Psychiatric and Chemical Dependency Services


Cottage provides voluntary treatment of acute psychiatric crises, mental health counseling, and the most up-to-date, effective, and dignified treatment of alcoholism and drug addiction. Our pioneering psychiatry and alcohol and drug dependency programs have been dedicated to the most effective and dignified treatment of mental health, alcohol and drug dependency, and co-occurring disorders since 1975.


We offer a comprehensive range of services to best suit our patients' needs and circumstances, including acute inpatient psychiatry and detoxification; residential alcohol, drug, and co-occurring disorders; rehabilitation; and several levels of outpatient treatment services in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo.


Our approach to care is integrative, family-oriented, and culturally sensitive. Treatment plans support each person's specific needs and include treatment modalities for dual diagnosis to address those with both psychiatric and chemical dependency needs.
