Roots Through Recovery is an outpatient treatment center in uptown Long Beach, California’s Bixby Knolls community. While it is a standalone outpatient facility, it can ensure that men and women struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders receive the full continuum of care though local, ethical and client-centered detox and residential programs. Roots Through Recovery’s targeted services include a Day Treatment/Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and basic outpatient care.
Roots Through Recovery promotes abstinence with all clients but acknowledges there is no singular path to recovery. It encourages everyone to find a recovery community support group that fits their personal and spiritual needs and attend meetings regularly, whether it’s 12-step, SMART Recovery, Celebrate Recovery or Refuge Recovery. Roots Through Recovery is above all a co-occurring program with a heavy emphasis on assessment and treatment of trauma, through the use of evidence-based grounding and body-centered approaches.
Treatment and Staff
Treatment at Roots Through Recovery begins with an initial assessment and evaluation so an individualized treatment plan can be developed. The program is ideally 90 days but there is also an intensive six-week program that includes two weeks of day treatment and four weeks of IOP, five days a week.
The Day Treatment/PHP is designed for clients participating in the outpatient detox or coming out of inpatient rehab and are ready to live at home or in sober living but still need structured care. The program runs Mondays through Fridays for six hours a day and includes group and individual therapy. After about two weeks, clients usually step down to the IOP level. This consists of three group sessions a week for three hours each, Monday through Fridays, offered in the days and evenings to accommodate work, school or family commitments. After six weeks of IOP, clients usually transition to the basic outpatient level of care. This provides a personalized combination of both one-on-one and group therapy for up to three hours a week.
All programs employ a combo of holistic and evidence-based practices like CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Somatic Experiencing, yoga, mindfulness and meditation. There are also specialized sessions geared towards LGBT clients and, as previously mentioned, those with a dual diagnosis and those requiring trauma-informed care. Groups never have more than eight clients to create an atmosphere conducive to intimacy and healing. Psychoeducation, relapse prevention and family therapy are also a big part of treatment. Additionally, a strong case management component is wrapped into the care model in order to ensure long term success.
The clinical staff consists of Medical Director Dr. Grace Kwon, an osteopath and psychiatrist who recently completed her fellowship in Addiction Psychiatry at Yale University; Clinical Director Monica Martocci, who has over 20 years of experience in the field of addiction; and Master’s-level MFTs. Clinicians are trained and certified in Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, DBT and other trauma-focused approaches. Outside group facilitators are brought in to provide additional perspectives and specialized programming, including yoga instructors, nutritionists, psychodrama and specialists and art therapists. The Board of Directors includes a team recovery advocates passionate about bringing an innovative addiction treatment program to the Long Beach community.
Housing at different levels and price points is available through community partnerships with sober livings in Long Beach, northern Orange County and the South Bay. Transportation between housing and treatment is provided.
Roots Through Recovery also offers court-ordered substance abuse treatment and help for those with eating disorders. The organization is in the process of developing an alumni support network from graduates of their programs.
Roots Through Recovery is a unique, holistic option for individualized outpatient treatment that provides substantial dual diagnosis support and trauma-informed care. With upscale sober living partnerships and a strong emphasis on developing coping skills, Roots Through Recovery provides an outstanding, well-rounded approach to addiction recovery in Long Beach.
