The Integrated Therapies Program Integrated Therapies Program
The Integrated Therapies Program at Butler Hospital provides evidence-based treatment centered on existential and interpersonal therapy. The program is offered in a partial hospital setting and provides a combination of treatment and therapies designed to work best for each individual person.
The Integrated Therapies Program provides specialized care for people struggling with depression, anxiety, substance abuse and other psychiatric disorders. Patients arrive at the hospital each morning and stay for six hours a day. At the end of the day, they return home to practice the interpersonal and coping skills learned in the program. These programs have proven to be effective treatment options for patients whose symptoms or level of functioning require more intensive treatment than outpatient care can provide but do not need inpatient hospitalization.

Program Highlights

The Integrated Therapies Program provides individual, group and family therapy; medication management; and aftercare planning tailored to your needs in a supportive, structured environment. Your treatment team will empower you to maximize your potential through respect and compassion. Throughout the program, you may be asked to complete mood questionnaires to help your treatment team monitor your progress and recovery.

The program integrates multiple types of evidenced-based therapies, including:

Existential Therapy explores matters that often bring people to therapy, such as a desire to find their own meaning and purpose in life. It also addresses basic concerns of being human such as:
  • Responsibility.
  • Isolation.
  • Freedom.
  • Death.
Interpersonal Group is a small group session that helps you to improve communication skills, initiate meaningful relationships, manage conflict, and improve social support networks. Focus Group is an educational group that focuses on a variety of coping skills, including:
  • Stress management.
  • Assertiveness training.
  • Emotion regulation.
  • Relaxation techniques.
  • Anxiety and depression symptom management.
  • Relapse prevention.
Individual Therapy includes one-on-one sessions between you and your therapist that incorporate the therapeutic approach that works best for each individual person. That may include any combination of therapy approaches, such as:
  • Psychodynamic therapy.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy.
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy.
  • Supportive and motivational therapy.

These sessions are tailored to each patient's unique needs and strengths.
