How We Treat

Located in sprawling Southern California, Shadow Hills Recovery is a residential treatment facility that combines evidence-based therapies, alternative treatments and educational resources to treat some of the toughest cases of addiction.

We recognize that substance use disorders are not easy to treat and often require intensive care in a highly structured setting.

As a premier residential treatment facility in San Fernando Valley, many people start their recovery journeys with us. We have private accommodations for those who prefer their privacy, which include private bedrooms and bathrooms. Along with our comfortable and spacious living quarters, we also provide freshly-prepared meals, a relaxing swimming pool and hot tub and weekly sober activities.

Our Approach to Treating Substance Use Disorders

Because we are a residential rehab facility, our clients often come to us soon after detox. They are still healing and learning how to exist without drugs or alcohol. To address their mental, physical and emotional needs, our treatment is structured and intense, yet compassionate and motivating.

No two people are the same, which means there is no one-size-fits-all approach to treating addiction. Each client is given a personalized treatment plan that addresses their specific needs, including co-occurring mental health conditions and past trauma. If either of these are present, they will be treated with a combination of therapy and medication.

All treatment plans are designed to be adaptable, as each client heals in their own way, on their own time. What each client can expect is for their treatment plan to include the following:

Evidence-based treatments

Evidence-based treatments are treatments that have been backed by scientific research. These treatments typically include behavioral therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). By participating in these sessions, clients build the skills and habits they need to succeed in addiction recovery.

Holistic treatments

While evidence-based therapies are effective, the Shadow Hills Recovery treatment team believes in the ‘whole-person’ approach, which focuses on the mind and body for complete healing. This is why clients will also have access to a number of holistic therapies to strengthen their recovery such as art therapy, music therapy and breathwork. The hope is that our clients will find activities they enjoy and include them in their own lives at home.


Our world-class treatment team consists of licensed therapists, certified counselors and nurses who provide around-the-clock care and supervision. We also have psychiatrists and an addiction specialist doctor on staff who can prescribe medications to treat symptoms of depression, anxiety and other mood disorders. Our staff can also watch for adverse effects or drug interactions.

Comprehensive Treatment in a Caring, Compassionate Setting

Shadow Hills Recovery provides a supportive environment where clients can recover at their own pace. We provide them with a strong foundation and numerous tools and resources to support their recovery, while also limiting distraction from the outside world. As our clients progress through our treatment program, they can ‘step down’ to a lower level of care such as our Partial Hospitalization Program or an outpatient program.
