Oro House is an award-wining inpatient and outpatient treatment center with locations in southern California. Oro House is a winner of Newsweek’s ‘Best Addiction Treatment Centers,’ placing #1 in Los Angeles and Malibu, and is a recipient of the Joint Commission’s prestigious ‘Gold Seal of Approval®.’ We are dedicated to healing those struggling with drug and alcohol addiction as well as underlying mental health issues.
We offer all levels of care at our facilities—including initial crisis intervention, detoxification, residential, outpatient, sober living and and aftercare treatment, and accept most PPO insurance.
Since our establishment in 2010 as Alo House Recovery Centers, we have grown into one of the most successful non-12-step, dual-diagonosis rehab treatment facilities in California, with a documented high rate of success and countless satisfied clients and their families.
Oro House has emerged as a leading voice for reforms in the approach to addiction treatment—courtesy of our pioneering Compassionate Care Model® for mental health and addiction dual diagnosis treatment.
The philosophy at Oro House recovery is rooted in our Compassionate Care Model® of addiction treatment. This is the opposite of the traditional and ineffective ‘behavior modification’ model that treats addiction patients with contempt and coercion, with its strict focus on compliance. As such, the entire team at Oro House Recovery Centers is encouraged and trained to treat every client with dignity, authenticity, and respect. This approach is highlighted in a set of principles that guide our daily activities.
Oro House is a non-judgmental drug and addiction treatment center. We meet every client ‘where they’re at’ and never assume that we know what’s best for them.
It is only through a co-equal dialoge that the best treatment plans are developed. We empower our clients by providing a nurturing, loving, and supportive rehabilitation environment for them to learn what they need to learn to transform their lives and, in the process, the lives of their families.
The idea is to build a closely-knit community that offers a sense of belonging and comfort.
We are All in This Together
The Parallel Process
At Oro House, we promote the ‘Parallel Process’—which is an approach where we practice what we preach by holding ourselves accountable to the same principles we nurture in our clients.
In line with our belief that we are all in this together, Oro House advocates for a community-based program that encompasses everyone—including our staff.
Our leading by example encourages and inspires our clients to challenge their growth and connect to their passions.
A ‘Doing’ Treatment Facility With Proactive and Practical Skills
One of our main ambitions is to to help our clients learn the power of compassion – both to understand ourselves compassionately, but especially others.
Building positive relationships with our loved ones is the central goal. We teach each of our clients to take responsibility for their lives and discover their true being, rather than giving them prepackaged solutions.
We offer effective hands-on guidance and experiential therapeutic activities to discover practical life skills that will help our clients overcome problem areas and lead better lives.
Our addiction treatment approach follows the central tenets of the Compassionate Care Model®. We create an environment that addresses the sense of disconnection and alienation that is so prevelant in our society today, and hinders addicted people from thriving, experience meaning or feeling fulfilled. This is only possible through individualized care that looks at each client’s unique circumstances and underlying issues, their story, instead of simply treating textbook symptoms of addiction or mental health issues.
By appreciating the uniqueness of each client and understanding that there are multiple paths to a sustainable recovery, we are better positioned to thoroughly address the nature of the substance use disorder. And since there is no one-size-fits-all treatment for addiction, we offer a wide range of options and treatment modalities to improve their outcome.
Our treatment programs are a blend of evidence-based practices such as Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioral Therapies, in addition to a wide range of holistic-based therapies, such as Mindfullness and Somatic Experiencing.
The multiple levels of treatment at Oro House are managed by a compassionate and highly qualified team of medical experts and clinical psychologists—who together have a combined experience of over 675 years.
Our team embraces each client as part of the Oro House community and guides them throughout their recovery journey. We empower you to overcome the challenges or trauma in your past, helping you transition to the best version of yourself and learning how your experience can be a tool with which to deepen your compassion and your ability to help others to heal from theirs.
