The Basics

Founded in 1977, the Asian Pacific Counseling and Treatment Center (APCTC) is a culturally-specific behavioral health organization and was originally an extension of the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health. It was privatized in 1990 and is now a subsidiary of Special Service for Groups (SSG). As it stands today, the CARF-accredited organization provides flexible outpatient-based programs for clients struggling with addiction, mental illness and additional behavioral health issues.

Treatment and Staff

Before beginning treatment, participants go through an initial intake and assessment process to help staff members determine their specific needs. Though on-site detox services are not available, those in need can get referrals to nearby facilities as necessary. Once stabilized, outpatient programs for mental health and dual diagnosis issues are available for both adolescents and adults.

While the specifics of treatment may vary, outpatient programs include individual, group and family therapy rooted in evidence-based treatment practices like CBT and DBT. Children’s programs also include play therapy, art therapy and sand-tray therapy. Because APCTC is a broad organization of many different mental health counselors, specific modalities may vary. Other methods used include trauma-informed care and experiential therapies. Groups cover many topics including case management, family support, life skills and emotional processing. Dual diagnosis support is available as well. Though 12-step participation is not required, these programs may be encouraged when appropriate.

The staff at Asian Pacific Counseling and Treatment Center consists of psychiatrists, psychologists, LMFTs, RNs, case managers, LPCs, LCSWs, CADCs and additional Master’s-level clinicians.

Extras

Standalone case management services are also available as are stepped down aftercare services for those who complete primary care. Other services include parenting classes, psychological assessments, social and life skills classes, community education groups and other rotating topics. In-school mental health programs are also available as are CalWORKS programs, support for homeless clientele, senior citizens and more. As mentioned, culturally specific services are also provided—counseling is available in Cambodian, Cantonese, Mandarin, Taiwanese, Japanese, Korean, Laotian, Cebuano, Ilocano, Tagalog, Thai and Vietnamese.

In Summary

In all, Asian Pacific Counseling and Treatment Center provides a wide variety of affordable and community-oriented programs to the local Asian-American diaspora. Treatment plans are individualized and include evidence-based practices, educational workshops and life skills aimed at both individuals and families. Though its available services are relatively specific, Asian Pacific Counseling and Treatment Center remains an affordable resource for those to whom it applies.
