Treatment For Mental Health In Los Angeles

Launch Centers provides mental health treatment in Los Angeles to young adults who struggle with substance abuse and mental health disorders. We recognize how mental health issues can impact social skills, career growth, and daily activities and can lead to addiction to cope with symptoms.

Mental Health Disorders We Treat

Our team is highly skilled in treating various mental health conditions, targeting their root causes, symptoms, and how they lead to substance use disorders. These include:

Schizophrenia + Thought Disorders

Schizophrenia and other thought disorders can severely impair a person’s ability to function if they suffer from delusions, hallucinations, and paranoia that alter their perception of reality. These conditions can also negatively impact young adults’ mental health, behavior, and self-esteem, hindering their educational, social, and employment pursuits. Other thought disorders include schizoaffective, schizophreniform, and delusional disorders.

Depression + Mood Disorders

Launch Centers provides a mental health program that gives young adults the necessary coping skills and tools to effectively manage mood disorders like depression. These disorders can significantly impact mood regulation and overall functioning, causing persistent feelings of sadness that may lead to substance abuse. Mood disorders can even elevate mood to manic levels, causing difficulty sleeping and relaxing.

Bipolar Disorder

Our mental health treatment program and dedicated staff specialize in helping individuals with bipolar disorders manage their symptoms, helping them to lead fulfilling lives despite the intervals of manic and depressive episodes. We also address any co-occurring addiction to drugs or alcohol commonly accompanying mental health conditions to improve our client’s overall quality of life.

Personality Disorders

Personality disorders are complex conditions that can lead to unhealthy thought patterns, erratic behaviors, and difficulties in maintaining relationships, impacting an individual’s overall quality of life of an individual. Although personality disorders can lead to troubling behaviors such as defiance, self-harm, and addiction, they can be effectively treated with professional support and evidence-based therapy.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a misunderstood anxiety disorder characterized by compulsive thoughts resulting in erratic behaviors. There are several types of OCD, including checking, contamination, symmetry, hoarding, and intrusive thoughts, which can cause significant stress for those affected. Although compulsions provide temporary relief, they often lead to intense feelings of shame and negatively impact daily life. At Launch Centers, our treatment center is capable of helping young adults develop healthy coping mechanisms for OCD symptoms.

Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety disorders are prevalent among young adults and can significantly impact their daily lives. The excessive worry and nervousness associated with anxiety can interfere with various aspects of an individual’s life, such as vocational, academic, or social pursuits. Our mental health treatment program can help young adults develop healthy coping mechanisms and learn valuable skills to manage anxiety symptoms.

How We Treat Mental Health Disorders

At Launch Centers, we understand that mental health treatment is not a one-size-fits-all approach. We recognize that clients come to us with unique experiences, circumstances, and needs. Therefore, we tailor our mental health treatment programs to fit each individual’s requirements to achieve the best possible outcomes. We offer a comprehensive range of psychotherapy and holistic modalities.

These include: 

  • Life Skills and Career Development – We believe successful treatment involves more than just addressing the symptoms of mental health conditions. It also involves building our clients’ skills and knowledge to thrive in all aspects of their lives. That’s why we place a strong emphasis on teaching essential life skills that our clients can apply in their personal and professional lives.
  • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) – During CBT sessions, individuals work with a behavioral health therapist to identify negative thoughts and beliefs contributing to their symptoms. They then learn techniques to challenge and replace these thoughts with more positive and realistic ones. This process can help individuals to break free from negative patterns of behavior and develop new, healthier coping strategies.
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) – Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) developed to help individuals struggling with emotional regulation. DBT focuses on four core areas: mindfulness, stress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. By learning and practicing these skills, individuals can improve their ability to manage emotions, communicate effectively, and cope with difficult situations.
  • Experiential Therapy – Experiential therapy is a form of therapy that emphasizes the therapeutic value of experiences. Through mindfulness and healing experiences, individuals can learn to overcome negative thoughts and emotions. Experiential therapy can take many forms, including art therapy, music therapy, and adventure therapy. Overall, experiential therapy aims to create a fun and supportive environment where individuals can explore and work through emotions.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) – Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a therapeutic technique that helps individuals process and heal from traumatic experiences. During EMDR, the therapist guides the client to focus on a traumatic event while using bilateral stimulation, such as eye movements or tapping, to stimulate both sides of the brain. The goal is to reduce the emotional distress associated with traumatic memories and replace negative beliefs with more positive ones.
  • Trauma-Informed Care – Trauma-informed care is an approach that prioritizes understanding and treating the effects of trauma on an individual. This approach recognizes that trauma can affect every aspect of a person’s life and requires a sensitive and supportive response from mental health care professionals. Trauma-informed care aims to create a safe and welcoming environment for those who have experienced trauma by building trust, promoting empowerment, and fostering resilience.
  • Emotion-Focused Therapy – Emotion-focused therapy (EFT) is a form of psychotherapy that prioritizes the emotional experiences of individuals. By focusing on the emotions behind a client’s behavior, EFT helps individuals understand their emotions and those of others. EFT also emphasizes the importance of empathy, helping clients connect more deeply with their loved ones. Additionally, EFT can effectively treat various mental health conditions, including anxiety, depression, and trauma.
  • Attachment Theory – Attachment theory is becoming more popular in addiction treatment to address the underlying emotional and psychological issues that often drive addictive behaviors. Research has shown that individuals who struggle with addiction have attachment difficulties, which can stem from early childhood experiences with caregivers. By addressing the root cause of addiction, attachment-based treatment can help individuals overcome their addiction and develop healthier, more fulfilling relationships.

Our Mental Health & Dual Diagnosis Treatment Programs

  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is designed for individuals who require intensive mental health services but do not need to be hospitalized. PHP provides clients a structured environment where they can receive therapy, participate in group activities, and receive medication management.
  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)The intensive outpatient program (IOP) is a vital resource for individuals who require ongoing treatment support while managing other responsibilities such as work or school. With a range of therapeutic approaches, an IOP can be tailored to the client’s individual needs, providing them with the tools necessary to manage their addiction and achieve a successful recovery.
  • Standard Outpatient Program (OP)A standard outpatient treatment program (OP) is designed to help individuals transition from higher levels of care to daily living in a supportive and structured environment. The program provides various services and treatment options tailored to the individual’s needs, including individual and group therapy, medication management, and education on various life skills.
  • Detox Detoxification, or simply “detox,” is the process of removing harmful substances from the body. Individuals with a dual diagnosis of a mental health disorder and substance use disorder may need detox before starting their treatment. We understand the importance of a safe and effective detox treatment plan, and while we don’t offer detox services ourselves, we will work closely with clients and their families to find a reputable detox program.
  • Benefits Of Mental Health & Dual Diagnosis Treatment

  • Relief from mental health conditions – We can help treat mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD, through coping strategies, techniques, and medication.

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.

    • Nicole Y.

      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.
