Opened in 2016, Foundations Los Angeles in Encino, California is another addition to the expansive Foundations Recovery Network, a national behavioral health organization that provides comprehensive treatment for addiction and co-occurring disorders. This outpatient facility uses evidence-based therapy, didactic sessions and holistic practices. Foundations Los Angeles’ Stages of Change approach to treatment allows clients to identify addictive patterns and develop tools to change thinking and behavior.
Treatment and Staff
After an initial intake and psychiatric assessment, staff members work with clients to create an individualized treatment plan. All treatment is culturally sensitive to suit the diverse client base of Los Angeles. Though intensity of programs vary, all tracks combine individual and group therapy that employs evidence-based practices such as CBT, DBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI). Groups address life skills, anger management, trauma resolution and relapse prevention with gender-specific groups available. Though programs are not 12-step based, clients are encouraged to attend off-site meetings for additional support in the recovery process.
Holistic practices are encouraged to supplement treatment and include yoga, meditation, massage therapy, art therapy and wellness classes—all offered through the program.
Case management services are also provided, which can include vocational counseling and help with further education. Clients who have completed primary care can attend weekly aftercare and alumni groups. Those seeking residential treatment will be referred to either the Canyon at Peace Park or Michael’s House, both part of the Foundations Recovery Network.
Additional services include specialized group therapy of clients with eating disorders.
Overall, Foundations Los Angeles offers comprehensive outpatient treatment for addiction and co-occurring disorders. Through a combination of evidenced-based care, educational groups, holistic practices and case management, clients receive a range of support services as they begin to build their outside sober network through local 12-step meetings. Foundations strives to live up to its name by providing clients with all the necessary tools for a successful sober life. Though the cost of programs may run slightly higher than other outpatient facilities, the diverse range of well-rounded and quality care provided seems to justify the price.
