Treatment and Staff

Within the first few sessions clients are presented with their treatment plan and established goals through therapy.

Choices offers a variety of treatment tracks for a wide spectrum of issues. This includes anxiety and depression, eating disorders, mood disorders, substance abuse, domestic violence, men’s and women’s issues, sexual addiction or abuse, and grief and loss. There are also speciality tracks for adolescents on the spectrum or are high risk, LGBTQ community, and for those who are transgender and are transitioning. There are group therapy options like the DBT group, a binge eating group, and an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) group that meets three times a week and is considered an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).
