Nancy Clark and Associates has been providing outpatient and residential treatment in Orange County, California, since 1990. Clients can choose the level of intensity they require and enroll in treatment at one of two facilities: The Recovery Center in Costa Mesa which provides long-term residential treatment or the Education Program, providing long-term outpatient treatment in Newport Beach.
Clark began her career as a Superior Court Investigator with the Office of the Orange Public Defender. There, she began developing sentencing alternatives for addicts who have committed crimes. Clark is a former President of the National Council on Drug and Alcohol Dependence and continues to serve on its Board of Directors.
Treatment and Staff
Outpatient treatment at NCA is known as a “Relapse Prevention” program and begins at the Intensive Outpatient (IOP) level with clients attending group therapy three times a week and individual therapy once a week. As they progress, clients may decrease the frequency of therapy with the approval of their counselors. The duration of treatment is progress-based, but most clients stay in treatment six months to a year.
Therapy groups usually have fewer than 10 participants and are led by Master’s-level therapists and addiction counselors including LMFTs, psychologists and CADCs. The cornerstone of treatment is the Matrix Model, and therapists use CBT and the 12-step framework in sessions. Clients are required to attend three 12-step meetings each week in addition to treatment. While the treatment team is qualified to address co-occurring disorders in therapy, clients needing dual diagnosis support are referred to local mental health facilities for treatment of more serious diagnoses.
NCA also employs experimental modalities with a holistic approach to treatment. Clients have weekly yoga classes and acupuncture sessions. Each Friday the Program hosts a motivational speaker to inspire clients with different experiences of recovery.
Additionally, Clark continues to serve as a sentencing consultant for private clients. The Education Program also hosts Clutterers Anonymous meetings as well as a Shoplifters Alternative course.
With her long commitment to finding effective alternatives to sentencing for addicts, Nancy Clark has amassed considerable knowledge of which treatment methods provide an effective foundation for lasting recovery. Nancy Clark and Associates’ long-term outpatient Education Program offers clients evidence-based and alternative therapies in a time-frame that gives them ample opportunity to integrate sobriety with the challenges of daily life.
