Substance Abuse And Mental Health Programs in Los Angeles, California

At Forward Recovery, we provide everything you need to face your mental health issues and permanently end addiction. Even if this isn't your first time in treatment, we'll help you break the cycle. We offer sound therapeutic methods to treat opioid addiction, alcohol abuse or any other substance as well as mental health issues. Our substance abuse and mental health programs are evidence-based and effective—and compassionate.

We know you didn’t choose your addiction, it chose you. Mental Health issues are not a choice either. We’ll help you to find and address the underlying causes of your substance abuse, work through past trauma, learn healthy ways of thinking and behaving and develop tools to successfully handle triggers and cope with cravings and challenges.

Filling in missing life skills is also a big part of what we do here. We can assist you to enroll in college, complete vocational training, find employment or learn how to use a budget. If legal problems are following you from your days of active addiction, we can help you find an attorney and navigate the court process. Whatever skills you’re missing, we can help.


Forward Recovery’s Full Continuum of Care

Residential Treatment

Live on property in a supported, trigger-free environment. The expert staff of Forward Recovery’s residential substance abuse programs offer 24/7 support and will walk you through intensive therapy while listening with open hearts.


Intensive Outpatient

For clients who need intensive therapy but not full-time support, we offer our intensive outpatient program. This level of care provides intensive therapy while allowing you the freedom to attend work or school while staying in one of our luxurious sober living homes.


Outpatient Program

Similar to IOP, our outpatient program offers therapy on a flexible schedule and encourages increasing independence as you learn to successfully handle triggers, cope with cravings and live a life you love in recovery.


Aftercare Treatment

Recovery doesn’t end once you’ve graduated from treatment. We offer ongoing support, and we’re always here when you need us. Once you’ve been to Forward Recovery you’re family, and we love our family members.
