Residential Treatment Program

Impact Residential has a well-earned reputation as a no-nonsense, principled program that provides essential education and tools for individuals and families seeking quality, long-term recovery from substance use. We are located on a beautiful 2.5-acre suburban campus in Pasadena, CA. Our home includes recently renovated living quarters, a professional-grade kitchen, dining facilities, treatment rooms, and recreational areas. All residents are prepared and served three balanced meals a day under the supervision of a registered nutritionist, a talented chef and skilled kitchen staff.”

Individual Counseling

Impact counselors are first and foremost graduates of Impact. They understand on a very personal level just where you are at in your treatment. The staff is comprised of certified substance use disorder counselors who are trained in specific counseling techniques and evidence-based psycho-social interventions and therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Relapse Prevention and Seeking Safety–a trauma informed therapy that addresses PTSD events in the addict’s life. Individual psychological services are available on site as well.

The Phase System

Progress in our treatment program is measured by a “phase system” comprised of three phases total. Starting with the “First Phase”, each client is expected to meet certain benchmarks and milestones according to their treatment plans. Progress is reflected in treatment planning, specific goals and strategies as the client begins to experience the process of change and early recovery. The goal is to gradually reintroduce the client to family, community and employment structures as a physically, mentally and spiritually stronger person. In early recovery and post treatment, Impact remains an important ally in our clients journey towards long-term recovery by providing excellent resources for stable housing and employment/education services.
