Located in the foothills of Pasadena, in Southern California, Pax House Recovery provides a uniquely serene and embracing atmosphere for those learning to overcome alcohol or drug addiction.
Our house is a comfortable home-like environment where we provide treatment programs varying in length from 30 to 60 to 90 days. Pax House Recovery 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. We have experienced, licensed and certified clinicians, counselors and medical staff who focus their attention on meaningful interactions with each client.The entire staff works together to provide the highest level of treatment, and also to serve as personal role models for living productive, healthy, sober lives.
Early recovery is difficult. But by instilling positive and lasting change reinforced through close individualized and personal attention, we help our clients minimize the risk of relapse. Pax House Recovery 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.
We customize proven treatment modalities to impart the deeper change necessary for lasting recovery. Our mission is to administer quality chemical dependency treatment while providing our clients with a solid grounding in the 12-step process for lasting personal change within community.
