Nsight Psychology & Addiction Reviews and Ratings Details
The following is based on a combination of Surveys of Alumni, Staff, Loved Ones, and Reviews and Ratings from around the web.
Reviews at a Glance
- Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)
Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.
- Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
Nsight Psychology & Addiction provides both primary mental health (mood disorders, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, trauma/PTSD) and substance abuse treatment. While most programs talk about offering treatment for dual diagnosis issues, they are not staffed to provide those services. Nsight has 10 licensed therapists and a psychiatrist on staff who specialize in trauma, mood disorders, eating disorders, substance abuse, and family systems.
- Intensive Outpatient
Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
- Individualized Treatment
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. With 10 licensed therapists on staff you can be assured that you will received an individualized treatment plan and more individual therapy sessions per week than most other treatment programs can offer.
- Process Abuse Treatment
Not all addictions involve mood-altering chemicals. The term “process addiction” describes the unhealthy use of behaviors (including eating, gambling, sexual activity, shopping, internet use, etc.) that has spiraled out of control and into the realm of addiction.
