ABOUT ACTION FAMILY COUNSELING – BAKERSFIELD IOP
Headquartered in Santa Clarita, Calif., Action Family Counseling provides a full continuum of substance abuse treatment services for adults and adolescents in Ventura, Los Angeles, and Kern Counties. The Bakersfield location offers intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment for adolescents and adults. Residential care and partial treatment are also available.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Programming is designed to address and treat co-occurring mental health disorders. Clients enrolled in the intensive outpatient program typically receive treatment three hours a day, three days a week for three months. Most of this time is spent in process groups, educational workshops, and structured exercises. Sessions cover the 12-Steps and focus on spirituality, relapse prevention, emotional wellbeing, and healthy relationships. Participants also meet with a counselor for family therapy once a week. Aftercare plans are developed prior to completing the program.
According to the facility’s website, services are administered by counselors and therapists. Additionally, the organization’s founder has over 30 years of experience working with teens, adults, and families affected by substance abuse.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Alumni reviews are limited, but the two individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date had overwhelmingly positive things to say about their experiences. Both respondents commended the “absolutely awesome” staff and credited the organization for their recovery. “Action is a very great place that teaches not just tools for recovery but life tools as well,” O.P. wrote. Alison, who used the IOP program as a step-down option following residential treatment, offered her wholehearted recommendation. “If you need help, go to Action, I have that family to thank for helping me find a new way to live my life,” she wrote.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Rehabs.com has not yet received any reviews from this facility’s affiliated friends or family members. One reviewer on Yelp, however, was unhappy with the treatment her son received after leaving one of the center’s residential programs. This reviewer, Carmen, expressed dissatisfaction with the staff, which she characterized as “ineffective,” and the facility’s management. “All in all, I would not recommend this facility. Their procedures are archaic and ineffective and the right hand doesn't seem to know what the left hand is doing,” she wrote.
WHAT STAFF SAY
Jessica, the one staff member who submitted a review to Rehabs.com, had only positive things to say about her employer. She described the staff as a “big family,” and included her personal story of recovery in her recommendation of the facility. “I know that I would still be clean and sober without Action… If I was no longer an employee, I would continue to recommend friends and family members because they treat you as if you are!” she wrote.
Action Family Counseling accepts most private insurance plans.
