Los Angeles Addiction Treatment Outpatient Rehab
Create Recovery Center Outpatient Treatment Center Los Angeles, CA
Our holistic evidence-based approach is catered to individuals, taking into account their unique relationship with substances, mental health history, and personal circumstances. Using a wide variety of therapeutic modalities, from group therapy to cognitive behavioral therapy, our clients make strides rapidly as they come to a better understanding of both themselves and their place in the world. But it’s not all self-reflection. While most find that examining the underlying nature of their addictions to be revelatory, the skills and tools that they learn in the process provide them with an even profounder sense of empowerment. Many individuals arrive at Create Recovery Center broken down and hopeless, but most end up looking back at that so-called “bottom” as the moment they began a process of radical transformation.
People who have tried and failed to stay sober multiple times have probably already begun to suspect that long term sobriety is about more than just staying away from problematic substances. Physical abstinence is a great beginning, but without a proper program of recovery relapse is often just a few short months — or even days — away. Create Recovery Center aims to provide individuals with the life strategies and tools they need to avoid a demoralizing relapse. And not just avoid a relapse. Because sobriety is about more than just gritting your teeth and saying no to drugs. Sobriety is about living a happy and fulfilling life for years to come. That’s why Create Recovery Center works with our clients to develop long term plans and helps them take the steps necessary to reach their goals. We suspect that’s also why so many of our graduates stay in touch with us years after becoming sober.
Create Recovery Center offers a range of outpatient programs for individuals with different needs and means.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Partial hospitalization programs are the ideal choice for someone whose addiction has reached a severe point. Our PHP program is both highly supportive and highly structured so that no one is left behind. Requiring attendance for approximately 6 hours a day most days of the week, our partial hospitalization programs allow individuals to receive psychiatric and medical support on top of a program of recovery. While coordinating with psychiatrists, your case worker will help you develop and meet short term goals that enable you to make rapid-fire progress towards getting your feet on the ground. For individuals who need housing, we are happy to make arrangements with local sober living homes so that people can maintain their growth 24/7 in a safe, sober environment.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Intensive outpatient programs are the second highest level of care we offer, with clients participating in our IOP program for 3-4 hours a day for about half the week. Using a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy, group therapy, and skills-training workshops, individuals in Create Recovery Center’s IOP can begin coming to a better understanding of the underlying issues behind their addictions and develop skills and tools that enable them to tackle life — and not be tackled by life. By the end of a person’s IOP program, they will have a solid foundation and be well-prepared to transition to a lower level of care.
Outpatient Program (OP)
Outpatient programs are ideal for individuals who are transitioning from a higher level of care, such as an IOP or inpatient treatment center, but want to continue putting their recovery first. Our outpatient program is also a great option for someone who needs the care and support of a treatment facility but does not have the flexibility to commit half the day to a treatment program. Requiring only a few hours, 1-2 times each week, our clients are free to make use of our resource center while upholding commitments to family, work, or school. It is the philosophy of the staff at Create Recovery Center that recovery from addiction and mental health disorders is about being able to thrive in the world, and our outpatient program is an invaluable resource for anyone who has already begun the process of rebuilding a life. We’re here to help you build it even more.
What We Treat
Create Recovery Center treats a range of personal issues, including substance use disorders, mental health disorders, and impulse control disorders. Despite our expertise and years of experience successfully treating these problems, we prefer to treat individuals who are suffering as unique cases, rather than applying a label and trying to make it fit. Pain is complicated, personal, and intimate. It is common for one person’s experience of a disorder to lie on a different part of the spectrum than another’s.

Living in Los Angeles
Lying between the Pacific Ocean, towering mountains, and wide deserts is the city of Los Angeles. With an ever-growing population of 3,990,456, it is the second most populated city in the United States after New York City. Los Angeles is known as the birthplace and industrial powerhouse of the entertainment industry. Partly due to its hospitable Mediterranean climate, Los Angeles became the ideal place to shoot films in the early 20th century. Today, Los Angeles continues to be the home of a wide range of celebrities and creative professionals, though other industries, like technology, aerospace, manufacturing, and finance are also dominant in the city. Tourists are drawn to Los Angeles for its culture, sprawling metropolis, and Hollywood history. People are also continually motivated to move to Los Angeles, due to its reputation as a place where dreams come true.
Neighborhoods We Serve
Create Recovery Center, situated in West Los Angeles, is centrally located to provide services to people in diverse neighborhoods both in and around Los Angeles County. While most people attending our outpatient programs live at home, people with unstable family circumstances, severe addictions, and other difficulties often find themselves struggling. Home life should be safe, supportive, and trigger-free to ensure recovery. For that reason, Create Recovery Center maintains relationships with sober living homes throughout Los Angeles County and will arrange a placement for anyone who needs help in their home life. Neighborhoods we serve include but are not limited to:
Drug Abuse in Los Angeles
Los Angeles has historically struggled with substance abuse, due to a range of factors both sociological and geographical. High poverty levels throughout the city drive many people to turn to drugs and alcohol as short term remedies for their suffering. Even in the higher echelons of society, especially in the entertainment industry and its periphery, a culture of partying and drug use leads many people down the path to addiction. As a result, drugs and alcohol are pervasive at every level of the city.
Criminal activity surrounding substances is also high in Los Angeles County. Los Angeles’ proximity to the Mexican border is a major factor. Drug cartels moving substances up from South America often pass through and sell their products in Los Angeles. The government of the United States classifies Los Angeles as a High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA), meaning it is an essential hub for criminals selling and distributing narcotics. While drug cartels from outside the country are in large part responsible for the sale of methamphetamine, heroin, and cocaine, business is booming within the city as well, with small-scale marijuana distributors and methamphetamine producers making enormous profits often under the radar.
Los Angeles is also often considered the birthplace of the crack cocaine epidemic. Crack cocaine, use of which surged in the 80s and 90s, is a more addictive and readily available form of cocaine. As it spread throughout Los Angeles, lives and communities were destroyed. Not only did crime from homicides to theft go up, but overdoses and hospital visits destroyed lives and overtaxed the medical infrastructure of the city. While the crack epidemic has died down somewhat since the 90s, Los Angeles continues to be a center for wide scale drug addiction, and now faces a major reckoning with the opioid epidemic.
