Treatment Insights

Founded in 1962 by five members of Alcoholics Anonymous and Episcopal Bishop Robert Gooden, the Gooden Center provides men with 12-step-based residential treatment in beautiful Pasadena, California. The residential rehab offers gender-specific care that allows men to feel more comfortable expressing their emotions, and keeps them undistracted from the primary goal of recovery. Day treatment, outpatient services, and sober living options are also available, and alumni may return every week for an aftercare program for as long as they wish.

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.
