Promises Drug and Alcohol Rehab for Professionals

Recovery begins with a promise.

Professionals Treatment at Promises (PTP) provides exceptional drug and alcohol addiction services to clients and referring professionals. We seek to deliver a new level of excellence in rehab care for professionals by building on the tradition of success achieved over the past 25 years by State Physician Health Programs (PHPs). We are a separate program specific to professionals and their unique issues, not just a track within a large, disparate client population. Our evaluations are thorough but efficiently conducted and based on validated diagnostic criteria. With an exceptional high staff-to-client ratio, we are able to provide remarkably individualized treatment plans with clearly defined treatment goals. Effective communication, teamwork and the highest quality of care are among our core principles and differentiate us from other professionals programs. We address co-occurring addictive behaviors and mental health issues and provide outstanding multifaceted support for spouses, significant others and children. Our addiction treatment center is purposefully located in a flourishing urban area so that our clients have convenient access to a breadth of specialized services and resources. Some of the keys to our success include:


  • One-on-One Attention–We keep our size small – a maximum of 20 clients – ensuring a highly customized treatment experience and plenty of one-on-one time with our treatment team.
  • Professional Clientele– Our focus on professionals provides clients with a peer group that they can relate to, sharing similar struggles and experiences.
  • Skilled Clinicians– Our therapists are highly seasoned doctoral level psychologists.
  • Separate Program – Many programs for professionals are merely a track within a larger treatment program, which may include young adults and other client populations. Promises® Professionals Treatment Program is a separate program specific to professionals.
  • 12-Step Alternatives Available– Our expansive range of therapies and non-12-Step resources enable us to meet the needs of patients who prefer alternatives to 12-Step recovery.
  • Convenient, Strategic Location– Many addiction treatment centers are located in isolated areas. Our program is strategically positioned in a thriving metropolitan community. This ensures our clients have convenient access to abundant local resources for complex evaluations such as cognitive impairment and sexual issues as well as treatment of co-occurring disorders like chronic pain, eating disorders, anxiety and panic. Resources include complementary care for our  pain management program, sleep disorder specialists, an affiliated sexual disorders program, eating and body dysmorphic disorder programs, a neurofeedback program, as well as programs for patients with serious medical issues and other problems.
  • Supportive Community – We offer a rich community of 12-Step and alternative recovery groups.
  • Helpful Partnerships – We partner with the world-renowned California Pain Medicine Center at UCLA to provide pain management evaluations and services.

Professionals Treatment Program

Program Foundation & Treatment Philosophy

Professionals Treatment at Promises (PTP) is primarily conducted as a residential day treatment program, though all levels of care are available. The program is for motivated adults (25 and over) who want to build long-term recoveries with a high quality of life.

Over the past three decades, an exceptional system of care has emerged in the U.S. to address the needs of professionals suffering from addictions and co-occurring disorders. This system is composed of specialized evaluation and treatment programs that work in concert with professional monitoring agencies and have achieved a remarkable record of documented success. A recent national study of professionals treated and managed under this system reported fewer relapses (less than 3% relapse rate per year) and preservation of careers (96% successfully returned to work).

Drawing on decades of experience and research, and utilizing what has been developed and learned, PTP includes the optimal components of care to offer the most effective approach possible. These components include:

  1. Thorough multidisciplinary evaluations based on validated diagnostic criteria
  2. Client-oriented treatment (with variable components and variable lengths of stay)
  3. Long-term monitoring and advocacy

Our program is focused not only on inappropriate use of drugs and alcohol, but on other addictive behaviors and mental health issues as well.
