Introduction and Basic Services

Alo House Recovery Centers is a comprehensive treatment network and solid resource within the Southern California rehabilitation scene. With three different locations in Hollywood, Silver Lake and Malibu, California, Alo House offers everything from views of the ocean to the down home familiarity of a horse ranch. It offers detox, residential treatment, a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), standard outpatient care and transitional housing. Dual diagnosis support is also available.

Facility and Meals

With a capacity for a total of 74 residents across all its locations, Alo House offers two sober living facilities for IOP clients, three residential detox homes and two co-ed transitional houses. The residences have several configurations, including at least one private bedroom in each. Most feature vaulted ceilings and large skylights and two of the facilities have swimming pools. The Malibu location has an on-site gym.

Healthy, homemade and fresh signature meals are served family style after being prepared by chefs on staff. In the transitional houses, clients are provided with groceries and encouraged to make their own food.

Treatment Protocol and Team

Through Alo House’s primary inpatient program, which is usually around 90 days, residents can expect a vast array of therapies including CBT, DBT, EMDR and equine therapy. Twelve-step meetings as well as alternative, holistic approaches are also implemented. SMART Recovery and meditation meetings are available for clients seeking an alternative to AA. Individual therapy is a part of recovery, with two to three sessions per week. A doctor is on-call in addition to being on site five to six days a week. A psychiatrist is also always on-call and on-site three to four days a week. Detox is available for any length of time necessary to stabilize the client. In terms of dual diagnosis support, residents are offered individual as well as group therapy targeted toward co-occurring disorders, plus medication management and the necessary psychiatric services.

Alo House boasts a robust staff of 80, and a staff-to-client ratio of one-to-one. All staff members dealing directly with clients are Master’s-level. Alo House has PhD, LCSW, LMFT, CADC-II and ICADC credentialed members.

Alo House embraces technology with Skype and FaceTime sessions available through the family program. On Wednesdays Alo House offers a free community support group with live coaching and support for families of those in early recovery. Alo House believes healing the family dynamic is crucial to recovery for the client and family as a unit.

Bonus Amenities

Alo House offers yoga, art therapy, surfing, horseback rides and sweat lodge retreats to make the clients journey as tailored to their needs as possible. Off-site visits are planned to local hikes, spiritual centers and various other adventures in the surrounding areas.

A network of alumni and alumni events connect former residents with those experiencing recovery outside formalized care.


Alo House emphasizes a compassionate care model with many paths leading to recovery. A focus on connection instead of control makes it a unique member of the Southern California recovery community. Alo House uses every tool in the toolbox to motivate residents along the path to recovery.
