The program is founded on the Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) approach with the emphasis mindfulness, emotion regulation, positive relationships and communication. DBT has been proven effective at treating Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar and Trauma as well as Borderline Personality Disorder.

The focus of treatment will include workshops on the following:

  • Mindfulness*

Clients will be assessed thoroughly using the Beck Depression Inventory and client personal history. Medication will be managed by a psychiatrist, either from A/D or a personal psychiatrist provided we obtain a release of information to communicate with the psychiatrist.
As a part of treatment, clients will be given homework and ask to participate in various activities. Attendance and participation are vital to the program. Frequent absences will require additional days or possibly termination from the program.
Clients are expected to pay program fees as the services are delivered. Final reports will not be released until individual client financial obligations are met.
