Bethesda Workshops is a non-profit organization that offers intensive workshops at a price more affordable than most other clinical options. Admittedly, the cost can seem quite high when it’s first considered. In the overall picture, though, a workshop is less expensive than any other treatment alternative.
Consider these facts:
- Most “intensives” provide only around six to eight hours of focus daily. A Bethesda Workshop involves 10-12 hours of specific, therapist-led treatment each full day, which translates to approximately 35 hours of directed help by professionals with advanced training in the field.
- This intensive help is a real bargain. At a fee of $125 per hour, which is the minimum rate for therapy in most places, 35 hours of counseling costs $4,375. The workshop fee of $2,750 is significantly less, and it includes all lodging and meals.
- The only additional expense to attend a workshop is travel, and Nashville is conveniently located within a day’s drive from half of the geographic continental United States.
