Treatment

Harmony Place Monterey has a one-of-a-kind approach to treatment.

Since hospital stays tend to be relatively short, and residential programs often focus on symptom stabilization, clients don’t have the opportunity to work on the deeper issues, such as post-traumatic stress, abuse suffered, emotional neglect, social anxiety, or intimacy struggles. What is missing from the continuum of care is partial hospitalization that would include life coaching, therapeutic community with peer support, and the option for transitional living. Harmony Place Monterey (HPM) was created to meet these needs.

At HPM, we focus on a small number of clients in a safe, intimate milieu with a 2- to-1 staff ratio. Being able to offer a more affordable treatment with a longer length of stay, clients are able to make significant changes in their lives, allowing for a relief of depression, anxiety, obsessive as well as addictive symptoms.

Our center offers a truly unique outpatient alternative as well as transitional living.

Specializing in trauma resolution therapies for combat veterans, sexual abuse survivors, and those suffering childhood neglect, our program is combined with optimal psychiatric medication (as needed) as well as includes family and couples work and individuals receive comprehensive and holistic treatments for their very specific issues.

Specialty treatments include targeted therapies for substance addictions, such as alcohol and/or drug abuse, as well as for process addictions, such as anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, Internet-porn addiction, as well for mental health issues, including unipolar and bipolar depression and phobic anxiety. With individualized treatment three times a week as well as individual sessions as needed with the psychiatrist, dietitian, and occupational therapist, clients have the benefit of a comprehensive treatment team. We also work closely with the referring therapists and are available to consult for after-care.

Our experience Is that clients benefit from certain interventions more than others. We, therefore, offer DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), Cognitive Reprocessing, Relapse Prevention, Refuge Recovery, Internal Family Systems (IFS), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Sexual Arousal Reconditioning, Imago Therapy, Gottman Relational Therapies, Affect-accelerated Therapy and Psychodrama/Improv.
