Intensive Treatment

The Atlanta anxiety treatment office does not do residential treatment. You and your therapist will work together to figure out the best treatment options.

Intensive treatment is tailored to individuals who are fully motivated and committed to making a change as quickly as possible.  Using the latest research combined with evidence-based treatment, individuals suffering with anxiety will be able to live more fulfilling lives. With this intensive treatment, individuals do not have to spend months or years in therapy.

The intensive treatment is not for everyone.  It takes time, finances, and dedication in order to overcome the anxiety, but the benefits absolutely outweigh the cost.  This is ideal for someone who has a busy schedule or for individuals who are ready to end their suffering.  This treatment basically takes all of the elements in our traditional treatment and brings in all together in one week. Thus, it saves time and can save money over traditional treatment.

Overall, this is a wonderful alternative to the traditional therapy and has been proven to be very successful for certain people. We pride ourselves on getting out of the office and into the situations that bring up anxiety.  In these situations, we can deal with and break the thoughts and fears that come with anxiety.

Our intensive treatment programs are an efficient and effective way to get past anxiety. We spend a great deal of time with clients in our intensive treatment program and we get a high volume of requests.  The intensive program is not a good fit for everyone. We want to make sure that we can serve you as best as possible.
