Our Mission

The Canyon at Santa Monica offers an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) that can help you or your loved one mend broken relationships, sustain sobriety and build a new, productive and meaningful life. Our unique, award-winning approach blends compassionate care with research-based methods to treat both substance abuse and the underlying emotional or mental health disorders that can often be the catalyst for addictive behaviors. We help heal the whole person – mind, body and spirit – for lasting success. Here are just a few reasons to choose The Canyon at Santa Monica:

  • We provide excellent entry-level treatment. The Canyon at Santa Monica’s outpatient program provides high quality entry-level treatment that will not disrupt an individual’s daily life.
  • We help those stepping down from residential treatment. When recently discharged from a residential treatment facility, individuals often wish to continue their recovery program with less structured therapy in a real-life setting. The Canyon at Santa Monica allows them to do this, offering a number of effective services that can help individuals maintain their sobriety.
  • We can work in collaboration with other providers. Some patients have been supported by individual therapists, family therapists, life coaches, interventionists, employee assistance program providers or legal support prior to their admission. The Canyon at Santa Monica’s team works with these individuals to maintain already established supportive relationships for successful, lasting recovery.

All treatment is not created equal. Our integrated program has been specifically designed to meet the multifaceted recovery needs of individuals with co-occurring issues, both mental health and addiction, which impact the whole person—mind, body and spirit. The Canyon at Santa Monica employs a variety of evidence-based treatment practices, and research has proven that our patients are more than twice as likely to maintain sobriety one year after treatment than those who attend traditional programs. While the goal is always the same—wellness—we use a variety of methods to help you achieve this end result. Services range from individual psychoeducational groups and process therapy groups to a wide range of holistic offerings that support overall health and healing. Additional offerings like our vocational counseling, educational assistance, multi-family intensive weekend group and professionals’ group make The Canyon at Santa Monica unique.

Multi-Family Weekend Group

Our multi-family intensive weekend group is a two-day program for patients, spouses, parents, siblings and partners. It consists of five elements:

1. Assessments of patients and family members for their need and readiness to accept changes in their lives.

2. Group therapy to help the family to realize that they are not alone in their experiences and that they can set healthy boundaries for themselves.

3. A structured intervention that allows participants, with the support and guidance of a trained clinician, to share how the addiction-related behaviors have impacted their relationships.

4. Informal interaction with other family members. While this element may seem inconsequential, we believe that it is a vital element for success. When family members share intimate information with one another they are more apt to trust and bond.

5. Relapse prevention planning to assist the family in generalizing lessons learned in the program.
