Nuestra Casa Recovery Home

Nuestra Casa was founded in 1980 as an inpatient alcohol treatment facility for adult Spanish speaking males. The program quickly expanded from an original 6 bed facility to 10 beds, then in 1997 to the current 16 bed capacity. Today the program is licensed and certified by the State of California to provide both alcohol and drug abuse treatment.
