Harold established the MSAM center while at AOTCP to better serve clients with the integration of not only standard CBT treatments but also mindfulness based interventions. MSAM is built on the philosophy that the needs of each individual are unique and on occasion complex. The treatment is guided at each phase by attention to the person and their specific needs utilizing a full range of treatment modalities as indicated. The desired outcome to give the client the means and methods on which to thrive in their chosen environment and lead a life that they value.
From the initial assessment the individual will benefit from guidance to a recommended level of (outpatient) care. One weekly individual treatment is most often recommended and fits the needs of the majority of people seeking treatment. The center, however offers an array of options for care if needed, individual, intensive treatment, mindfulness groups, ocd support group and weekend retreats. Please read more about the center in the “MSAM Group Therapy” section.
