NEWPORT BEACH OUTPATIENT MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT PROGRAM

Newport Beach, CA

HOME / LOCATIONS / NEWPORT BEACH, CA

Virtual treatment available: DMA outpatient programs can also be accessed via online telehealth services.

This facility offers a day program (Monday through Friday) that includes both partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatment. We serve adolescents and adults, each with separate programming. Our program utilizes skill-based training groups of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), which involves breaking down skills into pillars of mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness. The program incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to challenge cognitive distortions and reframe faulty thinking patterns.

Our team works individually with patients and with their families to identify and support unique treatment planning based on personal needs and goals. We stress balance and authenticity, and consider ourselves an educational center for learning emotional intelligence. The program includes management of support medication, coordination with schools for adolescent patients, collaboration with outpatient providers, and reorganization of family dynamics to strengthen connections. The clinical team is experienced, dedicated, and each team member brings a unique therapeutic style to meet the needs of our patients.

The School Support Program is offered to young patients, where an education liaison supervises and supports them through their schoolwork. The education liaison also collaborates with the patient’s therapist to ensure they have the right environment in place for learning, which will in turn help them reintegrate into their school after treatment.

The Newport Beach facility is conveniently located just off the 73 freeway near Jamboree Boulevard and Bristol Avenue. We are situated in a complex of modern professional buildings in the heart of Orange County, moments from John Wayne airport and the University of California Irvine campus.

Insurances we accept at this location include but are not limited to Kaiser, Humana, Cigna, and Unicare. Please remember that the insurances we accept change frequently. Our insurance team will verify your coverage.
