Treatment plans are individualized and developed for each patient by Compass’ multidisciplinary team. Evidence-based therapies used to help adolescents develop more effective coping skills include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
Group therapy is the primary modality of treatment so as to provide patients with opportunities to normalize their experience, gain feedback from same-age peers, and practice effective coping skills and social skills together. Parents are also encouraged to use online individual check-ins to address specific concerns.
Families are required to participate in family therapy as it greatly facilitates the adolescent’s improvement.
