SPECIALTY PROGRAMS FOR A DEEPER FOCUS
Designed specifically for the patient
To meet the needs of clients who require a more in-depth, specialized treatment experience, we have developed specialty tracks that concentrate on specific areas of recovery. These programs are designed to provide the support and expertise necessary for comprehensive healing and long-term sobriety.
At Journey Hillside Tarzana, our specialty tracks expand upon and complement our regular programming to ensure a diverse and dynamic array of treatment options. These programs utilize specialized approaches personalized for each individual and are directed by a highly trained, dedicated staff. Our specialty programs include:
The Impaired Professionals program at Journey Hillside Tarzana provides advanced case management, intensive counseling services and a focus on the unique needs of licensed professionals affected by addiction. Our goal is to treat patients so they can achieve sustainable recovery and maintain their professional status. Throughout the recovery process, we maintain close contact with referring agencies, professional boards and state licensing authorities to ensure that all treatment requirements are satisfied and patients can return to their careers.
Journey Hillside Tarzana utilizes the proven methods of the 12-step approach to recovery as the foundation of our treatment program. The 12-Step Track provides patients with an intense focus that serves as a firm grounding on which to begin their healing. Participants will study the Big Book and 12×12 principles, attend fourth step workshops and become integrated into the broad 12-step community for support, guidance and encouragement.
The Holistic Track incorporates a blend of Eastern and Western methodology for individuals that prefer an alternative approach to recovery. Techniques include using yoga, meditation, mindfulness training and higher degrees of individual therapy to help patients heal in a way that makes sense to them.
We recognize that for some patients, medication-assisted treatment is an integral part of the recovery journey. Studies have shown greater outcomes and higher success rates in recovery when medications were used in conjunction with treatment services such as individual and group therapy. Due to the benefits of medication-assisted treatment, we actively support the use of medications throughout recovery and recognize its important role in addiction medicine.
Each patient will be thoroughly assessed at the beginning of detox and residential care to determine if medication-assisted treatment is appropriate, taking into consideration factors such as withdrawal symptoms, the severity of one’s substance use and the presence of any co-occurring or mental health disorders. Our nursing and physician staff work closely with patients to coordinate an individualized care plan that addresses their unique concerns and ensures optimal safety and comfort.
