Services Explained

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is an one-on-one 60-90 minute session with a masters level therapist in a safe, caring and confidential environment that allows space to explore and work through feelings, belief, behaviors, thoughts, and influential memories. People seek therapy for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to, identifying and working towards desired change, set personal goals, cope with major life challenges or trauma, and dealing with mental health diagnoses. The client and therapist will work together to identify the specific target area and create specific goals around issues.

Family Therapy

Family therapy is done to assist family members in improving communication and resolve existing conflict. It is conducted by master level clinicians in a confidential, safe, and caring environment. The family will work together to identify specific areas of concern and work together as a team to resolve it. While in therapy, the focus is put on increasing skills around handling conflict, thus, reducing it. Family therapy can also be used for a family who’s loved one is engaging in risky behavior, in order to help the family establish boundaries with that loved one and learn tools to assist them in helping this individual get help or to maintain their sobriety. 

Acu Detox

A trained Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist applies fine gauge, sterilized, one-time use stainless steel needles just under the skin in five designated points in each ear. A typical session includes placement of the needles to which they remain in the ear for 30-45 minutes. Clients will receive treatment while seated in a group. Some of the benefits reported by clients and clinicians are “a more optimistic and cooperative attitude towards the process of recovery, reduction in cravings, anxiety, and sleep disturbance, and less need for pharmaceuticals”.

Yoga Therapy

Yoga Therapy promotes wellness through encompassing a physical, psychological, and spiritual healing. Traditional yoga positions, breathing exercises, and relaxation/meditation techniques are used to explore psychological issues to create a pathway to inner and outer balance. It can be particularly helpful with chronic conditions included but not limited to mental health concerns, addiction, and chronic pain.

Sessions are offered in a group setting as well as individually in a 50 minute time slot. Individually, clients will work with a trained master level clinician, who is also a certified yoga teacher, to set clear expectations and goals for treatment. These session include talk therapy around thoughts or emotions that come up during physical sequences. In a group setting, clients will be teach a sequences and be provided with education on the significance of the movement, however, the processing of thoughts and emotions are limited, if at all.

Multifamily Group

Multifamily Group is a vital part of the Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program. Mental health and substance use issues affect the entire family, therefore we highly encourage parents and/or legal guardians to be involved in the healing process. Every Friday during Multifamily Group, the parents and adolescents come together to discuss special topics and review skills that the adolescents have been learning in order to further support and coach their child in self-management.
