Recovery Is A Team Effort
The Gooden Center is a Pasadena rehab center for men seeking recovery for their addictions with drugs or alcohol. The Gooden Center is located in a quiet neighborhood and looks more like a home than a hospital. The environment along with the staff care make patients feel at ease and comfortable during what is probably the most difficult time of their life. The Gooden Center treats their patients like family members and sometimes students rather than a customer. The individualized treatment patients receive is really unique and the amount of genuine support of the staff is unlike any other facility. Treatment gets personal for the medical staff, counselors and even the administrative staff, as everyone at Gooden wants the best for their patients. They are a team and will work together for the success of their new team members.
The families of patients are an important part of the recovery process as they have probably been a critical factor through the addiction and have been the main role in getting their loved one treatment. The Gooden Center incorporates the family into the treatment plan and even includes family members in support meetings and other group counseling. Families of the patient may need just as much support and reassurance to get through this difficult time.
The Gooden Center’s core values include clinical excellence, client centered care, learning, social support, spiritual support, community support and accountability. These cores lay at the foundation of the services provided and Gooden is always working to improve care and really find what works for each individual patient. The goal is lasting sobriety and a complete life change and not just a quick fix of getting clean, getting lectured and getting out. The testimonies of past patients don’t lie, the Gooden Center has changed lives.
