Mental Health Treatment at NEM

A Comprehensive Approach to Wellness

At NEM Recovery Centers, nestled under the endless blue skies of Laguna Beach, our approach to mental health treatment acknowledges the complex interplay between substance use disorders and mental health conditions. Understanding that healing must address both the mind and body, we offer a holistic program that combines rigorous clinical work with activities designed to boost mental wellness and emotional resilience.

Addressing Co-occurring Conditions

Integrated Treatment for Dual Diagnosis

Many individuals who come to us are dealing with co-occurring mental health conditions alongside their substance use disorders. Common conditions include:
  • Anxiety Disorders: Including generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, and social anxiety disorder.
  • Depression: From mild to severe cases, impacting daily functioning and quality of life.
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Stemming from past traumatic events, often linked to substance use as a form of self-medication.
  • Bipolar Disorder: Characterized by significant mood swings, including manic highs and depressive lows.
Our treatment plans are tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual, employing evidence-based therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for trauma. These modalities are proven to be effective in treating mental health disorders and are integral to our clients’ recovery processes.

Building Mental Wellness and Emotional Resilience

Beyond Clinical Therapy

Recognizing that true recovery encompasses more than just clinical treatment, NEM Recovery Centers offer a range of activities aimed at enhancing mental wellness:
  • Mindfulness and Meditation: Guided sessions help reduce stress, increase self-awareness, and promote emotional balance.
  • Physical Fitness: Activities designed to improve physical health but also mental well-being through the release of endorphins.
  • Art and Music Therapy: Creative outlets for expression, healing, and exploration of emotions without words.
  • Nature Therapy: Leveraging our stunning Laguna Beach location, clients find healing and serenity in the natural world, reinforcing their connection to themselves and their surroundings.

The Power of Community

Small Group, Big Impact

A key component of our mental health treatment approach is the sense of community fostered among our clients. Being part of a small, close-knit group in a setting where the sun shines nearly every day has profound effects on mental health and emotional well-being. This supportive environment encourages openness, shared experiences, and deep connections, making recovery a shared journey rather than a solitary struggle.
The benefits of this approach include:
  • Reduced feelings of isolation, as clients realize they are not alone in their struggles.
  • Increased accountability and motivation, spurred by the successes and encouragement of peers.
  • Enhanced self-esteem and confidence, fostered by a supportive community that celebrates every step forward.

Embracing the Sunshine

Healing Under the California Sun

The idyllic setting of Laguna Beach plays a significant role in our treatment program. The abundance of natural light and temperate climate promotes outdoor activities, which have been shown to have a positive effect on mental health. The beauty of our surroundings and the vitamin D from the constant sunshine contribute to an overall sense of well-being, aiding in the recovery process.
At NEM Recovery Centers, we believe in the power of comprehensive mental health treatment to transform lives. By addressing co-occurring conditions with evidence-based therapies, providing activities that boost mental wellness, and fostering a supportive community, we offer our clients the tools they need to build a foundation of lasting recovery.
