When a patient visits the ER for a health problem like diabetes or asthma, they are put on a course of treatment immediately. Should we do the same for people struggling with addiction? 
Like asthma or diabetes, opioid addiction is a chronic condition. Could treatment that begins when people show up in the ER get them on the right road faster?

I just came back from Casa Palmera, I went there for anxiety, trauma, and depression. All in all, It was a very good experience and I got a lot out of the program. The majority of the staff is wonderful. The higher ranked staff there like the CEO and what not are a bit money crazy and tend to put finance instead of the patients well being. That was the only issue I had with the place, they are all about getting their money. So if you can afford a place like this, you will love it. If you cannot afford it, I don't recommend you come here. However they work with most insurances, so you should first look into that. The food is extremely diet based, so its very bland, and boring. I hated that, its very strictly healthy and I think they left out a lot of necessary components, but It wasn't too horrible. Before you come in here you need to know that they will do anything in there power to make sure you stay the full 30 days. They can be pushy so you need to stand up for yourself and your needs. Other than that though, I enjoyed my stay. Most staff was amazing, the groups were very useful, and you get to make connections with the other patients there. With any treatment facility, YOU have to be willing to work hard. No program will work for you if you are not willing. So be open minded, participate in groups, and you'll get a lot out of this place. It really has helped me a lot and I still stand by my decision to seek treatment here. The location is beautiful and the facility itself is very very high class and stunning. Good luck to anyone considering treatment, Casa is a good place to go.

Casa is not only situated in one of the most beautiful areas of San Diego, but also happens to have some of the most prepared and passionate staff that Ive personally known. A wonderful outpatient program, an amazing food program that emphasizes natural foods and an ambience of a home which is hard to find in a treatment center.

My treatment for PTSD and pain at Casa Palmera resulted in having to go to the hospital after 3.5 weeks in their program. My digestive system was so backed up from the lack of enough fiber in the diet they provided that I had to have a nasal gastric tube inserted to drain my stomach. It was a very unpleasant experience and completely avoidable. I was in no condition to advocate for myself at the time and the staff who did care (there are some good people there) were unable to influence the person in charge of the dietary program. The director of the program blamed me for not choosing the right foods from what they were offering as the reason for my hospitalization. I ate every scrap of fiber I could find including oatmeal, fruits and vegetables. At home I had been eating a bran muffin each day, but they refused to provide bran muffins. Even with discharge instructions from the hospital to provide foods that I needed, they would not allow any bran muffins (I went back to the program for 2 days after discharge from the hospital to say goodbye to those I had bonded with during my 30 day stay). The State of CA, Dept of Health did an investigation when I complained about what happened to me and they substantiated my complaint. I do not recommend their program.

Response from the owner - 2 years ago
Casa Palmera makes every attempt to accommodate all special dietary needs. However dietary needs are determined after appropriate lab work and assessments are completed and the attending medical doctors and psychiatrists have collaborated with the treatment team relative to the most appropriate treatment plan. In order for a patient to improve, it is imperative that they work in collaboration with their treatment team. We would be most happy to speak with you regarding any concerns and will also attest that we have been required to make no changes in dietary recommendations. It is noted that although you state you were dissatisfied or harmed you remained in treatment on voluntary basis for 30 days and did not discharge as a result of any dissatisfaction.
