The Creative Care Philosophy

For 31 years

Creative Care has provided innovative clinical excellence to dual diagnosis and primary mental health populations for decades. Founded in 1989, Creative Care is owned and operated by the Khaleghi Family. Since established, Creative Care has evolved with two programs offered currently in Calabasas and Woodland Hills, California. Creative Care provides a complete range of treatment services to reach men, women, and families struggling with substance use, co-occurring and mental health disorders.

Established and managed by clinicians and psychoanalysts Morteza Khaleghi, PhD, LMFT, and Karen Khaleghi, PhD, Creative Care’s mission is to understand early experiences and underlying causes that manifest mental health difficulties and addiction struggles throughout adulthood. The husband-and-wife team pioneered a dual diagnosis approach in the treatment of addiction and have dedicated their lives to caring for Clients and their families.

Each of our programs and locations provides safe and supportive environments for addressing difficulties, confronting attachment challenges, and building skills. The Creative Care team uses a biopsychosocial approach, a psychoanalytic frame, and evidence-based practices to get patients and their families on the road to recovery.

With compassion, integrity, and spirituality, the clinicians implement individualized treatment plans to assist Clients in connecting the dots and improving their quality of life. That takes integrating the impact of historical traumas, understanding intricate interpersonal dynamics, and identifying mental health difficulties.

Every Client receives a comprehensive assessment
by Creative Care’s psychiatrist and seasoned clinicians, ensuring diagnostic accuracy through psychological evaluation, physical examinations, and clinical observation. The team treats the whole person with 12-step group programs, interventions, and other treatments completely tailored to each unique patient for the highest level of care.

The Creative Care team believes in unearthing and understanding the core of each patient’s experiences, collaborating with them to target symptoms, achieve goals, and join them in their recovery journey.
