Benefits of Evidence-Based Therapy

EBTs are scientifically-proven therapies that are guided by relevant data. Patient preferences are prioritized, which maximizes their options and adds flexibility to individual treatment plans. Evidence-based therapy is safe and consistent treatment, so your recovery is not left up to chance.

Some additional benefits include:

Lasting Results

The American Psychological Association created the policies for EBT using the best research available. Their studies have shown that these therapy treatments work due to the combination of clinical training and science.

Highest Quality Treatment

Our licensed clinical staff is trained in therapy treatments that are proven to be effective. This means they had to learn and follow certain guidelines for how they provide care.

Clinically Effective & Cost Effective

Since these kinds of treatments are scientifically proven to be effective, the chances of relapse are less likely. This means you’ll be able to save more money in the long run.

More Accountability for Therapists

EBT requires specialized training in the different kinds of therapies. Treatment options aren’t based on the therapist’s mood, they are backed by training and scientific results.

Get the Tools You Need for Mental Health and Addiction Struggles

Mental health and addiction often go hand-in-hand. We will work on them both with you at Sandstone.

Medication management can be an important part of the treatment process. If medication is recommended, our medication provider will see the client on a regular basis until an ongoing provider is established. If a client has an outside provider and they would like to continue to guide their medication during Sandstone IOP, a release will be required to ensure integrated care.

The mental health program may be appropriate for a young adult who is using substances to cope with their mental health issues. If substance use continues to be the primary issue being addressed, then a SUD program may be the correct care and a referral will be made.

Our young adult (18-30), Mental Health IOP is a comprehensive, collaborative outpatient program that meets 4 times a week for 3 hours a day. Our intimate, small groups focus on a well-balanced recovery, utilizing weekly multifamily group, academic/vocation “adulting” skill building 2 times weekly; specialized group therapy led by licensed clinicians and medical providers who are available to meet participants for medication management and collaborate weekly with each clinician. Clinical groups are a combination of skills-based programs emphasizing the use of DBT and CBT, and person-centered process groups for individuals experiencing mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and previous trauma.

Family plays a vital role in the overall wellness of each individual served. Individual family sessions are offered bi-weekly to examine the role the family plays in creating new patterns of behavior and changing old behavior that reinforced negative behaviors. Connection is key in recovery. Our program also utilizes weekly Multi-Family group to reinforce new skills being learned in groups, as well as a source of support and guidance.

The young adult mental health program runs from 9am-12pm on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday of each week. In addition, the program provides 2 hours of Academic/Vocational work per week, on Tuesday and Thursday from 1-2pm.
