Treatment Options

An important first step in the treatment process is to educate yourself about the most current ideas and practices. Keep in mind that no single approach is best for everyone. Children and adolescents, in particular, have different needs than adults. You may need to experiment with different combinations of treatments and tools to find what works for you.
