Besides medication De Evenaar provides the following opportunities for therapy:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) 
  • Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET) 
  • Heart coherence training

Verbal and non-verbal therapy

Both in in-patient and in out-patient care verbal and non-verbal therapy is applied. De Evenaar pays attention to the physical condition of clients and to experience-oriented therapy where being active is most. Besides talking about emotions clients in in-patient care have a day-programme that includes psychomotor therapy, and activity, creative and drama therapy. Clients in out-patient care may use several verbal or non-verbal therapies on an individual basis. 


If possible, family members are being involved in treatment. When one or more family members suffer from a psychiatric problem, family therapy can be integrated in treatment. Several forms of family support can be joined, at home or in a clinical setting. Family members are also provided with care how to take care for their loved ones without being overloaded. Temporary support through home visits can be arranged.

Daily activities

GGZ Drenthe Mental Health Care provides a number of daily activities that can be used by clients who receive treatment from De Evenaar. For instance, there is a general activity centre that includes a bicycle repair shop and a wood workshop. If necessary, clients will be accompanied to regional activity centres.
