Nsight Psychology & Addiction Philosophy

Nsight takes an Integrative and Solution Focused approach to therapy based on evidenced based practices. CBT, DBT, and Family Systems orientations are utilized in an emotionally focused manner to assist client in overcoming emotional issues that reinforce the dependence on substances as a coping skill.

Areas of Specialization

  • Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)
    Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.

  • Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
    Nsight Psychology & Addiction provides both primary mental health (mood disorders, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, trauma/PTSD) and substance abuse treatment. While most programs talk about offering treatment for dual diagnosis issues, they are not staffed to provide those services. Nsight has 10 licensed therapists and a psychiatrist on staff who specialize in trauma, mood disorders, eating disorders, substance abuse, and family systems.

Located in the seaside community of Newport Beach, Calif., 20 miles southwest of Anaheim, Nsight Psychology and Addiction is an upscale treatment provider that specializes in treating adults struggling with dual diagnosis. Founded in 2013, the facility provides short-term inpatient, residential, day treatment, and outpatient programs. Detoxification is not available on-site.


According to the center’s website, Nsight Psychology and Addiction treats both the behavioral issues of chemical dependency, as well as the underlying psychological contributors to addictive behavior. To help clinicians form an individualized program curriculum, clients first undergo a psychological and behavioral assessment. If the client requires stabilization, they may be referred to a closely monitored, short-term inpatient program, which typically lasts between seven and 10 days.

Clients may then transition into the 30- to 90-day residential program. Nsight Psychology and Addiction provides a multidisciplinary approach to treatment, which combines evidence-based treatment methods with self-help program participation, either a 12-step or a non-12-step fellowship, such as SMART Recovery. The facility also encourages loved ones to participate in its therapeutic and educational family program.

To address psychological issues contributing to addictive behaviors, the facility utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) in individual and group therapy sessions. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) may also be incorporated into programming to address issues of trauma. Throughout treatment, clients receive ongoing medication management to help alleviate symptoms of mental health disorders.

Along with psychiatric treatment, clients participate in life skills workshops and receive alternative treatments, such as acupuncture. Once a client indicates progress and increased functioning, they can transition into a less intensive level of treatment. Day treatment, for example, consists of five hours of daily programming, while the intensive outpatient program involves nine hours of weekly treatment.

Upon completing treatment at the facility, clients are encouraged to continue meeting with a clinician for individual psychotherapy and/or ongoing medication management.


A CARF-accredited facility, Nsight Psychology and Addiction employs a multidisciplinary team of qualified clinicians, including two consulting psychiatrists, master’s level marriage and family therapists, licensed clinical social workers, and case managers, according to the center’s website.


With accommodations to house up to 32 residents, Nsight Psychology and Addiction’s homelike living facilities feature spacious, double occupancy bedrooms, en-suite bathrooms, well-appointed communal areas, full kitchens, washers and dryers, outdoor patios, and soothing, tasteful décor, the center’s website indicates.


The four staff members who were polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing provided positive reviews. On average, they gave the center five out of five stars when asked if they would recommend Nsight Psychology and Addiction.

They also gave the center tops marks in every category including counseling options, holistic offerings, and the staff’s level of experience and training.

“The staff at Nsight at second to none,” a staff member wrote. “What you receive at Nsight is treatment that is way beyond what most others provide.”


Nsight Psychology and Addiction accepts private insurance, including from Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Humana, and more. Up to 60 percent of covered costs may be available to eligible clientele through financial assistance.

Facility focuses on individualized treatment with the staff willing to go out of the way to assure client's needs are met. Facility accepts hard cases (i.e mental issue, behavior problems) which can be overwhelming for staff, but believes in giving everybody a chance. Nsight provides a stepping stone for clients to move onto the next phase of recovery. Clients are equipped with resources, solid discharge plan, and coping tools to help manage sobriety. Staff are all extremely friendly and on the same page to cater client's needs.

Humanistic view; licensed clinicians; dedicated clinicians and case managers; different theoretical approaches; very well structured to assist patients delay the need for immediate gratification. We see weaknesses as opportunities for growth. Nsight Psychology & Addiction is a highly trained program to treat substance dependence & mental health including complex trauma. Some clinicians provide intense psychotherapy to assist the clients in increasing awareness of their strengths in order to improve functioning and prevent relapse. We are a compassionate, humanistic, ethical, and committed team assisting clients in reaching their goals/developmental milestone stages.

All therapists are licensed (no interns) High staff to client ratio Individualized treatment plans. Day and evening IOP options were great. Does not provide food. Treatment at NSIGHT begins with a true understanding of the individual, their history, family, and situation. Accurate diagnosis and individualized treatment planning by a multidisciplinary team that includes the client and their family establishes the foundation for change beginning now and lasting throughout one’s life.
