Prototypes’ residential treatment programs are designed to help women recover from drug and/or alcohol addiction through a comprehensive program of services and support. We provide a caring and nurturing environment that prepares clients to live healthy, self-sustaining lives.
We offer a range of programs and services to meet every woman’s unique needs regardless of her current life situation. Some women are at the beginning of their journey to recovery and in need of a detoxification program. Others are in need of long- or short-term residential programs. Still others are able to continue working or going to school while they get the help they need.
Individualized Programs and Services
The first step toward recovery is developing a program that specifically addresses a woman’s individual circumstances. We work with our clients to determine which of our services – individual and group counseling, psychiatric referrals, vocational and educational rehabilitation, parenting classes, recreational activities and other support services – will best serve her particular needs.
We know that women are often the sole providers and caretakers for their children. Our programs are designed to accommodate women who choose to come to Prototypes individually as well as those who choose to include their children in the recovery process.
Prototypes is dedicated to providing quality treatment services that are affordable and accessible to everyone.
Prototypes has locations across Southern California, serving clients in Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura Counties.
Pomona Women’s Center
Our Pomona campus offers comprehensive, holistic residential services. A cornerstone of the Pomona program is that children are allowed to accompany their mothers to treatment so they, too, can benefit from mental health counseling and prevention programs. We provide quality client care that includes treatment for both substance abuse and mental health disorders. We also provide medical referrals and interventions, and offer an array of life-skills education classes focused on parenting, employment, and secondary and advanced education. We also offer group counseling for extended family members, when appropriate, as well as childcare services.
