$ Paying for Treatment
The BLVD philosophy emphasizes mindfulness, meditation, trauma work, giving back, creative self expression, community, and the importance of laying solid groundwork for a soulful and sustainable recovery. The approach to addiction is tri-fold, offering treatment that focuses on the mind, body and spirit. Through comprehensive outpatient services for alcohol and drug addiction, BLVD helps clients change their negative self perceptions and beliefs. Treatment is based on AA’s 12-Steps of recovery, and is administered in conjunction with group and individual therapy sessions.

Reviews at a Glance
- Medical Detoxification
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
- Holistic Therapy
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.

Alexia Rigos, LMFT - Therapist
Volunteering and then interning at various schools, Alexia’s work would take her into addiction counseling. For the next three years she worked at a treatment center specializing in treating clients with addiction, HIV, and co-occurring disorders. She also volunteered regularly at a Hollywood non-profit organization where she and her brother would serve food to inner city underprivileged youth while providing them a safe place to gather and socialize. Now, as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Alexia believes that it was the love and support of her own family that drove her passion to want to help others in need.
