Intensive Personalized Psychotherapy

This is the core of our program: We have licensed psychiatrists and clinicians at our treatment center during regular hours of operation, and a depth of professional experience with the best current, evidence-based therapies. CCI’s individualized treatment approach creates highly customized action plans. We design wrap-around therapy strategies with a team approach.

Our full-time psychiatrists are involved in all aspects of our highly-integrated treatment milieu, attending team meetings and communicating regularly with other therapists via email and phone conversations. Utilizing an experiential or “hands-on” approach, our case managers engage with the client and begin forging a relationship of trust. Together they begin identifying and practicing life skills in need of improvement. At CCI we hold to the belief that it is skills, not pills, that sustain mental health. Medications are used as needed to stabilize the client and lay a foundation of receptivity to other, more sustainable therapies. The goal, evaluated with daily monitoring, is to reduce or even eliminate medications when they are no longer deemed necessary for the client’s well-being.

Psychiatry – Each client is assessed by a Crownview psychiatrist and is seen regularly for follow-up appointments throughout the course of treatment.

Individual Therapy – Each client is assigned a highly qualified individual therapist who provides a pre-determined number of personal therapy hours per week. They work together to create a therapeutic alliance, help the client identify and correct problem areas and begin arresting self-defeating behavior. When the causes of problematic behaviors are identified, the old thought patterns and coping mechanisms are replaced with new ones in a methodical, self-reinforcing way. As the client begins to practice these new tools and begins to achieve successes, self-esteem and self-efficacy begin to develop. Our full range of psychiatric and pharmacological services include the following and more:

• Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

• Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

• Milieu Therapies

• Solution-Focused Therapies

• Biofeedback

• Experiential Therapies

• EMDR (Eye Movement and Desensitization Reprocessing)

• Nutrition Training and Coaching

• Yoga, Exercise and Gym Memberships

• Mindfulness and Meditation

• Acupuncture (by request)

• Equine (Horseback) Therapy

• Counseling the Family

We constantly monitor the responses our clients have to the pharmacological regimen we develop for them, and are careful to adjust when necessary to best effect.

Group Therapy – As clients begin to get involved in the group therapy process, they begin to identify with one another and learn that they are not alone. Bonds of trust are formed and differences are “worked out,” teaching our clients how to establish, maintain and nurture healthy and lasting relationships. Often with mental illness and addiction, sufferers lose self-confidence, and become trapped in relationships where drugs and alcohol are the common denominator. Over time, this behavior further deepens feelings of insecurity, stifling emotional growth and maturity. The sufferer struggles with anger and resentment and exhibits childlike coping mechanisms. Facilitated group therapy challenges the client to mature emotionally by utilizing new skills, resulting in self-efficacy and confidence.

Therapy for the Family – A client's family and other loved ones should be part, if at all possible, of the treatment plan. They are often in need of counseling and therapy themselves - something CCI has championed from the start, addressing each of these needs in an inclusive way. We host regular Family Weekends to give time for re-integrating clients with their failies in a controlled setting and providing opportunity for celebration of the client's progress.
