Alta Centers, a Los Angeles based organization treating addiction and substance abuse, has opened an upscale detox facility located blocks away from the historic Hollywood sign. The new program called Hollywoodland Recovery will be focused on treating those affected by the opiate epidemic. This serene location in the heart of the entertainment industry is focused on providing individual care to patients while engaging them in the steps they can take for their recovery following detox. Alta Centers resort-like atmosphere offers personalized individual care to clients as they go through the difficult first step of their recovery.
Alta Centers opened in 2015 as an outpatient program and has concentrated on offering individuals structured treatment throughout their recovery. Alta’s mission has been to treat addiction and to offer those suffering from addiction insight into not only remaining clean, but to enjoy sobriety. Alta Centers was awarded Joint Commission Accreditation in 2016.
“What we have here at Alta Centers, is an environment where those suffering from addiction can not only get sober, but see that there is an outlook to sobriety that can be fun and exciting. I’m a young person, and if I didn’t have friends that taught me sobriety could be fun, I don’t know if I could of done it.”
Garrett Braukman, Executive Director of Alta Centers
