Improving Quality of Life by Healing the Mind
WELCOME TO BEL AIR HOME
Situated in the beautifully tranquil and exclusive hills of Bel Air, The Bel Air Home is a specialized residential mental health treatment program with expertise in treating complex psychiatric issues. Treatment is provided to only 6 clients at a time to provide highly individualized attention.
We provide intensive care that results in excellent outcomes and improved quality of life in a loving atmosphere.
We are proud to be one of the few double credentialed mental health programs, licensed and certified for crisis stabilization by both the California Department of Healthcare Services and the Department of Social Services. Our commitment to care quality is further evidenced by our accreditation by the Joint Commission for Healthcare Facilities.
Our emphasis is understanding the root cause of psychiatric problems. Our philosophy is to start from scratch by painstakingly reviewing all past histories and treatments to determine the most effective course forward. Our multidisciplinary team consisting of psychiatrist, medical doctor, therapist, counselors, pain management specialist and nurses manage every case together and collaborate to produce the best long term outcome for our clients. We invite input from loved ones and care takers as we develop a wholistic treatment program.
Our physicians are some of the top in the field of behavioral health, having had many years of experience as medical directors of hospitals as well as residential and outpatient treatment programs.
Physician & Medical Services
Our board certified physicians provide a wide spectrum of mental health and behavioral health treatments. Each client is under the care of a psychiatrist and internal medicine doctor during their entire treatment course. For our dual diagnosis clients a board certified addiction doctor will also provide care. Our physicians have decades of experience and are consistently regarded as the highest caliber clinicians in their respective fields. Our medical director has been the head of three hospital units. Each client is seen by a physician multiple times per week. Our philosophy is to try to minimize medications which can sedate and cause side effects, and maximize advanced therapeutics.
The right diet and nutrition can make all the difference in the mood and mental health of our clients. For that reason, we have a dedicated chef that cooks delicious healthy meals and snacks with proven cognitive benefits. Our residents are taught everyday how to prepare and cook meals by our chef so they may be capable of preparing their own healthy meals for themselves at home .
Intensive high quality therapy is the cornerstone of our model for long term behavioral changes and psychiatric well being. Each client is provided many hours of group and individual therapy every day of the week by expert clinicians. Through advanced methods with proven efficacy such as cognitive behavioral therapy our goal is to change unhelpful thoughts and behaviors, improve emotional self regulation, and develop personal coping strategies that help with problem solving.
As part of our goal to foster loving relationships for our clients, we also provide couples relationship therapy and family therapy.
Conditions We Treat
The Bel Air Home is designed for treatment of all mental health disorders. Our program has been dual credentialed by state health departments to allow for the treatment of advanced mental health disorders. This program is also an alternative to psychiatric hospitalization or for those who want to continue long term treatment after a hospitalization. Below is a list of some of the common diagnoses we treat:
Undiagnosed mood disorders
What Sets Us Apart
Not all mental health treatment programs are the same. Bel Air Home is designated as an advanced mental health crisis stabilization program and is one of the few programs that has a dual license & certification by two state health accreditation bodies in addition to a national accreditation organization. Thus, we are able to provide the highest level of residential mental health treatment and we can treat complex issues. We have the highest staff to client ratio of any category of mental health treatment program offered by the state. Because we have higher standards, our patients receive superior care. We also offer highly advanced therapeutics that other programs do not have expertise in, such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for resistant depression.
Treatment For Couples
The Bel Air Home accepts couples who both want to receive mental health treatment together. Our intimate setting allows couples to receive individualized treatment while supporting each other and strengthening their bonds. Our relationship counseling addresses issues such as poor communication, neglect and conflict to help couples resolve their problems and recognize their value to each other.
Our mission is to foster independence, teach life skills and
improve health through goal oriented activities that are relaxing
and enjoyable. Below is a sample of such activities we provide
Instructive meal preparation and active cooking with our professional house chef
Aerobic & fitness classes
Motivational speaker series
Mental health disorders such as depression can be caused by or made worse by chronic pain syndromes. That is why we provide a pain management option as part of our mental health program. Our expert physician has over a decade of experience treating various types of pain including nerve, orthopedic and spine pain. We can also work closely with your orthopedic or spine surgeon to develop a successful treatment plan.
Our intensive outpatient program (IOP) provides office based mental health treatment at our beautiful and tranquil location in Bel Air that is not 24 hour residential care. Patients choose outpatient treatment typically because they can not take time off work or school for residential treatment. You may continue living at home and come in for treatment during the week. Diagnoses that we treat are the same as our residential program and include depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, trauma & PTSD and eating disorders. We use the same evidence-based modalities in our outpatient program that we use for our residential program. Treatment is provided by our multidisciplinary team of top psychologists, psychiatrists and therapists.
Schedules for our outpatient program are customized to meet the intensity and type of treatment that is required. We offer different times to meet the needs of those working or going to school. Typically, treatment is three hours per day, five days per week for five weeks OR three days per week for eight weeks.
