What makes us different

Reward Path Recovery is unique in how it combines methods that are decidedly pro-reward (as much as possible using carrots vs. sticks), pro-patient (identifying and addressing the unmet healthy needs that drive drug use), inclusive (drawing upon the strengths of many different schools of thought), current, non-denominational (honoring all faiths, but promoting none in particular), and rational (explaining why as opposed to encouraging surrender).  It is our experience that these additions and this reformulation make the recovery process more enjoyable and effective for those suffering, whether they are new to recovery, returning to recovery, or in recovery but feeling that their personal growth toolkit is incomplete.

  • Reward Path is located in a beautiful, uplifting Victorian home (listed on the local register of historical landmarks) with mountain views.
  • Reward Path enjoys the mild Southern California climate with nearby beaches and mountain wilderness trails for recreational outings.
  • Reward Path has its own signature workbook. In addition to providing addiction treatment standard of care curriculum, owner/founder and retired psychiatrist in recovery, Michael Vivian, has developed an innovative, supplemental workbook called “Reward Path Recovery” based on his academic, professional, and personal experience. He applies the excellence of his UCLA education and UC San Francisco training to expand and enrich the down-to-earth soul of traditional recovery culture.
  • Reward Path’s all recovering staff have been hand-selected for their expertise in providing not just state-of-the-art addiction treatment, but also truly informed dual-diagnosis care.
  • Reward Path facilitates the involvement of local recoverers with decades of sobriety in order to provide clients with extra guidance and support.
