HIV / AIDS
We recognize that substance users may be at considerably higher risk for, or are living with HIV, hepatitis, liver damage or other health challenges. We approach these issues in alcohol and drug treatment from medical and counseling perspectives. Our fully integrated health services, including a full range of HIV services, are available with substance abuse treatment—or as a separate service. For more information on our HIV Services, feel free to call our Reseda facility.

Of course, alcohol and drug treatment programs will vary for individual. However, TTC’s treatment philosophy, which guides our alcohol and drug treatment programs, is in accordance with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) “Principles of Effective Treatment”. This set of principles reinforces the importance of each of these elements:
- Professional comprehensive assessment
- Patient Involvement in treatment planning
- An appropriate schedule of private individual counseling, usually combined with group counseling and education
- Orientation to and involvement in 12-step programs, including the involvement of a sponsor and frequent meeting participation
- A balanced approach to related life challenges, such as employment, money management, physical exercise, opportunities for self-expression and integrity in personal relationships
- A long-range plan for continuous aftercare, alumni and/or 12-step involvement
TTC’s Alumni Association is a fellowship available to anyone who has received treatment from Tarzana Treatment Centers. The Alumni Association meets weekly at each of the three sites to plan social, recreational and fund raising activities for themselves and current clients. The Alumni Association is supported by a staff liaison who advises the alumni’s governing body, assists in the coordination of events and maintains communication between the association and the administration of Tarzana Treatment Center.
Many individuals with chemical dependency also experience complicating problems such as depression, anxiety or other disorders. From the assessment process and throughout alcohol and drug treatment, TTC’s professionals are able to identify and provide treatment for these challenges. In many cases, mental health counseling and pharmaceutical approaches may be considered.
