence-based therapies and vocational training, this long-term residential program provides women with tools for a new way of living.
Accommodations and Food
Tustin Family Campus houses up to 15 women and 34 children at a time, treating women ages 18 and above. Mothers can bring up to three children, with a requirement that one must be under the age of six and none are over the age of 10. Housing is located in the treatment building and women with children and those without have separate quarters. Clients share a cozy, dorm-like space with one other client. The rooms include twin-sized beds, dressers, carpeting and toys for the little ones.
For physical fitness, residents can participate in an on-site yoga class once a week and go for walks during free time. Smoking is restricted to the appropriate break times.
All meals are made and served by the clients themselves. The kitchen is stocked each week by the staff, who take suggestions before making the weekly grocery trip. The women work together on recipes of their choice, eating as a group in the dining hall. Those who did not cook wash the dishes and clean up the kitchen.
Treatment and Staff
Prototypes helps women who suffer from substance abuse, trauma, domestic abuse, complex medical conditions, anger management, legal issues and homelessness. Clients receive a psychiatric evaluation and guidance over the course of their six-to-nine month stay. A medical detox is not available, so clients must be physically stable before they are admitted.
The treatment approach uses evidence-based modalities in a therapeutic setting. Clients receive individual counseling at least once a week and several hours of group therapy each day. Group topics include relapse prevention, body image, parenting, employment, grief, trauma, abuse, codependency, processing and nutrition. Women are introduced to the 12 steps during on-site AA/NA meetings.
Vocational and educational training is also part of the program, with GED classes and college courses offered in the building’s classroom. Family involvement happens on the weekends with visitation, as well as during family therapy sessions. Mothers also have access to parenting skills classes.
The staff includes psychiatrists, CSACs, licensed mental health clinicians, job development counselors, housing specialists and parenting specialists.
Tustin Family Campus is a small, safe environment for women in recovery who have children. Though the program is $3,900 per month for those who able to pay, there is limited state funding that covers the entire cost for those who are financially incapable of covering the cost.
