Program for Adults Dealing with OCD & Complex Anxiety

Program Overview

The Fresh Start Outpatient Program extends AIGAS’s commitment to fostering meaningful, values-based lives for individuals grappling with Anxiety. Rooted in daily Exposure and Response Prevention therapy (ERP), this program empowers participants to learn the art of tolerating distressing thoughts and physical sensations rather than seeking their elimination. Additionally, a robust emphasis on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) complements skill-building in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). By encouraging participants to navigate Anxiety in alignment with their values, the program illuminates the potential for a fulfilling life despite the challenges of uncertainty or discomfort.
