We are a substance abuse and alcohol outpatient program. This means that we provide a supportive and therapeutic environment for anyone who is seeking help, without having to leave home, their job, family responsibilities, or their loved ones in order to receive great treatment. We look for men and women who are serious about changing their lives, highly motivated to change, and are willing to be honest and open-minded through this process.

We offer various tracks and services that are designed on a person to person basis and dependent upon the need of the individual. We feel that for anyone who has started their journey in recovery, whether it is inpatient treatment (rehab), sober living, or community-based support groups, they will need ongoing outpatient support via education, group therapy, individual therapy, trauma work, and family counseling to ensure the best possible outcome of their ongoing process of achieving sobriety. We treat anyone 18 years of age and older, with a substance abuse primary issue, but who may also be struggling with anxiety, depression and other mental health concerns.

Our Treatment Programs

We are located in Westlake Village, California, which is not only a beautiful community, but because of its central location to Los Angeles, has allowed us access to some of the finest specialists and leaders in this field.

If you or a loved one thinks they have a problem, honestly wants to change, we would love to meet with you and talk with no strings attached. Even if you choose not to come to us for your treatment needs, we just want to be helpful in any way we can. We commend you for seeking answers and believe that this is the most loving thing you can be doing for everyone in your life.



We will help by creating a treatment plan that will fit your needs, or the needs of your loved one, that also accepts your insurance.


We monitor our clients throughout the course of treatment and liaison with their family.


We create an aftercare plan, as well as sober advocacy for the client


The Recovery Advocates difference exists on many levels and is the culmination of many years of experience; but at the heart of it all, the drive behind optimizing the client’s experience here is founded on a core passion to help change lives and rebuild families. We understand the worlds of active addiction and active recovery from every angle. More importantly though, we apply our expertise in a way that manifests as a “treatment experience” rather than just another drug rehab center.

How Are We Different?

There are a variety of differences to highlight when comparing Recovery Advocates to the many other treatment centers out there…from affordability, to our uniquely qualified staff, to our highly successful hybrid approach of combining advanced approaches along with 12-Step, alternative and holistic recovery services. Since our inception in 2007 we have aspired to remain on the cutting edge of rehabilitation. Many individuals come to us with little or no hope at the prospect of finding joy and contentment while living a sober lifestyle. But more often than not, they find themselves amazed at what life has to offer after a short time in our care.
