Sovereign Health of Los Angeles
Sovereign Health offers a treatment center in Los Angeles, California, that serves female and male adults who are 18 years of age or older. Our Los Angeles facility offers mental health help as well as substance abuse and dual diagnosis treatment programs. This location also offers a specialized trauma track, in addition to a nonmedical detox level of care, residential treatment, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient care.
Centrally located in Los Angeles County within close proximity to Interstate 405 and State Route 90, this facility is located in the Western region of a large metropolitan center in close proximity to a myriad of other treatment centers, suburban hospitals and various sober living facilities. This proximity benefits our patients by providing a durable support system and ensuring seamless transfers between facilities. Local hospitals help our patients in need of medical intervention, and local sober living houses provide excellent options for continuing care once treatment has been completed.
Sovereign Health of Los Angeles patients stay at one of eight residencies that accommodate up to 74 individuals, with separate living quarters for men and women. The average length of stay is 30 to 90 days.
Levels of care
Detoxification is the first step in the process and is used to rid the drug from the body. Sovereign Health of Los Angeles offers nonmedical detox, a natural detox process that does not use pharmaceutical medications but instead uses vitamins and minerals to alleviate the withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal effects are the most painful part of detoxification and, depending on the addicted substance, detox treatment can take a few days.
Our residential treatment center (RTC) level of care is designed for patients who are not capable of living independently and who require around-the-clock in-house care. It is similar to hospitalization for medical patients who cannot be treated on an outpatient basis.
Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) is a combination between inpatient and outpatient care and can be used to treat patients who do not require around-the-clock monitoring but who still need more care than what is provided in an outpatient level of care.
Our intensive outpatient program (IOP) is the least intense treatment level and allows patients to be treated on an outpatient basis. It is similar to treatment offered for a chronic medical disease by a primary care physician on a checkup basis.
Specialized trauma track
Experiencing a traumatic event, whether recently or in the distant past, can result in severe mental and emotional long-term effects. Physical, sexual, emotional and mental trauma can cause severe anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and substance use disorders. Sovereign Health of Los Angeles offers a specialized trauma track to help with the effects of trauma. Cognitive behavioral therapy, process group therapy, art and music therapy and stress and anger groups are designed to help heal those individuals who are experiencing debilitating effects from trauma.
Rock to Recovery
Rock to Recovery, a nonprofit organization headquartered in Huntington Beach, California, has partnered with Sovereign Health to offer patients a creative way to express their emotions through music. Music therapy allows individuals to uncover and connect with deep feelings and emotions that may otherwise never be acknowledged or expressed. Music is a universal language that everyone can relate to in some way. Music therapy is used as a therapeutic technique to help patients manage their stress, find new ways to express their feelings and learn techniques that serve to enhance memory function. Music can be used as a healthy outlet to express unhealthy feelings and emotions.

In addition, a mandatory 12-step program meets four times per week, and gym workouts are required five times per week as part of a holistic treatment program that establishes healthy lifestyle habits.
