As a supplement to the individual and family therapy you already have in place, Riverview’s Intensive Anxiety Clinic offers a higher level of care to teach children and adolescents the basic skills necessary to effectively manage their anxiety and lead fuller, more enjoyable lives. Riverview’s Intensive Anxiety Clinic serves as an excellent proactive measure for those beginning to show serious signs of impairment as well as an after-care option for kids who have completed intensive outpatient or partial hospitalization programs.

Our clinics consist of an initial assessment and an individual session to determine goals. The grade-level groups meet on a bi-weekly basis and cover a 20-week curriculum focused on anxiety management. We use evidence-based Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT).
There are also 4 monthly parenting groups focusing on education and techniques on how to best support your struggling child and regular contact and updates with the child’s primary therapist*.
