Expedited Admission

When you call, our caring and attentive admission specialists will take all the time needed to answer every question you have.  They will quickly and clearly explain what is required in terms of VA Authorization, which is required in order to participate in our Veterans program.  Once the authorization is obtained, we can admit you or your loved one to our program immediately. We are standing by to do all that we can to provide the help and treatment that is deserved and needed.

Streamlined and Simple Admission Process

  • Initial Phone Discussion – we will answer all of your questions, explain the VA Authorization process, and provide all additional details of our program
  • Clinical Assessment with a Licensed Therapist – this typically takes place over the phone and allows our Clinical team an opportunity to get to know you better and how we may best meet your needs.
  • Schedule Arrival Date – we will accommodate you as soon as you are ready, once authorization is obtained.
  • Travel Arrangements – we provide transport to our facility, if needed.

Arrival and First Day

Every member of our staff understands the feelings of apprehension, excitement, fear, and hopefully relief that so many veterans have upon arrival. We will do everything we can to help you settle into our program as comfortably as possible.

  • Our intake specialist will take you to your studio, where you can leave your bags and freshen up.
  • We will then give you a full tour of our campus and introduce you to your treatment team.
  • Once back at your studio, our trained intake staff will conduct a brief inspection of your belongings to confirm that you only have items that are appropriate for your treatment. * This is standard practice for every admitting veteran, and it is vital to ensure that our program remains as safe and optimally functional as possible.  It is important to our team that all participants feel comfortable, protected in order to heal in an environment free of triggers or other destructive influences.
  • You can then relax and settle into your new surroundings, meet other veterans, explore our campus, and enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of our center.
  • The following day, or even on the first day, depending on time of arrival, you will meet with your assessment team to begin the evaluation process that provides the diagnostic understanding needed to create a comprehensive treatment plan that fully addresses your needs and goals.

We pledge to make your stay at Solara Mental Health as comfortable and effective as possible.  Our trained staff is present 24 hours a day to provide help and support, so that our veterans receive the most optimal treatment experience possible.  We want you to become the very best version of yourself.

What Our Clients Say


The program has given me the tools I needed to really gain stability. For the first time in years - maybe for as long as I can remember, actually, I’m learning how to cope and manage my stressors and triggers. I now believe that I can find some relief and happiness.

M.P. – Father

Your program provided our daughter with the most masterful therapist we have ever encountered (and we have used many).  She has had an unbelievable ability to see the long-term trajectory of our daughter’s treatment and to approach her treatment in stages that fit where my daughter’s development was.  We can’t say enough positive about her.


Even though I’m not religious, I realized when I got sober that for the first time in my life I wanted to explore my spiritual side. I benefited hugely from the individual spiritual sessions that I had with Chris. I’m really grateful for that aspect of the whole treatment experience.


I have never felt better than I do now, since completing your program. The truly caring and supportive staff and the intensive program changed my life. What a neat place to stay for treatment - I love Pacific Beach! I have learned skills and behavior to move forward with my life thanks to you.


The therapists and counselors and really whole team were extremely beneficial to me and my understanding of my issues. The treatment plan they developed was exactly what I needed


Solara was truly a life-changing experience for me and for our children, because of what you did for my wife! The treatment team was phenomenally supportive and perfect for helping her with her anxiety and depression. We are all now moving forward to put our lives back together and it started with you all in Pacific Beach. Thank you for what you do.


We are so grateful to you for the treatment and care you provided our daughter. She is doing unbelievably well now thanks to your program. We will gladly tell anyone we encounter that needs treatment about the wonderful work you do at Solara.

Watson Family

Solara’s program was such a positive experience for our mom (and for us)! She had become almost impossible to deal with. Your entire staff was phenomenally supportive and kind and patient with her. We feel like we’ve got our mom back, now.

R.M. – Father

If not for Solara Mental Health, I am almost positive that our daughter would not be as advanced in her treatment, and would not have the almost miraculous confident and positive outlook that she has.


The Solara program is truly amazing. I’ve never had more clarity or more good energy in my entire life. The attention the physicians and the therapists gave me was outstanding. I feel like they truly understood and addressed my issues, which had consumed my life for years. Thank you all.


The Solara Treatment Program was a life-changing experience for me. To be able to heal in such a beautiful, peaceful environment, with such a terrific treatment team, was so amazingly positive. I have found my true self, again. I thank you and my family thanks you for helping me become the person I was meant to be.

Michelle Family

I want to thank you and the entire staff and support system at Solara for taking such good care of my sister. On behalf of my entire family, we want you all to understand that your patience and kindness stretches further than you can see… Thank you, again and again, from the bottom of my heart.
