NEW Warehouse Space for Teen Treatment

 We believe Teens need a creative space with freedom to play and socialize as part of Mental Health and Addiction IOP treatment.  We moved our facility from a traditional office building in Sherman Oaks to an amazing creative warehouse space in Van Nuys with a climbing wall, ping pong table, and room for kids and parents to play while doing the hard emotional work.(see pictures at the bottom of email) We are now inviting kids, parents, professionals and friends to come and experience the space on Wednesday 10 October from 5 – 9pm while we talk about Teen Anxiety and Angst.  We will be screening the new documentary Angst, a movie about Teen Mental Health where Olympic Swimmer and Champion Michael Phelps shares the challenges with Anxiety he faced as a teen.

Insight Proudly Supports our K-9 Officers In This Year’s Event

Teen Help Pasadena

It is the time of year again to celebrate and support our partners at the Los Angeles County Police Canine Association (LACPCA), the non profit group created jointly by the Pasadena and Los Angeles City Police Departments. This will be the 17th annual event for the nonprofit group that supports K-9 officers. The event is open to the public this coming Saturday, August 6 at Santa Monica College and runs from 1:00pm to 3:00pm.  For more information, please call 310-390-2472.

This event is a great way for us all to give back. The funds raised at the will help support:

  1.  Families of police officers who are injured or killed in the line of duty.
  2.  Care for retired police service dogs. LACPCA provides veterinary care for retired service dogs.
  3.  Training programs for Police K-9 units, which may include outside experts, equipment acquisition, and seminars.
  4.  The Guide Dogs of America, the organization who trains guide dogs for the blind. Providing for medical costs and a place for them to live when they retire.

Anthony Lopez, Founder and Program Director of Insight Treatment Programs, said Insight has been a proud donor and sponsor of LACPCA for many years.

“LACPCA is a wonderful organization. Insight Treatment Programs has been working together since its inception with both Pasadena and Los Angeles City Police Departments,” Lopez said, “We have an Insight Treatment Program Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) in both cities, and over the past many years both of our police departments have worked closely with us.”

Lopez hopes to see another excellent turnout this year.  He writes:

My experience is that our brave men, women and our beautiful doggies in blue are not just here to uphold and enforce our laws. In my three decades of working with young people who suffer from mental health and substance abuse problems, we sometimes have no other choice but to reach out to our local police departments for a helping hand.  This has happened numerous times throughout the years.  Although this is not always the case, it is reassuring that we can call upon our fine officers anytime.

When we’ve worked together as a team, it has often proven to be the difference between a young person being incarcerated or dying– or providing the treatment these young people deserve a shot at.  We cherish the trust and the relationships we have built over the years with these departments.  Once in a while, there will be a need for these fine officers to intervene in situations at one of our facilities or at a patient’s home.  As part of intervention, these young people must often decide between going to jail or seeking treatment.  Our passionate team of counselors and therapists have worked alongside dedicated and compassionate police officers to provide the care these kids need.  Our goal is to help put these young lives back together.

Insight Treatment Programs and I are most grateful for the compassion exhibited by our partner police departments in Los Angeles and Pasadena.  I kindly ask that members of the public come out with their families for an educational and exciting afternoon this Saturday at Santa Monica College.  The support you show our law enforcement officers and their canine companions is much-needed because they put their lives on the line for us each day.  I hope to see you there.  🙂

 

Kind Regards,
Anthony Lopez
