SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, September 19, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Akua Behavioral Health is pleased to announce the opening of our newest outpatient facility to serve the behavioral health needs of the San Diego community.

Dr. Toyin Thompson

My goal is to build a culture of healing and inspiration for those struggling with substance use and mental health issues by integrating immersive experiences for a holistic approach.

— Dr. Toyin Thompson, Program Director
To ease the cost of recovery and ensure clients pay as little out of pocket for services, Akua is in-network with most insurances and offers payment plans so the focus remains on treatment, and not complicated financial issues.
Akua Strong San Diego provides Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) that caters to individuals with substance use disorder, mental health disorder, or co-occurring disorders. Akua Strong provides each client with the structure, accountability, and community they need for successful recovery, with the flexibility and comfort of staying in their own homes or supportive housing.

“My goal is to build a culture of healing and inspiration for people who are struggling with substance use and mental health issues. I really want to create a culture where we are integrating different modes of healing. We’ll provide traditional counseling, clinical counseling, and we’ll also offer immersive experiences like yoga, acupuncture, reiki and some additional modes of healing where we can build a holistic approach.”
- Dr. Toyin Thompson, Program Director, Akua Strong San Diego
