For the most part, Klean Treatment Centers seems like a pretty fair bargain for those seeking low-end treatment in the Pacific Northwest. The rehab, which is headed by CEO Andrew Spanwick, currently operates facilities in Astoria, Bellevue and Long Beach, Washington, as well as its headquarters in West Hollywood, California. The first two are outpatient only, while Long Beach and West Hollywood both offer residential treatment.
Accommodations and Food
Accommodations and food service are more or less the same across their different centers; there are both private and semi-private rooms (though clients will have no more than one roommate) with queen size beds and peaceful light blue and off-white interior design. West Hollywood’s co-ed inpatient center has 26 beds available for those 18 and up, and offers door-to-door transportation for those who join its programs. Another perk: it’s pet friendly.
Food service at WeHo is catered; the Long Beach location has an on-site kitchen and serves up healthy meals.
Treatment and Staff
Klean inpatient programs last between 30 and 90 days and outpatient programs are 12 weeks; weekly sessions vary by outpatient track and by facility. All of Klean’s centers specialize in both chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders, have on-site detox services and are based on the principles of the 12 steps.
Different methods of recovery include meditation, hypnotherapy, CBT/DBT, nutrition groups, spirituality workshops, yoga, group and individual therapy (although only three of these one-on-one sessions are promised a month—it’ll mostly be group). Educational groups covering basic sober life skills and relapse prevention techniques are also a major part of the approach here. Family therapy sessions are available as well but only on request; likewise, Klean will help arrange interventions for families that need them too, though this generally happens by referral.
Klean Treatment’s various hubs each have a multidisciplinary staff that includes social workers, substance abuse counselors, therapists (all Master’s level or above) and house nurse practitioners. Though it maintains a low staff-to-client ratios, it has received some alumni complaints about disorganization, management issues and a lack of medical personnel. Still, it’s important to remember that Klean is a high profile rehab (CEO Spanswick appears on TV and hosts a radio show with Pat O’Brien) and the better-known a treatment center is, the more likely it is to court complaints.
While Klean is a clinic that seems to put treatment above leisure, it does have on-site gyms at its various locations for residents to blow off steam. There is also a rotating schedule of sober activities every week for those in treatment and an active alumni network that gets together for campus visits, sober events on Sundays, BBQs, meetings and so on.
There aren’t many low-end-to-mid-range rehabs in the LA area and that alone makes Klean unique. Those looking for Southern California (and Washington state) treatment at this price point that emphasizes both therapy and the 12 steps may well find themselves able to get clean here.
