California’s Premier Mental Health, Addiction & Substance Abuse Treatment Center

AKUA Mind & Body is a fully accredited and licensed mental health, substance use and addiction treatment center with locations throughout the Sacramento Region, Los Angeles & Orange County Region, and San Diego Region. At AKUA Mind & Body, we incorporate the mind, body, and spirit into our holistic approach while blending clinical excellence and an integrative East-meets-West therapeutic process. AKUA’s integrative treatment approach combines Western evidenced-based medication-assisted treatment with holistic Eastern traditions to provide the highest quality of care to our clients.

AKUA provides individualized treatment to adult men and women who have been diagnosed with a mental health and/or a substance abuse disorder. It is not uncommon for an individual to enter treatment primarily for addiction, but soon be diagnosed with a mental illness or vice versa. This condition is known as a co-occurring disorder, formerly termed as dual diagnosis. In this case, it is essential for both the disorders to be treated simultaneously for the individual to fully heal.

AKUA Mind & Body employs a multidisciplinary treatment team that includes admission intake counselors, therapists, dietitians, and addiction medicine physicians who work together to provide an integrated approach to treatment for both substance use disorder and mental illness.

Treatments include:

  • Trauma-informed therapy
  • EMDR therapy
  • Yoga
  • Meditation
  • Family therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Dietary and nutrition counseling
  • Individual therapy
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Detox Treatment Program

For most people, the path to recovery begins with detox. During this treatment process, our clients are carefully supervised 24/7 by a trained medical staff. We combine medication, healthy diet, music therapy, meditation and more to ease the harsh symptoms of alcohol and drug withdrawals.

Treatment for substance abuse usually begins with detoxification, with an average of 3 – 5 days in treatment, depending on the substance of abuse. The goal of our drug detox rehab program is to rid the body of the abused substance so the withdrawal process can be treated successfully

Opioids, benzodiazepines, and alcohol are known to have severe withdrawal side effects and therefore medications are given to relieve any unwanted side effects and prevent any further harm. Once the acute withdrawal stage is over, the acute drug treatment will begin.

At our state-of-the-art facilities throughout the Sacramento Region, Los Angeles & Orange County Region and San Diego Region, we strive to create a warm and happy atmosphere so our clients can focus on their recovery.


Residential Treatment Program

After detox, our residential rehab program is the second phase of mental health and addiction treatment where our clients are under 24/7 care and supervision of our skilled clinical team.

At AKUA Mind & Body, we focus on lasting recovery and mindfulness-based relapse prevention. Our unique programs combine the proven Eastern techniques such as yoga and acupuncture with the Western scientific approach to medication management, physical exercise, and more.


Outpatient Programs –Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) & Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Providing our clients with the ability to maintain healthfulness is AKUA’s main goal! Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) include group therapy sessions, individual therapy sessions, music therapy and much more that help our clients fight their urges and avoid using and relapsing. Clients receive group therapy while they attend school, volunteer, continue their career paths or return to the workforce to provide them with structure and accountability after receiving a higher level of care. This includes urinary drug tests and mindfulness-based relapse prevention.

The Partial Hospitalization Program requires four to six hours of therapy per day for four to five days per week. While, the Intensive Outpatient program requires individuals to maintain at least nine hours of group and/or individual therapy per week.

We also offer a virtual/online outpatient program for our California residents suffering from mental health or a substance abuse disorder. Our new Online Outpatient Programs replicate the same experience you can get through face-to-face individual and group therapy sessions.


Aftercare Alumni Program

The AKUA Alumni Program establishes a social support network of recovering people and provides structure to help sustain emotional, physical and mental wellbeing following treatment.

The Alumni Programs’ mission is to extend the AKUA Behavioral Health program beyond treatment by creating events and providing resources to strengthen the sense of connection that is essential to long-term recovery.
