Our Treatment Approach

CREST stands for Cognitive Rehabilitation and Exposure/Sorting Therapy. Our innovative and patient-centered approach includes both of these components:

Cognitive Rehabilitation is aimed at changing ways of thinking and organizing information through learning new skills and strategies. Our mental health professionals will meet with patients one on one to help enhance cognitive abilities, including flexible thinking, memory, and problem solving skills.

Exposure/Sorting Therapy is designed to help people gain control of the fear and distress associated with discarding items. We help patients make decisions about discarding and acquiring items, improving their own ability to make choices about possessions.

Each patient receives 26 sessions of individualized treatment.
