Did this program in LA. Smoking in 1981 and alcohol in 1984. Both worked beautifully for me. I feel that anyone that it does not work for has other issues. You should leave there sober. That was there job. If you are someone who also needs on-going counseling have it set up before you go in. Based on MY experience there should be nothing here but 5 stars. Anyone that it did not work for I am sorry. I know how difficult it is but worked for me. Only posting this now because I was not aware they were still in business. Left Santa Barbara and LA and just thought they were out of business.
Schick Shadel Hospital was founded in 1935 by Charles A. Shadel. A pioneer of his time, Shadel understood what very few in his time knew: alcoholism is a disease, a neurological illness that is mentally and emotionally incredibly difficult to control or manage. Unlike many of his peers, Shadel understood that addiction was not a result of weak willpower or moral failure, but rather a physiological response to stimuli. He worked to treat addiction on the level that it existed: as part of a neurological response. As a result of his work, Schick Shadel developed a method of treatment we called “counter conditioning.” For
years Schick Shadel Hospital (SSH) has been committed to providing a supportive and compassionate environment and the highest level of patient care and satisfaction to the diverse population we serve. SSH embraces patients of different race, religion, color, gender, sexual orientation age, national origin, disability, marital status, and effective, unique and proven medical treatment for people with substance use disorders to help them live a clean and sober life.
