OC Teen Center is owned and operated by Dr. Sayeh Beheshti. You can get an initial appointment or follow-up appointment at our location in Costa Mesa. Dr. Sayeh Beheshti has many years of experience treating a wide range of behavioral and developmental disorders, including mood and anxiety, psychosis, body image, and self-esteem issues, eating disorders, interpersonal relationship issues, and substance abuse.
Even without being enrolled in one of our main programs, your child can see a therapist at OC Teen Center. Our therapists are available Monday through Friday and we welcome the opportunity to serve you, even if only for a few sessions on a limited basis.
Outpatient (OP) is the 3rd phase of treatment after PHP and IOP have been completed. OP offers a flexible schedule of 1-2 days per week and an opportunity to stay connected to the primary therapist and psychiatrist that has been with them all along the way at OC Teen Center.
Intensive Outpatient Programs
For those who are finished with PHP, or looking to start at a lower level of care, we offer our Intensive Outpatient Program. This program is 3 hours per day, 5 days per week, and takes place from 3:30 to 6:30 pm. Like our PHP, children will get private therapy, psychiatrist supervision, and group therapy. During the IOP phase of healing, your child can attend a normal school schedule before coming to our center every afternoon after school.
Partial Hospitalization Programs
A Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) falls on the continuum of mental healthcare between residential treatment and intensive outpatient or outpatient treatment. Partial Hospital Programs typically include individual, family, and group counseling and medication management. The main difference between PHP and residential treatment is individuals do not live in the treatment centers, but rather attend program during the day and return home after as they no longer require 24hr supervision. This allows clients to receive much of the same structure as residential care during the day as well as the opportunity to begin practicing their skills as they transition to life outside the treatment program.
