Our Program

6-25 hrs/week ∙ 30 – 120 days

Located in sunny Costa Mesa, California, Barn Life Recovery’s mental health services don’t feel like mental health services at all. Catering to unique life circumstances, we recommend 30, 60, or 90-days in our nationally accredited program. Sleep in your own bed at night while receiving day treatment for 6-25 hours a week. Barn Life offers the following programs tailored to fit your individual needs.

What is EMDR?

As the client and practitioner discuss traumatic experiences, the client simulates a type of eye movement found in REM sleep. Moving the eyes back and forth produces a way for the brain to reconsolidate traumatic experiences in a safe and comfortable environment, similar to REM sleep. In a trauma treatment program like ours, EMDR therapy in conjunction with mindfulness practices, cognitive behavioral therapy and narrative therapy, is one way to allow for healing from trauma and PTSD.

Who Needs EMDR Therapy?

People who have experienced traumatic events of any kind can benefit from EMDR therapy. Whether the trauma was incurred in childhood or in adulthood, traumatic experiences can include physical abuse, sexual abuse, domestic violence, near death experiences or experience with the unexpected death of a loved one. Trauma comes in many forms. Contact us to find out if our EMDR treatment program is right for you.

Experienced EMDR Therapists

Our trauma-focused therapists understand that the past informs our present which informs our future. When traumatic experiences are debilitating and distressing, our highly-trained and accredited EMDR-certified therapists provide a safe and comfortable space for healing. As part of a broader trauma treatment program, our EMDR therapy can provide a foundation for self-discovery and change.

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
