Beginnings in Outpatient Treatment

Clearview Treatment Programs began as an outpatient treatment program in Los Angeles to help those struggling with addiction or mental illness. Clearview was also created as a bridge between 30-day residential treatment programs and home, to both reduce the chance of relapse and to help clients reintegrate into their communities before leaving treatment.

Clearview’s outpatient treatment program met and exceeded those goals, becoming one of the most long-standing outpatient programs in Southern California. Clearview’s Outpatient Treatment Center now includes individualized partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs to treat mental health disorders, addiction, and dual diagnosis.

Expansion to Treating Addiction with Co-Occurring Mental Health

In 2004, Clearview expanded its offerings into residential treatment and opened a residential extended care program in Venice Beach for adults of all genders who have a dual diagnosis of substance use disorder and mental illness.

This program was designed to treat complex co-occurring disorders, and to extend a client’s time in treatment to provide them more support and structure before returning home after a 30-day treatment program.

In 2005, Clearview opened its treatment center for addiction with co-occurring mental illness in Venice Beach. This program filled a need in Los Angeles for addressing complex co-occurring disorders in a primary care setting and helps clients build the skills necessary to successfully transition to the next phase of treatment while recovering from the symptoms of their conditions.

A decade later, these programs have evolved into premier evidence-based treatment programs that have helped hundreds of men and women succeed in recovery.

Specialized Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) Residential Treatment for Women

Clearview recognized that women with a borderline personality disorder (BPD) weren’t getting their needs met in other conventional treatment programs, they set out to create a program specifically designed for women with this disorder.

Clearview’s Women’s Mental Health program opened in 2008 in Venice Beach and has become one of the most renowned BPD treatment centers in the world. With its treatment foundation in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), our women’s program helps people of diverse genders learn skills for better managing their BPD symptoms and ensuring their sustained recovery.

Venice Beach

Why Venice Beach?

Both of our residential treatment centers are in Venice Beach, less than one mile from the coast. While many treatment programs on the coast are secluded, Clearview recognized that clients benefit from being immersed in a real-world environment.

With its locations in Venice Beach, clients can confront triggers while in a safe residential setting. They can also focus on gradual re-emersion into the community via passes and outings. Clients can get assistance with work, school, and volunteer opportunities in the nearby area.

Involvement in the Community

Clearview’s commitment to treatment extends beyond its physical programs and their skilled clinical teams often provide education in the form of workshops and in-service trainings to other clinicians around the country. They are also regularly selected to speak at national conferences to share their expertise and partner with a variety of nonprofits, including the National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder (NEABPD) and the National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI).

Part of the Odyssey Psychiatric Network

In 2020, Clearview joined the Odyssey family as part of their growing Psychiatric Network to help Clearview continue to expand their clinically-excellent services and open additional locations including their outpatient locations in Woodland Hills and Pasadena, CA.

We’re excited about what the future holds and are dedicated to continually providing the highest quality clinical care for those in need throughout the nation and world.
