The Haven Outpatient Treatment Center


The Haven at College Outpatient Center, in collaboration with USC, is located in the center of USC’s campus across from USC’s University Village. Our student-centric program integrates mental health and substance use treatment with on-campus community engagement to support students’ college lifestyles. Our licensed clinicians facilitate strength-based Intensive Outpatient (IOP) and Outpatient (OP) programs that empower and increase student capacity for personal agency, responsibility and accountability. We offer tracks for substance use/co-occurring disorders and primary mental health that include treatment for mood disorders and trauma.
Haven Outpatient Center Programs use both conventional and complementary evidence-based treatments including Motivational Interviewing, DBT and CBT within an integrative system of relationships with like-minded students. We include comprehensive care to increase personal resiliency and set and meet personal and academic goals. We also offer Family Support, Adjunctive Mental Health Services and Academic Coaching as needed and parents are encouraged to participate in family therapy with their student.


Founded in 1880, USC is one of the world’s leading private research Universities and a global center for arts, technology and international business. The Wall Street Journal ranks USC 17th among more than 1,000 public and private universities and among the top 25 Universities, USC ranks No. 2 in engagement and No. 4 in environment, a measure of diversity and inclusion. USC’s faculty includes 4,000 scholars, researchers, teachers and mentors including five Nobel laureates. The University offers “Limited Status Enrollment” opportunities for students who wish to take courses at USC without formally applying for admission to the university. This is a popular option that many Haven students have taken advantage of in cases where they are on leave from other colleges, returning to college after a medical leave or desiring to get on a college track. Earned academic credits can easily be transferred to other institutions if desired. For more information, go to
