AGOURA HILLS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / July 29, 2020 / Awakenings Treatment Center, one of the top addiction treatment centers in Southern California, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month.

Founded by renowned clinical psychologist and addiction specialist Dr. Shari Corbitt, Awakenings has grown from a small, 200-square-foot outpatient office serving only a handful of clients with drug addictions in 2010, to a 13,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art treatment center providing care to dozens of clients a month. The center helps people suffering from serious mental health disorders, chronic pain, trauma, PTSD, autistic spectrum disorder, as well as drug addiction and dual diagnosis disorders. In addition, Awakenings provides a one-of a-kind specialized program supporting the LGBTQ community.

Today, Awakenings Treatment Center has a staff of 30 specialists providing a range of mental health and addiction treatment modalities including neurofeedback, Alpha-Stim, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, family therapy, movement therapy, breathwork, meditation, and mindfulness. Corbitt is also getting ready to open a new residential detoxification program in September, where clients will receive safe and supportive recovery from alcohol, opiates and benzodiazapines.

'I'm so proud of how far we've come and of the life-saving support we've been able to provide our clients and their families over the past decade,' said Dr. Corbitt. 'It's hard to imagine what the next 10 years will be like, but I look forward to celebrating many new successes and client recoveries in the decades to come.'

In 2019, Awakenings was featured on The Dr. Phil Show, which endorsed the program as a Preferred Facility. Dr. Phil lauded the treatment center for its holistic approach to recovery, which goes beyond talk therapy and psychiatric medication management, providing a holistic and comprehensive range of interventions that promote sustainable, long-term healing. Since then, the center has been included on the Dr. Phil website resources page.

Awakenings Treatment Center has remained open during the pandemic. The center has implemented new safety protocols including weekly COVID-19 testing for staff and clients, regular disinfection of the facility, and the provision of personal protective equipment and hand sanitizer to all team members and visitors.

Awakenings Treatment Center continues to welcome new clients, and accepts in-network insurance with most insurance carriers, as well as private pay.
--Awakenings Treatment Center is located at 28720 Roadside Drive, Suite 200, in Agoura Hills. For information on admissions, call 855-717-3268 or visit
