Introduction and Basic Services

Recovery Guild is located in Studio City, California in the San Fernando Valley region of Greater Los Angeles. It is a relatively new addition to the Southern California recovery community and offers detox and residential treatment that’s highly individualized and tailored to each client’s unique needs. Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) can be facilitated if needed, and programming implements both evidence-based practices and elements of the 12 steps.

Facility and Meals

Clients stay in a two-story home situated in a quiet residential neighborhood close to transportation, shops and grocery stores. The spacious facility, which was recently remodeled, includes all new stainless steel appliances and fixtures. There are only six beds, and there are both private and semi-private bedroom available, all furnished with queen sized beds and TVs equipped with WiFi. The shared bathrooms have showers and tubs, and there is plenty of space for storage.

The large, open living room has couches and chairs, and an additional mounted, flat screen TV sits just above the mantle. There is also a dining room, meeting space, game room with pool table and backyard that features a garden, pool and hot tub.

An executive chef lends his talents to Recovery Guild and prepares five-star meals for the clients daily. He sometimes even includes organic ingredients from the property’s garden.

Treatment Protocol and Team

Typically treatment tracks at Recovery Guild are about 30 days or so, and those who need detox spend five to seven days under 24/7 medical care. During this process the staff provides medication in conjunction with holistic measures, like fresh pressed juices to rid the body of any built up toxins. Once the client is in better physical conditon and able to start the behavioral health aspect of treatment, he or she can expect days filled with group and individual therapy, classes and lectures.

There are at least two individual sessions per week and nightly 12-step or SMART Recovery meetings to which the staff provides transporation. Those with a dual diagnosis have access to a psychiatrist who does an assessment and facilitates medication management if needed.

All programming is customized to suit each client's specific needs. There is an emphasis on relaxation and emotional health along with treating the sypmtoms associated with addiction. Therapeutic approaches include CBT and DBT, along with holistic methods, like relaxation techniques, guided meditation and nutritional counseling.

A medical director oversees the programming at Recovery Guild and heads up a team of seasoned professionals. Staff includes recovery techs, CADC and case managers.

Aftercare is offered in the form of long-term follow ups, peer support and alumni meetings, and referrals to outpatient treatment.

Bonus Amenities

Clients have the opportunity to enjoy several sober recreational activities each week including visiting nearby theme parks and taking TV studio tours, or beach and hiking trips. Residents enjoy a gym membership and complimentary yoga classes too. Additionally, Recovery Guild is pet friendly, so residents can have their animals with them during their stay at the residence.

Summary

Recovery Guild offers sunshine, ultimate amenities and structured treatment in an intimate and supportive setting. With a small number of clients and a well-rounded combination of peer support, evidence-based car and holistic modalities, this is certainly a solid choice for setting the foundation for long-term recovery and sobriety.
