Treatment plans are individualized and developed for each patient by Compass’ multidisciplinary team. Evidence-based therapies used to help patients develop more effective coping skills include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT).
Group therapy is the primary modality of treatment so as to provide patients with opportunities to normalize their experience, gain feedback from peers, and practice effective coping skills together. Patients attend trauma based group therapy sessions and meet individually with a trauma therapist on a weekly basis to address the patient’s symptoms.
Families are encouraged but not required to participate in family therapy as it greatly facilitates the patient’s improvement.
