Alcoholism and drug addiction is considered by many to be the nation's number one health crisis. These diseases are the reason for up to 40% of hospital admissions. Tragedies resulting from alcohol and drug abuse make it a leading cause of death for young adults age 18 to 24. Alcohol and drug abuse also affect one out of three failed marriages and continue to take a toll on the lives of hundreds of thousands of individuals each year. Alcohol intervention and drug intervention services have changed the lives of many and the The Gooden Center is proud to have helped in the process.
Bishop Gooden Home, a drug rehab in Pasadena, California, was established in 1962 by five members of Alcoholics Anonymous and Bishop Robert Gooden (Episcopal) to help those who wanted out of the debilitating cycle of addiction. Since that time, an entire army of Los Angeles drug treatment centers has sprung up to help arrest the disease. Through all of the changes in the treatment field, The Gooden Pasadena Rehab Center has remained a haven of quality care.
The Gooden Center is an affordable men's addiction treatment center for alcohol and drug abuse located in Pasadena, California. In 2006, Bishop Gooden Home changed its name to The Gooden Center to reflect the expansion of the residential treatment center, program, and facilities. The Gooden Center provides four distinct levels of care: Primary Residential Treatment, Day and Intensive Outpatient Treatment and After Care. As a nonprofit corporation, The Gooden Center's 20-member Board of Directors provides oversight of the treatment program and business operations.
