During the course of CPT, the primary focus is to help patients gain an understanding of, and modify the meaning attributed to, their traumatic event. In pursuit of this objective, an important goal of CPT is to decrease the pattern of avoiding the trauma memory so that beliefs and meanings can be further evaluated and understood within the original context.

This program integrates social recovery into your life thereby improving the opportunity for long lasting sobriety.
EMDR psychotherapy is an information processing therapy and uses an eight phase approach to address the experiential contributors of a wide range of pathologies. It attends to the past experiences that have set the groundwork for pathology, the current situations that trigger dysfunctional emotions, beliefs and sensations, and the positive experience needed to enhance future adaptive behaviors and mental health.

Dr. Gottschalk (or Dr. G as he is known around WTC) has been with Wilmington Treatment Center since 2005. Earlier in his medical career pathway, Dr. Gottschalk functioned as a medical oncologist treating patients whose lives and the lives of their families were disrupted by an oftentimes fatal disease. He soon became weary and his zeal for life dampened by the fatalistic atmosphere that pervaded the world of adult medical oncology. In an eerily similar manner his subsequent career, Addiction Medicine, deals with patients and families that have had their lives disrupted by a potentially fatal disease as well. In the field medical oncology, the truly curable cases hold a minority position in the universe of neoplastic diseases. There were many times in oncology that he questioned the merit of his efforts and had trouble discerning the measurable benefits to the patients from services provided. In Addiction Medicine, 100% of the patients he interacts with are salvageable.More
