How we help

We use a variety of individual and group therapies, including:
DBT (dialectical behavioral therapy), which is a form of CBT, or cognitive behavioral therapy, that seeks to identify and change negative thought patterns and create positive changes in behavior. We often use this form of therapy to treat people who have suicidal, self-destructive behaviors or borderline personality disorder. These people are high-risk individuals who can be difficult to treat and often have multiple mental disorders. Patients we’ve treated have experienced:

  • Reduced anger
  • Less frequent suicidal behaviors
  • Less severe suicidal behaviors
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Reduced likelihood of dropping out of treatment
  • Improved social functioning

CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) is designed to help people understand the attitudes, thoughts, beliefs and feelings that influence their behaviors. We use CBT to treat a wide range of mental disorders such as phobias, addictions, depression and anxiety. We teach you more positive, beneficial ways of thinking and behaving.

Dual diagnostics help us identify co-occurring mental disorders. If you have any one of several mental disorders and a substance abuse problem, you will have a dual diagnosis.

The goal of these therapies is to help you or a member of your family cope with or overcome a behavioral problem that is negatively impacting your life and help you reach a happier, healthier place. Don’t live with a problem that can be solved here at LaSante Health Center.
