ABOUT TALK THERAPY PSYCHOLOGY CENTER
Talk Therapy Psychology Center is a state-certified drug and alcohol addiction treatment program in San Diego, Calif, offering intensive outpatient (IOP) care and therapy sessions for individuals, couples, and entire families.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment at Talk Therapy begins with a comprehensive intake process where clients and staff work together to establish a treatment plan, the frequency of sessions, and the approaches used. In the IOP, for instance, clients may complete treatment in eight to 12 or more weeks, though the initial plan is subject to adjustment every 30 days. Regardless of progress and changes made along the way, IOP participants can expect as many as nine hours of group therapy and two hours of individual therapy each week.
The program offers both 12-step and non-12 step approaches like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), the Stages of Change, and motivational interviewing (MI). Using these therapies, clients come to identify negative thought patterns and beliefs that may be contributing to their issues, develop a greater sense of balance in their daily living, and gain motivation to “abstain, moderate, cut back, or engage in less harmful use.” Other goals include learning how to set and achieve realistic goals and improve communication and coping skills.
For those not in need of this intensive a level of care, individual therapy provides clients with opportunity to address more sensitive issues while there are therapy sessions available for couples and entire families struggling in their relationships. According to its website, Talk Therapy also provides partial hospitalization (PHP) and day treatment, though there are no further details.
Treatment at Talk Therapy is led by a state-licensed clinical psychologist and a master’s level therapist who is in the final stages of her doctorate degree. Both have extensive experience in CBT and other evidence-based approaches.
