The Creative Care Philosophy

31 years of Innovative Clinical Excellence

Creative Care has provided innovative clinical excellence to dual diagnosis and primary mental health populations for over three decades. Founded in 1989, Creative Care is owned and operated by the Khaleghi Family. Since then, Creative Care has evolved with two programs currently offered 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 philosophy is to understand and process early experiences. Indeed, we unearth the 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. Furthermore, they have dedicated their lives to caring for Clients and their families.

World-Class Treatment Programs

Each of our programs and locations provides safe and supportive environments for treatment. We address difficulties, confront attachment challenges, and build coping 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. We assist Clients in connecting the dots and improving their quality of life. That means 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. As a result, this ensures diagnostic accuracy through psychological evaluation, physical examinations, and clinical observation. The team treats the whole person with 12-step philosophy, interventions, and other methodologies. We completely tailor each plan 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. We collaborate with them to target symptoms, achieve goals, and join them in their recovery journey.
