Ventura County, CA based Lake House Recovery Center of Thousand Oaks, an inpatient-residential drug rehab treatment center for addiction & alcoholism, announces an enhanced merging of services that aim to help both, recovering individuals along with the community at large. Jokingly referred to as “The Mandatory Fun Program,” it aims to reintegrate drug addicts and alcoholics early in recovery into the concept of experiencing enjoyment without the use of mind-altering substances.
With the recent Tiger Wood’s sponsored Northwestern Mutual World Challenge Golf Tournament at Thousand Oak’s prestigious Sherwood Country Club, not more than a quarter mile away, Lake House Recovery Center clients were afforded a very special opportunity. Sweetening the scenario was the fact that much of the event’s proceeds go to toward further supporting The Tiger Woods Foundation which, aims to provide impoverished kids with opportunities not otherwise afforded them.
The Sherwood Country Club is set about 20 miles outside of Malibu, California within the Santa Monica Mountains, which have long attracted prominent figures, some of whom being; Wayne Gretzky, Sylvester Stallone, Pete Sampras and Tom Petty.
Says Lake House Executive Director, Stuart Birnbaum, “A key component in the success of addiction treatment, beyond the clinical factors that is, hinges on the process of re-learning to experience the joys of living that have been faded out in response to long-term drug and alcohol abuse; and in rare cases such as this particular event, we had the opportunity to build on this process while simultaneously contributing to society as a whole, and that is truly awesome.”
While clients are often engaged in fun-type activities within a clinical framework, The Lake House Facility is afforded a variety of special events in lieu of Birnbaum’s prior 20-year long Hollywood screenwriting career, as well as his close ties with brother Roger Birnbaum who until recently held the roles of CEO and Co-chair at MGM Studios. States Birnbaum in closing, “Drug addiction and alcoholism kills, it tears families apart, it shatters careers and scars children, it’s devastating; and to utilize industry or family ties for the sake of helping newly sober clients who, at times, need nothing more than a little laughter, excitement or whatever, is something I am honored to do.”
The Lake House Recovery Center is situated in South Ventura County and straddles the city limits dividing Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village, CA. First opened in 2008, it has made its mark nationally as being among the more affordable luxury-type residential substance abuse rehab centers for men and women. They work with all forms of chemical dependency and dual-diagnosis matters, and offer complete medical detox, inpatient treatment, outpatient and more. Most notably is the fact that they have been successfully integrating advanced clinical protocols with time-tested elements such as, brain mapping, EMDR, neurofeedback, brainwave optimization, etc.
Clinical and admin staff is on hand 24/7 and may be reached at (877) 762-3707. The facility works with a variety of PPO health insurance plans and also offers financing options for treatment services. More information is available on their new website at: http://www.recoveryadvocatesusa.com.
