Who do we help?

We help people who abuse alcohol, drugs, or both. We understand that the approach to treatment for all drugs is the same, although each drug offers unique challenges.

We also help people who are dually-diagnosed, meaning that they have both a mental health issue, or issues, in addition to drug and or alcohol abuse.

We help both adolescents, and adults. Our Intensive Outpatient is a 3 month long program. Our Rehab Treatment Centers provide care around the clock for a length of time determined individually for each of our clients. Our Partial Day Treatment takes place on an outpatient basis.

Progressive Levels of Care for a Progressive Disease

Some people need to be admitted into our residential right away, immediately after they first call our admissions team. Others may be able to counter their disease symptoms and develop a solid foundation for recovery at our outpatient facilities.

Other people may first attend our outpatient program, and be easily stepped up into our higher level of care if need be. Certain people may also be partial day treatment treatment at one of our inpatient addiction treatment centers.

The level of care is dependent on the needs of an individual. Upon calling our admissions team, the initial assessment will determine the level of care needed to match the symptoms of one's abuse.

Insurance Covers up to 100% of Costs

We have unique in-network contracts with nearly all major insurance providers. Our contracts make the payment process not only affordable, but transparent throughout the entire process.

Our team will be in constant communication with your insurance provider throughout the process of treatment. Depending on the individual insurance plan, treatment will be covered at varying percentages of total costs. Some plans cover up to 100% of the costs of treatment.

If you would like to learn more about treatment at Action, you can do so. If you're ready to get on the phone with a member of our admissions team, you can contact our Admissions Team.

Action saved my life. Seven years sober and could not have made it without the counseling and information that I received.

Annaleah T.

Best thing my mom ever did for me. I ended up going back again for personal self and mental state it's amazing I am pretty bummed that since I am no longer a minor I cannot go back to the ranch the teen house but it was amazing and it really changed me. The counselors really changed my life. I love action family counseling

Brad W.

Mark R.

Cynthia R.

Years ago, I was a single parent raising 2 teenage girls. My household was out of control. Both my girls were "cutters" along with alcohol abuse, ditching school and other issues that I was not aware of. Many nights I sat in Action meetings with a box of tissues, then something clicked. I had opened an honest dialog with my girls. In all honesty, I truly was not ready to hear what they had to say and I was forced to deal with the TRUE issues behind their behavior. It was not easy, and it took more than just meetings. I am forever grateful for Cary Quashen and Action. It took years, but I have my family back, and that is PRICELESS!

Leslye S.

Action helped me to build a strong foundation to keep aware of my strengths and my commitment to a healthier spiritual path

Lori L.

Back in January 12, 2010 my daughter called me and told me I was going to detox. She said I had just called her. I didn't believe that I drug dialed her. She said I was going and that I was going today. I had just had a medical procedure under anesthesia that morning and wasn't feeling good at all. I was pretty mad to be forced to go. Detox was a nightmare and there was nothing to do. Just watch tv and sleep. They kept telling me I could go home after 3 days, that didn't happen. (.......) If you're looking for a good treatment center Action is the best place you can go. If I knew someone who needed to go I would bring them there. I am now 4 years clean and sober. This is a lifetime commitment. But the reward is you get your life back, better than it ever was before.

Years ago when I was younger Carey and his staff helped me get out of a bad situation. And get right with myself and my family. Then years later when my daughter was making bad choices I called Carey and he gave me great advice and the tough love worked miracles. My daughter is a college graduate and doing great! Thank-You, Carey and Staff

Tina G.

My family and I are extremely grateful to Cary and his staff for coming to our daughter's rescue. About ten years ago my husband called upon Cary (in the middle of night) for help with our child. Cary came to our house and after discussion put her into treatment. We honestly believe that this saved our daughter's life. The staff at Action gave their all into our daughter's treatment! We owe Cary and Action all that we have! Our entire family (and our daughter ) is beyond grateful!

Angel S.

I love the owner of the company (Cary Quashen)...... they work hard each and everyday to ensure that Action is the best program it can possibly be! My job is such a blessing... I get to go to work each and every day and help people.... what could be more amazing than that!?! It is an extreme honor to work with these families and help them and their families get better and become successful in recovery and all other areas of their lives too!!! Such a gift!

Derek S.

If it wasn't for Action reaching out and Carey putting out his hand, I wouldn't have gone into rehab, IOP, and I definitely wouldn't have 27 months clean and sober. Thank you to Carey and everything Action does. They saved my life, truly.

Vanessa B.

Thank you Cary Quashen and friends at Action for helping my sons birth mother get her life back. Without you, my son would not have been born the healthy beautiful boy he is today. My son is 2 years old today and he is perfect and thriving! #forevergrateful

Elle D.

Words can't express how thankful and appreciative I am for Cary Quashen and his wonderful organization of caring individuals. I highly recommend Action Family Counseling to families of teens in crisis! They can help and they really do care!

Lorna M.

I was in one of the first treatment center in North Hollywood. When there was a program called Tough Love on Thursday night! It helped me to change my life, I now am changing lives! Oh and Cary Q was the best and is still the best! Keep up the awesome work!

Fabian T.

I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to work for Action and be able to give back and turn my negatives into positives!! Breaking the cycle of violence and addiction in my own life has allowed me to help guide others in doing the same, and for that I am very blessed!!

Amanda M.

Thank you Cary Quashen for letting me be one of the ones you have helped! It took more than once but I eventually got it! And if it weren't for your help I wouldn't have the beautiful family I do today! We have 2 beautiful boys and I'm able to be present in there lives and be able to watch them grow up and enjoy every moment! It truly is amazing! 4 years off heorin this month! And I never thought I'd live to see this day! So thank you! (:

Elaine G.

I am so grateful for you guys!!! I was addicted to spice the synthetic weed. The counselors and rehab in Bakersfield CA helped me out so much!!! I got my life back. Many people don't know the harm of spice and how addicting it can be. Thank you lots.

Haley S.

Action family counseling saved my life almost 20 years ago. Cary is one of the most awesome men I have ever meet..

Vahid T.

If it wasn't for Action family counseling I would not have over twenty months clean. I can honestly say that if it was not for this program, the tools that I gained and an introduction to a fellowship I would most likely be dead. With this being said I will say with utmost conviction that Action literally saved my life. Staff are wonderful and genuinely empathetic to the needs of those struggling with addiction.

Colin K.

This place is great. I had a very wonderful experience as both a patient and an employee later on. All the facilities were very clean an professional. The staff is wonderful and we'll trained. Also the food is fantastic all the facilities have highly trained chefs.

Brett S.

Action Family Counseling is great! I attended the intensive out patient or (IOP) at 18 years old. Action helped plant the seed of sobriety in my life and because of that, I have been clean and sober for almost 6 years now!!

Shawn S.
