Management Staff


The quality and depth of programming at Ohlhoff Recovery Programs are the highest in the field. Our staff, a multi-disciplinary team which addresses both the clinical and 12-Step aspects of treatment, includes licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs), Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselors and other addiction professionals under the direction of a Clinical Director who is a licensed Psychologist. Many are in recovery, so they understand the complexities of addiction firsthand and actually serve as models of recovery.

Ohlhoff Recovery Programs is licensed and certified by the State of California Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs. Ohlhoff Recovery Programs contract with most managed health care firms and accept third party reimbursement from insurance companies.
