Etta is by far the best house manager I have ever had. She is one of the most hard working females I have ever met in my life. I love Etta.

When I prioritize the reasons that today I am 240 days sober!! I list God first & Soledad 2nd! & That is an absolute fact. My initial move to a sober living in California did not include Soledad but how grateful i am that God had a different plan. From the moment I was picked up at the airport I knew I was in the right place. The therapists, administrative staff, & house & day managers are absolutely amazing & felt more like FAMILY than employees of Soledad & now I am also grateful to Soledad because I am an employee as well!! The support I received whether it was therapeutic, Drs appointments, insurance or Short term disability assistance was phenomenal & readily given. I always FELT KELLY MATTERED which is something we don't feel from the world while on active addiction. I will end with this: if you have reached the point of Desperation due to your addiction & are ready to start living a healthy life as we were all meant to then SOLEDAD Treatment is exactly who & where you should be. GOD BLESS SOLEDAD & THE STAFF
The staff at Soledad is above and beyond what I could have expected. This is an excellent sober living facility!!

I finally found a place where I could be safe. My entire life I've been searching for stability, unconditional love and a chance to have my own identity. I found that here at Soledad House. It wasn't easy and I stood in my own way a lot. The people at Soledad never gave up on me but they didn't baby me either. They let me know daily that I was worthy of living the life I had always imagined. They helped me to begin looking at my trauma and the shame around it. At Soledad House I am surrounded by the most powerful women who understand the seriousness of this disease and the courage it takes to fight it. Without this program I don't think I would be here right now. I am eternally grateful for Soledad House and the women on this journey with me. If you are looking for a program for you or someone else, please look into this one!

I wish I had heard of Soledad earlier. It would’ve cut down a lot on my time spent in treatment if I had gotten to go straight to such an organized, segmented program that actually helps you set up for discharge and begin your life outside of treatment. Best treatment facility I’ve been to.
I will have 4 years of sobriety in a few months. I owe so much of that to Soledad. I will forever be grateful for my time there. No recovery program is perfect, but I can confidently say that they genuinely care about every woman that walks through their doors.

After 70 days of treatment from my previous treatment center, I decided to come to Soledad House. Let me tell you... best decision I ever made in a lifetime. What Soledad has instilled in me are things I will always carry in my recovery. The staff, counselors, doctors and admin make this place what it is. The homes are beautiful and the support I have received from the girls at this program will last a lifetime. I am almost 6 months sober now and owe it to this place. They also offer aftercare, which I am going to, and sober living as well. I dont think I would have come as far as I am now in my recovery if it was not for Soledad House. If you are ready for chance of a life changing experience , Soledad House is the place for you. THANK YOU SOLEDAD!


The Connection Between Addiction and Mental Health

Nearly half of those battling substance use disorders also face mental health challenges like anxiety, depression, PTSD, or bipolar disorder. This dual diagnosis can intensify the struggle to maintain sobriety and lead to severe personal and financial consequences.

When it comes to dual diagnosis, it’s often unclear which issue developed first, as there are many overlapping factors, including past trauma, genetics, environmental stressors, and illness. However, one thing is clear: successful recovery requires addressing both disorders simultaneously.

Possible Symptoms of a Dual Diagnosis

Identifying dual diagnosis can be challenging since each case is unique, but some common signs include:

  • Sudden behavioral changes
  • Withdrawal from social activities
  • Risky behaviors
  • Misuse of prescription medications
  • Reliance on substances to cope with mental health symptoms
  • Increased substance tolerance

Our Approach to Dual Diagnosis Treatment

We employ an integrated intervention approach to treat both substance use disorders and mental health conditions effectively. Each patient receives personalized treatment plans tailored to their specific needs. Our therapy programs, including individual and group therapy, help patients identify triggers and develop healthy coping skills for a drug-free life.

Inpatient rehabilitation, following a successful detox program, offers a supportive environment away from daily temptations and stresses, significantly increasing the odds of long-term recovery. Psychotherapy helps patients explore their backgrounds to identify the root causes of their difficulties and develop effective coping strategies. Medication may also play a role in addressing underlying mental health issues.
