Ventura Recovery Center


Ventura Recovery Center Review

Since 2012, Ventura Recovery Center in Thousand Oaks, California has provided detox, residential treatment, extended care and sober living for clients battling substance abuse issues. Its continuum of care is designed to allow clients to step-down from one phase of treatment to the next, until they are ready for independent living.

Accommodations and Food

The Ventura Recovery Center Siesta House treatment facility is located in a large home in a quiet residential neighborhood. The house provides private and semi-private rooms that are beautifully appointed with spacious closets, vaulted ceilings and new bathrooms.

A gourmet Chef prepares all meals, and additional snacks can be found in one of the expansive marble kitchens. Outdoor recreation areas, a spa, a fitness center tennis court and sauna provide areas for physical recreation, while private patios and a library can be utilized for private reflection.

Treatment and Staff

Clients are provided individualized treatment plans after an initial assessment, and placed in programs that range from 90 days to one year. Those who need it are provided with medically supervised detox, which typically lasts between three days and one week. During the first treatment phase, clients are offered structure to help them adjust to sober life. They are paired with a primary therapist. They have a daily schedule that includes individual therapy, including EMDR and group therapy, which utilizes a CBT approach. Group topics include conflict resolution, parenting support, grief counseling, stress management, help with LGBT, work and career issues. Dual diagnosis support for co-occurring issues such as depression, anxiety and PTSD is provided, as needed. Clients also participate in regular off-site 12-step meetings, immersing themselves in that community.

The second phase of treatment focuses on underlying causes and conditions that led to substance abuse. This includes therapy focused on trauma, anger, low self-esteem, abandonment or dysfunctional family systems. It is in this phase that clients begin to put into practice what they have learned, and can continue to live at the facility or begin transitioning into sober living or move home and participate in the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).

The final phase—ongoing recovery—combines optional sober living and outpatient treatment. In the Ventura Sober Villas, clients still given freedom and privacy while still under the supervision of a live-in residential manager. The sober living environment is a luxury apartment building, where the residents are granted autonomy to work or go to school and expected to prepare their own meals. During this phase, clients must demonstrate an understanding of 12-step recovery, have a sponsor and work their steps.  The outpatient program entails one groups session per week and participants are required to attend the weekly on-site alumni meeting at the Villas. They are exposed to a healthy, balanced lifestyle, a strong peer support group and guidance from alumni who have walked a similar path.

Staff supervises clients 24/7 and consists of registered nurses, a primary therapist, as well as LCDCs, Master’s-level therapists and a psychiatrist.


Physical, recreational and spiritual activities are also provided and are aimed at giving clients the necessary life skills to maintain sobriety.

The luxury sober living component of treatment is offered to all clients.

In Summary

Ventura Recovery Center provides unique, affordable luxury treatment for clients that wish to slowly transition from residential care to independent living. Ventura Recovery is an awesome choice for those seeking a long-term program that offers extensive range of treatment for substance abuse and dual diagnosis support in a lovely residential environment.
