Comprehensive Assessment & Recovery Experience (CARE) Unit
Breathe Life Healing Center’s CARE Unit is California’s leading destination for adults seeking collaborative + comprehensive consultation, assessment, and treatment. An 18-day program that offers 24/7 awake staff provides care, safety, stability and clinical guidance. In addition to a thorough evaluation and clinical assessment, CARE Unit delivers appropriate individualized one-on-one and group interaction with a dedicated treatment team. We offer education, hands-on nutrition, medication/s management, and other emotional support practices.
With the nation’s premier trauma-informed and client-centered clinical services, Breathe’s CARE Unit offers a treatment-team approach to refine and define an accurate emotional health baseline. Then we craft, in collaboration with each client, a clear path to improving quality of life.
Our goal is to quickly reduce our client’s suffering in the process of clarifying previous diagnosis and treatment approaches. We offer useful, effective clinical planning that is carefully designed to provide sophisticated diagnostic feedback with a priority on evidence-based solutions in a responsive, private and discrete environment.
CARE Unit is ideal for individuals who are seeking an individualized multidisciplinary approach to treatment for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning, who also may have a demonstrated history of:
- Persistent treatment-resistant emotional health issues
- Lacking an accurate diagnosis of cause and condition of suffering
- A history of instability resulting from crisis, brain-based impairment, self-harming behavior, dual diagnosis and substance use soothing, alongside mood or thought disorders
People arrive to Breathe’s CARE Unit seeking accurate assessment and personalized care. CARE Unit is a self-pay adult program. Breathe Life Healing Center helps hundreds annually reduce their own suffering and improve their quality of life through increased understanding of need and self-care. CARE Unit is comprised of expert emotional and medical assessors, allowing for clear and collaborative diagnosis and treatment of complex symptom sets.
