Over the years many professionals in the field of psychology, psychiatry, social work, and medicine have struggled to efficiently and systematically practice an integrated approach to treating patients with mental health conditions. These difficulties often stem from different clinical cultures among professionals, fragmented delivery systems, and a lack of coordination within treatment teams.
CNS not only recognizes the challenges of accessing quality care that addresses the needs of the whole person, but also the difficulty of navigating a complex healthcare system. Based on research findings on best practices for improved integrated outpatient services, CNS is founded on an innovative model of care delivery. The integrated care approach at CNS emphasizes the idea that professionals work within, and as a part of, the overall treatment team and support network to enhance the quality of care and quality of life of our patients.
This is an extremely unique model in that it is the only private practice in Los Angeles with an integrated multidisciplinary approach to care. This level of care is usually only offered by inpatient hospitalizations or residential programs. CNS offers this level of care on a convenient outpatient basis.
