This is the way to walk through life’s stresses and challenges. Of course, we all recognize that the life of the mentally ill can often be chaotic, exhausting and stressful. However, it is our philosophy that a life can be revitalized by calmly and peacefully putting the pieces back together. Finally, clarity and focus replace anger and unease.

Barn Life Recovery’s community-based holistic rehab center in Southern California was created to help put the pieces back together one breath at a time. To that end, our staff has seamlessly blended Ancient Far East healing traditions with cutting edge, modern and alternative mental health treatment. Drawing upon Oriental healing methods that have transformed and enriched people’s lives since before the words stress, depression, or addiction existed, the Barn Life Recovery addresses the entire continuum of recovery care.


has one aim in mind. We manifest and nurture an environment in which our residents can have a unique personal awakening. For example, we believe that through our suffering we are encouraged to turn inward and focus on what truly matters in our lives. Consequentially, through these ashes of anguish, we are reborn as spiritual beings. Indeed, we walk a path NOT toward joy and freedom but a path OF joy and freedom. Finally, free from the bondage of self.

Our holistic treatment services include spiritual practices such as Tai Chi, Qi Gong, meditation, Martial Arts, Yoga, and Chinese Herbal Therapy. Additionally, we offer Art Therapy, Reiki, and Eastern Philosophical studies that help propel the newly recovering into a life of serenity, peace and enlightenment.


Enlightenment is a word often associated with Zen. However, it is widely misunderstood in American culture. Essentially, enlightenment means liberation from one’s self. In fact, it means that we have realized that something has gone wrong. As a result, we vow to bring this wrong back into balance and harmony. This is a state of enlightenment, the active participation in rebuilding of one’s self.

We believe that you have always had the ability to create a future vastly different from that which past events would predict.

Hear From Those We've Impacted

Barn Life is uniquely special. As someone who has had long stretches of sobriety with "traditional" communities and methods, Barn Life stepped in when I started struggling during the pandemic and said "traditional" methods failed to help.The staff here are exceptional. This is a truly subjective statement, but it is my honest opinion that the people from the owner (Hi Matt!) to EVERYONE else works there because they believe in the work and want to share the tools they found.Barn Life and their little sibling, Peer Mental Wellness were the launchpad from a shell of an existence to person with self-love/respect, and a life-mission of personal development.

Best for someone looking for spiritual healing in addition to their mental health healing.

Barn life is probably one of the most amazing facilities you could ever attend when it comes to mental illness. This was the first place that popped up when I was searching for help and I’m so thankful that it did. The environment is very therapeutic, the staff is awesome, and the group discussions and activities were so helpful in me understanding what I was experiencing. Do not hesitate to be a part of this place. It’s literally a game changer. I was only there for 6 weeks but I wished I stayed at least 6 months. Ever since returning home, I’ve been much happier and my perspective has changed dramatically. I’ve done things and participated in events at my college that I never thought I would be able to do. This place is truly amazing and I’m forever grateful that I found this place.

My daughter has been at Barn Life Recovery now for two months. It was my last resort to send her 9 hours away from me. She has been in drug and mental health rehabs in and out for two years. This was my last stitch effort to save my daughter and get her back to herself. Alyssa and I spoke multiple times before deciding. Their willingness to do everything for her and the different teams they have work with them is amazing. My daughter is happy again and clean and sober. She loves it there in their outpatient program. They restore your faith in humanity. They help restore someone who is broken in so many places to themselves. They have put the light back in my daughters eyes. They are committed to helping each person who truly wants the help. They assist in helping them get jobs and be responsible members of society. I recommend their program to anyone wanting to recover from drug, alcohol and mental health.Thank you to all the people at Barn Life who have made my daughter smile and bring the light back to her eyes. I am truly grateful.DawnaLee
