Insight Behavioral Health Centers Treatment Philosophy

Insight’s treatment approach is rooted in mindfulness.  The Mindfulness-Based perspective uses behavioral interventions to address behavioral health symptoms while simultaneously seeking to understand the underlying meaning and function of behaviors.  Mindfulness-Based interventions are congruent across Insight’s programming, creating a common language from which to approach treatment.  Examples of Mindfulness-Based treatments utilized at Insight include Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT.)

As a member of the Eating Recovery Center family of programs, Insight’s treatment philosophy acknowledges the importance of assessment, intervention and discharge planning in successfully addressing behavioral health concerns.  A fully comprehensive assessment is crucial in identifying co-occurring conditions and developing an individualized treatment plan. Evidence-based interventions, including those based in mindfulness, help patients and families alike interrupt maladaptive thoughts and behaviors and live a values-rich life. Insight’s support for patients and families does not end at the time of discharge—rather, the treatment team carefully develops a personalized discharge plan, and offers several aftercare services and alumni support programs for patients that do not have an established treatment team.
