Since 1910 Hollywood has been a recognized neighborhood in Los Angeles, California. Over the years Hollywood has become known as the symbol of the entertainment industry. From film and television to music and stage productions Hollywood has drawn people from all over the world to either get into the entertainment industry or tour the many historical sites Hollywood has to offer. There is a lot more to Hollywood than just the glittery façade of film-land and tourist attractions. As the population grew, so did the need for infrastructure such as schools and health care including Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Hollywood Presbyterian and Southern California Hospital at Hollywood.
Additionally, there are numerous licensed therapists and Psychiatrists in the Hollywood area that provide specialized care for individuals and families struggling with conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar disorder, OCD, and many other issues. Independent mental health professionals may have specialties that focus on evidence-based practices, such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), as well as psychopharmacology to help clients live with their mental health condition. Mental health clinicians in Hollywood may also be helping people to recover from addiction to alcohol or drugs such as meth, marijuana, oxycontin, fentanyl, cocaine, or heroin. It is not uncommon for someone that struggles with addiction to also have a diagnosed or undiagnosed mental health condition. A mental health condition as well as an addiction to drugs and/or alcohol is known as a “co-occurring” or a “dual diagnosis” condition. Getting the appropriate care for both addiction and mental health to maintain sobriety and to live a productive healthy lifestyle is very important and not always clear where to begin.
With more options than ever before people have turned to the internet to find a “Hollywood drug rehab near me” or “anxiety treatment in Hollywood.” Every day people are searching online for a “mental health therapist near me in Hollywood” and “Alcohol rehab in Hollywood.” The search term “Hollywood Mental Health Clinic” or “what helps anxiety” might bring up a list of recommendations that is overwhelming and stressful. Even the search phrase, “depression therapist in Hollywood” can bring up a list of thousands of therapists leading to the overwhelming decision of who is the best fit. Getting the right care can be a matter of life and death as relapse today can lead to an unexpected overdose as we see more drugs laced with fentanyl. Treatment programs and therapists have areas of specialized care and since each client does not need the same treatment it is important to take time to evaluate outpatient treatment options to ensure the client is safe and getting the right care at the right time.
Located in West Hollywood, California CAST Centers is able to provide intensive outpatient treatment for mental health and addiction. At CAST Centers we can provide additional support for medical doctors as well as therapists and Psychiatrists from Hollywood. Most people don’t need an inpatient treatment program, but may benefit from additional support provided in CAST Centers Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Outpatient therapy in a group setting helps clients to connect with other people who are struggling with similar issues while they live at home or in a sober living home. As clients learn through each other they are exploring themselves in our CAST Alignment Model (CAM) which provides a psychoeducational structured weekly format. PHP and IOP outpatient group therapy at CAST Centers helps people feel safe in a community setting that is inspirational and comfortable. CAST Centers has been providing help for individuals and families in the Hollywood area since its founding in 2006. Many of our clients live and work in the Hollywood area so it is important that they can get treatment that is dedicated to helping them find the freedom to be their best self.
Fitting a Hollywood outpatient rehab into a busy work and family schedule can be a challenge. Commuting any time of the day in Los Angeles can be frustrating so as a result CAST Centers is proud to offer clients the opportunity to participate in outpatient treatment using telehealth during the day and evening. Getting help for mental health conditions and addiction should not cause more anxiety or stress and that is why our clients have the option to get help from the comfort of their office or home.
Our entire telehealth process from preadmission screening and insurance verification can be completed on the phone and via a HIPPA secure video link ensuring you the privacy and confidentiality you expect to receive from a healthcare provider.
