Yuki Trails Transitional Living Center
The Yuki Trails Transitional Living Center is a program of the Round Valley Indian Health Center, Inc. and is located in Covelo, California. It is a state licensed program through the California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division.
The Yuki Trails Transitional Living Center believes the value of every human life is immeasurable and the opportunity to pursue a healthy and productive life should be afforded to all. The program is committed to the concept that alcoholism and substance abuse addictions are treatable and full recovery is possible. While the individual must possess the desire to stop the abusive behavior, the Yuki Trails Transitional Living Center provides the education, therapy, and support necessary to restore the individual to physical, mental, and spiritual wellness.
The Yuki Trails Transitional Living Center is a 10-bed residential substance abuse treatment program (currently licensed for 6 beds) designed to treat AI/AN male youth, ages 12-17 years. The Yuki Trails Transitional Living Center accepts youth who require short-term to long-term care with substance abuse and primary or secondary mental health diagnoses. The program accepts youth who are dependents of the state (WIC 300) wards/ delinquents of the juvenile court of social services (WIC 602), and private placements.
The Yuki Trails Transitional Living Center is located within the boundaries of the Round Valley Indian Reservation, and is centrally located between the Round Valley Indian Health Center, Inc., public schools, and the town of Covelo. The 10-acre site has large oak trees, a greenhouse, a community garden, a barn, and horse pastures. The facility incorporates many windows and skylights to capture natural light and the beautiful view of the valley and the surrounding mountains. The living room has a fireplace and the building has many other features to give each youth a home environment. The building was designed to allow direct supervision of residents at all times. Because of the program's emphasis on transitional living/life skill development, youth attend a majority of the counseling, health care, education, vacation, cultural and spiritual activities, and support groups in the local community.
