Privacy and Confidentiality!

Really now, you want to fix you problem privately, quietly, and without a bunch of gossip, whispering, or people sabotaging your success. That’s not going to happen if you disappear for 30, 60, or 90 days.

It’s not going to happen if you go to AA which hasn’t been “anonymous” for over 40 years. It isn’t going to happen in residential or outpatient programs where you’re exposed in groups, which is all they offer.

But here? You only work with us and our physician Dr. Norcross – with whom you have a single private appointment we pay for with no paper trail to come back and haunt you.  The biggest “group” would be us and possibly your spouse – or anyone else you might choose to include.

No, you won’t be wasting any time or money in groups with people with whom you have absolutely nothing in common. Groups whose only function is to give programs cheap ways to fill time with meaningless activities.


Every other program is based on groups, not because it works, but because it’s a cheap way to fill time. The only time “group treatment for alcoholism” is going to work for you is if you are AA material and, if you are, well, you don’t need to go to treatment, you need to go to AA.

We, on the other hand, only work with individuals, couples, and, occasionally, families. No wasted time, no breaches of confidentiality, no one else’s baggage and no problems other than alcohol to focus on.

That’s right. It’s about you, your unique circumstances, and your custom designed solutions.

It’s  also about your strengths, interests, abilities, successes, and competence – not some mythological disease, powerlessness, and magic.


Our clients have the highest success rates of any program in the U.S. and Canada. Why? Because we are based on you, the current research, and what we have learned over the past 25 years of working with clients in many different settings and programs.

Your success is mainly a product of a program built around you. And it’s built around creating a life, not avoiding life. You will succeed because you are focusing on doing things, not counting up days of not doing things.

Really – do you want to spend you time collecting experiences or do you want to waste your time adding up the days you didn’t do things?

Remember, most programs are bult on AA and AA only has a 3% long term “success” rate!


Typically, treatment programs run anywhere from $30,000 to $75,000, most of which is spent on filler that has nothing to do with you.

Throw in airfare and hotel and we come in around $10,000 for anyone from across the U.S. or Canada, less if you are local to the Los Angeles area.

Why so much cheaper? The big reason is, NO FILLER! Every hour you spend with us is directly related to you and your situation. We don’t have to charge you for things you don’t want, don’t need, and have no bearing on your success.

Most of our clients report that they have saved the cost of the program in less than a year, many in less that 6 months. That’s an excellent return on investment.

Thank of it this way – should you spend $30,000 for a 30 days program with a 5% success rate, that exposes you as an alcoholic even if you aren’t, substantially reduces your control over your own life, and labels you forever?

Or should you invest $10,000 and a week that allows you to confidentially address a problem with a 70% success rate, no labels, no exposure, and complete control on your part?

Not to mention that you also get a life?

To Summarize:

We offer the most effective and least intrusive alcohol treatment program in the country. We welcome you as a competent individual and we accommodate your need to maintain your responsibilities, privacy, and schedules. We welcome the participation of your spouse or partner if you so desire, and you will have time to maintain your professional and personal obligations. Please bring your cell phone, laptop, and whatever else you need to facilitate maintaining your life and reputation!
