Our Los Angeles County Location

Alternative Options opened up its first facility in Cerritos, California in 1988. Although we have expanded and have had to move to bigger facilities due to growth we have remained in Cerritos. Cerritos is also home to our corporate, administrative and intake team.

Potential patients come from all over Los Angeles County to our Cerritos office because of our unique, individualized and comprehensive treatment. We currently have open admission and would be happy to answer any questions that you may have to help you along your new journey of recovery. We offer flexible afternoon and evening schedules to accommodate work and/or school schedules.

LA Addiction Programs and Mental Health Services

At our Los Angeles County location in Cerritos we offer outpatient, IOP, and PHP services for adults and adolescents. We have programming for mental health, dual diagnosis, chemical dependency, and eating disorders.

Outpatient treatment usually consists of once a week therapy with a therapist. At this level of care the clinician can address mild to moderate life stressors through therapeutic treatment utilizing a variety of therapeutic orientations. We have the ability to treat individuals, couples, families and children.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) consists of 3 hours a day of treatment for a minimum of 3-5 days per week. At this level of care the treatment team can assist the patient in identifying and working on moderate to severe issues through a variety of treatment modalities.

Partial Hospitalization (PHP) consists of programming 5 days a week 6 hours per day. This level of care is used as a step down from an inpatient or residential facility or an alternative to inpatient or residential treatment when deemed appropriate. PHP is a short-term structured, therapeutic treatment option for someone with persistent and severe mental health issues, someone needing crisis stabilization, or are experiencing other conditions that were significantly impairing daily functioning or health.

We are currently accepting patients and are in-network contracted providers for most major insurance companies. Please call us to setup an appointment for outpatient therapy or for a complimentary consultation or assessment if you are interested in one of the programs.
