Treatment for Addiction in Los Angeles

Addiction and substance use disorder does not discriminate between race, class, age, or gender – it is prevalent among all walks of life. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), nearly 20 million Americans over age 12 suffered from an addiction and substance abuse disorder in 2017. Roughly 74 percent of those adults were diagnosed with an alcohol use disorder, and 38 percent were addicted to illicit drugs. Those numbers are continuing to rise, and substance abuse disorders are claiming the lives of thousands each year.

At Launch Centers, our mission is to help young people with addiction and substance abuse disorders get sober, reclaim their lives, and live up to their fullest potential. We welcome clients facing both mental health and substance abuse disorders, and we offer a variety of outpatient and day programs.

Here are some of the addictions we treat.

Benzodiazepine Addiction

Benzodiazepines, such as Xanax or Valium, are a type of sedative drug that affects the nervous system. They are commonly prescribed to people who have depression, anxiety, chronic pain, insomnia, or seizures. Benzodiazepines can also help ease symptoms in people who are detoxing from alcohol.

Adderall Addiction

Legal stimulants, like Adderall or Ritalin, are used to treat attention deficit disorders, and these can also become addictive if they’re not taken as prescribed.

Heroin Addiction

Heroin is classified as an opioid, which is a type of drug prescribed to people with chronic pain. It’s an extremely addictive drug that floods the brain with feel-good chemicals, like dopamine and endorphins. It’s so addictive that one research study reported that one in four people who try heroin for the first time develop a dependency.


Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is one of the biggest problems in the United States, though it’s often overshadowed by the opioid crisis. According to the CDC, more than 88,000 people die from alcohol-related deaths each year in the United States.

Opioid Addiction

Opioids are powerful, addictive medications that have dire consequences for those who misuse the drugs and become addicted. Although opioids are a difficult addiction to kick, it’s not impossible, and there is hope for addicts as well as their loved ones.

Marijuana Abuse

With more and more states legalizing recreational and medical marijuana use, the public faces a great deal of uncertainty surrounding the substance. Is marijuana as safe as proponents claim, or as harmful as opponents indicate? As with just about everything in life, the answers aren’t as cut and dry as one might prefer.

Crack/Cocaine Addiction

A 2006 report from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health discovered that over 35 million Americans over age 12 have used cocaine. Similarly, about 8.6 million Americans of the same age have reported using crack.

Sleeping Pill Addiction

Because sleeping pills are a legal prescription, many people are misinformed about the risks of taking the pills. A lot of insomnia patients may think that a legal prescription like sleeping pills can’t be addictive, but that’s not true.

    This place changed my life! I’ve had good laughs, good cries, shared a lot of heart to heart moments and grew a loving bond with everyone at Launch Centers. I will always be grateful! I really do miss it time to time. I highly recommend Launch Centers!

  • Jenna S.

    Launch changed our lives. Our family had been battling for years to breakthrough to our brother. No amount of rehab or detox had made a difference. He was listless, lifeless and helpless. We feared for his life everyday. The spirit of, repetition in, core values, appreciation of life and dignity and respect that we found through Launch are unparalleled. I can say with full confidence that we never would have seen my “real” brother again if not for this truly magical combination. We were and still are especially grateful for his over-the-top therapist. Her commitment to his privacy and success coupled with her unwavering contact with any and all of us is what bridged our 3,000 mile separation from him.
