What Is the Relational Model of Care?

The Encino Recovery & Detox Center designed its addiction and recovery model of care after decades of research and thousands of hours working with men and women in various stages of recovery.

Core Concepts

Our Relational Model of Care was designed to re-introduce men and women to themselves, in a more loving way—free from the negative effects of addiction and addictive behaviors that have led to unwanted consequences and loss. 

The structure of our recovery program is unique and designed to meet the complex challenges that people traditionally face. 

Created with our client’s sobriety and wellness in mind—together we form therapeutic relationships that are secure, safe and honest. These will promote:

  • Ideas
