MFI Recovery Center - La Vista Recovery and Wellness Center Philosophy
La Vista Recovery and Wellness Center is new addition to MFI’s family of specialized programs. La Vista is a private, residential treatment facility nestled on a hilltop with grand views of Mount San Jacinto, Tahquitz Peak, and the valleys of Hemet and San Jacinto. Like a bed and breakfast, this quiet setting provides a safe place for women of all ages to seek the skills with which to build a new life centered on sobriety.
Areas of Specialization
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.

ABOUT MFI RECOVERY CENTER - LA VISTA RECOVERY AND WELLNESS CENTER
Established in 1972, MFI Recovery Center is a nonprofit organization that provides a full continuum of treatment services for adults and women with children, as well as adolescents, which are treated by 21.3 percent of California treatment centers.
Treatment is available for individuals who are struggling with chemical dependency, psychiatric disorders, and co-occurring disorders.
One of nine facilities operated by the organization, MFI Recovery Center’s La Vista Recovery and Wellness Center provides a gender-specific, residential treatment program for women, making it part of the nearly 56 percent of California treatment centers to offer specialized services for adult women. Located in San Jacinto, Calif., the facility does not provide detoxification services on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to MFI Recovery Center's website, upon admission, clients participate in an initial assessment, which is used to create a personalized treatment plan. To treat its clients, La Vista Recovery and Wellness Center utilizes the Matrix Model as well as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and 12-step facilitation.
During treatment, clients participate in a structured schedule of individual, group, and family counseling sessions designed to help clients identify underlying factors that may contribute to addictive behavior.
As a gender-specific program, counseling sessions focus on issues common among women struggling with substance abuse. The trauma-focused treatment may address issues of physical or sexual abuse, PTSD, low self-esteem, depression, and an inability to cope with stress. The Matrix Model typically also incorporates educational workshops on relapse prevention techniques.
In addition to counseling sessions and educational classes, the facility also incorporates the principles and practices of the 12-step model of recovery into treatment. Clients may attend on-site and off-site 12-step meetings, study fellowship literature, and complete coursework to guide clients in their “step-work.” Individuals with co-occurring disorders may also receive psychiatric evaluations and ongoing medication management.
To help clients transition back into the community, clinicians may coordinate with clients to create comprehensive discharge plans. These plans may include referrals to sober housing, community-based resources, outpatient programs, and other linkages that provide aftercare support.
MFI Recovery Center’s website notes its residential programs are facilitated by a team of psychiatrists, clinical therapists, licensed substance abuse counselors, and support staff.
