A Step in The Right Direction Addiction Treatment, Treatment Center in Northridge

We are Here to Help

A Step in the Right Direction is a full-service Addiction Treatment Center providing addiction & co-occurring disorder treatment programs/services, and optional upscale & affordable recovery residences in greater Los Angeles. Our Programs/services include individual/family/group counseling, ambulatory detox, partial hospitalization (PHP), intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), and a Recovery Wellness Membership Program. We provide addiction counseling, education, treatment and ongoing support to clients as they move toward self-sufficiency. We treat Alcohol Abuse, Drug abuse, Dual-Diagnosis Disorders such as Anxiety, Bi-Polar, Depression, PTSD/Trauma and Co-Dependency. Our programs are highly effective for individuals who have work or school, family, and other commitments that require substance abuse treatment on a "real-world" basis. Real-world experience in recovery has shown us that drug and alcohol treatment is not effective when used as a means to escape life and personal responsibilities. Much to the contrary, effective treatment empowers you to live in recovery. As an option, we offer sober living homes for both men and women (gender-specific), both within a short distance from our treatment facility. Our clients are proof that life lived in recovery and integrity is not only possible, it is attainable.

Client-Centered, Evidence-Based Approach

Our approach at A Step In The Right Direction is evidence-based, customized around each client, and prepares clients for day-to-day living after treatment and real road recovery. Clients work with counselors and group leaders on fundamental life skills, as well as with a team of experienced counselors and PHD level therapists. We make our treatment plans to fit your schedule. Many on our recovery team have personal experience in recovery, and experience helping clients set, chart and launch their course forward. At A Step in the Right Direction, intensive treatment addresses meeting a client's fundamental needs with evidence-based treatment methods, preparing them to live successfully, and more easily, when leaving our program. While participating in any of our programs, clients have the option to live in our nearby sober living recovery homes or sober housing of their own. Clients and their families are invited to participate in our family programs, which includes education and discussion about the disease of addiction, family therapy and multi-family group therapy, among other forms of support. Clients will meet with their therapists during treatment, and are invited to join our wellness recovery program for ongoing support.

Ever-Evolving Addiction Treatment

The support and therapy options we provide is based on real-world evidence and is ever-evolving based on our client's needs. We customize treatment plans, relapse prevention and life planing skills to the needs of each individual so that they are fully prepared to live in successful recovery. Housed in a beautifully inviting space, we offer a private place for confidential, continued healing and recovery. Our groups facilitate open interaction between staff and clients, which eases the transition to more interpersonal connection that is essential for long-term recovery outside of treatment.
