Our Mission

California Psychiatric Transitions aims to provide a safe and secure facility while maintaining a therapeutic environment. With the aid of our creative, compassionate, and professional staff along with our highly structured program, we aim to achieve a supportive setting for our residents to meet their rehabilitation needs.

Our Programs

Main Program

CPT is dedicated to addressing specific psychiatric needs of the mental health community as well as developing self-reliant individuals with good communication and social skills. CPT employs a highly structured daily program that allows for both developmental growth and self-reliance. The daily program assists residents with rudimentary skills including activities of daily living and interactive groups. Cognitive sessions focusing on such topics as: anger management, medication awareness, and impulse control provide necessary tolls for each resident to realize their potential.

The Program examines the progress of each resident as it pertains to their needs and gauges their individual success. The program provides a weekly schedule of group therapy sessions, conducted by the Staff Psychiatrist, the Director or Nursing, Team Leader(s) and staff. These sessions help identify and isolate resident concerns, progress, reoccurring issues, and gauge the overall progress of the unit. In addition to group therapy, CPT acknowledges the vital importance of the one-on-one sessions. These sessions, also referred to as “Resident Staffing”, are designed to delve further into the root cause of behavior as well as the specific needs of the individual resident, addressing behavioral issues, medication changes, and program compliance.
