Intensive therapy can accelerate patient progress and facilitate return of functionality in a relatively brief period of time. It is appropriate for patients who have not benefited sufficiently from traditional weekly treatment or those who need to achieve significant improvement quickly. For instance, those who must resume school attendance or return to work can benefit from intensive treatment.
Children, adolescents, and adults can all participate in intensive treatment and it may be an appropriate alternative to hospitalization. Once symptom reduction and return of functionality has been achieved, gradually less intensive treatment is implemented. Ongoing support is vital to ensure continued progress and relapse prevention.
Intensive treatment may be appropriate for individuals diagnosed with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Body Dysmorphic Disorder, Hoarding, Depression and a number of other anxiety-related disorders. An individual’s level of symptomatology and impairment is an important factor in determining if this higher level of care is warranted. Session time can range from 90 minutes to several hours, and depending on individual needs, are conducted in the office, the individual’s home or other relevant setting.
Whereas many intensive programs rely on interns and group sessions, all treatment is provided by a licensed, doctoral level clinical psychologist with significant experience. Treatment techniques are all empirically validated, practical, structured, and geared to the individual needs of the patient. Treatment may include exposure and response prevention, other behavioral work, cognitive restructuring, and dialectical behavior therapy.
