Treating Mental Health During Addiction Recovery is Essential
From depression to anxiety or trauma, there are many mental health disorders that can influence or cause addiction. Indeed, many adults who struggle with substance abuse don’t even realize they have a mental health concern. Creative Care believes it is imperative to complete a comprehensive assessment in order to develop the proper individualized treatment plan for your specific needs.

Creative Care’s Residential Mental Health Treatment Program is grateful to call Calabasas home. Creative Care Calabasas is set on a beautifully-wooded, one-acre property in Malibu Canyon. Beneath the treetop canopy of centuries-old oak trees, the intimate setting is ideal for Clients struggling with mental health issues. Cast between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Monica mountains, Creative Care Calabasas’ advanced campus provides the comforts of nature and the reassurance of serenity. Hiking trails through the winding hills and sporting facilities allow Clients to slow the mind and reinvigorate the body all at once.
Upon entrance to Creative Care Calabasas, (photo gallery) Clients are welcomed by a well-trained and empathetic team of treatment professionals. Within the first 48 hours of admission, medical staff and clinicians assess each Client. Clients will also meet with Mental Health Treatment Program Director, Dr. Alexandra Edwards. Dr. Edwards, has been a dedicated member of the Creative Care team since 1997. She offers vigilant support and artful advisement to the full Clinical Treatment Team.
During the earliest treatment hours, each new Client engages with the clinical team via a thorough clinical assessment. Additionally, Clients will promptly meet with the Creative Care Medical Team. This includes a consulting psychiatrist, registered nurses, licensed vocational nurses, therapists, counselors, and other ancillary staff members.
Under the direction of Dr. Edwards, the Creative Care Clinical Treatment Team meets weekly to take a deep-dive into the portrait and patterns of each Client. With regular and frequent whole-team communication, the staff develops treatment plans under the tutelage of clinical advice.
Staff observation and Client involvement create a dynamic clinical scheme with frequent feedback loop encouraged. While in treatment, each Client will participate in a ladder of therapeutic programming. We punctuate this with energetic activities to ensure a comprehensive experience.
We at Creative Care understand that no two Clients are alike. Each and every person has their own set of challenges and journey to recovery. The clinical team at Creative Care takes careful consideration in creating personalized treatment plans for each Client and incorporating groups in which each Client participates. Each Client will have three individual sessions with his/her therapist every week, as well as one meeting with our psychiatrist and psychiatric nurse practitioner. We cater to each Client’s individual needs and incorporate additional sessions into the Client’s treatment according to the clinical review. Each Client will also receive individual counseling and case management.
When appropriate, family members will be invited to participate in the treatment process in weekly phone calls with the primary therapist and in family therapy sessions. Much like the individual treatment plans, Creative Care tailors the family therapy program to each Client and family. Through open dialogue and communication, Creative Care’s clinicians work closely with family members to determine the most effective and appropriate time to integrate family members into the treatment process.
The clinicians at Creative Care have years of experience in working with Clients suffering from mental health issues. Our therapists are highly experienced and trained in a wide variety of therapeutic modalities and approaches. Our staff employs them all to best suit the needs of each individual Client. Creative Care therapists are intimately involved in every aspect of the Client treatment experience. We strive to ensure a feeling of safety and security for each Client through every facet of the process. This ranges from crisis management, family therapy, individual therapy sessions, legal issues, case management and more.
