Our mission is to offer ethical, abstinence- based treatment in a healthy environment that fosters a community of recovery, healing and change. To those suffering from substance dependence. We will provide an opportunity to develop a strong foundation in recovery from which they can build a life free from alcohol and drugs. We know that the best outcome for successful, long-term sobriety depends on the quality of recovery established during the first phase of the recovery process.

Your Destination for Recovery.
When Greg and Joelene first met 7 years ago, they instantly clicked. As the respective CEO and Clinical Director of a highly regarded Los Angeles based treatment center, they used their shared vision to build an engaging, supportive, and confidential environment for patients to heal and change. A key part of Greg and Joelene’s success was their deliberate approach to treatment. Their holistic philosophy of abstinence-based, 12-step recovery focused on the mind, body, and spirit. They provided a combination of education, psychiatric services, individual, group, and family oriented therapeutic strategies, exercise, and ongoing access to a loving community of peers in order to give clients the foundation for long-term success in sobriety.
Grace Recovery is the collaboration of 39 years of combined treatment experience. Greg and Joelene are ethical, determined, and hold integrity above all else. They recognize that since each patient brings his or her own unique experiences to the table, individualized and customized plans are crucial for long term recovery. Greg and Joelene have seen the benefits of creating a strong treatment community of support and understanding. They have learned that struggles, heartache, and pain are sometimes necessary pebbles in the flowing stream of life. They also insist that life in sobriety must be fun. Greg and Joelene have poured their hearts into the creation of a program that will introduce people to a new way of life, full of the wonder and grace they all deserve.
Our treatment philosophy incorporates a variety of clinical components thoughtfully combined to create a personalized and effective treatment program designed to meet the continuing needs during the first years of recovery.
Grace Recovery is based on 3 tenets; Treatment, Recovery, and Community. Each phase represents opportunities for residents to develop life skills and useful tools to obtain and maintain long term sustainable recovery.
