Our "client-centered" care philosophy sets us apart from other Southern California treatment programs. "Program-centered" treatment is when the client must conform to the program (duration, structure, set treatment plan) and while it works for many clients, this approach inhibits growth and promotes conformity with which many individuals are uncomfortable. With "client-centered" care, however, each person moves through treatment at his own pace. As with any disease, one treatment does not work for everyone.
The needs of our clients drive the focus of our Pasadena rehab center and our organization. The Gooden Center, through its affiliates, also provides drug detox and alcoholism treatment. Clients collaborate with their counselors and peers to develop individualized goals, which become the blueprint for their care here and beyond. Being a co-architect in his own recovery helps the client become more actively involved in the successful building of his sober foundation and our treatment follow up monitoring has also given many clients strength and hope after treatment.
When you or your loved one is assessed as part of the intake procedure, our clinical staff will recommend an affordable substance abuse treatment option that is most appropriate. When entering drug rehab cost is often a concern and we work with the patient to find options which make sure that they can afford rehabilitation. We use the guidelines established by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (A.S.A.M.). Based on over 45 years of helping men recover from chemical dependency, we base our California substance abuse treatment program on four goals:
- Insure the client is medically stable including dual diagnosis evaluation and monitoring.
- Equip our clients and families with an understanding of addictive diseases and the tools to prevent relapse.
- Help every client experience the healing that comes from simply being in fellowship with others like himself.
- Successfully address personal obstacles to recovery (eg. difficult family relations, employment) while in treatment.
