Recovery is integrated into all of our levels of care across each of our facilities. We strive to create an environment that fosters our recovery values, while providing enough guidance and support to allow clients to make choices and actively participate in determining what recovery means to each of them.

We strongly believe that recovery is a supportive process where a person is encouraged to maximize their life and achieve a sense of balance and fulfillment. It is a deeply personal and self-directed process built on hope, empowerment, meaningful roles and spirituality.

Crestwood Behavioral Health Inc. is proud to be California’s leading provider of mental health services, assisting thousands of clients from across the state. Our focus is on creating strong relationships with counties in which we both have a financial commitment, providing the services which are tailored to meet our clients’ specific needs, and reinforcing a common set of values that guide our practices and policies.
