Treatment Approach

We approach treatment with compassion, Masters and Doctoral clinical skill, personal experience, straight talk and fun.  We become a family.  And together, we work hard and safely play hard.

We believe that a combination of modern and traditional therapeutic practices are the best way to reach these goals. Thrive integrates relational and behavioral therapies, along with holistic, medical and psychiatric interventions to help clients reach not only sobriety, but also emotional health and lasting well-being. We don’t subscribe to one specific modality. Everyone is an individual and treatment plans shift and change based on personal needs.

Goals of Treatment:

  • Sustained sobriety
  • Gaining insight into the underlying causes of our addiction
  • Identity development, including personal values
  • Developing healthy communication skills, including boundary setting and self-advocacy
  • Healing broken relationships and letting go of toxic relationships
  • Healthy coping skills
  • Learning how to self-care

We develop healthy skills to respond when you or your loved is feeling out of control, triggered, hurt or angry, rather than to simply react. Clients learn to be of service to others, and they even begin to like themselves. Through this proven process, clients learn there is a chance!

Anchored by these basic building blocks, Thrive Treatment takes recovery to the next level and prides itself on working one-on-one to help our clients explore their purpose, enroll in nearby Santa Monica College or UCLA schools or connect them to jobs in the bustling Thrive Treatment neighborhood. Most of all, we have fun together! Because boredom is a big trigger for newly clean clients, we provide a contained space for them to learn new ways to find excitement in their lives.  Picnics, softball, surfing, yoga and more, we take advantage of our city parks and beaches to play as a family, yours and ours. Here, we learn: We don’t just survive, we thrive!
