The residential facility is located in West LA in an upscale neighborhood, and is situated in a 5,000 square foot, Spanish style private home. The beautifully designed and elegantly decorated house was once owned by a French diplomat, and boasts private suites and semi private rooms with six beds in total. Every room has a private balcony or patio and plasma TVs complete with Netflix and DirectV.

Individual therapy is also highly utilized at 1 Method as opposed to groups therapy, though there are some group activities.

For those with an existing co-occurring disorder, medication management is offered and overseen by a psychiatrist.
