Top-Rated Private Residential Rehab & Outpatient Treatment Center. We Treat Addiction & Co-occurring Disorders In Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles Area, California


For many years, addiction was a topic typically avoided in everyday conversation, often considered taboo due to the life-altering effects associated with the disease’s onset. Today, with the many advances that have been made in the recovery and mental health fields, we can now discuss addiction more openly, with less risk of judgment. As a society, we are continuing to grow in our understanding of addiction: that it is not a lifestyle chosen by those who are living with it; that, instead, it is a treatable disease; and that treatment is more accessible now than ever before. We all think that we never could be the one to slip into substance use disorder. But addiction can catch up with anyone at any time. Addiction is never part of someone’s plan. No one ever seriously wishes to become an addict. But addiction can and does happen, and once you develop a disorder, it can be hard to get rid of. “IT’LL NEVER HAPPEN TO ME”. How many of us have been affected by the struggles of addiction, mental health issues, and substance use disorders? Perhaps we have family members, friends, or colleagues dealing with alcohol or drug abuse, or perhaps we struggle with substance abuse ourselves. It’s becoming more and more socially acceptable to talk about these challenges, seek help, and pursue change.
