Description:

We are able to provide a variety of Intensive Treatment Program (ITP) services in English, Spanish, or Portuguese, as well as comprehensive testing services.

NBI’s Intensive Treatment Program (ITP) is staffed by highly experienced clinicians who are specifically trained in the treatment of OCD and Related Disorders for all age groups. The majority of direct intervention services are provided by doctoral level practitioners. Drs. Hoffman and Moritz are the Program Directors and have been treating OCD and Anxiety Spectrum Disorders for decades. NBI is an APPIC approved postdoctoral program site, providing advanced specialized training for psychologists in diagnosing and treating OCD and Related Disorders.

NBI’s ITP for OCD and Anxiety Related Disorders is well-established and allows for both full-day and half-day options, with separate pediatric, teen, and adult tracks. NBI staff work together as a true clinical team from admission to discharge. ITP treatment plans are highly individualized, while maintaining fidelity to core CBT principles. The NBI clinical staff members are well experienced in providing services to individuals from diverse geographical locations and cultures, both local and international. NBI is recognized as an exempt Health Care Clinic by the State of Florida and patients have had success with insurance reimbursement for Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) codes.

NBI has a variety of specialty tracks and programs to meet the diverse clinical needs of our patients. Specialty tracks include OCD overlapping with disorders of eating and combined CBT and Applied Behavioral Analysis for individuals with co-occurring OCD and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Further, some ITP patients benefit from working with our staff executive function coach to improve their organizational, planning, and prioritization skills. In order to meet patient medical needs, NBI has curated a network of psychiatrists and other physicians who work closely and collaboratively with NBI’s clinical staff.

Certain ITP patients reside at the nearby NBI Ranch while undergoing treatment. The NBI Ranch+ITP option is ideal for those individuals who have been unable to make therapeutic progress while residing at home. Additionally, NBI Ranch+ITP is often recommended for severe and complex clinical presentations that do not require hospitalization or restrictive settings. Patients are also referred to NBI Ranch+ITP as a step-down from other higher levels of care.

At NBI Ranch, residents have an opportunity to acquire and improve life skills, practice what they are learning in ITP, and participate in numerous progress-supporting activities, e.g. equine therapy, all while incorporating some fun in the process! Although NBI Ranch is an unlocked setting and promotes independent functioning as much as possible, a Residential Counselor (RC) is always on premises to assist residents 24/7. Additionally, an NBI staff dietician provides individually customized nutritional and meal preparation guidance to each resident.
