USC United Summit Center - John D. Good Recovery Center Philosophy
The John D. Good Recovery Center provides residential treatment for adult men and women facing substance abuse disorder. Treatment options include a 90 day recovery community program, group and individual therapy and 12-step participation. Treatment is peer-driven and community-based and encourages self-reliance, personal growth, and responsibility.
Areas of Specialization
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
