Dr. Bellman is an Orange County based psychiatrist who owns his own private practice but also works with clients and staff at Ocean Recovery. He completed his training at New York University Medical Center in 2001. Additionally, he has served as a lecturer and consultant at Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach. Furthermore, Dr. Bellman also consults at assisted living facilities and is a member of the American Psychiatric Association and the Orange County Psychiatric Society. Dr. Bellman feels strongly that Ocean Recovery has a particular niche with 18-30 year-olds whose addiction has interfered with a true launch into adulthood.
By working closely, compassionately, and consistently with both addicts and their families, Dr. Bellman enjoys helping to encourage love and boundaries that are rarely found in other treatment centers. He believes that to fully recover, clients need to build caring relationships with people who simultaneously do not tolerate behavior consistent with their addiction. Dr. Bellman feels that the single biggest failure of providers is the lack of commitment to one treatment episode. He is proud of the fact that both he and the team at Ocean Recovery are determined to provide that commitment to all of their clients while they work towards their full recovery.
