Mental Health Program

The Mental Health Residential and Outpatient PHP & IOP Programs in Santa Monica and Thousand Oaks specialize in treating mental health disorders, psychiatric disorders, and dual diagnosis designed to provide long-term recovery and a healthful lifestyle. The hallmark of our program is our commitment to delivering high quality, personalized behavioral health care.

We provide a safe and supportive place to discover and explore what is occurring internally at the cognitive, emotional, and physical levels.


Our approach to treatment and wellness is derived out of the belief that examining the cognitive, emotional, and physical pieces can intersect and helps lead to uncovering your full potential. 

Our program is for people looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or those who are ready to move in a new direction in their life.
