FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY WOMEN ONLY?
Many experienced treatment professionals agree that gender specific residential treatment programs are more effective and create an environment that supports a higher likelihood of long term recovery. You can feel safe to open up about painful things that need to be healed when you are with other women who have also struggled with issues like addiction, trauma and depression. The opposite sex can be a big distraction and undermine your ability to stay focused on your recovery and do the deep work that recovery requires. Clearly, rehab is not a good place to meet your next boyfriend. Our holistic recovery center team here at Villa Kali Ma believes that having a supportive women only environment is vital to allowing you to dive deep into the underlying causes of your pain and suffering so that you can heal your life.
HOW OFTEN WILL I MEET WITH MY THERAPIST?
The program at Villa Kali Ma is designed to provide individualized treatment, taking into account each individual client’s specific needs. Normally, clients will meet with one of our primary therapists twice per week and one or more of our trauma therapists for EMDR or Somatic Trauma Therapy, or both, depending on each client’s specific needs. Clients will also meet with our Individual Case Manager once per week for an individual session focusing on the needs of each individual and their specific circumstances. All of these individual appointments are adjusted to meet your treatment goals that are a part of your Individualized Treatment Plan, so the type and number of appointments per week can change depending on your needs and progress however, you will have at least 4-5 individual sessions per week.
HOW LONG IS THE PROGRAM?
At Villa Kali Ma, our women’s addiction recovery center approaches the treatment process by doing a thorough biological, psychological and social assessment of your life situation to find out what the presenting and underlying issues are. You and your primary therapist would then discuss your short and long-term treatment goals, as well as identify your strengths and possible barriers to reaching your recovery goals. You and your therapist would then come up with an individualized treatment plan for your recovery. For some, this could begin with an initial period of 30 days and for others, this plan could be up to 90 days.
You will meet with your therapist regularly to discuss your progress and re-adjust your goals, as needed. You will also meet with our case manager weekly to help you design an aftercare recovery plan that will begin immediately upon completion of your treatment plan. Our alumni program therapist will stay in touch with you on a regular basis for a minimum of a year following treatment. You will be invited to join our monthly yoga, meditation, and breathwork groups as well as participate in our sisterhood circle, which is our weekly online alumni support group meeting.

Qualified scholarship applicants will receive 50% off our regular cash pay rate. If you qualify and meet criteria, but are at full capacity, you will be added to our waiting list. The wait time is usually less than one month, but could be longer. If you are interested in applying, please call us at (760) 814-8214.
WHAT EXACTLY IS HOLISTIC RECOVERY?
Villa Kali Ma is a mind, body, and spirit holistic addiction recovery center for women offering programs that not only addresses the mental obsession to self-medicate, but goes beyond the symptoms to expose the pain that is underlying the obsession. We view this pain as sacred medicine. We do not want to numb the pain but instead we want to do the healing work that will allow the lingering emotional pain to be seen, heard, recognized and processed, so that we don’t keep holding past experiences in our cellular bodies. We do this work through proven holistic practices and modalities that allow a transformation to take place. We address the mental, physical and spiritual aspects of the past traumas that need to be healed and facilitate the healing process on all levels. We learn to care for ourselves on a daily basis with practices that relieve us of our need to self-medicate with alcohol, pills, substances, food, drama, shopping and any other self-sabotaging ways we used to cope with daily life.
IS MY FAMILY ALLOWED TO VISIT ME?
Yes! We encourage family involvement and you and your individual therapist will decide how that will progress. You can have your family members come in for face to face therapy sessions or you can do sessions by video conferencing or by conference call. We also have a Family Weekend Intensive once per month and we encourage all families to participate. This weekend begins on a Friday evening from 5:30-8:30 pm for introductions and ice breaking activities, then continues all day Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. This program is included and there is no charge to your family members, however they must provide their own transportation and travel expenses.
IS THIS A 12-STEP PROGRAM MODEL?
We believe in different strokes for different folks. Do we love the 12-Steps? Yes, but…only when you are ready and willing to do them. If you have an aversion to the 12-Step process, we get it. At Villa Kali Ma, you will be introduced to several types of support groups available to assist you in your long-term recovery goals and we want to help you find the ones that are right for you. Each week, we will attend several different types of support group meetings so that you can begin to get an idea of what each one has to offer. Sometimes, it’s just fear of the unknown that is the holdback, and maybe you already tried the 12-Step route and it didn’t work for you. We encourage you to stay open to trying new things and if at first you don’t succeed, maybe you try again? Ultimately, it will be your decision what program you want to attend, and you will be working with our Client Care Coordinator from day one to begin designing the perfect plan for YOUR RECOVERY.
