Welcome To Psyclarity, Studio City’s #1 Behavioral Health Clinic

PsyClarity specializes in behavioral health conditions such as substance use disorders as well as mental health disorders. We’ve developed a safe, positive atmosphere that is conducive to health and well-being. Our clinicians rely on medically sanctioned, evidence-based therapies that have the backing of the health community in the treatment of behavioral and mental health disorders. These treatments are safe and effective. 

We complement traditional mental and behavioral health therapies with holistic treatments that support overall health and wellness. By combining medical and holistic treatments, we’re able to provide the well-rounded support that clients need to build a strong recovery foundation and to manage their condition successfully should it be a chronic condition as many are.

At PsyClarity Health, we often speak in terms of condition management rather than cure. This is because many disorders are not ‘curable’ but they can be managed so successfully that patients enjoy reduced or even eliminated symptoms. For example, addiction is believed to be incurable, but many people arrive at a state that’s similar to ‘disease remission.’ They’re able to manage the condition so successfully that they might be said to have achieved long-term recovery. 

Our goal is to help patients manage their condition successfully so that it impedes their life and goals as little as possible. Learning to manage symptoms effectively and cope with their condition in the healthiest ways can help them achieve a level of wellness that absolutely improves their quality of life. 

If you are struggling with a mental illness or substance use disorder like drug addiction or alcohol addiction, you can get help to manage your condition and improve your mental health. We understand the challenges associated with these conditions, which is why we strongly believe in tailoring treatment to each person’s unique needs. Our treatments address each aspect of a person’s life that their condition touches. With high-quality mental or behavioral health treatment in Studio City at PsyClarity, you can find effective support from our caring and competent clinicians.

We Help People Struggling With Dual Diagnosis (Addiction To Drugs & or Alcohol as well as Mental Health Issues) Beat Addiction

Dual diagnosis involves a substance use disorder and a mental illness. Sometimes referred to as concurrent disorders, dual diagnosis requires simultaneous treatment for best condition management results. Managing either one of these conditions can be difficult, but when facing both, individuals can feel overwhelmed. Treatment begins with a careful psychological assessment so that clinicians can recommend the ideal course of treatment that addresses both disorders, helping clients gain relief from unpleasant symptoms and then learn how to manage their dual diagnosis going forward. 

Dual diagnosis is not rare. Among people who have a substance use disorder, about one-third also have a mental health disorder such as depression or anxiety. Managing both together is important because if one is ignored, it can impede the treatment of the other. Both conditions are separate but they both affect one another. 

In fact, one often is a precipitating factor of the other. For instance, someone who abuses drugs and alcohol can increase their risk of developing a mental health condition. Alcohol and drug addiction can change the chemistry of the brain, which can lead to mental illness. Conversely, someone who has a mental illness may find themselves ‘self-medicating’ with recreational drugs or alcohol in order to contend with the symptoms of their condition. Their continued abuse of drugs and alcohol can pave the path to addiction.

At PsyClarity Health, we specialize in dual diagnosis treatment. If you are struggling with one or even if you suspect you may have a dual diagnosis, you can rely on us for treatment and ongoing support as you learn to manage the condition and regain control over your life and health.

Our Trauma-Informed Therapies:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a medically sanctioned form of talk therapy. It’s designed to help patients understand the connections that exist between their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors–particularly their negative behaviors. Learning to manage one’s negative thoughts and feelings in healthier ways allows individuals to control their actions. This form of psychotherapy is widely favored to treat many mental and behavioral health disorders, including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, eating disorders, and more.

Cognitive Processing Therapy

Cognitive processing therapy is a 12-session process that’s similar to cognitive behavioral therapy. This form of treatment helps clients cope with past traumatic experiences that continue to affect their present lives. Therapists work closely with clients, helping them to identify problematic thoughts and feelings so that they can develop strategies to modify them–not to bury them but, rather, to cope with them in healthy and effective ways.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) is closely related to cognitive behavioral therapy. This form of treatment, however, has a different focus. DBT therapists work with clients to develop stronger distress tolerance. Being able to tolerate negative emotions better will make them less vulnerable to experiencing a condition relapse. DBT is commonly used to treat conditions like substance use disorders and borderline personality disorder. 

Diverse Psychoeducational Groups

Psyclarity Health features diverse psychoeducational groups that have a strong educational component, helping clients understand their condition. During these sessions, group participants will learn many new strategies for coping with their symptoms and managing their condition. Discussion and information sharing form the crux of these group meetings.


EMDR, which is an acronym for eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, is effective for treating clients suffering from past trauma, especially in conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder. During EMDR treatment, clinicians will ask patients questions related to their traumatic experiences while asking them to perform specific eye movements. The eye movement causes the brain to shift where the memory is stored. The movement of the memory allows clients to cope with it more successfully.

Holistic Wellness

At PsyClarity Health, we combine evidence-based mental and behavioral health treatments with holistic therapies that support recovery and whole-person health and wellness. Therapies and activities like nutrition, yoga, and physical fitness can benefit overall health as well as support the healthy management of the specific mental health or behavioral health condition in question.

Life Skills

Some clients never learned or fell out of practice certain life skills that support healthy living. Developing life skills supports a healthy lifestyle, which is conducive to effective condition management. Learning to manage time or communicate better can enhance daily living, which helps reduce the risk of symptom flareup or relapse.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is an increasingly popular form of substance abuse treatment that is helpful for treating specific addictions, including addiction to opioids and alcohol. MAT isn’t a cure, but it can reduce problematic symptoms that may trigger withdrawal like cravings. Fewer withdrawal symptoms and cravings allow people to focus more fully on their other therapies, which allows them to build a stronger recovery foundation.

Art and Music Therapy

Art and music therapy are alternative forms of treatment that are often used to treat various mental and behavioral health disorders, including post-traumatic stress disorder and substance use disorders. Rather than through words, clients are encouraged to express their feelings and thoughts in art or music. Many people who are less comfortable with psychotherapy find these alternative forms of treatment highly effective for helping them cope with their condition. 

Family Therapy

For many clients, family plays a crucial role in their lives, but families can also be impacted by their loved one’s condition. During family therapy, therapists work with the family unit, helping each member cope with their individual issues. Families learn proper methods for supporting their loved ones. Therapists can also help them repair relationship problems or relate to one another in healthier ways. 

Group Therapy

Group therapy is a cornerstone of many treatment programs for mental and behavioral health conditions. Group therapy sessions are led by a clinician and may be associated with any number of treatment approaches. During sessions, therapists focus on topics that relate to the group rather than the individual’s specific experiences or needs.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy plays an essential role in the treatment of mental and behavioral health conditions. During these treatment sessions, which also cover many different treatment approaches, clients and therapists can discuss specific aspects of the individual’s condition and related issues. 

Neurofeedback Therapy

Neurofeedback therapy uses brain waves in order to help people have more control of their feelings and thoughts. Clinicians rely on electroencephalography machines to help them measure brain waves. Then, using positive feedback, clinicians help clients more effectively manage their thoughts and feelings, resulting in better condition management.

Somatic Therapy

Somatic therapy focuses on connections between the mind and body. Through various physical activities, one may experience improved mental health symptom relief. Forms of somatic therapy include yoga and movement.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Clients who do not respond well to first-line treatments for depression may be prescribed transcranial magnetic stimulation. This is a non-invasive approach to treating depression. Clinicians employ magnetic waves to reduce depressive symptoms. With fewer symptoms, patients often find it easier to focus on additional forms of therapy.

We Help Treat These Addictions:

Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol addiction impacts more than 15 million people nationwide. Alcohol use disorders also have a high relapse rate, making the treatment highly recommended. Alcohol addiction treatment typically includes medical detox as well as inpatient and/or outpatient rehab treatment. 

Meth Addiction

Meth, more formally known as methamphetamine, is an addictive stimulant with a tremendously high relapse rate (over 93%). Treatment generally includes medical detox, inpatient and/or outpatient treatment, and aftercare. 

Benzodiazepine Addiction

Benzodiazepines like Xanax are drugs that are primarily prescribed to treat anxiety; however, they are associated with a high degree of drug abuse. Benzos are extremely addictive. Someone who has developed an addiction may need medical detox but certainly requires rehab treatment. 

Opioid Addiction

Opioids like heroin and prescription painkillers like fentanyl and oxycodone are among the most dangerous and deadly addictive drugs. Treatment of opioid addiction usually includes medical detox, inpatient and/or outpatient treatment, and aftercare. Many people may benefit from MAT as part of their individualized opioid addiction treatment plan.

Cocaine Addiction

Cocaine is a stimulant that’s widely abused. Available in powder form or as a rock (crack cocaine), cocaine is addictive and dangerous. Treatment for cocaine addiction involves medical detox (usually) as well as rehab treatments. 

Prescription Drug Addiction

Many prescription drugs are highly effective for treating various medical conditions or symptoms but have a downside: they’re addictive. Prescription drug addiction is as dangerous and potentially deadly as an illicit drug addiction as overdose rates demonstrate. Depending on the prescription drug in question, clients may need medical detox, inpatient and/or outpatient therapy, and aftercare programming.

Co-Occurring Disorders

Cooccuring disorders often refer to a dual diagnosis, which indicates the presence of a substance use disorder and mental health condition. However, the term is sometimes applied to people who have more than one mental health disorder. People may also have more than one addiction, which is also referred to as polydrug addiction. Treatment should address each condition simultaneously for best condition management results.

Sleeping Pills Addiction

Sleeping pills may be prescribed to treat insomnia or sleep disorders, but these drugs are highly addictive. Sleeping pill overdose continues to be a major cause of emergency room visits and accidental overdose deaths. Treatment for a sleeping pill addiction may include medical detox as well as rehab therapies.

Crack Addiction

Crack is the rock form of cocaine. Extremely addictive, crack delivers a short-lived, but euphoric high. Treatment for crack addiction usually requires clinically supervised detox and rehab therapies–either on an inpatient or outpatient basis. Aftercare is also recommended.

Stimulant Addiction

There are many addictive stimulant drugs. Stimulants like the prescription drug Adderall are often abused because they promote increased energy and alertness. Depending on the severity of the addiction, clients may need inpatient treatment. Milder addictions are better suited to outpatient treatment programs.


ADHD, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, is a condition that causes symptoms such as impulsive behavior, hyperactivity, and difficulty maintaining focus. Clinicians treat this disorder with medication and psychotherapy designed to help clients manage their symptoms more effectively.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive-compulsive disorder is a mental health condition that’s characterized by repetitive thoughts and behaviors that are extremely difficult to control. Treatment generally includes medication as well as evidence-based therapies. 

Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety disorder is characterized by persistent worry and fear. People may experience frequent feelings of dread and panic. Treatment usually includes medication and psychotherapy. 


A phobia is a mental health condition that is characterized by irrational and extreme fear, such as fear of spiders or heights. Treatment may include medication and psychotherapy.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is a mood disorder that usually involves periods of deep depression and periods of manic energy. Treatment includes medications that promote mood stability and psychotherapy. 


Post-traumatic stress disorder, PTSD, may develop after a person witnesses or experiences powerful trauma or periods of trauma. Symptoms of PTSD may include difficulty focusing, nightmares, panic, depression, and mood swings. Clinicians often prescribe medication along with evidence-based and holistic forms of therapy.

Borderline Personality Disorder

Borderline personality disorder is characterized by disturbed ways of thinking and an inability to regulate emotions or modify behaviors. Treatment includes psychotherapy and, often, medication. 

Schizoaffective Disorder

People with schizoaffective disorder experience schizophrenic symptoms like hallucinations or delusions as well as symptoms of a mood disorder such as depression. Treatment involves medication, typically, and psychotherapy.


Depression is characterized by persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness. People may feel fatigue or struggle to perform daily activities. Treatment may include medication and a combination of evidence-based and holistic therapies.

Sleep Deprivation

Sleep deprivation can detract from mental and physical health. Clinicians will help clients develop the root cause of their sleep issues in order to treat them and promote a pattern of healthy sleeping. 

Dual Diagnosis

Dual diagnosis involves a substance use disorder and mental health condition. For example, someone with a dual diagnosis may have depression and alcohol addiction. Treatment for dual diagnosis may include medical detox, but certainly a combination of mental health and substance abuse treatments such as medication and psychotherapy.


Suicide is a risk factor associated with various mental and behavioral health conditions. Clinicians may treat suicidal thoughts with hospitalization, medication, and psychotherapy. 

Eating Disorder

Eating disorders are governed by strong feelings of compulsion and extreme lifestyle choices associated with diet and food. Clinicians use forms of psychotherapy to help clients confront and change irrational patterns of thought in order to promote healthier behaviors. Medication may also be prescribed.
