Types of Mental Health Treatments at our Psychiatric Health Center
Medication is one treatment we use to treat various mental health disorders. Psychotropic drugs have been used since ancient times for their mind-altering effects. We prescribe medications for various mental disorders, including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
These psychiatric medications come in capsules and tablets, skin patches, liquids, or injectable solutions. And there are several psychotropic medications. You can take some every day as maintenance therapy; others need to be taken as needed for acute situations, such as panic attacks. You must take some under a doctor’s supervision.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is one of several forms of psychotherapy that effectively treat mental health conditions. Cognitive-behavioral therapy, or CBT, focuses on identifying patterns in thinking that may lead to feelings and behaviors associated with negative states such as anxiety and depression. In doing so, behavioral health treatment services work to change both thinking and behavior. We have successfully used CBT with many mental health conditions, including PTSD and eating disorders like anorexia nervosa.
Psychiatric health centers, especially those part of a hospital system, may offer crisis services such as an emergency hotline, crisis counseling, or even temporary shelter. These services can be beneficial if you’re experiencing severe depression and are thinking about self-harm.
Our anxiety recovery center has crisis services that offer support to people in an emotional or mental state of distress. Call us when you feel like you’re in a crisis, when your symptoms have worsened, or even if you need some emotional support. Our crisis services also help connect individuals with other treatment options, such as medication management and therapy.
At our mental health management center, we offer peer support groups for those living with mental illness. Peer support is helpful for those struggling with adjusting to treatment, coping skills, and dealing with day-to-day life. These groups comprise peers who have been there and understand what you’re going through. They can provide a unique opportunity to learn from others and vent and share advice on coping with similar situations.
We offer medication-assisted treatment, which uses medication and therapy to help those struggling with addiction. This approach is generally more effective than either option on its own. The most common types of medicine we use for medication-assisted treatment include methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone. These medications block some or all withdrawal symptoms and work to prevent relapses by keeping opiates out of your brain’s receptors for specific periods.
