CAAP strives to provide therapies that have been proven to work, known as Evidence Based Therapy (EBT). Evidence Based Therapy uses techniques that are based on scientific evidence to understand and treat behavioral and mental health issues.

CBT differs from many other therapies because of the focus on how thoughts, feelings and behaviors are connected and and how they affect one another. At CAAP, we work with each family to develop a specific and individualized treatment plan, to help change patient's unhelpful thinking and behavioral patterns.
