The Practice offers an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for substance abuse, individual and group therapy and anger management classes for adults who are looking to improve their lives and feel empowered.

Treatment and Staff
Private therapy is offered for individuals, couples and families on a completely personalized basis, depending on the situation. The IOP offers traditional approaches for clients who are struggling with addiction and/or behavioral health concerns like anxiety, depression, PTSD, eating disorders and more. There are a number of groups offered per week that are geared towards specific client issues, and each program is individualized. The IOP consists of nine treatment hours per week that is mainly spent in group sessions. Though the standard for the IOP is 36 hours per month of treatment, those clients are able to take additional groups if they’d like at no additional cost. DBT and CBT are the main treatment models in combination of Ego Psychology along with psychoeducational classes and life skills trainings. In addition to talk therapy, there are also some written assignments and journaling along with psychodrama and videos.
Groups are no larger than five clients per session, and address common issues like parenting, communication, impulse control and coping with grief. There are alternative groups as well, like the Cinema Therapy group, which takes certain film themes like grief or trauma, and applies them to specific clients in order to give them new perspectives.
Clinical staff includes Master’s and Doctorate-level therapists who are LPC with extensive experience in anger management, with the exception of Mr. Dog, the facilities certified therapy dog.
The anger management class meets Wednesdays nights from 7 to 9 pm for 10 weeks. There are also specialty focus groups geared towards conflict resolution and communication within the workplace or family. These tracks run on either an on-going basis or meet for 10 to 12 week cycles once a week for an hour and a half to two hours at a time.
The Practice is able to provide psych assessments for academic settings, legal purposes, employment uses and diagnostic testing. Additionally treatment is available in both English and Spanish.
The approaches at The Practice are highly professional with the emphasis being on emotional regulation and providing a number of options when it comes to treatment. The clinic has incredibly high standards when it comes to the level of programming provided, with the intent to offer their clientele the best possible chances at healing.
