Individualized Mood Disorder Treatment in a Luxurious Setting

At Lucida’s mood disorders program, we treat women ages 21 and over* who are struggling with substance abuse and mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, or intimacy and relationship issues. Some of the mood disorders we treat include major depression, bipolar disorder and seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Underlying these conditions, many of our clients also struggle with binge eating and related issues.

A Safe, Nurturing Environment

Women in our mood disorders program share a luxury townhouse and receive treatment and support from an all-female team of master’s level therapists, case managers and patient care coordinators that is dedicated exclusively to our mood disorders program. To help restore a healthy lifestyle and ensure your comfort, we provide nutrition and meal planning, a personal chef, and housekeeping service. In this safe, secure and nurturing environment women find strength and hope for recovery.


Under a Complete Health & Wellness Program

Your diet and lifestyle have a profound effect on your recovery from substance abuse and mood disorders. Developing a nutritious diet and regular fitness regimen during treatment can help stabilize your moods while reducing the risk of cross addiction (e.g., switching from addictive substances to addictive foods) and relapse, giving you a strong foundation for lasting recovery from all addictive behaviors.

Treatment in our women’s mood disorder program can be complemented by an integrative mind-body and nutrition and healthy lifestyle program created by physician, nutrition expert and New York Times best-selling author Pamela Peeke, MD, MPH, FACP. The program includes:

  • Recovery coaching during your stay.
  • Cooking classes with our chef;
  • Nutritious, delicious, satisfying meals designed by a nationally renowned team of culinary nutritionists in partnership with the master and Dr. Peeke; and
  • Fitnessopportunities that include yoga and gym memberships.

This program also deals with some of the common challenges of early recovery, such as cravings and weight gain, and helps clients develop healthy, sustainable lifestyle habits that support lifelong recovery.
