Upper East Health provides the treatments that best serve each patient’s individual needs.

Our treatment consists of evidence-based approaches such as motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral approaches to identify triggers, dialectical behavioral techniques to manage cravings, relapse prevention strategies, insight-oriented therapy to identify deeper causes, family assessment to resolve conflicts, treatment of co-morbid mental illness and addictions, and referral to appropriate 12-step-based recovery groups when appropriate. While our means are many, our main focus is clear: stopping self-destructive behaviors, and then addressing the underlying problem.
