Our director was trained by IOCDF Scientific Advisory board members at Rogers Memorial Hospital. Our Chief Clinical Science Officer is, Dr. Dean McKay, who is also a current IOCDF Advisory Board member.
We provide a number of services some dependent on location:
In Dallas, we provide individual, group, intensive outpatient, and day treatment. We also offer the RISE program in Texas and all teletherapy states we offer treatment in.
The RISE program is designed to help individuals who are too severe for once-per-week services but not severe enough to warrant travel to another state for day treatment or intensive outpatient services. The RISE program is 3 sessions of 90-minute Exposure and Response Prevention and Acceptance and Commitment Training offered for a month to facilitate client success in continuing treatment with their outpatient therapist after one month of services.
Treatment of Co-occurring Disorders:
In our high-level treatment programs we assess for co-occurring disorders and treat most disorders responsive to behavioral intervention that do not significantly disrupt the treatment milieu. That is, we treat co-occurring depression, anxiety anxiety disorder, PTSD, and in some cases personality disorders. Eating disorders, personality disorders, etc are evaluated early on and continuously. We refer out cases in need of residential overnight monitoring or where symptoms exceed appropriate treatment in the treatment milieu.
We provide trainings to help clinicians advance in their treatment of OCD and co-occurring behavioral issues with sensitivity and in-depth case consultation that considers the impact of various histories on symptomology and treatment response. We are inclusive and create a safe space for all groups.
We practice with trans, LGBTQIA+, poly-affirming, and supportive of all ethic backgrounds.
