More About Thrive Treatment℠
Experience addiction & mental health treatment like you’ve never seen at Thrive Treatment℠ in Santa Monica, California. Our evidence-based, trusted program is here to help men recover once & for all.
We approach treatment with compassion, assertiveness, fun and a skilled clinical staff made up of master level clinicians.
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. We assist clients to develop healthy coping skills and learn to respond rather than react when you or your loved one is feeling out of control, triggered, hurt or angry. 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!
