Potential client contacts our office to inquire and discuss interest in the program. During this phone call, our admissions coordinator works with a client to determine whether an assessment is scheduled.
Assessment and Consultation
A biopsychosocial interview and assessment is completed by one of our master’s level licensed psychotherapists. This includes gathering detailed background information about your strengths, needs, abilities and preferences. The therapist will discuss the assessment findings with the team and create an individualized treatment plan. If it is determined you would benefit from a different level of care, we will provide treatment recommendations and referral options. We do not provide official DWI assessments.
Monthly Treatment Program
While each client’s treatment plan varies, participants generally engage in five individual therapeutic contacts per week, plus psychiatry. Treatment plans consist of a tailored combination of psychiatry, individual and/or family psychotherapy, recovery coaching, employment/career/educational exploration, therapeutic wilderness experiences, intuitive astrology, acupuncture, herbal medicine and more. Our team collaborates daily and holds weekly treatment team meetings, allowing us to offer our clients the highest quality care. Most clients are with us for a minimum of 3-6 months.
Step-Down Treatment Program
Similar to the full program, we offer a step-down option for clients who meet their initial goals. This is available to program clients who have spent a minimum of three months in our full program.
If clinically appropriate, we can integrate specialty therapies into your treatment program:
Acupuncture is an ancient art that has prevented and treated disease for thousands of years. A low-risk, effective option for those considering medication or surgery, it is also for those who want to maintain their good health. Hair-thin sterile needles are used to stimulate specific points which the practitioner has determined will both effect symptomatic relief and treat the root cause of the imbalance.
Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)
At Widening Circles, we offer ketamine-assisted psychotherapy as part of our comprehensive approach to wellness. We have found that this unique type of treatment is most effective when paired with other forms of therapy that complement and deepen the work. KAP is a unique therapeutic method used to address a variety of mental health conditions, including treatment refractory depression and post-traumatic stress. It involves the use of the psychoactive substance ketamine to enhance and deepen the therapeutic process, and the use of psychotherapy and other integrative forms of treatment to amplify and prolong the curative effects of ketamine. We utilize troches (losanges) in our ketamine sessions.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
We have partnered with one of our in-house, sister practices, Willow Wellness and Recovery to offer MAT for those struggling with opioid and/or alcohol use disorders.
Quantitative Electroencephalography (qEEG) + Neurofeedback
A qEEG (or brain map) measures, records and analyzes electrical activity in the brain and compares it to normative or average values. Brainwave data reveal a detailed picture of how your brain is functioning relative to these normative databases. This precise measurement of brainwave activity reveals which areas of the brain are functioning optimally, and which areas can be improved upon during neurofeedback training.
