The Encino Recovery and Detox Center Is the Path to Recovery

The Encino Recovery and Detox Center is made up of a multidisciplinary team of dedicated professionals with over 127 years of combined recovery, lived experience and advanced education helping people out of despair and back into their lives and relationships. Our mission is to help people choose to end their dependent relationship on drugs and alcohol and the isolation, shame and loneliness that comes with. We do this by instilling self-confidence free from addiction, addictive behaviors, and unwanted mental health symptoms. The Encino Recovery and Detox Center created a pathway which not only helps people stop using but lays the foundation for a life of health and wellness with positive, supportive relationships and freedom.

Each of our team members were handpicked to ensure The Encino Recovery and Detox Centerr exceeds our clients and industry standards. We love what they do, and it is reflected in the way we care for clients. With the right balance of professionalism and empathic care, we work hard to ensure our clients emerge with healthy attachments, ability to self-regulate emotional distress and increased competencies.

Treatment Values

Recovery from addiction and co-occurring disorders means more than no longer using substances. Recovery is a process of being re-introduced to oneself in a more loving way. This is accomplished by identifying unmet needs, non-spoken truths, hidden hurt, and finding peace by looking inward to heal and ‘Dropping The Rock’.  We offer evidence-based and evidenced informed treatment modalities such as DBT, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Neurofeedback, Psychotherapy, and Exercise Physiology to help people find their way. Our clients will be asked difficult questions like, “what if I came to believe I am mistaken about myself?” By approaching the people who struggle with addiction, beyond managing symptoms and maintaining sobriety, our clients are exposed to an opportunity to be in this world without addiction, shame and isolation and find the gifts within friendship, relationship, opportunity and the power within.

Treatment and Philosophy

The Encino Recovery and Detox Center understands that although addiction and addictive behaviors may temporarily alleviate unwanted thoughts and or feelings, addiction and addictive behavior happens in the absence of healthy relationships. Over time, addiction interferes with creativity, intimacy, educational and occupational successes, and a person’s overall health and wellness.

The Encino Recovery and Detox Center respectfully sees addiction as a chronic relapsing disorder characterized by compulsive drug seeking, continued use despite harmful consequences, and long-lasting changes in the brain.  It is considered both a complex brain disorder and a mental illness. Addiction is first identified by men and women as a helper to one’s emotional and physical stability. The long-term goal is to create a master list of creative and relationally based alternatives that the person struggling with addiction can utilize when the urge to use arises. It is important to note that young adults do stop using and do eventually feel better – they are all people in need of consistent, relationship-oriented support, nurturance, and guidance. This program has as a foundational goal the desire to help reintroduce people to themselves, in a more loving way.

We Treat Addiction, We Help


Together, the therapeutic relationship promotes health, creativity, stability and wellness. It is the relationship between patient, family, and therapist that helps to rebuild a connection with oneself and within the family. This program creates an opportunity to form relationships that are secure, safe, and honest. The Encino Recovery and Detox Center is a place where verbal communication is encouraged and supported, where the person struggling with addiction builds healthy attachments.

The Encino Recovery and Detox Center realizes that people who struggle with the effects of addiction and or mental health have often times endured many failed therapeutic interventions and/or repeated inpatient care. Our goal is to create a therapeutic partnership that creates lasting peace, safety, health and freedom. The Encino Recovery and Detox Center provides an opportunity to develop alternatives to the isolation, shame and loneliness: leading to more satisfying and intimate relationships with oneself and with others. 

A central element of treatment at The Encino Recovery and Detox Center is to help men and women in early recovery have their medical needs attended to and learn the meaning of how they got here. To learn to predict misery and improve a connection to oneself and others.
