Villa Kali Ma offers recovery for women who suffer from substance abuse, mental health disorders, and trauma. In our integrative sustainable treatment programs, we bring deep healing and transformation to women’s lives.

Our signature approach to healing is to use paths from East and West to guide women to look further within, beyond their biggest pain and fear, to discover the wonderful truth of who they are in their true essence and nature.

We won’t claim it’s an easy road, but it is a worthy one. What we offer women is reliable guidance from start to finish. We hope you will join us on this journey of joy, healing, and self-discovery.

Villa Kali Ma’s Holistic Residential Treatment Center for Women

Holistic Residential Treatment for Women in CaliforniaVilla Kali Ma offers full spectrum coverage to address any addiction recovery needs a woman has. We also address co-occurring disorders and provide treatment for trauma.

Most people with addiction are recommended to attend inpatient treatment if possible, as this is the safest, most secure, and most comfortable way to transition from a life dependent on substances to living as a clean and sober woman in the world.

Residential treatment is favored where possible because it provides a protected environment in which you are insulated from any opportunities to relapse.

Residential treatment is frequently preceded by medically supervised detox to help a person through the withdrawal process safely, and followed by a less structured level of care, called Intensive Outpatient. Villa Kali Ma has treatment options for all levels of care: detox, inpatient, outpatient, and partial hospitalization.

The Villa: Our Residential Treatment Facility

Our residential treatment program is located at the Villa, our specialized center for women located in the hills of Carlsbad, north of San Diego. Our sunny Villa sits on an acre of land and provides a safe, peaceful environment for your inpatient recovery journey.

The Villa has a relaxed, home-like environment and offers beautiful rooms with comfy beds and luxury linens. You can also enjoy the pool, gardens, and meditation rooms during free hours. Two of our rooms provide views of the ocean, and one has a private patio leading to the garden and meditation labyrinth.

The Villa reflects our understanding of the need for peace, comfort, safety, and harmony in your environment so that you can feel fully free to focus on your recovery story and path to freedom.
