MAMP is an intensive, group-based, outpatient program dedicated to the treatment of anxiety disorders and OCD in children, adolescents, and young adults. Our program provides comprehensive assessment and treatment that focuses not only on the child but also on all of the systems involved in the child’s daily life. We make sure that all involved party members are included in the process by providing regular updates to the outpatient team and school staff members when applicable. In addition, relevant family dynamics are addressed, particularly with respect to family accommodation of anxiety-driven behaviors. We make sure that a cohesive treatment plan is in place before a child is discharged from the program (e.g., provide referrals and make sure that they are set up prior to discharge) and can offer a taper plan to facilitate the transition from our care to other providers’ care.

Treatment of Co-occurring Disorders:
