RESILIENCE TREATMENT CENTER’S GENERAL PROGRAM
Resilience Treatment Center is a private, luxury mental health treatment resource in Los Angeles, California offering multiple levels of care. The comprehensive approach to treating individuals is client-centered and holistic; however, Resilience also provides Cognitive-Behavioral programming specific to the needs of adults struggling with Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders and Anxiety Disorders.
If you are admitted to Resilience’s program, we will first complete a biopsychosocial assessment. The Partial Hospitalization Program spans 5-6 days a week and is an individualized program. The Intensive Outpatient Program spans 3-5 days a week and is an individualized program. Supplemental treatments are also provided for comprehensive, holistic care with other clients enrolled in the general program. Often treatment episodes span from 1 to several months and the typical program day hours are from 9:30am-5:00pm, with additional evening and weekend programming for those admitted into the PHP level of care or staying in the housing accommodations. It is also ideal if there is at least one family member or friend who can engage in family therapy with you. You will not have to disclose every detail of your symptoms; however, it is important that your loved ones understand how to be supportive without interfering with your progress at home.
RESILIENCE’S OCD AND ANXIETY PROGRAM
Resilience’s OCD and Anxiety Program is tailored to assist you in learning new ways to cope with ingrained fears in a safe and focused environment. Therapy is a vital component for long-term results and this kind of treatment is best suited for those who are highly motivated to practice new ways of coping. Please reference the following links for conditions treated within this track: Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders and Anxiety Disorders.
Resilience utilizes evidence-based treatments for each disorder that are supported by research. Most of these conditions warrant Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy techniques; for example, Exposure and Response/Ritual Prevention for OCD, Interceptive Exposure for Panic Disorder, Exposure for Phobias, Habit Reversal or Comprehensive Behavioral Mode for Trichotillomania, and Prolonged Exposure or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.
The Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy philosophy emphasizes changing the way you respond to intrusive thoughts or maladaptive behaviors that influence your emotions or mood. You are the expert on your symptoms and the therapist is the expert on your treatment. This is why it is so important that you provide input on your treatment plan and homework. The goal of CBT is that you eventually become your own “therapist” with the tools to adapt when anxiety arises.
Early in the individual therapy process, a treatment plan will be created collaboratively between you and the therapist. Psychoeducation will be an important component of treatment for a better understanding of the causes and maintenance of symptoms. You will learn how your cognitions (obsessions) and behaviors (compulsions and avoidance), and sometimes even your physiology (bodily sensations), directly impact your mood (anxiety). Sessions may take place in the office setting or in real-life settings to allow for in vivo exposures. Exposure exercises may be longer than the traditional 50-minute outpatient session. When appropriate, Cognitive Restructuring will be practiced to shape thoughts into more rational thinking. Homework will be assigned every individual session throughout treatment in order that progress in session is generalized to settings outside of the office. This homework will be reviewed every individual session. Screeners will be administered and repeated at certain intervals as an objective measurement of progress. Over time, your level of anxiety should decrease between individual exposures as you habituate. Towards the end of your treatment, your individual therapist will review your progress and response skills and assist with identifying a relapse prevention plan.
Supplemental coping skills are taught in individual and group formats by other therapists based on their respective expertise (e.g. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, Dialectical-Behavior Therapy, Family Therapy, Yoga, Art Therapy). Psychiatry and Nursing services are also offered weekly.
Resilience is aware that many individuals with anxiety may avoid treatment for years or even decades. We understand that intrusive thoughts can range from unpleasant to alarming and repetitive behaviors can be debilitating, but these experiences are very common and Resilience is a safe, specialized place to address your concerns.
