The Mood and Disorder Program is for Young Adults, as well as Seniors. Bright Path Program provides comprehensive treatment at several levels of intensity, ranging from:

  • Office-based evaluation treatment;
  • Intensive out-patient services; and
  • Community coordination with in-patient stabilization

The programs are offered to young adults and seniors who are experiencing new symptoms, worsening symptoms or a decrease in functioning.

Treatment is grounded in empirically based interventions and utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), skills training and pharmacological management.

Treatment Modalities

Medication and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) are often equally effective in treating depression. Chronic and more severe depression responds better to a combination of medication and therapy. Medication plus CBT is more effective than medications alone. About one in eight adults in the U.S. are taking medications that are prescribed for depression.

Interpersonal Therapy is a highly effective treatment for depression. Relationships affect our well-being, for better and for worse. Positive changes in the ways we relate to others can lead to a major mood boost and can also help prevent relapse.

Structured CBT delivered through the Internet leads to small but significant improvements in depression. Assistance from a therapist is likely to boost the effects of these programs.

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) prevents depression relapse, particularly among those with three or more episodes of depression. Those who receive MBCT are 34.0 percent less likely to relapse.

Diagnosis and Treatment Includes:

  • A full psycho-social and medical evaluation;
  • Individualized treatment planning;
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy;
  • Pharmacological management;
  • Mindfulness practice;
  • Anger management and emotion regulation;
  • Interpersonal effectiveness and assertiveness skills;
  • Distress tolerance skills;
  • Relapse prevention; and
  • Care management and ongoing collaboration with outside providers.

Two Levels of Treatment and Care are provided as follows:

Level I

Comprehensive Out-Patient

Each patient undergoes treatment including:

  • Case Management;
  • Individual CBT;
  • Coping Skills (DBT);
  • Weekly Group CBT; and
  • Pharmacological Management.

Level I clients also have access to health and wellness programming including fitness and nutrition programs, as well as yoga and massage.

This program takes place over an 8-10-week period after which care transfers back to community-based providers.

Level II

Life Skills Group

Each patient undergoes treatment including a weekly skills group for young adults and seniors who experience frequently recurring symptoms of their mood or anxiety disorder and a Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills training in addition to their existing out-patient therapy.

Most participant’s mood and anxiety symptoms go into remission. After programming, the client returns to their primary care clinician for maintenance treatment.
