About Us

OUR MISSION

Recovering from addiction requires expert, collaborative care that focuses on restoring physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. Why? Because addiction isn’t just an individual problem. A variety of social, economic, familial, and systemic factors contribute to a person’s specific challenges with substance use, mental health issues or impulse control disorders. That’s why our programs feature comprehensive, customized therapies that support and treat the whole person, not just the addiction. A healthy outlook and sobriety aren’t our only goals for you. We’re dedicated to helping you reconnect to yourself and creating the fulfilling life you deserve.

Evidence-Based Outpatient Treatment in the Greater Los Angeles Area

When there’s motivation to seek treatment, a rigorous outpatient program is an ideal structure for providing addiction recovery programs. That’s what makes us one of the leading treatment facilities in the West Los Angeles. Just as the road to addiction has many twists and turns, there’s no straight path to recovery. Each person’s experience is unique, painful, and treatable. Our clinical experts use a variety of models and therapies to develop individualized treatment programs that meet each person exactly where they are on their journey to recovery. Our evidence-based programs for men and women are flexible, age-inclusive, and designed to treat substance abuse, alcoholism, depression, trauma, process addictions, and other mental and behavioral health challenges. From the moment a person walks in the door, to the end of a treatment plan, to a responsive aftercare and alumni program, our team is here.

Our Expert Team

Experienced, educated, and compassionate therapists and staff provide a welcoming and comfortable environment for clients and their families. For us, recovery is most successful when it’s a caring and collaborative effort.
