1 Method Review

Los Angeles-based 1 Method Center offers a highly individualized, abstinence-based addiction and co-occurring disorders program. 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. The programs offered by 1 Method include detox, residential treatment and outpatient care with a sober living option.

Accommodations and Food

The 1 Method Center residential facility is a beautiful 5,000 square foot home in the Cheviot Hills neighborhood of West LA. The Mediterranean-style house was once home to a French diplomat and features stunning architecture and beautiful décor. Rooms are all equipped with plasma TVs, both Direct TV and Netflix and wireless Internet access. Each room features an outdoor balcony overlooking a lush, beautifully landscaped yard, heated pool and Jacuzzi.

Nutritious, organic meals are prepared by a personal chef and served three times a day family-style. The menu is developed by a nutritionist and dietary restrictions and most preferences can be accommodated.

Treatment and Staff

Residential treatment at 1 Method is individualized, but the average stay in primary care is 30 days. Clients who need detox are offered the option to undertake that process on-site with gentle, supervised medical detox. The treatment philosophy at 1 Method is abstinence-based, so Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) beyond detox is not provided.

Residents work with a dedicated therapist and 1 Method focuses primarily on individual, rather than group therapy. Therapy utilizes evidence-based practices, such as CBT and DBT. Dual diagnosis support in the form of psychiatric care and medication management is offered for co-occurring disorders. Clients are also encouraged, but not required, to attend frequent AA or NA meetings within the community to build a peer support network. Transportation is provided.

The team includes physicians who supervise detox, as well as a nurse practitioner. There are also psychiatrists, CADCs and MFTs. There is a staff nutritionist, several fitness trainers and a yoga instructor. Somebody is available on-site 24 hours a day.


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 aims to heal mind and body by incorporating cutting-edge neuroscience, breathing techniques and exercise. The curriculum is built around proven methods from the fields of Integrative Biology and Physiology.

There are four treatment packages available at 1 Method. The cost varies depending on whether the client wants a private room and additional holistic treatment beyond the health and fitness program. The top-tier platinum package includes a private room, personal massage therapist, acupuncture and chiropractic care.

Clients who have completed the primary care phase are provided with planning for their continuing care. Options offered by 1 Method include several outpatient tracks and sober living.

In Summary

The program provided by 1 Method is a luxury wellness-oriented experience in a beautiful location. Through a combo of specialized medical and psychiatric care, traditional therapy and cutting edge wellness, this program has it all. For adult clients who are seeking a rehab that focuses on healing the mind and strengthening the body, this is a great choice.
