Tourette

We are certified in CBIT, a non-medicated treatment for Tourette’s disorder consisting of three important components:

(a) Training the patient to be more aware of his or her tics and the urge to tic.
(b) Training patients to do competing for behavior when they feel the urge to tic.
(c) Making changes to day to day activities in ways that can be helpful in reducing tics. CBIT is a highly-structured therapy administered once a week by a therapist.  The standard treatment is eight sessions over ten weeks, but it can be adjusted to meet the needs of the patient and his or her family.
