Experts in the Treatment of OCD and Other Anxiety Disorders
Sage Anxiety Treatment Program is now offering a Child and Adolescent Intensive Program for Anxiety. This program is for those ages 5 to 14 who struggle with moderate to severe anxiety. This specialized treatment program utilizes mindfulness- and evidence-based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (“ACT”) in concert with behavioral Exposure and Response Prevention.
During treatment, clients learn to experience their anxiety differently, to stop the struggle agains it, to approach things they now avoid and to disengage from disturbing thoughts. ACT-Based Exposure allows children and adolescents to stop focusing on controlling the anxiety and instead focus on doing things that make their lives meaningful and fun. ACT is very experiential and, therefore, is well suited for children and adolescents alike.
This Intensive Program for Anxiety is divided into separate tracks for children and adolescents ages 5 to 7, 8 to 11, and 12 to 14. There is some group interaction as well as individual treatment. The program meets for two hoiurs per day, two days per week at times that allow for school attendance during treatment.
