Specialization

  • Holistic Therapy
    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
  • Intensive Outpatient
    Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.

Extremely effective if you go in with a positive attitude and are serious about work on “you” to become the best you , you can possibly be. Its well maintained and classy. IOP is amazing is very beneficial . You will realize it’s everything you have hoped it would be.

Horrible experience here. Stayed for 3 months. Owner had her kids living in the same facility as the clients. When I finally decided to leave the owner told me i'd never make it because she was mad I was leaving. Again - one of the worst sober living/treatment facility.

Very luxurious and very clean. The house manager was extremely attentive to the patients every need and was always available 24 hours a day. Hard to find a weakness with this exceptionally well maintained and professionally run facility. From the point of intake the staff and director were very kind and showed a high level of concern and expertise. Very well maintained and beautifully furnished gender specific sober living homes for men and women. The homes are pet friendly, which makes a real feeling of being in your own home. The staff is very gracious and concerned, and take the extra time and effort to make the environment feel so comfortable and safe. Really very well run facilities, with just the right amount of structure and compassion.

This is a HORRIBLE program. The services are minimal at best, the staff are unprofessional.

I see a lot of negative comments on here but each individual\'s journey is different especially since we are addicts and alcoholics. I\'ve stayed at A Step in the Right Direction twice, once back in 2009 after a 30 day rehab at PRC and this is before ASITRD had an outpatient facility. After rehab I stayed at the house for 5 months and continued to be sober after I left for 5 years. I believe ASITRD gives you a solid foundation to continue building your sobriety but if your not working a program also of some sort, then it doesn\'t really matter where you go for treatment or which sober living you stay at. The current house manager, is the best house manager I\'ve ever had the privilege to live with and I\'ve been at a lot of sober livings from LA to SF, she really takes the time to get to know you individually and help you in any way possible that she can, also she\'s an amazing cook!!! As I mentioned, I had 5 years of sobriety previously after I left the house and I relapsed; so I decided to move from SF to LA to stay at ASITRD since I had such success before but this time they now had the outpatient center not to far from the house and provide transportation to and from the center. I wasn\'t financially able to admit myself in an inpatient program, so this was my first time trying an outpatient program. I ended up attending their outpatient program for 9 months, now not everyone stays that long but I chose to cause that\'s how much help I needed to get sober, everyone\'s story is different. Right now, I am currently at the house; been here 14 months and have been sober 14 months. Before I came here I had lost everything and was staying at a bug bed infested motel 6 on sepulveda with my dying dog Mila. It was horrific and I still can\'t believe I made it out the other end; the light at the end of the tunnel, it is possible. And ASITRD had a huge role in helping me accomplish this. Now, I just got hired at an amazing job, I\'m eligible to get my restricted license (those of us with DUI\'s), my family and friends have let me back into their lives and most of all I just got engaged! I never thought a year ago this would be my fairytale ending. Things still aren\'t perfect and I don\'t have much still, far as material items or a car but I\'m the happiest I\'ve ever been! Thank you to two staff members in particular for being apart of this journey, I couldn\'t be more grateful! xoxo
