Prado House is located in Colton, part of California’s San Bernardino County, and provides residential recovery treatment exclusively for women experiencing substance abuse problems. Framed by beautiful, flowering trees, and secluded enough to make our clients feel safe while they’re on the path to recovery, Prado is in the perfect location.
Many clients feel very nervous and vulnerable when they begin addiction treatment, so we’ve cultivated a really welcoming environment at Prado House. The moment people arrive; they feel part of our community. The interior is homely and natural, and there are no clinical colours or medical smells – one of our greatest priorities is not making any of our clients feel like they’re “sick”.
What does treatment at Prado House involve?
At Prado House, treatment is personalised to every individual. Everyone has their own recovery plan written for them based on their needs, addictions and goals. We’re guided by the 12-step philosophy, which teaches total abstinence from harmful substances, and the groups and services we provide are all in line with this.
Our treatment involves:
Individual addiction counseling
Alcohol and drug abuse doesn’t just affect the physical body; it affects people’s mental health and spirituality too. When someone is consistently destroying and harming their body, they begin to develop a very negative opinion of themselves. It’s paramount that our treatment addresses this, so we look after people’s minds, bodies and spirits simultaneously.
The program at Prado House is quite structured; the fundamental activities and treatments are a compulsory part of everyone’s timetable. We think it’s essential that everyone contribute to the facility and help maintain a clean and tidy environment, so all clients help out. Not only does this help them feel more responsible for their environment, it builds the strength of our community even more.
Many people who leave Prado House leave it feeling positive about this new, sober chapter of their lives. They bring their lifelong friends with them on that journey too.
