Comprehensive Assessment & Recovery Experience (CARE) Unit
Breathe Life Healing Center’s CARE Unit is California’s leading destination for adults seeking collaborative + comprehensive consult, assessment, and treatment. With the nation’s premier trauma-informed and client-centered clinical care, Breathe focuses services from 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.
We envision a reduction of suffering in the process of clarifying our client’s previous diagnosis. We offer useful, effective treatment planning since opening our intensive eighteen-day CARE Unit program. The CARE Unit has been carefully designed to provide sophisticated diagnostic treatment teaming with a priority on evidence-based solutions in a responsive and discrete environment.
The CARE Unit is ideal for individuals who are seeking a client-centered multidisciplinary approach to treatment teaming for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning, who also have a demonstrated history of:
- Persistent treatment-resistant emotional health issues
- Lacking an accurate diagnosis of cause and condition of suffering
- Holding pockets of instability from crisis, brain-based impairment, self-harming behavior, dual diagnosis and substance use soothing, alongside mood or thought disorders
People arrive to the CARE Unit from across the planet seeking accurate assessment and personalized care. The 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.
