Reconnect Integrative Trauma Treatment Center


Reconnect Integrative Trauma Treatment CenterThe Basics

Located in the beautiful beach city of Pacific Palisades, California, Reconnect Integrative Trauma Treatment Center has much luxury to offer for an outpatient program. Founded by licensed psychologist Karol Darsa, Reconnect aims to treat addiction and mood disorders by addressing what they believe to be the underlying cause—trauma, in all its forms. Through various methods, the staff at Reconnect help heal their clients from within, laying a solid foundation for long-term recovery in a safe and caring environment.

Treatment and Staff

While the program at Reconnect is exclusively outpatient, sober housing can be arranged at one of their affiliated transitional living facilities for those enrolled in the day program or the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Although these facilities don’t replace inpatient treatment, they do provide a semi-structured environment with transportation to and from treatment, activities on nights and weekends and a staff on hand 24 hours a day. For those coming in from out of town or who do not wish to stay at home while going through treatment, these houses are an excellent option.

Of the 17 staff members at Reconnect, clients are treated by several licensed psychologists, MFTs, a psychiatrist, an acupuncturist, a meditation teacher, an art therapist and several yoga instructors. Their recovery team is where Reconnect shines, as their staff are a cut above those of standard outpatient programs.

Reconnect offers three different treatment tracks: day treatment, intensive outpatient and customized outpatient. Each option requires a minimum two-week commitment to a program of individual therapy, EMDR, somatic therapy, meditation, yoga, movement therapy (also known as dance therapy), acupuncture, massage therapy, art therapy and neurofeedback. Unlike most treatment programs, Reconnect focuses only on individual treatment so no group therapy is offered.

The day program consists of 30 hours of therapy per week, and includes 10 hours of EMDR, six hours of one-on-one psychotherapy, four hours of somatic therapy, four hours of neurofeedback, three hours of meditation, two hours of yoga, two hours of movement therapy, two hours of acupuncture, one hour of massage and one hour of art therapy.

Although the name is misleading, the intensive outpatient program is actually less intense than the day program, with the option of either 15 or nine hours of therapy a week divided amongst the available treatment methods. The customized outpatient program is for clients who are looking for a looser schedule and less of a time commitment, with treatment offered as little as once or twice per week depending on clients’ needs.


What sets Reconnect apart is that through their emphasis on trauma, many of the alternative and supplemental therapies offered at luxury residential rehabs—like yoga, art therapy, acupuncture and movement therapy—are actually incorporated into the standard treatment program.

In Summary

Reconnect stands out from its outpatient competitors by offering a variety of treatment options and individualized care typically only available at residential facilities—but still at the cost of an outpatient program. While recovery from substance abuse is their focus, uncovering the wounds caused by trauma can be imperative in helping people heal from the inside out, and can address the underlying issues that contributed to their addictions. The trained staff, numerous amenities and beautiful setting create a desirable, safe and soothing space for recovery.
