Our Treatment Programs

We utilize evidence-based practices to treat the various needs of our clients, including:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy treatment. CBT focuses on challenging and changing negative patterns of thinking or behavior that are at the root of people’s difficulties. Through CBT, we strive to improve emotional regulation and provide our clients with positive coping strategies.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a client-centered counseling method that helps people explore and resolve ambivalent insecurities and feelings so that they can find the internal motivation that they need to ultimately change their behavior and make positive decisions.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based psychotherapy treatment method intended to help people learn how to regulate emotions, cope healthily with stress, and improve relationships with others.

Other services provided are:

Outpatient Mental Health Treatment

Outpatient mental health treatment can involve one or more mental health services that don’t necessitate a prolonged stay in a facility.

Sex Offender Treatment

Through our sex offender treatment program, we help clients learn strategies to stop abusive behavior and to learn to take responsibility for harm done.

Substance Abuse Outpatient Treatment

Our substance abuse outpatient treatment program provides clients with an intensive, structured level of care while accommodating their home and work life.

At-Risk Youth Mentorship

We match at-risk youth with mentors who can act as their role model. Mentors provide guidance and help with different aspects of a youth’s life.

Parent Education & Training

Through parent education and training, we strive to teach parents about positive reinforcement methods and improve parenting behaviors.

Correctional Re-Entry Services

Through our correctional re-entry services, we assist offenders in their transition from a correctional facility to the community.

Recidivism Prevention

Through recidivism prevention, we aim to increase offenders’ ability to control their dysfunctional behaviors.

Diagnostic Services

We offer diagnostic procedures to help identify mental and behavioral problems, helping clients get the treatment they need to recover.

Clinical Assessments

Through comprehensive clinical assessments, we strive to better understand the issues you are struggling with so that we can offer the best treatment options possible.

Therapy Sessions

We also provide individual, family, and group therapy sessions. In-home services may be provided, depending on distance.

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) is an evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents impacted by trauma and their parents or caregivers. Research shows that TF-CBT successfully resolves a broad array of emotional and behavioral difficulties associated with single, multiple and complex trauma experiences.
