We treat individuals 18 years or older struggling with substance use disorders.
We help people from all walks of life find the comfort, stability and serenity they need to take a step back and heal from addiction. Whether you’ve been to treatment before or not, we offer detox, inpatient residential and long-term care for clients regardless of where they are in their recovery journey.
People start using drugs for numerous reasons. At Journey Hillside Tarzana, we’ll help you explore why you turned to substance use and help you answer some of the important questions: Who am I? What do I want out of life? What brings me joy? Understanding who you are and the depths of your drug use will empower you to start rebuilding a healthier life, strong identity and authentic way of being.
Evidence-based treatment modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), the 12-step program and mindfulness training will help you rediscover the passions, hobbies and goals that burned so brightly before your addiction overshadowed everything else. We firmly believe that no matter where you’ve been or how you got there, you are still you at your core. Our experienced team of addiction specialists and medical professionals can help you reveal your true self and set your life back on track.
WHAT IS ADDICTION?
Addiction is the urge to use drugs or alcohol despite negative consequences or the desire to stop.
Addiction is disruptive to an individual’s life and impacts their personal relationships and overall well-being. Someone who is addicted to a substance will also find it difficult to perform duties and responsibilities or hold down a steady job. In the case of those in our Professionals Program, addiction can even threaten a well-established career and wreak havoc on one’s reputation.
Despite these negative effects, someone with an addiction cannot easily overcome it without professional help. With prolonged drug use, tolerance develops, which means that more of a drug is needed to reach desired effects. A higher tolerance can increase an individual’s risk of experiencing adverse side effects or overdose, especially during a relapse. It can also make detox more challenging. Over time, it can become physically or psychologically impossible to stop using drugs or alcohol, especially as dangerous withdrawal effects begin to develop. This loss of control is frightening to both their individual and their friends or family. If left unchecked addiction can get progressively worse and become life-threatening.
No two individuals respond to substance use or addiction in the same way. Someone may experience none of these signs, all of them, or something in-between. Over time, drug or alcohol use can take a toll on the individual and their loved ones, making it important to reach out before it’s too late. With proper treatment and a good support network, recovery is possible no matter how deep your addiction runs. Journey Hillside Tarzana provides comprehensive treatment programs and evidence-based therapies to help adults from the first steps of recovery to the last.
If you suspect that someone you care about is using drugs or alcohol and you think they might be addicted, there are some signs and symptoms you can look for, such as:

Alumni Programs & Aftercare Support
In addition to our signature services and specialty tracks, we also offer alumni programs and aftercare support for clients after they leave our facility. Ongoing support in recovery is essential for avoiding relapse and connecting clients with like-minded individuals within the broader recovery community.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications in the treatment of substance use disorders. Used in combination with behavioral therapies, counseling and other treatment services, MAT provides a holistic approach that treats an individual and their symptoms as a whole. MAT is also useful during detox and withdrawal to help patients feel more comfortable and promote a more positive treatment experience.
Journey Hillside Tarzana recognizes MAT as an integral part of our addiction medicine. We actively support the use of medications throughout recovery, as research consistently shows better outcomes when MAT is combined with treatment services such as individual and group therapy. Clients will work closely with their therapists and addiction specialists to determine if and when MAT is necessary and develop an individualized treatment plan that incorporates the use of medications when appropriate.
PROFESSIONALS STRUGGLING WITH ADDICTION
Addiction is still highly stigmatized, despite its ability to affect people from all walks of life. Society often has a narrow view of addiction, associating substance use with poverty, crime and misfortune. These stereotypes fail to include the well-educated, high-achieving individuals with established careers that can also be affected by addiction, making it difficult for them to get the help they need.
Journey Hillside Tarzana offers unique programs for these individuals, offering a deeper focus and specialized treatment aimed at maintaining one’s professional standing. Our Professionals Track helps those in high-stress, intensive fields recover from substance abuse and preserve their careers.
We treat professionals in various occupations, including:
- DOCTORS AND PHYSICIANS
- LAWYERS AND ATTORNEYS
- BUSINESS EXECUTIVES
- PSYCHOLOGISTS AND THERAPISTS
- GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS
If you’re a working professional battling addiction, it may feel like you’re working two full-time jobs. The demands of your career, combined with the stress and struggle of addiction, can seem like too much to carry. We’re here to help you bear the load and start your journey towards recovery.
Our Professionals Program meets the unique needs of individuals working intensely demanding jobs while struggling to break the cycle of addiction. Throughout the process, we maintain close contact with professional boards and provide treatment that meets the high standards of licensing and accrediting organizations.
In our Professionals Program, you will not only find the treatment you need, but find an ally that will advocate for you so you can return to work with your sobriety — and your license — intact.
The 12-step program has helped countless individuals find freedom from addiction, and it serves as the foundation for organizations like Alcoholics Anonymous. The 12 steps in the program can be applied to any addiction, and they help those struggling with addiction to find community, confidence, and professional support for sustained recovery.
Our 12-Step Track uses the tried-and-true model employed by AA, but it’s not just for those with alcohol abuse issues. Our 12-Step Program can help anyone find the emotional support and accountability they need to make the next crucial step in the recovery journey. Whatever your personal battle is, our 12-Step Program can help you fight.
Our Holistic Track is a treatment program that blends both Eastern and Western philosophies to nurture and restore your body, mind, and spirit. Addiction affects the entire self, not just the physical body, and this treatment program addresses the unique and pressing emotional and spiritual needs that addiction presents.
From this unique program, you can expect treatment that includes practices like yoga, meditation, mindfulness training, nature therapy, and more. With help from these unique treatment methods, you can reconnect with yourself and find holistic healing, setting you on a course towards long-term sobriety.
Veteran PTSD Track
If you’re dealing with PTSD and addiction, you don’t have to fight alone. Our Veteran Program exists to help service members who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and have coexisting substance abuse issues. We’re here to break through the shame and isolation that addiction and PTSD can cause, and we want to help you find the strength to achieve recovery and sobriety.
Our Veteran PTSD Track includes multiple forms of evidence-based treatment for PTSD and addiction, including eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, stress inoculation training, and individual and group sessions. It’s a comprehensive program designed specifically with veterans in mind.
First Responders Program
First responders deal with intense stress while on the job, and that stress can follow you home after the shift is over. For many first responders, the pressures and trauma of the job can lead to an unhealthy relationship with substances like drugs and alcohol. If that’s where you find yourself, we’re here to help.
Our First Responders Program addresses the unique needs of EMTs, firefighters, and other emergency personnel, addressing both addiction and its underlying causes. We offer help with professional reintegration, relapse prevention, and more, as well as family support for the loved ones of first responders in treatment.
