What does Weill Cornell Medicine Psychiatry Specialty Center - Lower Manhattan offer?

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient programs are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person's specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.

Therapies Offered:

Family Therapy

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life. Their program provides evidence-based treatments that include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure with response prevention (ERP), behavioral therapy for tic disorders (CBIT), interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT), mindfulness-based therapies and psychodynamic approaches. Psychotherapy can be provided once or twice weekly and when appropriate more intensively several days a week. Psychotherapy may be recommended alone or in conjunction with a medication regimen. The type and duration of psychotherapy for each patient is based on their assessment and diagnosis.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Couples Therapy

Whether a marriage or other committed relationship, an intimate partnership is one of the most important aspects of a person's life. Drug and alcohol addiction affects both members of a couple in deep and meaningful ways, as does rehab and recovery. Couples therapy and other couples-focused treatment programs are significant parts of exploring triggers of addiction, as well as learning how to build healthy patterns to support ongoing sobriety.

Eating Disorder Treatment

Eating disorders in children and adolescents can be caused by a variety of factors and can present in many different ways. As a result, these conditions are often not diagnosed or treated until they have progressed to the point of significant impairment of a young person’s life. Despite the frequency with which eating disorders may be overlooked, their incidence is in fact quite high. Often, treatment of eating disorders in children and adolescents includes participation of parents and it is important for a clinician to coach caregivers in how best to address problematic behaviors, in addition to targeting any underlying disorders present in your child. Their team provides evidence-based approaches in family-based treatment as part of the overall multi-disciplinary treatment plan for eating disorders, which often includes working with a team of practitioners, such as psychologists and social workers, as a supplement to the care provided by our medical staff.
