At United Family Center, our clinicians use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) approaches to work with our clients. Both CBT and DBT are evidence-based approaches that have been shown to be effective in treating a variety of mental health concerns.
When using CBT, our clinicians work with clients to identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors that may be contributing to their distress. This approach is particularly useful for clients who are struggling with anxiety, depression, or other mood disorders.
In contrast, DBT is an approach that was specifically developed to treat individuals who struggle with intense emotions and/or have difficulty regulating their emotions. DBT focuses on teaching clients skills such as mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness.
At United Family Center, our clinicians strive to meet our clients where they are in their journey toward mental health and wellness. We recognize that each client is unique and that their experiences and needs are different. By utilizing these evidence-based approaches, we aim to provide our clients with the tools and support they need to achieve their goals and improve their overall quality of life.
LEVEL I OUTPATIENT
This program addresses major lifestyle, attitudinal, and behavioral issues that have the potential to undermine the goals of treatment or inhibit the individual’s ability to cope with major life tasks without the non-medical use of alcohol or other drugs. For individuals new to substance use outpatient services, the program also includes addiction education. This level of care is offered to individuals who are either entering a substance use disorder treatment for the first time and/or are stepping down from a more intensive level of substance use disorder treatment.
LEVEL II INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT
Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) are used to address addictions or other dependencies that do not require detoxification or round-the-clock supervision. They enable individuals to continue with their normal, day-to-day lives in a way that residential treatment programs do not. IOP is designed to establish support mechanisms, help with relapse management, and provide healthy coping strategies.
