Program Synopsis: A 14-bed residential program with a non-public school day treatment component.Staff and program participants in southern California

About the Program:

A 14-bed residential treatment facility located in Lemon Grove with a non-public school which includes integrated mental health treatment services. The program provides a safe, stable, and highly structured environment by combining intensive staffing, a milieu culture, mental health interventions, and behavior modification.

Youth receive comprehensive assessment upon intake and receive ongoing evaluation throughout their stay. Individual, group, family, and milieu therapy is a part of everyday life. San Diego Dual Diagnosis also provides services in case management, medication support and monitoring, expressive arts, special education, crisis intervention, behavior management, and skill-building. The goal of the program is to maximize a youth’s level of functioning to enable them to engage in a pattern of everyday living similar to that of typical peers. We strive to increase each youth’s ability to live in an environment with less intensive services and structure.
