Introduction: Substance Abuse + Mental Health

Those with substance abuse or mental health diagnoses sometimes find that their path of recovery will be a lifelong journey. Mental health diagnoses can affect many facets of life, long after someone has left treatment. Just because someone no longer needs the intensive structure provided in residential, PHP and IOP, doesn’t mean they don’t need on-going support. Stressors, new and old, will continue to pop up, and it is ok to need a check in once in a while to stay on track. Clients That’s why we offer short term and long term an outpatient treatment program in Los Angeles. Clients often continue on with us, long after their initial 90 day plan is completed, so they may continue to get extra support as they transition back into school full time, move into their own apartment, or adjust to full time employment.

What is An Outpatient Program?

One of the most confusing steps in choosing the best treatment program for you in Los Angeles is deciding between residential and outpatient treatment. Searching through the countless addiction and mental health treatment options can be extremely overwhelming. Making the decision to seek recovery is a courageous choice, which is why it is important you find resources and a support system that caters to your individual needs.

Outpatient programs are designed in a way that allows clients to receive the treatment they need while also maintaining their jobs, participating in school, and tending to familial and other vital responsibilities. While attending Launch Center’s outpatient program in Los Angeles, clients will participate in individual therapy, group therapy, and educational sessions. At Launch Centers, our outpatient program consists of evidence-based therapeutic modalities. Our intensive outpatient and outpatient programs incorporate modalities such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), trauma therapy, family therapy, expressive arts, Medication-Assisted Therapies, and experiential therapy. Different levels of outpatient treatment programs were created to help each individual transition progressively from more frequent and intensive therapy to less as you display the ability to manage your recovery with less clinical support.

What To Expect At Our

Outpatient Program In Los Angeles

Launch Centers prides itself on its ability to treat a wide range of personal issues from substance use disorders to mental health disorders. Because of our years of experience and expertise, we treat individuals on a case by case basis in which we consider their unique situations rather than applying a cookie-cutter approach. Pain is complicated, personal, intimate, and unique which is why we understand that each client’s disorder may vary in severity and lie on a different part of the spectrum. Our outpatient program in Los Angeles is designed to help each and every client achieve recovery and independence. When a young adult, those aged 18-35, reaches out to Launch Centers they will first participate in an intake process. The intake involves a thorough review of the individual’s treatment needs and life challenges, as well as their hopes and dreams. From this interview, a personalized therapeutic plan is created that outlines a structured program for changing disruptive behaviors and learning new life skills, helping the individual achieve their purpose in life.

Launch Center’s Los Angeles outpatient program is designed to help those young adults struggling with substance abuse, dual diagnosis, failure to launch, and mental health disorders. Outpatient treatment includes the following program elements:

Individual talk therapy sessions

A personal Launch therapist will be assigned to the individual for the duration of the program, allowing a connection to develop that fosters mutual trust.  The therapists utilize the treatment modality best suited to the individual’s needs and may include cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, trauma-informed, existential, or humanistic therapies.

Group therapy

Group therapy offers peer support and feedback with a therapist facilitating topics of discussion.  These topics may include personal relationships, past traumas, addiction recovery, sexuality, health, and positive psychology.

Family therapy

The family dynamic is often inherent to the issues of the individual seeking outpatient treatment.  A healthy family system is important to cultivate through family therapy sessions that can provide open communication in a safe and supportive space.  Family therapy provides tools for improving communication between family members going forward, increasing harmony and improving the overall health of the family dynamic.

Expressive Arts

Psychodrama involves role-playing the internal or external conflicts that can keep an individual feeling trapped, leading to a sense of freedom.

All of the staff worked tirelessly with me to talk through my issues, or just about life, and offered realistic solutions to my current problems and situation. All of the staff went above and beyond and advocated relentlessly for me.

    This place changed my life! I’ve had good laughs, good cries, shared a lot of heart to heart moments and grew a loving bond with everyone at Launch Centers. I will always be grateful! I really do miss it time to time. I highly recommend Launch Centers!

  • Jenna S.

    Launch changed our lives. Our family had been battling for years to breakthrough to our brother. No amount of rehab or detox had made a difference. He was listless, lifeless and helpless. We feared for his life everyday. The spirit of, repetition in, core values, appreciation of life and dignity and respect that we found through Launch are unparalleled. I can say with full confidence that we never would have seen my “real” brother again if not for this truly magical combination. We were and still are especially grateful for his over-the-top therapist. Her commitment to his privacy and success coupled with her unwavering contact with any and all of us is what bridged our 3,000 mile separation from him.
