Frequently Asked Questions
We receive a lot of questions about our program, and here are some answers to commonly asked questions. Please don’t hesitate to call us at (818) 451-0748 if you have any further questions!
Q: How long do people usually stay in your program?
A: People usually stay with us for 60-90 days. We think this is good length of time for clients to heal in a safe and supportive environment. Sometimes people worry that this is a long time to be away from their life. However, it is important to take this much needed time to heal and recover.
Q: How many people are in your program?
A: We have capacity for 10-15 clients at a time. There are a number of advantages to having a small program. Having a program of this size allows us to give each individual client the attention that they deserve. It also means that every staff member personally knows each resident.
Q: Where is your program located?
A: We are located just outside of Los Angeles in Woodland Hills. Our program is right near the Santa Monica Mountains, which is a beautiful start your recovery. There is nearby hiking, parks, and plenty of local attractions.
Q: What levels of care do you offer?
A: We have a sober living and outpatient facility. We provide a safe location for people to recover alongside a structured program that offers tools for sobriety. People who come to our program have already been to a detox facility or they have been abstinent from drugs and alcohol before coming. If you are interested in our program but think you might need detox first, we can help you find one.
Q: Can I work while doing your program?
A: Generally we ask people to focus on their recovery while they are doing our intensive outpatient program. However, there we always help people on a case by case basis and work with individuals to create a program that is best for them. Additionally we provide case management to help you find a job, build a resume, and fill out applications in order to plan for the future.
Q: Can I come to your IOP without living in the sober living?
A: Our program is set up so that everyone in the outpatient program stays at our sober living. Additionally, all clients at the sober living go to our IOP program. This way clients heal together and everyone is going through the same program. Having this shared experience creates a sense of comradery and friendship.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: The cost of Comfort Recovery depends on your insurance coverage. You can verify your insurance here.
Q: What if I don’t live in the area?
A: If you don’t live nearby that is no problem. We have people come to our outpatient and sober living from all over the country. Seeing as you will be staying at our sober living home, you don’t need to worry about trying to find a place to live.
Q: Do I have to have a car?
A: We offer transportation to and from our IOP program every day, as well as five recovery meetings per week, doctors appointments, and social service appointments. You do not need to have your own car because we will be able to drive you to all of these places!
Q: What kind of recovery meetings do you take people to?
A: Many people come to Comfort Recovery who are interested in alternatives to Alcoholics Anonymous. We encourage our clients to try different types of recovery programs like specialized 12-step meetings, refuge recovery, or SMART recovery meetings. Of course, we also take people to many different AA meetings. We ask our clients to keep an open mind and try different types of meetings.
Q: What if I don’t like a recovery meeting we go to?
A: That’s alright! We are lucky enough to be located in the Los Angeles area where there are more recovery meetings per week than anywhere else in the world. There are a few thousand meetings per week in LA. This means that if you don’t like one meeting you can try a different one.
