Haven Hills Recovery
“Haven Hills Recovery literally saved my life. I was admitted to Haven Hills very reluctantly. I had a previous experience in another eating disorder facility that was nothing short of a nightmare and I vowed I would never return to treatment again. When I reached a dangerously low weight I relented to enter Haven Hills due to my family’s insistence. What I found was an extremely well qualified, supportive staff that met me with compassion, dignity and love. I not only began my journey to a healthy weight and relationship with food, but also received the tools and support to continue once I left their care. I would highly recommend Haven Hills Recovery to anyone struggling with an eating disorder and/or other related disorder. The small, personalized, safe environment was certainly a fit for me. It was definitely a life changing experience for which I am thankful for every day.”DM – HHR alumna
Our goal at Haven Hills Recovery is to enhance the lives of every individual who walks through our doors including clients, families and staff. At Haven Hills, we put people first which means you will receive exceptional care from passionate, highly-trained professionals that have created a program of healing and freedom designed specifically for you and your family.
Eating disorders can have a devastating impact on the individual and their loved ones. If you are experiencing feelings of isolation, hopelessness, anxiety, a lack of control, or shame – we understand – you are not alone. Eating disorders are often a symptom of underlying issues and typically serve as a coping mechanism for those who suffer. We know you have suffered long enough at the hands of trauma, anxiety, and measuring your life and self-worth by a number. We will work together to help you find freedom from the stories that bind you, by celebrating the body that houses your soul and expressing yourself authentically in everything you do.
What Makes Our Program Different?
Our treatment program has three fundamental building blocks – our team, our therapeutic approach, and a warm healing environment.
At Haven Hills, we put people first. In order to deliver exceptional care, you need exceptional people. Our treatment team is just that – exceptional. They are the very best at what they do, and they come from a place of unparalleled passion and integrity.
During your time at Haven Hills, you will receive care from our multi-disciplinary team comprised of experienced therapists, counselors, dietitians, medical staff, nurses, and psychiatrists. This team of highly experienced professionals works seamlessly together to address every single aspect of your care. Our low client/staff ratio allows us to provide the personal attention and care you deserve.
Our Therapeutic Approach
At Haven Hills Recovery, we don’t just treat symptoms; we identify and treat the underlying causes. Evidence-based treatment is the foundation of our program; we go above and beyond that to create a healing culture that also integrates holistic care to form a boundless road to recovery. Each woman who walks through our doors is unique in personality, experience and expression, and we design a customized treatment plan specifically tailored to her needs. Our goal is to provide safety and encouragement while utilizing proven therapies such as CBT, DBT skills, psychodrama, EMDR, art therapy, grief work, 12 step facilitation, yoga, and community service (just to name a few).
We also work closely with families. Eating disorders often leave families feeling confused, powerless and unsure of how best to support their loved one. Our treatment teams work extensively with families to provide education, healing and unity for the entire family system. This is a very important part of what we do at Haven Hills.
A Warm Healing Environment
At Haven Hills, we want you to feel like you are in the safety, security, comfort and warmth of your own home. Our treatment location provides a safe, warm, home-like environment overlooking the serenity of the San Diego mountains. We know it is very important for you to feel like a person, and not a patient or a number during this transformation. To fully engage in fighting your eating disorder your environment should offer a sense of peace, comfort and hope. Our goal is for you to feel nourished in body, mind, spirit and soul as you navigate this journey.
