CHANGES SB

Cutting edge dual-diagnosis outpatient program designed to treat substance abuse and mental illness located in Santa Barbara, CA.

It is reported that one in three Americans suffer from some form of addiction. Addictions break up families, destroy communities and can take on many forms: alcohol addiction, drug addiction, eating disorders, gambling addiction, sex addiction, smoking addiction, to mention a few. Put simply, addictions are habits that have spiraled out of control.

 

The use of the chosen substance becomes a necessity, as the brain and the body's chemistry changes and develops a physical and/or mental craving. Quite often the person suffering from the addiction is completely unaware that there is a problem and, even when it is pointed out to them, they will be in a state of denial.

NEW SANTA BARBARA FACILITY

WELCOME TO CHANGES

Changes Outpatient Wellness Center is an outpatient rehabilitation program primarily designed to treat alcohol and chemical dependency. Our aim is to transform an individual's life from the suffering of drug and alcohol abuse, to a healthy and fulfilling way of living. Changes provides evidence-based treatments and a living education that provides the foundation for sustained recovery.

BALANCE, STRUCTURE, CONNECTION

 Specifically designing the architecture for healthy living is an imperative first step to sustained recovery. All people suffering from abuse and addiction are unique and therefore require different treatment programs.

 

   At Changes, each client is individually assessed and a personalized program is created to best suit their needs and experience. From there our clients receive an education in living without substances and they discover capabilities previously unavailable to them. Introductions to a variety of support groups are implemented for each person so that they can create connections with others who understand their journey.

THERAPEUTIC FOCUS

Our therapeutic mission is to create a collaborative partnership with our clients that involves, supports and empowers them within their own process of recovery. The choice to change ultimately belongs to the individual, but requires expert guidance to achieve the desired results. A strong focus on underlying issues allows clients to identify, address and process situations that have previously contributed to unwanted behavior. Instruction on relapse prevention and mindfulness prepare clients to positively interact and cope with everyday stress and triggers. Wellness of mind, body and spirit is our goal.

 

BEYOND THE THRESHOLD

Sustaining recovery is a lifelong journey. New structure, relationships and perception must be cultivated and nurtured. Casting aside old habits and behaviors in favor of rewarding opportunities and experiences is what Changes intends for it's clients.

 

   Living life without alcohol and substances is an honor and a commendable achievement not a punishment. Integrity, character and trust are restored in one's self and among family and peers. Changes is at the forefront of a new threshold in recovery. We believe in the strength and courage of the human spirit and that anyone can join in the rewards life has to offer when living free and clear.

Over the past 30 years William Oswald has established himself as a pioneer in the alcohol and addiction recovery field. At the Adult Substance Abuse Program of Southern California (ASAP) he was one of the first to expand the scope of addiction treatment into mainstream medical facilities. In 1988 he founded Avalon Treatment Centers at Van Nuys Hospital, the first center to provide a broad range of social and therapeutic treatments that significantly reduced relapse rates. In the 1990s he established Lumax Mental Health, a company specializing in day treatment programs for dual diagnosis patients at area hospitals, and went on to direct business development for New Seasons Behavior Health Center, one of the first centers to utilize neurocognitive treatment for addiction. Mr. Oswald was also instrumental in creating Cocaine Anonymous, a 12-Step fellowship that has helped thousands.

Jeffrey was born and raised in Santa Barbara, where he resides with his teenage son. Due to personal experiences, in 2013 Jeffrey made the decision to live his life without alcohol or drugs. He eventually began working in the field of recovery for William Oswald, the owner of Summit Malibu Treatment Center. Immediately it became obvious that this was his true purpose and a partnership was conceived to open a cutting edge treatment facility in their own back yard. Having lost many friends to addiction as well as his own father at a young age, Jeffrey is incredibly compassionate about helping others with the struggle that is so personally familiar to him.
