WHY CHOOSE NORTHSTAR DETOX AND REHAB CENTER
1. PHYSICIAN OWNED AND OPERATED
NorthStar is one of a few facilities throughout the Country that is owned and operated by a licensed Medical Doctor. As a facility owned and operated by a physician, we must meet the standards of care and patient safety achieved by other licensed physicians in other medical fields.
2. EVIDENCE BASED TREATMENT
Substance Use Disorder (SUD), as with other physical and mental ailments, must be treated with medically proven modalities and methodologies that are based on extensive research. Evidence based treatment is a pillar of NorthStar’s overall treatment plan.
3. PATIENT CENTERED TREATMENT
Each individual is unique and their treatment of SUD must be paired appropriately to the unique set of circumstances of that individual. At NorthStar we evaluate each one of our clients to determine the appropriate treatment program for the individual client.
4. PROVIDE AN INTEGRATIVE TEAM APPROACH
It takes a village to raise a child and it takes a qualified team of individuals and professionals to treat Substance Use Disorder. NorthStar brings together the highest qualified and best trained Physicians, Clinicians and Individuals to provide the necessary care to our clients.
5. CLINICAL STAFF FULLY LICENSED AND TRAINED
At NorthStar we ensure that all clinical staff are fully licensed and professionally trained by a Medical Doctor, ensuring that all staff are trained to provide the highest quality of care and have a deep understanding of procedures to insure patient safety.
6. POST DISCHARGE SUPPORT AND FOLLOW-UP
Most facilities provide treatment only to the date of discharge, without much further follow-up post treatment. However, research indicates that post discharge follow-up and guidance is critical to long term Sobriety. At NorthStar we devote a significant amount of resources towards such an endeavor. We seek to be there for our clients to guide them through their Recovery Journey.
7. DUAL DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT
Many individuals suffering from SUD have been found to have underlying mental illnesses which drives an individual to self-medicate with substance use. In most cases the patient’s underlying mental illness goes undiagnosed and untreated and self-medication eventually becomes Substance Use Disorder. In some cases, a client’s SUD can exacerbate or give rise to other mental illnesses. At NorthStar we start with a full evaluation of the patient’s mental health and diagnose and treat those clients who have an underlying mental illness as part of their treatment for SUD.
8. MEDICATION ASSISTED TREATMENT
Many clients who are currently on Medication Assisted Treatment for Opioid related SUD prefer to become freed from the constraints of such medications and achieve full sobriety. NorthStar is one of few facilities which admit such clients and provide the treatment to achieve full Sobriety.
9. TOP QUALITY FACILITY AND PROGRAM AT AFFORDABLE RATES
Our facility is located in one of Los Angeles’ most prominent neighborhoods; Our 4,500 square foot Home is built and designed with exceptional beauty, lush landscaping, pool, gym, screening room and other amenities, to provide our clients with a resort style experience that is comfortable, clean, pleasant and conducive to SUD treatment.
10. ACCEPTANCE OF INSURANCE
High Quality Treatment should not be limited to those who can afford to pay out of pocket for the cost of treatment. Therefore, NorthStar accepts most HMO and all PPO health insurances.
