The Unique Approach Of Breathe Life Healing Centers

The Unique Approach Of Breathe Life Healing Centers

As part of our ongoing profile series into unique treatment facilities throughout the southland, we are proud to share the revolutionary techniques happening at Breathe. What is Breathe, you ask? It is much more than a recovery clinic. It is a healing center. Here, patients dealing with drug and alcohol issues, eating disorders, traumatic incidents or mental health struggles can find a safe haven (and a beautiful one at that) where, as they put it, 21st century solutions are put into play.


We had the pleasure of chatting with Kristen Johnson, MPH, the facility’s Clinical Outreach Manager about what makes Breath so unique.


“We are a true trauma-informed program,” she explained. “And we have an incredible team. If you were to go the About Us section of our site, you would see a list of truly incredible, qualified individuals working hard to make a difference.”


One team member Kristen made sure to highlight was Breathe founder Brad Lamm. A veteran of shows like Dr. PhilTODAYThe Doctors and The Dr. Oz ShowBrad has managed over 1,000 interventions, presented before Parliament in the United Kingdom, served on the board of Intervention Specialists and (very openly) beaten addictions himself.


Below is a video of Brad, sharing the mission behind Breathe.


As you can tell from above, another major selling point of Breathe is its amazing location. This is one facility that exemplifies tranquility, nestled atop Laurel Canyon in the beautiful Hollywood Hills.


Here are arial views of the campus, where patients can focus on their recovery in gorgeous luxury homes.

And how exactly does the treatment process work at Breathe? Kristen explained that they use a unique two-pronged approach that emphasizes community-focused addiction recovery programs and a spiritual healing component developed by founder Brad Lamm. Kristen also told us that Breathe is very forward-thinking in its methods, incorporating the newest treatment techniques and offering innovative, interactive programs.


Breathe makes sure that each treatment method is unique, with specially catered programs available for opioid abusers, narcotics users (which breaks down treatment into Mind, Body and Spirit) and even 20-somethings via a special program called Failure To Launch.


Another progressive trait of Breathe is that it’s very social savvy. Brad regularly appears in educational YouTube videos and has a very active channel. There is also Twitter Page, a LinkedIn account and a busy Facebook page, complete with videos, online Tour scheduling and article sharing.


Not only is Breathe taking recovery into the modern era, it is doing it very well and offering a ton of proven results. Kristen also made a point to mention their work in the trauma field and how important that mission has become for the facility. Currently, Breathe treats everything from PTSD, to abuse survivors and more. They also have one of the nation’s top trauma therapists running the program.


We highly encourage all of our readers to further explore the unique approach of Breathe. Their website is fully interactive and a great first step into understanding more about this amazing facility.
