Due to current events we are offering telehealth options. Call today to learn more (310) 881-9151

At Nexus Recovery Services we strongly believe that family involvement, whether it be family of origin or of choice, is vital to a client’s recovery process.

This is why, unlike other adult outpatient substance abuse and mental health treatment programs, we also offer weekly family coaching and a Family Intensive Workshop to all clients that enter our program. It is also why we have chosen to sponsor Clearly Clinical‘s new, free educational podcast episode for professionals, “Narcissist: The Skilled Abuser Part II. How Narcissistic Personalities Affect Family Dynamics.” A substance use disorder can be diagnosed in approximately 50% of patients suffering from a personality disorder, making narcissism a topic we all need to understand in relation to substance abuse and the family system.

Men’s Program

This treatment addresses male-specific issues and focuses on relationship building because of the lack of healthy and supportive peer relationships that many newly sober men.

"I have great respect for Nexus Recovery and its associated leadership. I believe in their mission to provide ethical treatment and attention to clinical detail. I have seen many lives come in the door broken and exit with purpose, I am one of them."

Matthew R.

"If you are like me, you have been tirelessly researching online or calling various sober living facilities - feeling heartbroken, lost, desperate, and confused - all while facing a decision which would directly impact the livelihood of a loved one. No pressure, right? My husband had just completed rehab outside of Los Angeles and needed a [program] with good and honest people to help him adjust back to “real life"...The real (and scary) answer is these places are hard to come by. Now to get to why I NEEDED to write this review. Nexus. 5 letters that make up a word I want to shout from the rooftops with such profound gratitude... Nexus gave my husband a community bringing people into our lives which have changed it for the better. Nexus gave my husband counseling which has opened him up to realize his true potential without the need of drugs or alcohol – he is just grateful to be walking in his shoes sober."
