Frequently Asked Questions
Many experienced treatment professionals agree that gender specific residential treatment programs are more effective and create an environment that supports a higher likelihood of long term recovery. You can feel safe to open up about painful things that need to be healed when you are with other women who have also struggled with issues like addiction, trauma and depression. The opposite sex can be a big distraction and undermine your ability to stay focused on your recovery and do the deep work that recovery requires. Clearly, rehab is not a good place to meet your next boyfriend. Our recovery team here at Villa Kali Ma believes that having a supportive women only environment is vital to allowing you to dive deep into the underlying causes of your pain and suffering so that you can heal your life.
The program at Villa Kali Ma is designed to provide individualized treatment taking into account each clients specific needs. Normally you would meet with your primary therapist twice per week, once for individual therapy and once for therapy with family members or around family issues. In addition to this, you would also meet with one or more of our trauma therapists each week, depending on which therapy is right for you; EMDR, Somatic Experiencing or BioEnergetic Therapy. You would also meet with our Spiritual Psychologist once per week for an individual therapy session. All of these individual appointments are adjusted to meet your treatment goals that are a part of your Individualized Treatment Plan, so the type and number of appointments per week can change depending on your progress, however you will have at least 4-5 individual sessions per week.
At Villa Kali Ma we approach the treatment process by doing a thorough biological, psychological and social assessment of your life situation and find out what the presenting and underlying issues are. You and your primary therapist would then discuss short and long term treatment goals, as well as identify your strengths and possible barriers to reaching your recovery goals. You and your therapist would then come up with an Individualized Treatment Plan for your recovery. For some this could begin with an initial period of 30 days and for some this plan could be up to 90 days. You will meet regularly with your therapist to discuss your progress and re-adjust your goals as needed. Our Client Care Coordinator will meet with you weekly to help you with designing your aftercare recovery plan that will begin immediately upon completion of your treatment plan. You will also get to know our Alumni Program Coordinator while you are here, and she will be in touch with you on a regular basis for a minimum of a year following treatment. You will be invited to join our monthly yoga, meditation, and breathwork groups as well as a monthly process groups for all our alumni women. You will also receive invitations to special alumni events that happen regularly throughout the year.
We do accept some insurance policies. If you have a PPO policy that has Out of Network benefits for Substance Abuse, then we may be able to accept your insurance. The best way to find out is to call us and we can check your benefits. We will then get back to you with all of the information on what your insurance will cover. Unfortunately we cannot accept Medi-cal or Medicaid and we do not accept most Blue Shield of California individual plans. If you have a group plan or insurance through your workplace, it is likely we will be able to accept it if it is a PPO plan. Please call us at 760-814-8214 and we will assist you with any further insurance questions.
If you are having financial difficulty you can apply for a financial hardship scholarship. You can call or email us to request the application. This application will need to be filled out by the person who will be responsible for payment and will need to be sent back with documents proving financial hardship. A list of acceptable documents to provide proof will be provided. This scholarship will be granted on a case by case basis and each approved applicant will also need to meet criteria for the program, which will be determined by a phone assessment with one of our primary therapists. Qualified applicants will receive a scholarship of 50% off our regular cash pay rate. If you qualify and meet criteria, but we don’t currently have availability, we would then put you on a waiting list. The wait time is usually less than one month but could be longer. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship please call us at 760-814-8214.
Villa Kali Ma is a Mind, Body and Spirit Recovery program that not only addresses the mental obsession to self-medicate, but goes beyond the symptoms to expose the pain that is underlying the obsession. We view this pain as sacred medicine. We do not want to numb the pain but instead we want to do the healing work that will allow the lingering emotional pain to be seen, heard, recognized and processed, so that we don’t keep holding past experiences in our cellular bodies. We do this work through proven holistic practices and modalities that allow a transformation to take place. We address the mental, physical and spiritual aspects of the past traumas that need to be healed and facilitate the healing process on all levels. We learn to care for ourselves on a daily basis with practices that relieve us of our need to self-medicate with alcohol, pills, substances, food, drama, shopping and any other self-sabotaging ways we used to cope with daily life.
Yes! We encourage family involvement and you and your individual therapist will decide how that will progress. You can have your family members come in for face to face therapy sessions or you can do sessions by video conferencing or by conference call. We also have a Family Weekend Intensive once per month and we encourage all families to participate. This weekend begins on a Friday evening from 5:30-8:30 pm for introductions and ice breaking activities, then continues all day Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. This program is included and there is no charge to your family members, however they must provide their own transportation and travel expenses.
We believe in different strokes for different folks. Do we love the 12 steps? Yes, but…only when you are ready and willing to do them. If you have an aversion to the 12-step process, we get it. At Villa Kali Ma you will be introduced to several types of support groups available to assist you in your long term recovery goals and we want to help you find the ones that are right for you. Each week we will attend several different types of support group meetings so that you can begin to get an idea of what each one has to offer. Sometimes it’s just fear of the unknown that is the holdback. And maybe you already tried the 12-step route and it didn’t work for you. So we encourage you to stay open to trying new things and if at first you don’t succeed, maybe you try again? Ultimately it will be your decision what program you want to attend and you will be working with our Client Care Coordinator from day one to begin designing the perfect plan for YOUR RECOVERY.
Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to accept pets here. However we can refer you to highly trained foster parents nearby who can take care of your beloved four-legged family member until you complete treatment, and we can arrange for visitation. If you are interested in finding out more about this service please give us a call at 760-814-8214 and we will put you in touch with someone who can help. You can work out the payment for this service with the individual provider.

"I don't believe it to be an exaggeration to say that Villa Kali Ma saved my life. I couldn't have asked for a better environment to heal and redirect onto a path towards true living."Kristen B.
"This place completely changed my life. I needed a drastic change from the typical recovery environment in order to stay sober long term. Villa Kali Ma was more than able to provide a safe healing environment for me to cultivate a strong spiritual connection through yoga, meditation, and an organic lifestyle. I can honestly say that I love who I am today and I am forever grateful for Villa Kali Ma!"Cynthia B.
"I am so grateful I found Villa Kali Ma, it has truly changed my life. Kay is awesome and the entire team who works there is absolutely amazing. I was introduced to many different types of therapy, healing and recovery options. I was able to choose what works for me and continue them outside of treatment once I went home. VKM is truly a tranquil place to start healing. If you are looking for treatment I would highly recommend making this the start to your recovery."Suzie H.
