Beverly Hills, California therapist: Clare Waismann, drug and alcohol counselor
Addictions or Substance Abuse

Clare Waismann

Drug and Alcohol Counselor, Registered Addiction Specialist (RAS), Substance Use Disorder Certified Counselor (SUDCC)
Specialty A Rapid detox under anesthesia. The patient remains in a private ICU room sleeping under anesthesia while our quadruple board-certified medical director, Michael H. Lowenstein, M.D., uses antagonist medications to induce and speed the acute withdrawal. The procedure lasts less than two hours, the patient wakes up shortly after and has already received medication to prevent physical cravings. The patient remains in ICU receiving IV medications, fluids, and vitamins while the team manages vitals throughout that day and overnight. Aftercare is then provided at a specialized retreat for a few days during the regulation period to maximize detox success. Specialty B Medically assisted detoxification. The patient stays in a private room for one to three days, depending on their individual needs, while receiving high levels of medication to blunt the withdrawal syndrome. The patient receives sedatives but is not put under anesthesia. This minimizes the horrible withdrawal symptoms associated with detox and maximizes comfort and safety. They also receive IV medications, fluids and vitamins while the team manages vitals. Aftercare is also provided at a specialized retreat for a few days during the process. Specialty C Aftercare services provided by Domus Retreat®. A private facility for our patients to receive continued care, around the clock support and services to successfully complete their treatment. This gives the patient the ability to recover without placing the burden of care on a family member or friend. Patients receive individual psychotherapy. This level of one-on-one attention ensures the assessment of unique emotional issues. It also enables our therapist and Clinical Director of Domus Retreat, David B. Livingston, LMFT, to suggest and guide each individual through the process of seeking further psychological or psychiatric care, when needed. Other services include massage, yoga, and counseling to support their emotional and physical transition to an opiate free life.

Beverly Hills, California therapist: Samer Fawaz, marriage and family therapist
Addictions or Substance Abuse

Samer Fawaz

Marriage and Family Therapist, M.A., AMFT
As someone who has struggled with addiction, I deeply understand the feeling of needing to use or abuse substances in order to survive in this world. The shame we feel when we are in the quicksand of addiction stunts our growth and keeps us in the same place. The fact is, addiction tricks us into thinking we are mitigating pain when in reality it is producting more trauma within us. My goal is to create a safe environment for you to express all your feelings about your addiction with no shame or judgment so you can feel motivated to make change.

Addictions or Substance Abuse

Michael Pezzullo

Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT
There is so much more to addiction that the substance being used. I would argue that brain is primed for addiction long before most addicts pick up a drink or a drug (or begin to eat or have sex dysfunctionally for that matter). I work with clients using both harm reduction and abstinence based recovery models.

Addictions or Substance Abuse

Jonathan Kruger Therapy

Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT
Addiction of any nature is a profoundly challenging constellation of behaviors to understand, address, and ultimately replace with healthier choices. Addiction is further complicated by the strong likelihood that co-occurring conditions will accompany the addictive behavior: anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges often go hand in hand with compulsive behavior. As a result, grasping the full breadth of the patient’s behavior and background is vital to treatment, but that is just one piece of a holistic approach. Fundamentally, addiction treatment must address the fact that at the heart of compulsive behavior lies a sense of self. The truth is, at some level we are all wounded or, indeed, fractured. The challenge for those suffering addictive behaviors is that the wounds are so profound that the only way to find relief is to engage in maladaptive behaviors. In fact, the truly nefarious aspect of addiction is that while it is rooted in a fractured sense of self, the addictive behavior itself blocks the patient’s ability to empower and re-structure their internal narrative. Addiction is not only the crutch that soothes the fractured self, it is also the barrier that prevents a new self-empowerment to emerge. This creates a vicious cycle, and the common emotional aspects of addiction then dominate the addict’s self-narrative: guilt, shame, hopelessness and despair. The essence of overcoming addiction, and the core of my treatment philosophy, is the desire and ultimately the decision to live your life in a new and different way. This decision is extraordinarily difficult and requires a comprehensive set of tools to sustain it over a lifetime. The good news is that the scientific underpinning of addiction treatment is making extraordinary progress. My practice for addiction seeks to understand and suggest new therapeutic options, and to pair those with a deep exploration to the source of your maladaptive behaviors and the experiences that fractured your original sense of self. My goal is to create a safe, trusting and healing environment to explore these core issues and to re-create a new self-narrative, replacing addictive behaviors with new coping mechanisms and actions. Ultimately, my goal is to re-assemble the fractured self, leading to a newly empowered individual with the skillset to begin a completely new, nourishing, and rewarding life.
