PCH Treatment Center is independently-owned by experienced clinicians and leaders in the fields of psychology and medicine. Jeff Ball, Ph.D., Co-Founder, CEO and Executive Director, provides over 30 years of experience treating bipolar disorder, depression, trauma and personality issues. Terry Krekorian, M.D., Co-Founder and President, provides both clinical and medical expertise, having worked in academic, hospital and outpatient medical settings for over 20 years.
PCH Treatment Center is a unique facility staffed by some of the brightest and most talented clinicians in the Los Angeles area. PCH believes in the importance of education, training, and cumulative experience. We do not cut costs by hiring interns or newly licensed clinicians. Our therapists are masters and doctoral level with local private practices (clients may continue with them after completing treatment). Most of our therapists have 15 to 30 years of clinical experience and many are affiliated with local universities and institutes.
Family members may feel anxious and overwhelmed in seeking the best care for a loved one with psychological issues. Once a week psychotherapy may be inadequate and hospitalization can be inappropriate and often traumatizing. At PCH, our programs are designed to meet the personal and psychological needs of each client. We provide intensive treatment in a secure, safe, comfortable, and caring environment without overmedicating or using stigmatizing labels.
