Proven results through science.
Our treatment cycles have a maximum 10 clients and each location will host 8 cycles per year. Each individual is treated as such, rather than becoming another number in a large facility. Applicants selected to participate in CDP will receive comprehensive treatment using cutting-edge, researched-based methods and technology. Prior to treatment, all participants will complete a full psychological, neurological, and behavioral evaluation so each participant can receive individualized treatment that’s tailored to fit their personal needs.
Individual & Group Counseling
Participants will engage in a variety of individual and group counseling sessions that include Dr. Barclay’s resilience building curriculum, The Anatomy of a Resilient Mind. All participants will receive a prepublication copy which will also be used during sessions.
Participants will engage in and be taught a variety of mindfulness-based skills to be used for self-awareness and regulation. They will also have the ability to engage in marital and family counseling remotely.
When not in treatment over the weekends, participants will have the opportunity to participate--free of charge--in a variety of seasonal weekend activities that are popular in the Blue Ridge Mountain range. These activities include hiking, kayaking, skiing, horseback riding, etc. Participants will also have access to a gym if they desire to begin or maintain their daily workout.
LoRETA Brain Mapping technology allows us to see exactly what is happening in the brain. During our comprehensive intake evaluations, a full brain mapping session reveals each are of the brain and its activity in relation to other parts. Imaging occurs throughout treatment and again during a post-treatment evaluation. This information allows us to track progress in a quantifiable way. Currently, no other program for veterans has this ability.
Non-invasive Brain Stimulation
We use neurofeedback in addition to individual and group counseling sessions. Neurofeedback helps train the brain and has been shown to increase focus and help create a measurable decrease in depression and anxiety.
