About Alexander Bacher

I am an addiction psychologist who has had the privilege of working at some of the finest residential treatment centers in the world, including Passages Treatment Center in Malibu, CA; The Kusnacht Practice AG in Zurich, Switzerland; Promises Treatment Center in Malibu, CA; and the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, CA. By working closely with hundreds of patients over the years, I’ve personally witnessed what does and does not work for people trying to recover from drug and alcohol addiction.

When someone attends a residential treatment center, they’ll thrive on the road to recovery during their stay. However, once people are discharged and re-enter the familiar real world, it’s often a harsh reality check. No longer confined within the residential treatment center’s supportive bubble, recovering addicts will often return to old addictive and dysfunctional behaviors—and relapse.

With patients in mind, I devised a residential treatment program that brings recovery tools directly to the client’s own environment. Instead of worrying about “going away” from responsibilities, friends, and family for months at a time, the patient receives a fully customized treatment that seamlessly integrates into their current life.

From my perspective, working directly with patients at home allows me to see their behaviors in a familiar environment. I believe—and know—that concierge treatment becomes a powerfully accelerated method of addiction therapy.
