Geoffrey A. Booth, M.D.

Geoffrey A. Booth, M.D. is one of the most sought after addiction medicine physicians in Malibu and the Los Angeles area. He has extensive experience in providing expert medical detoxification for the most complex clients. After earning his B.A. in psychology at California State University, Los Angeles, Dr. Booth attended New York Medical College. He completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine at UCLA Olive View Medical Center and is Board-Certified in Addiction Medicine and Internal Medicine. After residency, Dr. Booth went into private practice where he garnered a statewide and nationwide referral base for patients who suffered from difficult-to-treat diagnoses.

Dr. Booth subsequently dedicated several years to providing medical services to the poor and uninsured. During this time, Dr. Booth was the Chief Medical Officer of three large urban Federally Qualified Health Centers and oversaw dozens of physicians and licensed health care providers. His responsibilities included supervising alcohol and drug and behavioral health departments. Over the years, Dr. Booth has treated thousands of addicts and now has dedicated most of his clinical time to providing medical care and detoxification to clients who suffer from substance abuse. He is committed to helping them establish the foundations for long-term sobriety.

“It is a courageous and monumental decision to leave the drink or drug you’ve known for so long and to reach out for a chance at freedom and a new life,” says Dr. Booth. “We provide the love, hope, and professional care clients need to safely start this magical journey,” he says.

While not working, Dr. Booth has a rich personal life filled with activities surrounded by friends and family. You can often catch him running through Palisades Park or cycling along the bike path through Santa Monica. He loves his family and spends a lot of time with his son playing games and teaching him sports.

Ryan Gartrell
Director of Business Development

Being someone that struggled with addiction myself and finally made it to the other side after many short-lived attempts at sobriety, I have a sincere desire to help others find their way to the other side as well. I am passionate about helping people, and can truly relate to the person who is in the midst of their addiction. Sometimes we just need someone to hang beside us, even if we have to scrape our knees a few more times.

Mike Bradshaw, CADC II
Program Director

Mike’s career in addiction treatment began through his own personal journey. He began working in treatment in 2009, and in 2013 he became a Certified Addictions Treatment Counselor (CATC I) through California Alcohol and Drug Educators (CAADE). Mike began working as an Addiction Counselor and is now a sought-after Program Manager. He has been instrumental in the development of Treatment programs in Los Angeles while also remaining involved in direct care. He believes that to effectively help a person struggling with addiction, they need to be guided towards a new way to live. This belief in addition to his unconditional positive regard for others is the reason he remains a trusted guide in the addiction community.
