Before seeking help, it is normal to feel isolated, disconnected, fragile, and detached. Since we know how daunting a process getting help can be, we ease clients safely and gently into the treatment process through stabilization. During the first phase, each client receives a thorough assessment to determine the proper program placement in order to provide them with community, motivation, encouragement, and mental clarity.
Phase 1 continues with the formation of an individualized treatment plan to meet each client’s unique and specific needs. A multidisciplinary, integrated approach is employed using several treatment modalities. Some examples of such plans include; short and long-term goal setting, educational interventions, awareness building, sponsorship, and community support.
Phase 2 is Muse’s evidence-based treatment program that encourages each client to express his or her own truth and authenticity. This phase of the program supports a major behavioral shift in which the client can experience rapid growth, often taking the form of developing healthy interpersonal relationships, achieving short-term goals, sustaining self-regulation and self- direction.
In Phase 3, our aftercare program offers a support mechanism that fosters continued growth, and allows for both positive and negative real life experiences to occur. We use previous treatment plans as well as day to day client input to create a dynamic, constantly evolving plan for aftercare that allows each individual to remain safe, while engaging in his or her own recovery.
In Phase 4, our clients realize their interests and goals, and identify the behaviors required to accomplish those goals. Many of our clients pursue vocational and/or educational goals while maintaining active enrollment in our Alumni and Aftercare programs. Our history of success is a testament to the START program as an effective recovery paradigm.
We’re grateful they’re grateful.
If you are looking for a place to really try to change your life, Muse is a great place! The staff were all so in tune with what I was going through. If I ever had a problem, or was feeling like using, I could go to them and they'd talk to me. It didn’t matter what time of the day or night it was. I had never had people who cared about me so much that weren’t family. I still stay in touch with people I went through the house with, we go to meetings and go surfing and other things I never did when I was loaded. It’s a great life, and I really never thought I would be so happy.
I’ve been through 5 other treatment programs and was pretty sure none of them would ever work. I decided to give it one more try before just resigning to being a junky the rest of my life. I found Muse and I have to say I am pretty surprised. I have over 8 months clean and it’s more time than I’ve had the last 11 years. All the groups were great, and the neuro-feedback was something I haven’t seen anywhere else. I still see my therapist and I am so happy. I am very grateful to Muse!
I never wanted to go to treatment. I always thought I could quit on my own. I tried myself dozens of times but always went back. I could stay quit for a day or two but never more. I didn’t know what to do. I thought I would die and never thought I could live without my drug. When I finally realized that I needed some help I was terrified. The staff at Muse really knew what I was going through. They had been through it themselves and showed me the way. I have never been sober this long in my life, and if I keep doing what I’m doing, what they taught me, I think I’ll stay sober.
I stayed at Muse Sober Living for two months. When I arrived I was very emotionally and spiritually sick. My drug and alcohol dependence nearly took my life on several occasions. The structure of being surrounded by others in recovery, having chores, going to meetings and never knowing when I would get tested helped me to stay sober long enough to let the program work me.Today I am grateful to say I am clean and sober for just under a year now. My life today, inside and out, is 180 degrees away in the right direction.
Additional Treatment Options
While most addiction treatment centers only offer generic neurofeedback, Muse uses brain mapping to determine the most effective possible way to treat our clients. Our neural rehabilitation program offers an array of diverse techniques, ranging from computerized cognitive training, to biofeedback and neurofeedback (EEG biofeedback). By engaging in these exercises, our clients develop a more neurologically integrated and developed sense of self, resulting in an increased ability to maintain sobriety and recovery.
- Outpatient Program
Ranging from Intensive Day Patient to Evening Outpatient programming, we provide continued support for the client to demonstrate an understanding and commitment to recovery. Muse Intensive Outpatient Rehab Center is a community dedicated to safety, healing and recovery. Muse Outpatient Rehab is able to treat substance abuse and mental health disorders and help clients maintain long-term recovery through our three-pronged, interdisciplinary approach. Therapy, twelve-step integration, and neuro-rehabilitation, are the three key components to the Muse philosophy of treatment. This methodology enables clients to succeed in treatment and thrive in the world beyond treatment.
- Sober Living
Muse Sober Living is highly recommended for clients who successfully complete residential treatment or extended care. Sober living is loosely structured and includes accountability through house meetings, required 12-step meetings, and 24-hour on-site house managers. Clients residing at our sober living homes are encouraged to use our professional center for educational and job search assistance. We believe that anyone who is willing to follow a simple daily recovery plan has the ability to change his or her life regardless of how much damage and destruction has been caused by substance abuse or other mental health disorders. Our Los Angeles Sober Living members work diligently each and every day to provide a safe, supportive environment so our residents can build a solid foundation towards achieving a life of recovery.
