Treatment Insights

Action Family Counseling is unique in that we have IN-NETWORK insurance contracts with nearly all major health plans. Often times Action’s treatment prices are covered at up to 80-100% by individual’s health plans. Out-of Network rehabs are mostly more expensive than treatment at In-Network rehab centers like Action. Our pricing structure is set up to be very competitive and to minimize the financial burden of families in need of treatment & rehabilitation for a loved ones’ alcohol and other drug usage. Please read on to learn more. We have a team of substance abuse experts on standby awaiting your call for help should you need to reach out anytime. Action Family Counseling employs a multidisciplinary approach to chemical dependency treatment, providing residential care, intensive outpatient services, and partial hospitalization to those struggling with addiction in Southern California. Action Family Counseling provides daily addiction education groups focusing on themes such as relapse prevention, addiction as a disease, personal relationship development, peer problem solving, behavioral triggers, and 12-Step principles. In addition to group work, clients are encouraged to attend individual counseling sessions to develop skills for independent living, personal growth, stress management, decision making, communication, and more. Loved ones are encouraged to assume an active role in individuals’ recovery by participating in family therapy sessions.

Areas of Focus
Residential Treatment

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.

Outpatient

Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.
