At Wellbeing Center, our program is built firmly on a REBT and CBT. We create individualized treatment plans that will help you understand what is getting the way of the changes you need to make in order to follow your path to recovery.
To Begin the Process, each individual completes a mental health assessment interview at intake as well as a physiological assessment. Individuals needing medication assessment and/or medication management will be assessed by our clinical specialist in psychiatry nursing and /or the psychiatrist. Through interview, collateral information, and assessment tools, an individualized treatment plan is created that treats the physical body, emotional body and spiritual body. Treatment is organized around therapeutic modalities that reflect the most current evidence base, supporting safe and cohesive therapeutic choices.
Mindfulness-based interventions and practice include Hypnotherapy, Thetahealing, Family therapy, Couple therapy, Spiritual exploration, practice and personal intentioning.
The length of your treatment program will be determined following an initial assessment. Participants can expect an increased understanding of the effects and impact of trauma, an increase in personal insight and overall daily functioning, and a decrease in emotional outbursts or “checking out.”
