Founded in 1979, Hanbleceya provides compassionate and comprehensive treatment within a therapeutic community where individuals are given the opportunity to experience genuine connection and bonding with others. Our unique program functions under the belief that individual healing is optimized in a supportive, community atmosphere that fosters personal empowerment and a balanced life. The Hanbleceya community offers a safe and loving environment in which members learn to respond to themselves, to others, and situations in the world in an authentic and effective way.
Hanbleceya is an independence-oriented program where each individual is supported in developing and practicing skills that help them live more independent and fulfilling lives. Members of the community are empowered to make choices, search for options, and to solve problems effectively. The self-esteem of each member is strengthened through the process of discovery and learning. Each community member gains an awareness of self, learns skills to create a balanced life, and discovers his or her own passion for living. This powerful treatment option is unique in its philosophies and approach.
Our uniquely structured program supports individuals in need of intensive support for coping with mental illness like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and other significant life conditions. The multiple levels of treatment offered epitomize Hanbleceya’s comprehensive approach to recovery. The singular goal at Hanbleceya is to help our clients learn the skills necessary to live a happy, healthy, and independent life. This step down approach provides assurance that your mentally Ill loved-one will be appropriately supported given his/her psychiatric condition and level of need with close attention being paid to the ultimate goal of teaching him/her the skills necessary to live a life of independence.
While both our Seattle and San Diego locations offer the same standard program, each facility offers a different and unique sub-program designed to further support our clients in the recovery process. Seattle's Physical Wellness Subprogram incorporates a weekly physical fitness regimen tailored to each client’s specific needs as well as regular therapeutically-oriented, nature-based activities to complement treatment in a variety of ways. San Diego's Nutrition Subprogram strongly emphasizes self-care by incorporating healthy nutrition and exercise regimens into existing treatment plans with the aim of improving the management of psychiatric symptoms. For more information about each of these programs, refer to the location dropdown menu on the top of the home page.
VisionQuest Treatment House is a non-locked, residential facility that provides the highest level of care offered. This facility is only available in the San Diego location. Clients live in our licensed, adult residential facilities where they receive around the clock care, programming and supervision. The “VQ” program has been designed for clients who need a higher level of supervision and support while stabilizing and preparing for a less structured setting. Trained Hanbleceya staff conduct up to 35 therapeutic groups each week that focus on stabilization, skill building and symptom education and management. Clients also receive daily support in routine living activities such as meals, chores and medication compliance. Social connection and interaction with VQ housemates and Hanbleceya residents are also built into the daily program and overseen by program staff. Weekly individual therapy is provided by one of Hanbleceya’s experienced clinicians.
Admission to VisionQuest is intended to be temporary and reserved for individuals who have been referred by the clinical team subsequent to program assessment. Our short term goal is to prepare your loved-one for transition into Hanbleceya’s Semi-Independent Living program.
VisionQuest's facility number is 374603028.
This standard level of care is the recommended entry point to Hanbleceya for the majority of our new admissions. The main cornerstones of our standard, semi-independent treatment program include:
Hanbleceya’s Transitional Outpatient program is reserved for Hanbleceya clients who have completed the semi-independent living program and are ready to transition to independent, non-staff supported living. Many clients, after completing Hanbleceya’s Semi-Independent Program, choose to stay in the San Diego area to maintain the friendships they’ve generated, stay in school or keep a job they’ve secured, remain connected to a 12-Step Community if that was part of their program, and continue their therapy with Hanbleceya at a maintenance level.
We see this as a natural step in the process of building a healthy life outside of hospitals and in-patient treatment programs, a step some may refer to as the “maintenance stage” of recovery. Clients at this point have generally demonstrated a sustained ability to manage their symptoms and medication responsibly, require minimal supervision or intervention to maintain their therapeutic gains, have developed proficiency in household maintenance and upkeep, uphold healthy social connections, work or go to school consistently, manage their money responsibly, and have taken initiative in not only their own recovery, but helping other's recover as well.
