Casa de las Amigas opened its doors back in 1967, marking the establishment of the first recovery home in Pasadena specifically catering to women struggling with alcohol and chemical dependency. Each year Casa’s “House of Friends” witnesses the transformation of hundreds of women, who, like butterflies, change and grow as they develop a renewed sense of hope through recovery and embark on their own personal journey toward a new life of serenity and peace. Every woman in search of a productive and sober life will have the opportunity to achieve it. Through an integrated healing program for body and mind that takes place in a homelike environment, Casa de las Amigas helps women with alcohol or drug addiction recover by providing them with the tools necessary to lead productive, responsible and sober lives. Casa de las Amigas offers women hope by guiding them through a unique process of recovery. Women whose lives have become unmanageable due to their alcoholism and/or chemical dependencies are given a choice and a chance to change. We believe that a productive, responsible, and sober life is founded upon the necessary establishment of basic self-esteem and love combined with knowledge and understanding of the disease of addiction with support from12-step programs.
