Oct. 10, 2012 - PRLog -- Since 2010 Roger Birnbaum and Gary Barber have played a critical dual CEO role in the successful revitalization of MGM Studios. Birnbaum’s announcement on Wednesday, October 3, 2012, one of Hollywood’s prominent studios, with current productions including; the upcoming James Bond film "Skyfall" and "Lord of the Rings" prequel "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” comes as no surprise to industry insiders who recognize Birnbaum’s passion for film making.  Birnbaum has struck a new independent production deal under his own banner with MGM.

While Mr. Birnbaum’s professional love has long been movie production at the helm of companies like Spyglass Entertainment (“Get Him To The Greek”; “Seabiscuit”, “Star Trek”) his heartfelt passions include an unwavering dedication to the fight against drug addiction and alcoholism.  At his side in this mission has been his brother, Stuart Birnbaum, owner/operator of Recovery Advocates Treatment Centers in Thousand Oaks and Los Angeles.  Birnbaum has been able to collectively enhance and improve upon what has been long seen as traditional, cookie-cutter drug rehab services. The premise underlying Recovery Advocates and their innovative approach to addiction treatment is the fluidity in their effort to perfect the merging of high-end scientific advancements in treatment along with time-tested recovery approaches like 12-step principles (Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous).

For over twenty-five years, Stuart Birnbaum has waged a successful battle with his own demons and throughout this time, his brother Roger has been at his side. Roger Birnbaum has been steadfast in helping his brother promote recovery enterprises that have ably served both the entertainment community and the community of recovery at large.  Ironically, the brothers’ diverse skill sets have served to complement each other.  

Stuart has longed championed the notion that “the most common causes for relapse, along with stress and isolation, is the temporary inability to find joy in life immediately after sobering up.”  Those in early recovery share many common traits, one of which is having forgotten how to have fun and enjoy life’s simple pleasures without the use of drugs. Together, the Birnbaum Brothers are playing key roles in helping to save the lives of addicts & alcoholics, while creating a platform of opportunity that is demonstrating remarkabe long term results.

Recovery Advocates is located in Thousand Oaks, California and has staff on hand 24/7 at (877) 762-3707. Much more information is available online at
