Many of those seeking the proper mental health treatment for themselves or their family members have questions about the aspects of our program here at SoCal Mental Health. We like to provide as many answers as we can to make the process as easy as possible.
SoCal Mental Health provides a transitional residential program designed to serve adults who require mental health treatment and cannot care for themselves in an independent living situation. Our goal is to provide an alternative to acute psychiatric hospitalization and institutional care based on the principles of residential community-based treatment. This includes high-quality care provided in a home-like setting with clinical supervision 24 hours a day, seven days a week in a treatment assistance setting. At all levels, community participation is a critical element that provides the best outcomes.
The amount of time that clients spend with us varies, depending on their condition and needs going forward. Our experienced clinicians conduct one-on-one evaluations to identify what areas need to be addressed. Based on the results of these sessions, we can determine what treatment path is right for you.

We work with strategic partners that provide detoxification protocols at outside locations for those who join our program and are experiencing both primary mental health issues and substance abuse issues. These medical facilities are equipped with the necessary resources to minimize challenging aspects of detox, such as managing withdrawal symptoms, and make the experience as comfortable as possible. Once you complete your treatment at one of our cooperating facilities, you can begin the healing process here with us.
The Community Residential Treatment System (CRTS) and services offered here at SoCal Mental Health aren’t just an alternative to inpatient hospitalization; they embody the concepts envisioned by mental health advocates for a compassionate care system that should available to individuals struggling with cognitive and behavioral disorders. From the 1963 Community Mental Health Centers Act signed by President John F. Kennedy to the Olmstead Decision of 1999, the federal government’s intent has been for states to provide community-based services in the most accessible environment possible. This enduring dream inspires us and it is in our hearts as we shape our program to meet the mental health needs of our community.
