Tribe Integrative Recovery

1317 Del Norte Road, Suite 200, Camarillo, California, 93010
At TRIBE we believe a paradigm shift must happen in the field of addiction, so we work collaboratively with other programs, professionals, and the surrounding community to shatter the stigma and erase the shame of addiction and co-occurring mental illness. We accomplish this through community outreach, education, and visibility. At TRIBE we believe in second chances and we practice patience. We understand that addiction is a chronic re-occurring condition which can be prevented and treated but not cured. Therefore, we do not expect perfection. What we do expect is rigorous honesty. At TRIBE we believe in abstinence and we monitor abstinence through random urinalysis, breathalyzers, toxicology screenings, and frequent house drug searches. But we also believe in harm reduction and we will meet every person at their individual level of acceptance, commitment and stage of change. At TRIBE we believe that recovery is a VERB and continued sobriety requires commitment followed by ACTION! Residents must work towards their individual vocational, educational and therapeutic goals. At TRIBE we believe that “one size does not fit all” and many choices for recovery exist. Although we strongly suggest involvement in a 12 step program, we also offer an introduction and exposure to alternative recovery paths: SMART Recovery; Celebrate Recovery; Dharma Punx-Refuge Recovery; LifeRing; Rational Recovery, etc. At TRIBE everyone works a “program” and we help find the support group and recovery program that is the best fit for each individual. At TRIBE we believe no one can do this alone and everyone needs a strong circle of support. So we encourage friends and families to become involved by visiting, volunteering, and attending our special events. At TRIBE we believe all work and no play is boring, and boredom is a precursor to a relapse. So we plan tons of sober activities and fun adventures. We work hard and we play hard…together! At TRIBE we believe in listening to our “customers” so we established a Resident Governing Council, Community Relations Committee, and Family Advisory Board. Suggestions are heard and the program is improved because we value your feedback.

Facility Highlights

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Substance Use and Co-Occurring Mental Health Disorders
  • Age-Specific programming: Mature Adults (40+) and Young Adults programming


  • Family Program

    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

    EMDR is a highly specific, research-validated form of therapy that can help people overcome traumatic stress, anxiety and depression. With EMDR, a trained practitioner uses bilateral stimulation, eye movement and touch to stimulate parts of the brain as a patient recounts certain experiences and memories as a way to more thoroughly process uncomfortable, painful feelings.

Rehabs 360 Guide


Just 30 minutes from Malibu in beautiful Camarillo, Calif.., Tribe Integrative Recovery offers outpatient treatment and sober living services to adults struggling with substance use disorder and co-occurring disorders.


Outpatient options include a day program, which is a treatment level offered by 18.5 percent of facilities in California. It meets five to seven days a week for seven hours a day. There's also an intensive outpatient program (IOP), which meets five to six days a week for three- or four-hour sessions. This level of treatment is available in 39.4 percent of California treatment facilities.

Both programs involve a mixture of individual counseling, recovery coaching, group therapy, neurofeedback, neurofitness, and family therapy. Attendance at 12-step meetings is encouraged, however, clients are also encouraged to explore alternate recovery paths such as SMART Recovery or Celebrate Recovery.

The center utilizes a wide array of evidence-based treatment modalities, including eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), the latter of which is utilized by 50.3 percent of treatment facilities in the state.

There are also specialized tracks for clients over 40, as well as young adults. In 2017, just 33.3 percent of treatment facilities in California offered programming tailored to young adults.


The rehab has a staff-to-client ratio of 1:4. The treatment team includes licensed marriage and family therapists and certified addictions counselors.


Sober living options are gender specific and include a seven-bed facility for men and a seven-bed facility for women. Both offer home-like living environments and ample outdoor space.


The majority of former clients polled by Rehabs.com to date (three out of four) gave Tribe positive feedback and described the program as effective and the staff as compassionate. "Great program. Staff is genuine and nice," P.W. wrote in a representative review. "I love the fact that they touch on the education aspect of addiction and for me once I understood it, it became easier to stay clean."

Tribe also fared well on Google[1], where it earned an average rating of 4.6 out of five stars based on 13 reviews. Former clients who left feedback praised both the treatment programs and sober living services. "The sober living house is serene, beautiful, and peaceful," Staci wrote in a representative review. "The sober living staff went above and beyond to meet my needs. The therapy i received at Tribe was exceptional and perfect for me."


Two of the three loved ones surveyed by Rehabs.com to date also gave the facility positive feedback. "Excellent & effective treatment. Counseling, housing, activities are very good. My loved one made great progress," E.T. wrote in a representative review. The sole negative reviewer noted that the program was not helpful for their loved one and complained that the treatment was disorganized and unprofessional.
