In Residence Core Program
We understand mental illness – and the difficulties it creates for those who suffer from it. We value you and we are sensitive to your challenges. We will find every possible solution to enable you to live the life you are meant to live.



Meditation is a practice that has been used for thousands of years to help people find focus, clarity, wellness, and peace. Although meditation is an old practice, it is being used for new purposes: modern empirical research has shown that meditation, thoughtfully used, can be a highly effective practice in threating a variety of symptoms caused by many different mental health disorders. This is because meditation is inherently healing, both mental and physically: mindful meditation encourages the development of new neural pathways that replace old, destructive thought patterns with new, healthy ones; at the same time, the physical body relaxes itself, releasing tension and restoring a sense of balance and peace. At Solara Health, we incorporate meditation into our comprehensive treatment program to help clients develop mental, emotional, and physical balance and peace.

Health Benefits

Meditation has many health benefits, which include:

  • Decreased anxiety
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Higher serotonin production
  • Improved cognitive abilities
  • Stronger emotional stability and mind-body connection
  • Greater emotional control
  • Increased self-awareness, both physically and psychologically

Meditation at Solara Health

At Solara, our regularly scheduled meditation groups are purposely small, designed to give each client the attention and support that they need. Our experienced clinicians guide clients through both breathing and visualization exercises that ground clients in the present, promoting an increased awareness of physical sensations, thoughts, and feelings. Through this awareness, clients develop a greater understanding of the world around them, increase their ability to cope with stressors and painful emotions, and ultimately gain an overall sense of inner balance and peace. These are all skills that are vital to promote both immediate and long-term healing and wellness.

What Our Clients Say

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.


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.


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 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

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.


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.


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 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.


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.
