The Harmony PlaceAddiction TreatmentMission & Philosophy

The core mission of Harmony Place is to provide superior care to our clients. We value compassion and care as channels to respect and dignity rarely experienced by those afflicted with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. With this philosophy in mind, we endeavor to be your preferred health care provider for alcohol and substance abuse treatment.

Our residential program prides itself on delivering a comprehensive, integrated clinical program. We combine proactive relapse prevention education with evidenced-based therapies such as CBT and DBT. In addition, we explore core issues utilizing psychodynamic theory, examine personal expression through experiential groups and draw from holistic modalities to foster comfort, satisfaction and motivation in recovery.

Addiction Treatment Vision

Harmony Place TreatmentVision Statement

At Harmony Place, our goal is to be the alcohol and substance abuse health care provider of choice – through compassionate and expert care with an emphasis on treating each individual with dignity.

Harmony Place is a California state-licensed treatment facility and a leader in evidence-based treatment for co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. We offer an integrated program that maximizes clinical service and education. Harmony Place provides top-tier yet cost-effective treatment by coordinating a system of sub-acute detox, co-ed residential, outpatient, transitional living and aftercare services that are aligned with our vision, spirit and clinical requirements.

Holistic Approach to Addiction Treatment

Treating addiction is so much more than helping an individual refrain from using a particular substance. Addiction is a problem that affects the mind, body and spirit.

Harmony Place believes in providing treatment that integrates proven holistic methods to foster recovery. These methods include 12-step facilitation, cognitive-behavioral techniques, motivational therapies and other techniques. Such supplemental holistic methods are important to addiction treatment, as they address core emotional and psychological issues.

What Is the Harmony Chord?

Harmony Place takes an integrated, evidence-based approach to addiction recovery. Our weekly program schedule is purposefully designed to educate the individual about the addiction, how the addiction manifests in them, and how it emerges in them after they are detoxed and free from substances.

Blending multiple modalities is meant to strike the right chord to motivate the addict to change. From admission to discharge, our structured treatment program supports effective treatment plan outcomes.

The Harmony Chord rises beyond the normal standard of care.

The multiple modalities provided in our program include:

  • Comprehensive Pre-Admission Assessments – reviewed and approved by a licensed health care practitioner
  • Nursing Assessments – completed by licensed LVNs and RNs (i.e. nursing assessment, nutritional assessment, PPD test, suicide risk assessment, pain assessment, CIWAs, and COWS)
  • Psychosocial Assessment
  • Patient History and Physical Assessment
  • Psychiatric Evaluation
  • Psychological Tests (i.e. MMPI, Beck inventories, etc.)
  • Individual Therapy – three sessions per week with licensed therapist
  • Group Therapy – more than 25 hours per week of structured group therapy facilitated by certified clinicians, including groups such as:
    • Process Groups
    • Didactic Educational Modules
    • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
    • Motivational Interviewing
    • Dialectical Behavior Therapy
    • Experiential Groups
    • Expressive Arts
    • Relapse Prevention Groups
    • Vocational Counseling
  • Family Therapy – individualized sessions with client as well as multi-family group
  • Adjunct Services – such as chiropractic care, acupuncture, massage, nutrition counseling, fitness, etc.
  • Support Group Meeting Attendance
  • Aftercare Planning
  • Alumni Groups

Continuum of Care

Detox and residential treatment is just the start of rehab at Harmony Place. We also value continuity of care, and to that end, we provide extended treatment in the form of PHP, intensive outpatient and outpatient levels of care. Our outpatient program is committed to preparing the individual for re-entry into a productive, healthy and sober life.

Whether you join us from the community or transfer from our residential treatment program into our spacious transitional living home, our primary focus is to restore self-respect and confidence so you can learn to live free from the ravages of addiction.

What makes Harmony Place addiction treatment center stand out?

We understand that finding the best addiction treatment center to meet your needs — and the needs of your family — can be challenging, and perhaps even overwhelming. If you’re looking for the highest standard of care, here are a few reasons why Harmony Place is unlike any other addiction rehab center:

  • We have contracted physicians and a psychiatrist who are directly involved in the care and education of our clients.
  • Three one-on-one sessions are held per week with a primary therapist.
  • Well-appointed accommodations await clients in both our residential and transitional living facilities.
  • High staff-to-client ratio at our residential facility – with a max of only 12 clients.
  • Optimal location in Los Angeles County fosters quiet, privacy and serenity.
  • Substantial family involvement that takes the form of family therapy as well as multi-family group education.
  • We accept most PPO insurance, and our staff enjoys providing insurance assistance.
  • Our team is equipped to offer integrated, customized care for addiction and related mental/behavioral health issues.

Do you view addiction as a disease?

We view addiction not as a singular event, but rather progressive disease that worsens over time. It is indiscriminate and destroys the lives of all that end up in its path. Residential treatment alone is helpful, as it gets you to a place of sobriety and stabilization as you adjust to a new way of life. But true long-term recovery is achieved when there is abstinence from drugs and alcohol, a release from addictive behaviors, and revitalization of physical, emotional and spiritual health.

The journey is not an easy one, but the Harmony Place promise to you is that we will provide comprehensive, full-service treatment to address your specific needs. We care for each individual through detox, residential treatment, extended treatment and transitional living. We have an outstanding clinical team of experienced professionals that collaborates through all phases of your treatment to ensure that you are building a strong foundation for a future more promising than the past.

Do you provide personalized treatment plans?

Certainly. If there’s one thing that’s true about addiction treatment, it’s that it’s not a one-size-fits-all process. This is why we do so much work on the front end to customize each client’s path to rehabilitation. (Look in the Harmony Chord information above to see all of the evaluations and assessments we perform upon admission.)

Not every client will need to participate in all of the therapies and activities we have to offer. Some clients may get a lot out of our experiential beach walks, for example, while others may not. Some clients may need their living accommodations a little more customized than others.

We do whatever we can to help each client get the most out of treatment, and so we customize individual treatment plans accordingly. Best of all, we don’t build out your treatment plan entirely according to our staff’s goals for you; we solicit input from both you and your family as well, making for a truly collaborative process.

What are your treatment facilities and staff like?

At both our residential and outpatient facilities, we have a knowledgeable and experienced team of professionals who have a great sense of compassion for every single person that comes to us for help. Our group of medically licensed health care professionals, certified specialists and degreed executives are all working in conjunction to do one thing: Help individuals overcome their addiction in a way that is effective, comfortable and safe.

Both facilities (located in the same area of LA County) are also dual diagnosis treatment centers, meaning we treat addictions that are co-occurring with other behavioral health problems such as anxiety, depression and eating disorders. No matter which substance abuse and mental health problems an individual may be suffering from, we can help them achieve long-lasting recovery.
