Malibu, Calif. — Promises Treatment Centers has promoted Jason Levine, PhD, from Executive Director at Promises West L.A. to Senior Executive Director of Promises Treatment Centers.

In less than three years, Levine has made a tremendous impact on the staff and clients at Promises Treatment Centers. His talents and hard work have earned him a series of promotions, first from Clinical Director to Executive Director at Promises West L.A. in 2010 and again to Senior Executive Director of Promises Treatment Centers.

He is now responsible for daily oversight of Promises Malibu Drug Rehab Center, as well as administrative oversight of West L.A. and the Intensive Outpatient Program.

Levine is a licensed clinical psychologist who received his doctorate from New School University in New York City. He has worked in addiction treatment for more than 20 years, as both a clinician and administrator, serving the homeless, people with HIV/AIDS and various nonprofit organizations prior to joining Promises in 2008.

“Early in my career, I set out to work with clients who could make profound changes in a relatively short period of time,” said Levine. “In just a few weeks or months at Promises, we are able to witness people begin the process of healing, first physically, then emotionally and psychologically, and finally spiritually.”

With an approach that is highly individualized based on the needs of each client, Promises Treatment Centers provides sophisticated addiction and dual diagnosis treatment to individuals struggling with drug and alcohol use disorders. In addition, many clients also suffer from sex and love addiction, trauma, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and the full spectrum of mental health issues.

“Promises Malibu is among the most innovative addiction and dual diagnosis treatment programs in the world,” said Levine. “This is one of the most rewarding positions I’ve had in the most trailblazing organization I’ve ever worked for, and I’m grateful to be part of this team.”

“Jason’s combination of clinical skills and proven success as a clinical manager make him the ideal candidate for this critical role,” said Dr. David Sack, CEO of Promises Treatment Centers. “His ability to implement cutting-edge programming and to foster close collaboration among residential, outpatient and referring clinicians will ensure that our clients continue to receive the utmost in clinical care.”
