When The Motion Picture & Television Fund decided to create a treatment facility in 1975 it was primarily to offer alcohol addiction treatment to entertainment industry workers, including some very famous stars of that era. And, its reputation for honest, effective care was quickly made and word spread throughout the industry.
Today, we’ve expanded well beyond alcoholism into all forms of drug addiction treatment, including opioids, cocaine, meth, Benzodiazepines, Adderall and other stimulants and more. In fact, Recovery Guild has been expanded and completely rebuilt into one of the most contemporary and comfortable treatment centers anywhere.
We’ve Upgraded Everything, Including Our Alcoholism Treatment
Today, a lot has been discovered about alcoholism and new and effective methods for alcoholism treatment have been developed. It used to be, in the old days, that most people with an alcohol problem simply “white knuckled” their way into recovery. But scientific research has taught us a lot about how alcohol behaves in the body and the impact addiction has on the brain and body.
Psychology has also come a long way and we now have far more information to work with, as well as new methodologies and therapies. Given that a large percentage of addictions in general are accompanied by another form of disorder, or a “coexisting” disorder. Many times this coexisting disorder is some form of earlier physical or mental trauma which also needs to be treated.
There are many new therapies that we incorporate into treatment specifically for this purpose, including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), equine therapy and much more.
Alcohol Abuse Treatment that Works
When you come to recovery Guild, the first thing we do is get a lot of information from you about how you started abusing alcohol, how long it’s been, other factors in your life that may contribute, etc. We also go over the alcohol abuse treatment options with you in order to create a program that works specifically for you.
With your input and involvement we know you’re more likely to be committed to achieving success in treatment. And that’s what we’re all after. It’s why we’re here. It’s also why we’re recreated Recovery Guild to be more comfortable during treatment, because beating addiction is hard enough. A few creature comforts go a long way. Like having mostly single rooms with double beds so you have some room to spread out. Most rooms also have flat screen TVs.
We also have a restaurant grade kitchen and a gourmet chef making meals and snacks that are not only delicious but help heal bodies and brains ravaged by addiction. So, give us a call and let’s talk about how we can help you beat addiction and get your life back.
