Intensive Treatment

CBT has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment for many common problems. However, as for any treatment for any problem, it is important to deliver a large enough dose of the treatment to adequately address the problem. Fifty minutes once a week is an adequate dose of CBT for most people with mild to moderate symptoms, distress, and impairment in functioning. However, it may not be enough for people experiencing more severe symptoms, distress and disability. When people are experiencing more severe symptoms we can work with them to develop a more intensive treatment plan to deliver a larger dose of CBT. Sometimes that involves coming for more than one appointment per week, conducting treatment outside of the office with a behavioural assistant, and in some cases home visits.

Please note that for some people with severe disorders CBT is not enough. People with severe disorders may also need medical management or a residential program to achieve wellness, which are beyond our scope of services.

If we don’t believe that we can provide you with the intensity of treatment you need, we will try very hard to help you access more appropriate services.

If you would like to know about our more intensive treatment, please contact us at 416-363-4228 or info@cbtassociates.com and ask to speak to one of the Clinical Directors directly.
