Tested Under the Pandemic, LWC’s Treatment Approach Is Uniquely Equipped to Address Modern Pressures

December 1, 2021 | by Dr. Lesley Tate-Gould, PsyD, SEP

Lido Wellness Center’s treatment approach encompasses more than just our founders’ passion, our clinicians’ expertise, and our clients’ resiliency. Foundationally, it is based upon human connection. Through our philosophies and modalities, LWC emphasizes the importance of connection and reconnection between our clients and their loved ones, and the connections between our clients, themselves. We foster this environment by highly prioritizing group – as well as individual – psychotherapy, firmly believing that our clients’ acute needs require safe, consistent, and authentic human connection. This client-centric approach defines our position in the behavioral health community as a leading, and effective, outpatient treatment facility. It also paves our pathway into the future, enabling us to maintain consistency and excellence amid the uncertainty and turbulence that new challenges bring.

In fact, LWC’s emphasis on human connection guided our pandemic response, its aftershocks, and the unique mental health challenges the pandemic has surfaced. With close attention to federal and state health guidelines and recommendations, we curated a pandemic experience with its roots in personal and community health and safety while, nevertheless, maintaining, to the fullest extent possible, the human connection element that’s so valuable to our clients’ recoveries. Not only did the pandemic introduce response and mitigative/adaptive challenges, it also brought additional mental health concerns that ushered more clients through our door. Notably, the pandemic seemed to exacerbate areas of past concern that, previously, would likely have been swept aside or ignored. It placed every feeling, experience, and thought under a microscope —heightening past fears and intensifying previous traumas, and therefore manifesting those issues into present symptoms. 

LWC’s approach and belief in the importance of human connection in the healing and recovery process guided our response to these emerging challenges, and provided the foundation for continuing client success despite the chaos surrounding us during these times. We strongly believe that the guidance of a trusted therapist, supplemented by a group of supportive peers, addresses these emergent situations uniquely and with remarkably replicative success.

I am not just renewed. I AM NEW. I am found new in this freedom that breaking up the trauma has brought. I feel a true sense of clarity and oneness to the highest degree ever in my life. I was able to fully fall into trust with Lido Wellness Center and your clinicians. I was mightily impressed by the overall integrity, clinical and administrative competencies. You instilled such confidence in me about the paths and processes that lead to deep healing. I leave better and strengthened on all levels.

Going to Lido Wellness Center gave me a second chance at life. It equipped me with the tools and resources necessary to live my life the best way I can. I wouldn’t trade my time at Lido for anything.

Lido Wellness Center saved my life. I am endlessly grateful for the knowledgeable, empathetic, and supportive staff members that truly went above and beyond to provide a safe space to heal. Each staff member showed me kindness like I had never experienced before, and believed in me even when I was struggling to believe in myself. It is clear that the Lido Wellness Center team genuinely cares about every individual that walks through those doors, both during treatment and beyond through alumni services. Choosing to fully dive deep into treatment at Lido was one of the hardest and most rewarding decisions I have ever made, and I am now living a life that I never thought was possible.
