G&G Holistic Treatment Center
About Our Founders
The owners and founders of the program are John Giordano and Jerry Goldfarb. Both founders are recovering addicts with over 22 years of recovery time each from drugs/alcohol. They have a wealth of experience working in the field of addiction. These men are progressive, open-minded, forward thinkers who were far ahead of their time in terms of Holistic Treatment for addiction. This program design has developed from their insights and experiences and continues to change and grow as new therapies and scientific facts come to light.

We are one of the only programs in the world that does a full bio-chemical profile of each client’s body mineral and vitamin deficiencies and/or excesses and also a heavy metal profile. This allows us to create a customized supplementation protocol for each individual and rebalance their brain chemistry which significantly increases their sense of well being and chances for long term success.
All clients receive a nutritional assessment by a licensed nutritionist and may choose to develop meal plans to suit their individual needs for weight-loss, gain or maintenance. While in our care, clients are offered only fresh, healthy and nutritionally balanced meals and are encouraged to take our proprietary vitamin and nutritional supplements daily in order to restore the proper chemical balances in the brain and body. Special dietary needs such as vegetarian and Kosher can be accommodated.
To further restore balance within the body, clients are offered Auricular acupuncture five days per week and are transported to the spa on Saturdays to cleanse and detoxify the body on a cellular level and encourage “sober fun”. Massages and colonics for relaxation and detoxification are also available to our clients at an additional cost. Our clients participate in a comprehensive fitness program. They are transported to the Olympia Gym, a state of the art fitness facility, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and to a Yoga studio & Karate Dojo on Saturdays and Sundays. The clients also have the opportunity to participate in a team building, self-esteem building, and confidence building Ropes Course, which is offered every thirty days.
