FAQ — Residential Program
Do you take insurance?
We are not in-network with any insurance companies, however we accept all PPO’s. You will need to pay the full 30-day rate before admission and monthly thereafter. However, our insurance coordinator will verify your out of network benefits, obtain any necessary pre-authorization and submit the claim forms on your behalf. We cannot guarantee how much your insurance company will reimburse you. Please contact our Intake Department at (310) 713-6739 with any further questions.
How much does treatment cost?
The cost of your treatment will vary according to the program you enroll in and your length of stay. Please contact our admissions department at (310) 713-6739 to help with questions regarding cost of treatment and the admissions process.
What forms of payment are accepted?
We accept cashier’s checks, wire transfers, and credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.
How long is your program?
Our program is a minimum of 30 days. As you progress in treatment, our clinical staff will be in conversation with you about recommendations for continued length of stay based on your needs, progress and outside support.
Who will be providing treatment and how does your program differ from other treatment programs?
All of our therapists are Masters or Doctorate level licensed clinicians with specialized training in a variety of evidence based trauma treatment modalities. Our program hours are split evenly between Individual Therapy and Group Therapy. We provide an unprecedented 17-18 hours of Individual therapy per week (see our schedule).
Our program is independently owned and run by Dr. Karol Darsa. Dr. Darsa splits her time between her Outpatient and Residential Programs and is actively involved in the treatment of every client. Dr. Darsa’s specialty is treating trauma and she has been doing so since 1998.
Can my family, spouse or other support people be included in my treatment?
We encourage the participation of your support people in treatment, per clinical recommendation. We have a weekly Multi-Family Group, which is attended by both clients and support people. We also provide Individual Multi-Family Therapy, as indicated.
Can I visit your facility before committing to treatment?
We welcome all prospective clients and their families/support people to visit our facility prior to admission. Entering treatment can be very stressful and the decision to do so is an important one; we strive to make the experience as safe and welcoming as possible.
If you have any further questions, please contact our Intake Office at (310) 713-6739.
