About ASAP Family

ASAP Family was founded over twenty years ago by Dr. Dave Lewis. Since then ASAP Family has been dedicated to serving the Southern California community with quality chemical dependency treatment and mental health programs, as well as educational and preventative programs.
The treatment philosophy of the ASAP Family has remained firm throughout its twenty years. Chemical Dependency is a problem not only in the individual, but is a problem of the whole family. Treatment integrates emotional/physical individual therapy with family and multi-family treatment and activities.
In-hospital and residential, out-patient, and days-only treatment is available for children, youth and adults who are suffering from chemical dependency and emotional disorder on a referral basis. The ASAP Family also believes a continuing system of support is integral to the recovery process. Through meetings and by phone, ASAP counselors and friends are available to offer words of comfort, support and encouragement.
The ASAP Family also takes an active part in the community, believing that the best way to fight substance abuse and other emotional disorder is through education and prevention. ASAP provides educational programs and professional counseling for school officials, parents and students, for juvenile justice personnel and chemical dependency counselors and others. Through homes, schools and community events, ASAP is able to train people in:
  • Identification of drugs
  • Identification of the addict
  • Co-dependency
  • Dual diagnosis and the treatment of associated emotional disorders
  • Drugs and the law
  • Suicide prevention
  • Overcoming grief
  • Adolescent substance abuse problem
