At Anxiety Institute, the sole focus is treating clients with anxiety and related disorders. We use only evidence-based techniques informed by research firmly based in the medical sciences. Our team has the specialized training and experience to achieve superior outcomes for our clients.
Our anxiety expertise is apparent from the first point of inquiry. Since many prospective clients are dispirited by prior experiences with therapy, the admissions team provides much-needed help and hope in getting reticent clients to believe they can confront and conquer their fears. Admissions will assess your child to help your family make an informed choice for appropriate placement.
Our unique approach provides more individual attention for clients compared to other acute anxiety programs. At Anxiety Institute, each client receives ten hours a week of individualized treatment sessions in our intensive outpatient program. Your lead clinician is dedicated to your child, serving a maximum of three clients at any given time. This contrasts with typical intensive outpatient programs that predominantly offer group sessions for treatment and manage a caseload of ten or more clients.
Customized Treatment Plans
Due to our focus on each individual and their family, treatment plans are more customized than other intensive programs. Each treatment plan is unique to the individual as opposed to dictated by a standardized group curriculum, typically at the core of most intensive programs.
Exposure Focused CBT Model
Our professionally trained clinical team utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as its core modality, incorporating second and third-wave CBT treatments, including Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). At Anxiety Institute, the clinical approach uses daily exposure therapy which allows clients to gradually confront their fears, rewiring their brain by desensitizing the anxiety response. Other programs often teach only coping skills which may provide short-term relief but not long-term results. At Anxiety Institute, the clinical approach focuses on mediating both short and long-term solutions.
Treatment in Your Local Home Environment
Anxiety Institute’s intensive outpatient treatment integrates the client’s local academic and social activities into their treatment plan, facilitating a more rapid and successful reintegration into their lives.
We provide parents real-time coaching, support, and psychoeducation to facilitate and sustain recovery. Parents and their children learn new skills together, improving family dynamics and breaking the cycle of accommodation and avoidance.
Our Client Base
Due to our specialization, the typical client cohort has a similar profile – bright, good-natured, high functioning adolescents and young adults who rely on avoidance and procrastination as their coping strategies for fear and anxiety.
