Los Angeles, California is one of the largest cities in the world. It is home to numerous international corporations and industries, such as film and television production, fashion, manufacturing, shipping and design. Los Angeles is also a leader in healthcare including world renowned hospitals, surgical centers, medical education programs and research. In addition to medical services, there are numerous treatment programs that provide psychiatric stabilization, detoxification from alcohol and drugs, as well as treatment for mental health conditions such as bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression and trauma. These treatment programs are known as residential or inpatient rehab and include 24 hour care for acute medical and mental health care.
There are also thousands of licensed Psychiatrists and therapists in the Los Angeles area that provide specialized care for individuals and families struggling with conditions such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, OCD, and many other issues and disorders. These mental health professionals may have specialties that focus on evidence-based practices, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), as well as psychopharmacology to help clients find new ways to live with their mental health condition. Mental Health professionals in Los Angeles may also be helping people to recover from addiction to alcohol or other drugs such as oxycontin, fentanyl, heroin, meth, marijuana or cocaine. It is not uncommon for someone that struggles with addiction to also have a diagnosed or undiagnosed mental health condition. Having a diagnosed mental health condition as well as an addiction to alcohol or drugs is known as a “co-occurring” or a “dual diagnosis” condition. Getting the right care for both addiction and mental health is important to help someone maintain sobriety and to live a healthy productive life.
More than ever before there are so many treatment options to choose from that it can be overwhelming even knowing where to ask for help. Each day hundreds of people are searching online for “Los Angeles depression rehab” and “Los Angeles anxiety treatment” or a “Los Angeles drug rehab near me.” The search term “Los Angeles mental health clinic” or “what helps anxiety” can lead to options that are not relevant to the type of help someone really needs. Even the search phrase, “Los Angeles mental health therapist near me” can bring up a list of thousands of therapists leading to the overwhelming decision of who is the best fit. Putting together the pieces of a treatment plan usually takes time to make sure the client is getting the right care. Not all programs and clinicians have the same training or specialty and each client does not need the exact same treatment so it is important to take time to assess and evaluate the options to ensure the client is safe and getting the right level of care at the right time.
At CAST Centers we provide Outpatient Treatment Services that work in conjunction with medical providers, as well as therapists and Psychiatrists from around the Los Angeles area. Many clients do not need an acute or residential level of care, but may benefit from additional support provided in CAST Centers Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Outpatient group therapy helps clients to connect with other people who are struggling with similar life issues while living at home or in one of the many Los Angeles sober living homes. Our clients learn through each other while exploring themselves in our CAST Alignment Model (CAM), which provides a weekly psychoeducational structured format. Group therapy at CAST Centers also helps people find a sense of belonging in a community setting that is comfortable and inspiring. CAST Centers has been helping families and individuals in the Los Angeles area since its founding in 2006. The majority of our clients work and live in the Los Angeles area so it is important that they seek treatment that is dedicated to helping them find the freedom to be their best self in their community.
Having a busy family and work schedule can make going to an outpatient rehab a challenge. Not to mention, 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. Getting help for addiction and mental health conditions should not cause more unnecessary stress and that is why our clients have the option to participate from the comfort of their home or office. Our entire telehealth process from insurance verification through the admission process 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.
