ABOUT CHABAD RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT CENTER FOR MEN
Located on Los Angeles’ Miracle Mile, Chabad Residential Treatment Center for Men is one of 540 (37.8%) treatment facilities in the state to provide residential substance abuse treatment. This program is specifically for men ages 18 and up. The center’s multi-staged program is non-sectarian, but it does draw from the traditional values of the Jewish Torah. Chabad does not employ any medical staff, therefore individuals who require detox or treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders should seek care elsewhere.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Chabad uses a four-stage program to treat addiction. Stage one is a period of self-exploration: clients work with an individual therapist to better understand the problems underlying their addiction. In stage two, clients are introduced to the 12-Steps - incorporated into 78.3% of California substance abuse center programming - and begin to build and strengthen their network of peers, friends, and family members.
In stage three, clients are given more freedom and encouraged to focus on improving family dynamics and utilize their newfound problem-solving skills. In stage four, clients focus on transition by developing a plan for re-entering society, securing employment or pursuing educational opportunities, and solidifying communication and life skills.
According to its website, Chabad employs a team of highly experienced clinicians. The center offers a 1:1 staff-to-client ratio. In fact, 98.3% of substance abuse treatment centers in California have continuing education requirements for professional staff. To date, 13 former clients and facility staff have provided feedback to Rehabs.com.
