1 Method Center Outpatient Review

Los Angeles-based 1 Method Center offers day and night outpatient care with a sober living option. Located in LA’s upscale Westside area, 1 Method was founded in September 2014 by Cassidy Cousens, a certified addiction counselor who previously created the Authentic Recovery program. Based on his success with Authentic Recovery, Cousens wanted to create a new highly individualized, abstinence-based addiction and co-occurring disorders program. Although the continuum of care offered by 1 Method begins with detox and residential treatment, the outpatient programs are available as a stand-alone service for those who have completed another rehab or do not require the intensity of 24-hour supervision.

Treatment and Staff

Outpatient treatment at 1 Method is individualized but the average duration is 30 to 45 days. Treatment centers around finding the root of the addiction and specifically addressing co-occurring mental health disorders.

Day treatment clients attend therapy during the day three to five days a week for three hours. They return home or to their sober living house at the end of the day. This level of care provides structure and support while helping the client begin integrating back into daily life. The night program is designed for those who have work or school commitments during the day and meets three evenings a week for 6 to 9 pm. The programs include individual and group therapy that follows a CBT approach and medication management is offered for co-occurring disorders. Clients are also encouraged to attend 12-step meetings in the community but this is not mandatory.

The team includes physicians, a nurse practitioner, psychiatrists, CADCs and MFTs. There is also a staff nutritionist, several fitness trainers and a yoga instructor.


An important component of the 1 Method experience is a specialized health and fitness program that’s customized to a client’s needs. This program is available to outpatient clients and includes fitness training, yoga classes and nutritional counseling.

There is an upscale co-ed sober living option offered by 1 Method Recovery for clients who are enrolled in the outpatient program. The house has six beds, with private rooms available at an additional cost. Residents benefit from the support of a sober community and have access to many of the benefits of the residential program.

In Summary

The outpatient program provided by 1 Method is perfect for those seeking additional support upon completion of primary care. The combo of evidence-based treatment and health and fitness set this program apart. The added bonus of a safe and comfortable sober living home make this an excellent choice for those who want the support of a recovery community.

  1. I attended this program after touring several different centers in West Los Angeles. I only enrolled for day treatment and not sober living.

    First, the environment is really nice. It’s a comfortable place with a focus on therapy and meditation and it’s very peaceful. I definitely enjoyed coming there day to day.

    More importantly, they deliver. The staff is highly skilled and I loved working with them. The program is generally a combination of individual and group therapy, but I would say they definitely emphasize individual approaches. They offer meditation, breathing classes, yoga, and the health program is included. That part has a nutritionist and you also get to work with they trainers and a physiologist and chiropractor. I would say that if you don’t believe in working out that this is not the program for you. They have a lot of focus in that area. You also get a psychiatrist and medication management as an option. The cost was all inclusive which was a surprise. The other programs I toured “offered” a lot but it was all an added expense. That’s not the case at Method.

    Overall, the program was awesome. I really appreciated the process and it worked for me. I definitely think that comparatively, they are probably the best option in LA but I didn’t go anywhere else so I really don’t know. I do know that there were other people who were in the program with me that had been to other programs and they said Method was the best they had been to, so that’s something. I’m glad I found them first…
