Areas of Specialization
Client & Family Support Groups
Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
My daughter needed to go to treatment and only had the clothes on her back. CareForward took care of everything for her, they went above anything we could have hoped for. All the panic that you go through as a parent… they treated my daughter like I would, like she was a member of their family. It was amazing.” Read more at: http://care-forward.com/beverly-hills-ca-rehab-treatment-success-stories/
I am throughly enjoying the person I have become & understand I still have a lot of work to do to improve myself & maintain the standards I have set for myself to be a good person, husband & father. I take pride in myself & my sobriety today thanks to all of you at CareForward! I also want to let you know I appreciate that you guys have kept your eye on me as well with the check-ins!

Rehabs.com Editorial Review
ABOUT CAREFORWARD HEALTH
Located in the famously upscale community of Beverly Hills, Calif., CareForward Health is a luxury treatment center that provides outpatient treatment for adults struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. Offerings include standard outpatient (OP), intensive outpatient (IOP), and partial hospitalization (PHP). Sober living accommodations are available through a partnering organization. Detox is not offered on-site, but staff can arrange for clients to access appropriate treatment at a nearby facility.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Most clients remain in treatment for a minimum of 30 days. During this time, they are provided with an individualized treatment plan that includes one-on-one counseling, group therapy, family therapy, and enrichment opportunities, like trips to the local museum. Staff utilize a variety of treatment modalities, including dialectical behavior therapy, art therapy, and improvisation. Specialized process groups cover topics like self-care, grief and loss, relapse prevention, and codependency, and others cater to members of the LGBT community.
Partial Hospitalization is the most structured and time-intensive treatment option, as it requires clients to attend sessions all day. Intensive outpatient and standard outpatient treatment, which may be used as step-down options, are partial-day programs that allow for more flexibility.
According to its website, CareForward Health employs a qualified team of addiction specialists.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Through partnerships with sober living homes, clients have the option to stay in upscale living facilities, which are monitored by an on-site supervisory staff. The facilities can accommodate up to 70 clients in total. Residents are provided with daily catered lunches and dinners. Some homes are equipped with swimming pools and scenic views, and clients have access to fitness facilities and transportation.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
When asked how likely they were to recommend the facility to others, the two alumni polled by Rehabs.com each provided a five- out of five-star rating. “This facility truly focuses on the client, helping them make informed choices about their recovery, helping them learn and promote their strengths,” J.B. told Rehabs.com. Both alumni provided four- and five-star ratings in most evaluated categories, including the program’s treatment effectiveness, exercise and leisure options, counseling options, and affordability. “Family Atmosphere, and Staff that truly cares. Highly effective ans intense clinical track,” Hillary wrote in her favorable review.
CareForward Health also fared well on Google Reviews, earning an overall rating of 4.7 out of five stars, based on feedback from 13 individuals. (Note that not all reviewers identified themselves as alumni.) Multiple reviewers commented on the strength of the treatment team. “The employees are very kind, compassionate, caring yet professional… Employees know you by your name and you get individualized attention & acknowledgement,” Lillian wrote.
Despite the praise for this facility, one Google user provided a one-star review and cited issues including overcrowding and questionable billing practices. “They urine tested people 2-3 times a week for no reason at all. just to charge insurance companies. 80-90 people packed in about 1000 square feet building monday through friday,” they wrote.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
S.R., the one family member polled by Rehabs.com, noted that she would strongly recommend the facility to others. She gave the program’s treatment effectiveness five stars and described the staff as “loving” and “dedicated to its clients and their well being.” However, she indicated that the facility was understaffed.
WHAT STAFF SAY
The four staff members surveyed by Rehabs.com, when asked how likely they were to recommend the facility, provided an average rating of five stars. “CareForwards counseling and therapy is second to none,” B.T.O. told Rehabs.com. Staff also provided five-star ratings for the staff’s level of training and experience and the facility’s affordability. “Careforward Health is an incredible strengths based program ran by a group of people who truly care about every single client,” Crystal wrote.
The center’s holistic offerings and counseling options received slightly lower ratings of 3.25 and 3.75 stars, respectively. “Could use more group offerings such as yoga, massage, music therapy, etc,” Christine wrote in her otherwise positive review.
On average, one month of treatment at CareForward Health costs $20,000. The facility accepts a range of private insurance plans, including Aetna, Cigna, and United Healthcare. Private pay options and financing through Prosper HealthCare Lending are also available.
