The purpose of the Substance Abuse group therapy program is to educate and empower individual to resist drug or alcohol abuse by acquiring a new lifestyle and developing new life skills.
IMCES has developed several innovative programs and interventions for the treatment of substance abuse. These services are culturally and linguistically appropriate and are designed to serve both adolescents and adults. All programs meet weekly and are conducted at our clinic in Los Angeles.
The program includes a guided curriculum:
Abuse vs. Addiction
Our Health & Wellness Program is an integrated benefits program that encourages our clients and the community to work with our team of health and wellness professionals to educate and encourage them to improve their health and well-being. The Program provides support by engaging the participant in their own “path” towards optimal health and wellness by providing a variety of resources and an integrated health management model.

To engage the community and provide fun activities for the entire family, IMCES is taking our activities and resources out of the clinic and into the outdoors. IMCES offers activities for all ages that promote harmony and revitalization, including such programs as:
Meditation and Yoga
