  • Client & Family Support Groups

    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
  • Individualized Treatment

    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

    Larry LuttrellFounder
    Originally from Casey County, Larry began his training in structured transitional living management in Los Angeles in 1990 with Jerry Polcaro, PhD at New Life House and then later with Robert Mellan, PhD at Liberty House. Larry has gained competencies in running nonclinical processing and feedback groups as well as implementing the Gorski Method of Relapse Prevention within the structure of his transitional livings, resulting in remarkably lower relapse rates. Known for his intuition, extraordinary skills in breaking behavior apart, and over 28 years of experience working with addicted populations and their families, Larry has carved out an unbeatable reputation in the recovery community. Since opening multiple tansitional livings, a detox program, as well as an outpatient program, Larry has continued to work alongside many professionals in the field including James Woods, PhD of Promises Treatment Center and Bernard McInerny, PhD. and Romana Zvereva, M.D. of Betty Ford Treatment Center. Considered an expert in the field, Larry has paved the way for many other professionals to utilize structured transitional living programs as effective long term treatment options for drug addicts and alcoholics. His revolutionary methods for implementing practical application of the 12 steps within the structure are innovative and have been replicated across the country.
