Program Overview

Casa Serena looks at you as a whole person, not just your diagnosis. Our focus is on evidence-based treatment coupled with social model recovery, incorporating experiential therapies and a holistic approach. Experiential therapies include Psychodrama, Somatic Experience, Garden Therapy, Cooking, Art, Creative Writing, Meditation, and our Focus on Fitness Program.

Our evidence-based treatment modalities include DBT, CBT, ACT, Trauma Informed Therapy and Shame Resiliency. We are a unique program that also places focus on specific issues to women in recovery, including mothers who are facing some hard issues that their disease has brought upon the children and families. We are the only treatment program in Santa Barbara that offers Parenting Classes and Parent Coaching to those who are interested.
