Current Position:

Tarzana Treatment Centers, Inc., President, and CEO

Albert M. Senella, President and Chief Executive Officer at Tarzana Treatment Centers, Inc. (TTC). Since 1972, Albert M. Senella has guided a progressive range of integrated behavioral healthcare services at Tarzana Treatment Centers, Inc. (TTC).  In this capacity, he has developed a range of substance use disorder (SUD) and integrated health, mental health, and primary care services responsive to the needs of uninsured, low-income Los Angeles residents as well as persons with private resources. In response to the growing HIV epidemic, these services were interwoven with comprehensive HIV prevention, intervention and treatment services, creating a nationally recognized model of HIV services for drug users.

Under Mr. Senella’s leadership, TTC’s services have expanded to include five family primary care clinics (Northridge, Reseda, Palmdale, Tarzana and Lancaster), and case management and treatment programs tailored specifically for prison parolees. Mr. Senella has primary oversight of the agency’s budget comprised of local City/County, State and Federal government contracts and private funding.

As President of the California Association of Alcohol and Drug Program Executives (CAADPE), California’s largest and most diverse association, Mr. Senella is an active member of many state and local advisory bodies. Most recently, his advocacy has served to assist State legislators, policymakers and other leaders to recognize the contribution and potential of behavioral healthcare and SUD treatment agencies in major new initiatives such as Welfare and Healthcare Reform.
