Whether a young adult requires residential treatment, sober living, day treatment or outpatient support, he or she can expect the innovative treatment and superior care that Promises is known for. Some of the features that set our young adult rehab program apart from others include:

  • Opportunities to integrate real world experiences into drug rehab treatment through local outings and activities
  • Personalized treatment plans
  • Comprehensive addiction treatment delivered by a team of experienced, credentialed professionals, some of whom are in recovery themselves

We are fully invested in our clients’ success, never losing sight of long-term recovery as the ultimate goal. Our unique young adult rehab program is divided into four distinct phases that span a four-month treatment period:

  • Phase 1: Stabilization and introduction to key concepts
  • Phase 2: Tools for developing life skills, with a focus on treatment, personal responsibility and accountability
  • Phase 3: Building life skills; finding employment or a volunteer position or going back to school
  • Phase 4: Launch back into life and society

The program is rooted in the 12 Steps, and also addresses grief/loss, emotion dysregulation, trauma and other issues that contribute to unhealthy behaviors. Each client moves through the stages of change in a structured sequence that includes:

  • Comprehensive assessments
  • Medically monitored detox
  • Individual, group and family therapy
  • Psychoeducational groups
  • Psychiatric care
  • Neurofeedback
  • Equine therapy

Program Features

Wolf therapy. Promises young adult program offers wolf therapy, a highly effective day-long experience that includes hiking, team-building and interacting with wolves in a uniquely spiritual way. The outings are challenging and illuminating, with the wolves offering effective lessons in communication, compassion and engagement.

Intensive family therapy. Every client is assigned a clinician for family therapy. Each week there is a family group led by a licensed marriage and family therapist, a family members-only group led by one of our other clinicians, and a multi-family group. In addition to these groups, the family therapist works with each family separately on specific issues, and clients and their families are invited to participate in a four-day intensive family program.

Rock to Recovery. Each week, professional rock musicians with a personal understanding of addiction and recovery arrive on campus and work with clients in a fun, therapeutic “Rock Academy.” Over the course of just one session, the musicians help residents form a band, write a song and perform the song. Through word and deed, the musicians in Rock to Recovery demonstrate that sobriety can fuel creativity in constructive, meaningful ways.

Alumni events. Promises sponsors ongoing recreational and social events for alumni designed to encourage continued engagement with the program and with other graduates. Called “Sober Fun,” events include movie screenings, barbecues and sports leagues, offered with the goal of demonstrating that being young and sober is not only attainable, but stimulating and rewarding.

For more than 25 years, Promises drug rehab center in West Los Angeles has provided clients with the comprehensive care and support they need to recover from addiction and mental health issues.
