About Us

Authentic Help for Addiction Recovery

Since 2006, Authentic Recovery Center has been providing individuals a chance to free themselves from addiction and move into the next stage of their lives. A Joint Commission-accredited treatment program located in West Los Angeles, ARC offers effective, evidence-based treatment for substance use and co-occurring disorders, like anxiety and depression, in our beautiful, home-like treatment centers.

Bridging the gap between clinical excellence and access to care, ARC treatment centers are located in quiet neighborhoods where qualified, diverse staff from top hospitals, universities and healthcare institutions bring hope to those who need it most. Our residential treatment facilities provide housing for several patients at a time. Private rooms are available upon request. Once discharged, many graduates stay connected to ARC, attending support groups and alumni events.

Help for Co-Occurring Disorders

Many people seeking help at ARC have already gone to treatment before or have tried to stop drinking or using on their own. Often, the reason they hit a roadblock is because their core concerns are not fully addressed. As a trauma-informed, co-occurring disorder program, we address all underlying issues that may contribute to your substance use in treatment, including anxiety, depression and trauma. Once such issues are pinpointed, we work on healthy ways to tackle them so that you can continue to grow and find success.

Compassionate Staff Who Care

Our treatment center is small, but our clinical team is powerful — and they lead by example. The vast majority of our highly trained staff are in recovery, serving as a bridge of understanding and trust in the therapeutic relationship. Our clinical team is made up of psychiatrists specializing in addiction, therapists, certified sex addiction therapists (CSATs) and certified case managers. Our team works collaboratively to keep patients engaged in the process — attending individual sessions, 12-step meetings and weekly outings — and ensuring that loved ones and referring providers receive regular updates.
