Santa Barbara Cottage Residential Center

Santa Barbara, CA

The Cottage Residential Center is a clinically-managed residential rehabilitation program offering treatment for those recovering from alcohol and chemical dependency.

Located in a bustling beachside neighborhood, the Cottage Residential Center is designed to give patients a feeling as if they are in a garden oasis nestled in an established urban environment; providing a strong collaborative program.

Staffed around-the-clock by a team of highly experienced chemical dependency professionals – including physicians who specialize in addiction medicine, licensed psychotherapists, and registered nurses – the 24-bed facility features both private and semi-private rooms.

19six Architects worked closely with Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital administrators and clinical staff to create a safe, supportive, and healing environment. The Cottage Residential Center includes a common dining room, exercise room, common living/meeting room, and a lovely outdoor garden for eating and lounging.

The facility’s program offers patients a full complement of activities that incorporate education, relapse prevention, stress management, coping skill development, and continuing recovery care planning. The architectural configuration of the facility, in combination with a highly structured treatment program, is a crucial aspect to maintaining the Cottage Residential Center’s high patient success rate.
