The BLVD philosophy emphasizes mindfulness, meditation, trauma work, giving back, creative self expression, community, and the importance of laying solid groundwork for a soulful and sustainable recovery. The approach to addiction is tri-fold, offering treatment that focuses on the mind, body and spirit. Through comprehensive outpatient services for alcohol and drug addiction, BLVD helps clients change their negative self perceptions and beliefs. Treatment is based on AA’s 12-Steps of recovery, and is administered in conjunction with group and individual therapy sessions.

She also volunteered regularly at a Hollywood non-profit organization where she and her brother would serve food to inner city underprivileged youth while providing them a safe place to gather and socialize. Now, as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Alexia believes that it was the love and support of her own family that drove her passion to want to help others in need.More
