The CLARE Foundation opened a new facility for its Women’s Treatment Program Thursday at 844 Pico Boulevard in Santa Monica.
With 40 beds, this newly renovated building will provide gender-responsive detoxification services, primary care, and long-term residential services, all under one roof, to better meet the needs of women in our community.
The Women’s Treatment Program at CLARE has been in existence since 2003, and offers women short- and long-term residential treatment designed to address underlying issues specific to women in recovery.
CLARE raised $2.5 million to fund renovations to this former sober living residence, with support from The Annenberg Foundation, The California Department of Housing and Community Development Emergency, Housing and Assistance Program Capital Development (EHAPCD), The Community Development Commission of the County of Los Angeles, Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky (Third District), and the City of Santa Monica.
“Through this newly renovated facility, CLARE will be able to provide effective, cost-efficient treatment and recovery services to nearly 275 women each year,” said CLARE Executive Director Nicholas Vrataric. “We are grateful that the support of our founders and our community has allowed us to offer this resource to so many women in need.”
