Dr. Raymond Nourmand is an Addiction Psychologist, specializing in treating men with alcohol, drug, and gambling addictions. He has served as a psychotherapist at the acclaimed Chabad Residential Treatment Center in Los Angeles, California, conducting individual, family, and group therapy with men struggling with alcohol and drug addictions. He has also served as a Primary Therapist at the renown Seasons in Malibu: World Class Addiction Treatment Center in Malibu, California, conducting individual, couple, family, and group therapy mostly with men struggling with alcohol and drug addictions, and men with gambling addiction, while leading a team of addiction specialists.

Dr. Nourmand understands alcohol, drug, and gambling addictions can be complicated phenomena, both for those suffering with the addictions firsthand as well as their loved ones. He believes people with these addictions are by nature very kind, caring, and sensitive individuals. While some of their behaviors might be damaging, destructive, and hurtful, the truth is they are not acting in these ways because they are bad people, but because they don’t know how else to deal with their discomfort. He holds that at the core addictions are coping tools aimed at helping people deal with stressors and pressures, often related to the past. He is aware of the gender-specific struggles men face in today’s world, and specializes in treating men.

Dr. Nourmand works with clients in a concentrated manner, focusing on identifying the root causes of their addictions, removing obstacles and barriers, clearing a path, and empowering them to take the steps to live their best lives. He utilizes a gentle and direct approach in an emotionally sensitive and safe environment to guide them in their pursuit of happier, more fulfilling lives, free from their addictions.
