Where do I start?! This place saved my life. Literally. I came in with a vicious alcoholic addiction and left with an extraordinary amount of knowledge and understanding of my disease, sobriety and how to maintain my sobriety. ALL of the counselors were friendly, caring and understanding. There was not a single thing I would change about my experience or Pax house. The entire staff , from the volunteers to management to the owners, were there for me at my low moments and cared about my well being. It felt more like a family setting rather then a typical hospital style rehab. I thank God for being put in this specific facility.I highly recommend for ANY type of substance abuse patient that needs true help. I can't thank Pax house enough!!
Pax House provides a uniquely serene and embracing atmosphere for those learning how to overcome drug addiction or substance abuse. Our facility, located in the foothills of Pasadena, offers a comfortable home-like environment for any seeking treatment in the Pasadena and Los Angeles area. Here, we are able to facilitate treatment programs varying in length (30, 60, or 90 days), tailored to the needs of each client and utilizing proven treatment modalities to impart the deeper change necessary for lasting recovery. We have experienced, licensed, and certified clinicians and staff members that focus their attention on meaningfully interacting with each client. The entire staff works together to not just provide the highest level of treatment, but also to serve as personal role models for living happy, fun, healthy, and sober lives. Early recovery is difficult. But by instilling positive and lasting
reinforced through close individualized and personal attention, we help our clients minimize the risk of relapse. We are a beacon of peace in the saturated landscape of residential treatment facilities in California. Pax House uses the evidence-based therapeutic technique known as Motivational Interviewing (MI). MI is a non-judgmental, non-confrontational, and non-adversarial approach that attempts to increase an individual’s awareness of the full potential impact of their actions and behaviors. The program helps them envision a better future for themselves and find the motivation to achieve it. People change their sense of what is possible for their lives when they begin to fully grasp what might be gained through change. Pax House works with each participant to access the critical hope and motivation needed to change a particular behavior or life circumstance not consistent with their renewed vision for their own lives.
