Questions We Hear From Clients and Families

During residential mental health treatment, clients live full-time at a treatment center for the duration of their program. Helix Treatment Centers is a private home located in the beautiful Mt. Helix area of San Diego. Residential treatment can be a welcome alternative to hospitalization, offering a much more comforting, home-like, and familiar day-to-day experience.

Residential care ensures that you will receive the best mental health treatment and support needed for healing. Helix offers both the intensity and duration of care necessary to go beyond immediate stabilization to achieve sustainable change.

Many women choose residential care at Helix because they haven’t been able to achieve a stable and satisfying life despite their best efforts. This changes after a stay with us. Our treatment program allows for relief from suffering to achieve sustainable change. Many clients make more progress in a few months at Helix Treatment Centers than in years of outpatient therapy.

We offer specialized care and amenities that create a unique mental health treatment experience for you.

Highlights include:

  • Shared or private accommodation options
  • World-class clinical staff
  • Individualized treatment plans
  • Health and wellness-focused

Through our years of practice, we have observed and learned what works best for our clients, and designed a treatment dynamic that is immersive, comfortable, and inclusive. The result is a complete experience to support you as you cultivate a new sense of wholeness, stability, and health.

Our clinical team are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric disorders and co-occurring issues. We employ a unique and effective combination of psychological testing, psychiatry, psychotherapy, and integrative therapies. We recognize that each woman is unique, each with different treatment goals and journey ahead. Using information gathered during your initial assessment we combine innovative treatment modalities, group therapy, and holistic therapies to create a truly individualized treatment program you won’t experience in any other program.

We have designed our program to make your stay at Helix purposeful and life-changing. Days are structured to include the best combination of therapies available to help you recover, and are paced to allow for intensity of treatment balanced by time for private reflection and restorative relaxation.

At Helix Treatment Centers, we believe that you’re able to do your best therapeutic work when you feel safe, welcome, and at home in your surroundings. Tucked away in the scenic Mt. Helix neighborhood of San Diego, our beautiful residential gender-specific treatment home for women offers a choice of private and semi-private rooms to suit your needs. You can enjoy our comfortable common areas and lovely outdoor spaces that inspire reflection and a sense of well-being.

With a maximum of six clients, you begin your healing process in an intimate environment with personalized care. You can enjoy our beautifully landscaped yards and gardens, and savor the gourmet meals prepared by our professional chefs. Use of mobile phones, laptops, and tablets are permitted during designated hours so you have the option of keeping on top of business and personal responsibilities. Private suites are available, and we invite pets to stay with you during treatment (private room required), so you can benefit from the support they provide.
