Adult Integrated Treatment Program

Areas of Emphasis

Areas of program responsibility include the use of combined or sequential treatment approaches to improve long-term outcome. A major focus is improvement of efficacious psychopharmacological interventions to maximize symptomatic relief while minimizing adverse reactions. For example, medications may be combined with the full range of therapies (from behavior modification or other psychotherapies to rehabilitative remediation to milieu therapy) in individual, conjoint, or group settings. Multiple approaches within the same class of modalities (e.g., two drugs or two psychotherapies) would not be considered integrated treatment for programmatic purposes. Grants in this program are in all areas of program support.
