Rena B Recovery Center Overview

Rena B Recovery Center is a facility that provides addiction treatment to individuals, 18 years and older, suffering from substance abuse issues. Located in Los Angeles, California and previously under the Marylind Recovery Center umbrella, the facility which is now under the Social Model Recovery center offers long-term residential treatment to individuals suffering from drug and alcohol abuse.
With a program rooted in 12-step treatment modalities, the facility’s treatment structure includes both individual and group therapy daily which includes both Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous meetings, that takes place on-site. Other meetings including CMA and CA meetings take place on-site as well. Clients are required to attend all meetings on-site until after 60 days, then clients are allowed to attend other meetings off-site. The program offers services such as educational classes that discuss and treat topics such as anger management, life skills, independent living, and sober living. All treatment offered are primarily based on 12-step modalities and talk therapy. After completing 3 months or 90 days in treatment, topics such as job preparedness and important skills for reintegrating into the community begin to be addressed. Also at this time, clients can take day and weekend passes to go out and visit loved ones but this is allowed only when approved by appropriate staff.
Rena B Recovery Center offers a staff of team of qualified alcohol and drug counselors who are certified through the CAARR (California Association of Addiction Recovery Resources). Staff without that certification are working towards completing the coursework for it. The facility at this time lacks medical components in its treatment approach and plans. Clients suffering from more severe symptoms or seeking acute psychiatric care might not find the facility to be a good choice, as it caters more towards clients with mild dual diagnosis.
