The View is a luxury detox and stabilization facility located in the upscale Los Angeles neighborhood of Brentwood in Southern California. Treatment is available to those struggling with a variety of addictions including alcohol, opiates, cocaine and benzodiazepines utilizing Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) in addition to group and individual therapy and stress reduction practices. The 30 to 60 day stabilization treatment programs are individualized for each client’s specific needs and offers a holistic approach.
Accommodations and Food
The beautiful and private Brentwood home where clients reside during treatment offers six beds and a variety of luxurious amenities. The bedrooms are double occupancy with beds that are dressed in high threadcount sheets, along with a dresser and closet space. There is a shared game room with a pool table, spacious living room with plush couches and a mounted flat screen TV with cable, and spa like bathrooms.
Clients eat all their meals in the formal dining room and enjoy gourmet creations by the on-site executive chef. To top it all off, the facility offers breathtaking views of the LA landscape, which can be enjoyed from the back patio, and a pool with hot tub for relaxation.
Treatment and Staff
Unlike other inpatient treatment facilities, The View takes times to know its clients after admission. The result is a collaborative treatment experience with the clients input being an integral part of their programming as opposed to having a clinician call all the shots.
The initial detox step can last anywhere from three to 10 days, depending on the substance the client was using, and from there an extended stabilization program is implemented. This facility doesn’t offer a one-size-fits-all approach with their clients and as each individual progresses through treatment the programs become more flexible to suit them accordingly.
A day can include some group therapy that covers relapse prevention and coping skills. If desired there are also elements of the 12 steps included. For the most part clients stay in the residence during the stabilization phase and begin to work on an aftercare plan with their counselors.
Another important part of treatment through The View is the emphasis on family involvement, and though it’s certainly not required, loved ones are definitely encouraged to take part in treatment and be an additional source of support and communication with staff.
The View’s small staff matches the intimate setting of the facility. The five or so staff members are LMFT, LPC and LPN.
Clients can enjoy bonus massages and instructor-led yoga on site a few times a week.
The View focuses on each client’s comfort while undergoing this stressful first step and aims to provide an upscale treatment experience to go along with the Brentwood Hills environment. Though the price certainly reflects the extras that are provided, if one can afford it, this is an excellent way to begin a life of recovery.
