The National Alliance on Mental Health reports that one in five US citizens struggles with a mental health issue. Furthermore, one in 25 faces a serious and debilitating mental health problem like depression or anxiety. Yet too few people seek the help they need, which contributes to another awful statistic. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 10- to 34-year-olds.

At Creative Care, our goal is to help people with mental health issues get the experienced and compassionate care they need. Our programs are designed to provide our clients with the evidence-based tools they need. We help them take back control of their lives, freeing them from the prison that mental health issues so often build.

Whether you’re struggling with anxiety or you’ve been diagnosed with schizophrenia, here’s how we can help through our mental health treatment program.

Residential care

When it comes to getting the mental health care you or a loved one needs, our team of highly qualified mental health experts agrees that one of the best ways to tackle the problem is through an initial residential program. 

You get to devote this time to yourself in an environment where your only responsibility is to your health. This gives you the space you need to address your mental health issue. This oasis of care in a world that sometimes seems intent upon throwing up hurdle after hurdle is critical when you’re taking your first steps toward improving your mental health.

And we design our facilities to encourage and support your journey in every way. Our Calabasas campus is on a beautifully wooded, one-acre property in Malibu Canyon that offers endless peace and serenity. Wedged between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Monica Mountains, the facility features nearby hiking trails and sporting facilities. Our environment allows you to decompress and refocus your energies in a healthier way.

Expert support

As wonderful as our facilities are, they’re nothing without an incredible staff with a dedication to your care. From our certified and licensed psychiatrists and therapists to our direct care personnel, our goal is that you’re met with compassionate, caring, and knowledgeable mental health experts who help you every step of the way. In fact, our care extends to the kitchen, where our devoted chef makes sure that your nutritional needs are covered.

This individualized care is paramount when it comes to surmounting mental health issues as we understand that every person is different, with unique histories, diagnoses, and concerns. We tailor each person’s treatment to their circumstances. This ensures that they have the tools they need to lead happy, productive lives.

Length of stay

There’s no one-size-fits-all program, but we recommend that our clients stay for at least 30 days. This gives us enough time to make some headway. Mental health issues can be difficult to treat, as there’s typically no simple cure. Instead, it often takes a multi-pronged effort through medications, one-on-one therapy, group counseling, and targeted therapeutic modalities.

While this 30-day start is critical, many of our clients opt to stay for 60 or 90 days. During this time they slowly gain the confidence they need to head back out into the world.
