Residential Addiction Treatment Center Los Angeles Offers A Day Rich In Restorative Activities

Whether you come to Iris Healing Treatment seeking treatment for yourself or a loved one, you can be sure that our residential addiction treatment center Los Angeles offers a day rich in restorative and restorative activities. A typical day is structured based on proven addiction recovery methods, incorporating traditional and holistic practices such as yoga and meditation. Our philosphy is rooted in compassion and empathy, and is weaved into each part of the day.

From the time you wake up and enjoy a nutritious breakfast, until the quiet reading time before lights out at 10:30 pm, our experienced addiction recovery staff will guide you through a day of group and individual therapy, healthful meals, holistic practices, as well as 12 Step by the Fire or AA meeting.

Low-Glycemic Diet and Holistic Practices Designed To Aid Addiction Recovery

An important component of addiction treatment is a diet designed to aid the recovery process. Scientific research has shown that sugar, caffeine, and white flour trigger drug and alcohol cravings. These substances affect the same parts of the brain as drugs and alcohol. A low-glycemic diet is especially helpful in restoring proper dopamine levels in individuals fighting addiction. Our residential addiction treatment center in Los Angeles seamlessly incorporates a low-glycemic diet into addiction treatment. It is an excellent way to naturally boost dopamine production and improve your state of well-being. While the diet alone will not cure addiction, when used in collaboration with a well-structured 12-step program, inpatient, and outpatient treatment from a licensed facility such Iris Healing Retreat, it can help you achieve a life free of substance abuse.

Our experienced team is dedicated to teaching each client how to live a healthy, happy and sober life.  On a typical day at Iris Healing Retreat, you may participate in art therapy, yoga, spirituality, meditation and other treatment options customized specifically to support the addiction recovery process. Our program at Iris Healing Retreat recognizes that different treatment options work for different people and we will work with you to discover what works best for you as an individual.

Our mission is to create a better world through empathy and spirituality. We believe that each client is unique in his or her own way and that everyone has a unique path towards recovery. No matter what your needs may be when you come to our Residential Addiction Treatment Center Los Angeles, our empathetic team of skilled and experienced recovery professionals is here to help 24/7.

""We got one of my friends into treatment at Iris & we had a great experience from A-Z. The house is very comfortable & homey, the clinical staff warm & friendly, and most importantly their program was very effective. They took her insurance for payment & she stayed for just over 1 month. If u have a friend in need of help, give these guys a call & u won't be disappointed.""

""I was in pretty bad shape. Bobby and Joe helped me get into the Residential facility ASAP. It is a beautiful house and the curriculum is professional, interesting, and deep. Iris offers a variety of treatments, a kind of "therapy boot camp." I can't recommend this place enough. It is my second facility and my favorite. Other people there said it is a cut well above, also. Please do yourself a favor and check it out.""

"Words simply can't fully express my gratitude and thanks for the Iris team. The CEO and Clinical Director have built an amazing program that not only addresses the substance dependency; but in addition, treats and heals the entire person...physically, emotionally, and spiritually. In many ways, I feel like they have set me on a journey to learn who I really am and given me my life back...which is a gift I will always treasure. The intimate size of the facility was crucial to my experience. I never felt overlooked, and there was always a staff member available to me if I needed assistance, a listening ear, or encouragement during my time there. The therapists and staff provided comfort, kindness, and support...and made me feel as though I was in a safe environment where I could fully focus on my healing. I'm so thankful I began my recovery journey at Iris, and I will be eternally grateful for this incredible program and team. "

"Iris Healing was one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I have been to 5 other treatment centers and it just did not stick. Iris properly diagnosed me, got me on the right medication, and gave me the tools and encouragement to stay sober. They have helped me in every aspect of my life and I am extremely grateful! I can now get back to my regular life without the fear of addiction! Thank you!!"
