Breathe is the healing destination for getting better, since 2013. Our approach to addiction is client-centered, providing evidence-based clinical care in a supportive environment for transformation and change. 

Breathe is an LGBT-certified organization. That means Breathe is not just working to care for queer clients as a marketing decision but goes to the heart of who we are. Born out of our own collective experiences in activism and recovery over decades, we welcome you to have a powerful experience with us. 

Breathe is a welcoming, safe home for those seeking safety in an environment prioritizing dignity over profit. Breathe’s client population is primarily LGBTQIA+, straight women and men. We like to say that we are “straight friendly”. We welcome those who believe in the inherent dignity and equality of all human beings.

Our caring team and supportive community of alumni, numbering more than 4,000, are active locally and across the nation, where many alumni return after treatment. Utilizing 21st-century, effective trauma-informed action-method therapies we help clients recover from self-harming behaviors. This includes addiction, mental health suffering, and high-risk events to rebuild their lives.

Breathe’s services on our gorgeous Laurel Canyon Campus and at the Melrose Avenue Clinic include individual and group therapy, peer-to-peer support groups, and treating complex trauma and mental health needs. Clinical approaches include Internal Family Systems (IFS), Sensorimotor psychotherapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Family Class for family and concerned others.

Our Insurance Partners

Our alcohol rehab program makes it a point to provide every client looking to end their alcohol abuse with the resources that will help them do so. Upon entering into alcohol addiction treatment, some clients might need to detox, while others might be able to move right into the therapeutic portion of treatment. 

This is usually determined based on how long the person has used for, how much they have been using it, and the quantity of their use. Many alcoholics require professional detox in order to withdraw from alcohol safely.

We offer IMS Detox Services at our Breathe Life Healing Center OC, located in neighboring Orange County. For more information, visit

We provide a safe and supportive environment for those who are seeking relief and stabilization from co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. At Breathe Life Healing Centers, we understand the complexities of dual diagnosis and offer personalized treatment plans that address both conditions at the same time.

Our therapy sessions and treatment plans are tailored to the individual. We understand that everyone is different and has varying needs in therapy sessions. Using a personalized approach, we support you by customizing therapy plans to suit your unique needs.

Meet Our Founder, Brad Lamm

Brad is an author, teacher and interventionist best known for helping people make life-enhancing change in their lives.

Brad began his own recovery journey in 2003 from drugs, bulimia, nicotine + alcohol. What seemed an impossible challenge proved how even the most challenging cases might not just recover, but thrive from a starting point of hopelessness and brokenness.

In 2012, Brad realized a dream come true as he opened the first Breathe Life Healing Center to provide treatment techniques that are industry-leading and aimed to support mind, body, and spirit.

I'm so grateful for the team at Breathe. I've been sober along time and I work with people as they are first getting sober. There are many different ways to get sober, some manage to find it on their own. And others, need more help. My friend was one of the men that needed more help. He had tried and tried to get sober off Meth and it just wouldn't take. Eventually we decided that he needed additional help. Picking a rehab is hard, fortunately I've known other people that have come to Breathe and they found the help that they needed, so we picked Breathe. I am so grateful that we did. It wasn't a linear process and anyone that thinks recovery is a straight shot is mistaken. But my friend is now coming up on a year sober, has rebuilt his life with his family, his friends and career.
