ADDICTION DISORDERS

Our extensive treatment experience applies to the full range of today’s addictions: alcohol, drugs, food, gambling, sex, pornography, and the Internet. Our staff is experienced in related areas such as Co-dependency and Adult Children of Alcoholics. As specialists in these fields we serve or have served as program directors and consultants to a variety of treatment programs. Our familiarity with addiction combined with utilization of 12 Step support groups and psychiatry enable us to customize treatment and to refer to higher levels of care when required.

We provide comprehensive assessments for adults and adolescents to determine the presence of substance use, abuse, or dependency. We tailor treatment approaches which will lead to abstinence and sobriety, including individual and family psychotherapy, coordination with 12 Step support groups, medication when appropriate, and referral to outpatient, inpatient, or detox programs when indicated.

Dr. Gelbart leads our addictive disorders treatment. He is the Executive Director of the Thelma McMillen Center for Alcohol and Drug Treatment at Torrance Memorial Medical Center.

Dr. Yamaguchi, Dr. Friedman, Dr. Dworsky, Dr. Huang, Dr. Cutrow, Dr. Milestone, Charles Eckstein, Dr. Puri, and Stephen Makuch all have extensive experience in the treatment of addiction.
