The spectrum of mental health disorders are better understood and treated now more than ever before and the evolution of treatment is being advanced by pioneering treatment centers such as The Gateway Institute who specialize in a more personalized approach to treatment and recovery. For nearly ten years, Jim Sterner, Founder of The Gateway Institute, and his team have been providing OCD treatment using behavioral therapy techniques that integrate both traditional therapies and “outside the box” strategies, recognizing that each client comes with their own unique set of obesssions and compulsions so treatment should be tailored to their particular manifestations of OCD. Further, Gateway recognizes the importance of educating their clients and family members about the latest strategies and tools that help prepare clients for their battle against OCD. The education component is a key part of the overall treatment protocol and when combined with cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure response prevention (ERP), and mindfulness-based awareness training, clients are better equipped to ultimately end the cycle of OCD. —
Because of Gateway’s unique approach to treatment and their resulting success, they are regarded as one of the nation’s premier treatment facilities and are a “go-to” treatment center for our nation’s top hospitals and doctors who refer and entrust their patients to Gateway’s care for OCD treatment.
Clients of Gateway often travel to California from all over the country and abroad for this specialized treatment so Gateway is very pleased to expand its reach to the Scottsdale, Arizona area, offering many more people a treatment solution closer to home.
To kick off its expansion, the new Scottsdale center is providing a complimentary thirty-minute assessment to all in-state residents for a limited time. During the assessment, clients will have an opportunity to better understand OCD and anxiety treatment, as well as receive personal feedback about how their OCD and anxiety could be treated.
The new Scottsdale center will also offer many options of care, such as weekly sessions, individual and family support groups, a 3-week intensive OCD treatment program, as well as other treatment options. These programs provide a fully scalable solution that identifies the intensity of treatment needed for each client to take control of their lives, leaving the center with the tools they need for lifelong improvement.
Jim Sterner, founder of The Gateway Institute explains, “When Gateway opened, we made a commitment to go the extra mile to provide the highest quality of care possible to our clients. This means being available 24/7 to support clients through treatment. Our clients come to us in a very vulnerable state so we feel a deep sense of responsibility to be available through the challenges they face during treatment, assisting every step of the way in their recovery. Our clinicians are passionate about changing lives and have the tools to do it. All we need are clients who are ready and committed to overcome their OCD, and willing to take that leap of faith and entrust us to walk with them toward recovery.”
