WHo We are

Our History

Inneractions was founded in 2013 by Loree Cohen, LCSW and Angela Rukule, MS, ED, MFT.

Inneractions is an intensive outpatient program (IOP) for addicts and their families located in Woodland Hills, CA, in a discreet and professional setting. We’re a California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) and Joint Commission (JCAHO) certified facility.

Our team is comprised of highly trained mental health professionals and counselors who share more than thirty years of intense experience working with the unique needs and challenges of alcoholics and addicts. Through the Inneractions Program we offer education, insight, compassion, and everyday tools that people suffering from substance abuse, process disorders and mental health issues need to establish healthy, lasting lifestyles free from the destruction of addictive behavior.

Our Philosophy

We believe that drugs and alcohol are simply a means of coping with emotional and cognitive issues that exist from childhood or the events and/or trauma that have occurred during a person’s lifetime. By helping clients identify and address the underlying issues that are at the root of their addiction we can begin to break the destructive cycle of abuse.

To acquire and sustain recovery, an active change in beliefs, behavior, and emotions is needed. Evidence-based theories provide the foundation for the tools and techniques we utilize to help clients gain control of their emotions. It’s our experience that positive, sustained change can happen when the addict begins to shift their perspective on life, relationships, and behavior.

We believe in hope and the healing power of unconditional love. We believe in the triumph of the human spirit and that powerful, lasting change can happen even in the most difficult cases. It’s our mission to help our clients rebuild stronger than before so they can begin the process of repairing family, professional, and personal relationships.

The group facilitators are knowledgeable and considerate. I’m a difficult person to work with and they still tried. Jess is a great 1-on-1 therapist that works through Inneractions. My favorite facilitators were Shane, Rick, and Bethany. The other group facilitators were great too. Just like anything, one will get out of IOP what they put into it.

An excellent program that provided a strong clinical experience as well of an understanding of addiction and underlying mental health disorders to help me grow in ALL areas of my life.
