Dr. Miriam and her amazing staff basically saved my son’s life.

PCI is the best — and it starts at the top with Dr. Miriam’s warmth, expertise, and genuine compassion. If you want more details, I’m more than happy to share; contact me via email.

PCI Westlake Centers is the only treatment/therapy center that I have attended in which I felt that the staff put everything that they had into my recovery and overall mental and emotional health. One on one sessions with my therapist were vital to my recovery and I currently have more physical, emotional, and spiritual sobriety than I ever have had in my life. The policies and practices at PCI Westlake are among the most professional I have ever experienced.

I spent nearly six months in their IOP program, and it has given me a solid footing to continue on with my sobriety and growth. The staff has helped me immensely, and I really appreciate how individualized their treatment plans are. Even after being out of IOP for 6 months I still take advantage of having one-on-one sessions. I’ve had many therapists in the past, and the one I have through this program is like no other.

Unlike any previous treatment center I have attended PCI was able to bring practical life solutions that could be applied into the groups. The staff was always very respectful of everyone’s space yet doing their utmost to push people to grow.” PCI has helped me a great deal with the group, keeping me clean & sober. The most that helped me was the individual sessions with my primary therapist.

I attended PCI in Westlake Village for a dug and alcohol problem I have been struggling with on and off for my entire life. I have been to multiple rehabs and multiple detoxes and always ended up back in active addiction. I was referred to PCI as an outpatient service from a detox I had attended. I was able to get group therapy, one on one sessions with a therapist I grew to trust and was prescribed medication that was right for me at that time. Since completing the IOP course at PCI. I am almost 10 months sober. Most time I have ever had, and seems to come almost effortless at this point. I am forever appreciative of Dr. Miriam and Dr. Patrick and the entire staff of PCI. I really would not be where I am with out their support and knowledge.

  • - Tanya B.

Recommending PCI is an understatement. The change that took place in my life was because of the resources that were given to me by Dr. Miriam and her team at PCI. They helped me turn my life around so that I could be the person that they knew I was capable of all along.

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths.

  • - Tanya Bramson

I began attending PCI in June of 2018, I was incredibly nervous and unsure of what to expect, but those feelings were immediately met with warmth and support. The therapists at PCI helped me build a foundation, not only for long term sobriety, but for emotional growth as well. I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for Efren and the rest of the team. I have learned so much about myself, about healthy coping skills, and that vulnerability does not equal weakness. For me I knew I needed therapeutic support, as well as the help of a 12 step program in order to succeed in my recovery. With the support and skills I learned I now have three years of sobriety, incredible relationships, and job that I love. I am forever grateful for my time in PCI's intensive outpatient and my continued individual work with Efren.
