What Makes Us Different
At ITT, all sessions are individual ones. We provide an individualized, intensive five- to ten-day outpatient treatment for trauma as an alternative to outpatient and hospital programs that use a combination of individual and group therapy sessions.
Our treatment model does not require reliving the traumatic events in order to thoroughly process them and make them past tense.
Substantial gains in short time
A person can have 30 hours of therapy in a 5-day treatment. A 10-day program is roughly the equivalent of more than a year’s worth of weekly therapy. With back-to-back sessions, there is a momentum that develops that condenses the time required to deal with each specific trauma.
With all sessions being individual ones, no one other than your treatment team will know about your history. And, since the program is private pay, insurance companies will not have access to your records.
Our Mission, Vision, Values

What is a typical day at ITT?
All sessions are individual ones. For adults, we start at 9 AM with “morning rounds” where the treatment team members meet with you to plan the day. We break for lunch at noon and resume at 1 PM. The day ends at 4:30 PM so there are over 30 hours of treatment in a 5-day week.
For children, we schedule the number of hours in the program according to age and developmental level. Many adolescents can do a full day.
Lunch is on your own. There are restaurants, grocery stores, and fast food places for all budgets and food preferences. We will give you a map and make suggestions for eating and shopping.
