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.

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 also 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, and 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 causes of behavior as well as the specific needs of the individual resident, addressing behavioral issues, medication changes, and program compliance.

Re-Entry Program

The Re-Entry Program is a twenty two (22) bed unit. The focus on this program is learning skills associated with independent living such as cooking groups, vocational rehabilitation, and independently managing laundry.
The program also offers the resident vocational rehabilitation around the facility. This group offers the residents many different jobs, such as assisting staff with basic janitorial duties, landscaping projects, and a gardening group where the residents are responsible for routine maintenance and seasonal upkeep of the flowers and/or vegetables.
This program also focuses on personal money management. Each resident is more active in how they manage their own finances. Some other individual programs include specialized cooking groups where the resident learns about food preparation and the importance of making healthy choices along with a thorough understanding of safety precautions while doing so. The clients also have the opportunity to participate in doing their own laundry.
When our residents reach the Re-Entry placement and have demonstrated overall stability in all facets of their rehabilitative care, placing agencies typically start looking for least restrictive placements where the resident can continue to grow and integrate back into the community.

Disruptive Behavioral Unit

The mission of the Disruptive Behavioral Unit program is to provide individuals an intensive therapeutic program that will focus directly on disruptive behaviors. These behaviors inhibit treatment and have the potential to affect other residents’ progress. Placing individuals that are disruptive in one common area allows CPT to formulate and implement specific types of treatment plans designed to identify the stressors that may be causing the disruptive behaviors. This highly structured program creates an atmosphere that minimizes distraction and focuses on recovery.

A Board Certified Forensic Psychiatrist conducts 1-on-1 staffing sessions as needed, addressing behavioral issues, medication changes, and program compliance. The psychiatrist also provides weekly group therapy sessions that gauge the overall progress of the unit. The unit at full capacity has a very high staffing ratio which provides the attention and rehabilitative skills necessary for a quicker recovery.

In addition to a high staffing ratio, the twenty-four hour nursing staff provides medications necessary to reduce agitation levels as needed, as well as activity personnel to provide group and leisure activities. A Team Leader and Program Clerk are also assigned to the unit for treatment plan implementation, progress reviews, and quarterly reporting.

The behaviors that are deemed severely disruptive and counterproductive to treatment include, but are not limited to the following:
Assaultive Behavior
Property Damage
Hygienically Inappropriate
Treatment Plan Non-Compliance

Individuals whose symptoms have been stabilized maintain “continuity of care” by being admitted directly into the MHRC main program. A proven track record of success helps reinforce the individual treatment plan, reduce the recurrence of disruptive behavior, and promote successful rehabilitation.

Diversion Program

The Diversion Program is designed to serve court-ordered diversion and Incompetent to Stand Trial-Penal Code 1370 (IST 1370) individuals. The individuals in this program have been incarcerated and are unable to stand trial due to a mental illness or a mental illness with a co-occurring developmental disability. The program goal is to use a structured daily program to allow for competency restoration and diversionary programs by treating these individuals, CPT can assess whether or not an individual is competent to stand trial or is in need of further psychiatric evaluation and treatment. The daily program assists residents with rudimentary skills including activities of daily living and interactive/cognitive groups as well as comprehensive treatment plans designed to address their individual mental health needs.
Specific training sessions addressing competency restoration focus on such topics as: an understanding of courtroom proceedings; penalties, charges, and defenses; legal terminology; and various tests used to determine levels of competency. At the conclusion of the specific training sessions, the clients will be enrolled in the Mock Trial. This is a simulated trial-level proceeding conducted by the residents themselves to understand trial rules and gauges their varying levels of competency and individual successes. Once competency is determined, the individual may be remanded back to the county of jurisdiction for further proceedings, or, if applicable, further treatment may be ordered.
