IDT offers 7 independent phases of group programming for clients with mood, anxiety, and/or trauma related disorders. These treatment phases incorporate evidence-based practices including Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectal Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) Mindfulness, and Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP). Morning or afternoon streams are available for most phases of treatment. Programs range from 4-12 weeks in duration. Psychiatric follow-up is provided in some phases of higher intensity. Each client attending group treatment is seen every one to two weeks by a primary clinician. Requests for consultation can also be made within IDT for psychiatry, psychology, occupational therapy, pharmacy, recreational therapy and peer support.
