Welcome to Cheney House

Destinations’ Cheney House, is a beautiful 6-bed residential home nestled under the oak trees in Topanga Canyon. Cheney serves adolescents (12-17 years old). We understand that placing your child in teen residential treatment is a huge decision and our team is ready to serve your family needs in the most professional and effective way possible.

Our Cheney house is one of our three residential rehabilitation and treatment centers we operate for teens affected by substance use and/or mental health disorders, nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains near Malibu. Our programs include teen mental health treatment, substance use treatment, and therapeutic services.

Teens typically are paired together in a single room during their stay, giving them the benefit of one-on-one interactions with their temporary “roommate” in addition to their daily interactions with staff and other teens. The interior of the house includes a family room, kitchen and dining area, the latter of which is sometimes used for group discussions. Outdoor amenities within Cheney House include a backyard pool and Jacuzzi. This area is perfect for reflection or exercise, and features a waterfall and sitting space.

Teens go to school in a separate building, with each assigned their own space that includes a Mac computer to complete their assignments. A gym attached to the school is also available for exercise and recreation.
