In-vivo (real-life) exposure therapy is the most highly recommended treatment for specific phobia. It has been studied thoroughly for decades and has been found to be much more effective than other treatments, including imaginal exposure. Traumatic crashes are now thought to be the single-greatest cause of the development of ptsd and subsequent phobia in North America and so referrals to specialized companies such as Appian Way, which provide a safe, controllable therapeutic environment for exposure to take place, are becoming more and more important.
Appian Way is the leading provider of exposure therapy assessments and treatment in the south GTA and Niagara regions, and is trusted by dozens of psychological clinics, occupational therapy clinics, as well as by general and specialist physicians. We work in concert with these referring health professionals (most usually psychologists) as well as with lawyers handling our client's claim process.
