David H. Ventura Recovery Center Client
When Ventura Recovery Center opened its doors in the Los Angeles area in 1989, our mission was simple: to provide the very best drug rehab and alcohol addiction treatment in a comfortable and calm, friendly setting. We have grown a lot since then, but our mission is still clear. Our proven success rates, JCAHO accreditation, and unique approach sets us apart from the rest. Our clients are not patients to us, they are family.
Our singular approach to alcohol and drug rehab embraces physical, emotional, and psychological health. A JCAHO accredited medically supervised drug detox treatment center, we provide inpatient drug rehab, intensive outpatient treatment, and sober living in a dual diagnosis environment.
We focus on the whole person. Specialized 30, 60 and 90-Day treatment options include individual and group therapy, allowing the time required to heal the body and renew the spirit. We also give you the tools to turn your life around once the program is completed. Making positive, thoughtful choices that lead to healthy and productive lives is the end goal of our alcoholism and drug addiction treatment center.
JCAHO Accredited, our Medical Drug and Alcohol Detox Program is tailored to provide the best possible care. Our highly trained staff closely monitors your progress to make sure the detox process is comfortable and safe.
Group and individual therapy sessions, life skills workshops, and social activities set our program of recovery apart. Our clients continue the drug rehabilitation process, build social bonds and enjoy activities like equine therapy, yoga, trips to the beach and playing sports.
Drug addiction is often coupled with a mental disorder like PTSD, depression or bipolar disorder. This is called "co-occurring" or dual diagnosis. Both illness need to be treated at the same time, involving psychiatric care as well as traditional counseling. We treat these co-occurring disorders with individualized plans for profound healing.
At Ventura Recovery Center we offer 30/60/90 day plans. We also offer long term options. Many of out clients stay with us 6 months or even a year. We believe that longer terms of drug rehab treatment lead to higher success rates. Our clients are able to not only recover physically, but also have the time to build a new way of life.
This rehab is amazing, a very comfortable detox when I first came in then a smooth transition to sober living where I was able to have the freedoms to find myself and start my life again. I was able to get a job when the time was appropriate for me and my needs. Being here has showed me that living sober can actually be enjoyable. The staff have been in our same position so they can relate and be supportive when you might be in crisis. As with any rehab if you aren’t ready to quit then you’ll find anything negative to say. This place saved my life and my brother’s life. It truly is a great place to start your new life.
Matthew Coco, client
Traumatic memories can block the emotional and mental system from growth and healing. A majority of people who are addicted to drugs or alcohol have traumatic events in their lives which linger in memory. Dealing with these negative memories and emotions can cause addiction or worsen an existing condition. Often times, a person takes drugs or alcohol to numb negative feelings because they are too hard to face alone. EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is a therapy process which heals those memories and replaces them with positive ones.
Robyn Blythe, our Clinical Director, explains what EMDR is and how it can help your or your loved one to heal past trauma and open your mind for a positive, sober experience of life.
