A Nurturing Way Out of Chaos

Our clients have been living their lives in chaos. Without professional help, they will continue to go down a path of despair.

When they enter treatment, our teens learn respect and self-care. They develop the discipline to build for the future. And they learn the importance of showing respect to others.

Another important lesson our teens learn is how to determine the difference between right and wrong and freely make the decision to choose right. With this and other basics firmly in place, these teens can begin to succeed and thrive when they return to regular life.

Our staff has the credentials and experience in both mental health and substance abuse treatment to offer life-changing understanding, expertise and support. In addition to licensed therapists, the staff includes social workers, counselors and various support personnel.

Our staff goes beyond clinical care. They offer what can’t be learned in school. They are loving people who truly feel the pain, needs and longings of our young women. The residents at Santa Lucia feel loved because they are.

Located in an attractive and comfortable residence in Salinas, Santa Lucia feels like home. The girls learn skills that serve them well when they return to their homes or start a life in new surroundings. To strengthen their chances for success, the girls in treatment attend classes in special schools in the Monterey County community.
