Chemical Dependency

Recovering from alcohol and drug abuse can change your life and the lives of those around you. For more than 30 years, Providence Little Company of Mary Recovery Center has offered a premier chemical dependency rehabilitation program addressing the needs of the chemically dependent and their significant others. Our inpatient and outpatient programs, certified by The Joint Commission, treat chemical dependency as a primary, progressive and chronic disease.

Chemical dependence is a disease in which the abused substances have caused changes in a person's body, mind, and behavior. This addictive process can lead to physical illness, behavioral problems, mental and emotional problems, serious societal consequences and spiritual bankruptcy.

For questions about our inpatient, partial inpatient and outpatient programs, please call (310) 514-5300.
