Destinations for Teens’ three Los Angeles houses are each six-bed residential homes located in Woodland Hills, CA. Our residential program serves adolescents 12-17 years old. We understand that placing your child in California residential treatment for teens is a huge decision, and our team is ready to serve your family’s needs in the most professional and effective way possible.
Our Woodland Hills houses are residential rehabilitation and treatment centers we operate for teens affected by drug abuse and/or mental health disorders. Our programs include teen mental health treatment, substance use disorder 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 our Woodland Hills Homes include a backyard pool, sitting area, and gym. This area is perfect for reflection and exercise.
Teens go to school in a room designated for academic services, each assigned their own space that includes a Mac computer to complete their assignments.

Destinations For Teens staff are actively getting vaccinated through the county and the hope is to have the majority of our staff vaccinated by the end of January, 2021. Destinations For Teens is likewise committed to educating staff to the benefits of vaccinating and to providing access to the vaccine to all employees. By minimizing the risk of transmission, Destinations For Teens is working hard to protect its clients, families and employees from contracting the COVID-19 virus.
A dedicated COVID-19 task force, including our Medical Director, Clinical Director and our Director of Nursing, provides written materials and verbal education and training to all staff. In the words of Dr. Baback Gabbay, Destinations For Teens Chief Medical Director, the message could not be simpler: "We are committed to the health and well-being of our patients and families. Our staff is committed to the CDC recommend cleaning protocols and have been fortunate to receive the Moderna or Pzifer Covid vaccine this week. Vaccination is important in order to help keep all our employees and the families we serve safe".
In addition to distributing vaccinations, Destinations For Teens facilities has implemented the following procedures for all in-person programs:
• Established a revised screening process for admissions, including questions about recent fevers, travel and mandated negative COVID-19 test results. Anyone who poses a risk to our centers will not be admitted.
• Implement active screening of residents and staff for fever and respiratory symptoms.
• Remind residents to practice social distancing and perform frequent hand hygiene.
• Screen all staff at the beginning of their shift for fever and respiratory symptoms.
• Actively take the staff’s temperature and document absence of shortness of breath, new or change in cough, and sore throat. If they are ill, have them put on a facemask and self-isolate at home.
• Destinations For Teens has revised how they interact with vendors and receiving supplies and equipment, and other non-health care providers (e.g., food delivery, etc.), and take necessary actions to prevent any potential transmission. For example, supply vendors transport supplies to dedicated locations versus inside of facilities.
• In lieu of in-person visits, facilities are offering alternative means of communication for people who would otherwise visit, such as virtual communications (phone, video-communication, etc.)
• Creating/increasing communication to update families, such as advising to not visit.
• Assigning staff as primary contact to families for inbound calls and conduct regular outbound calls to keep families up to date.
