Better Living Center for Behavioral Health (Oklahoma City, OK)
The Dallas location of Better Living Center for Behavioral Health has been open for five years. We have recently opened a number of satellite and teletherapy locations. The team at Better Living Center is a multi-disciplinary team including psychologists, behavior analysts, and professional counselors.
Our director was trained by IOCDF Scientific Advisory board members at Rogers Memorial Hospital. Our advisory board now includes, 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 Day Treatment and Intensive Outpatient services as well as group therapy and some individual therapy.
We offer the RISE program in Texas and in 16 other states. 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.
