Treatment At Unison Behavioral Health - Child and Adolescent Clinic in Ware County

Conditions Treated

Alcoholism:

Alcohol addiction is a health problem where drinking takes control over a person's life. It affects how their brain thinks and acts, leading to strong desires to drink, bad feelings, sudden actions, and discomfort when not drinking. To help someone with this problem, there are treatments like detox, counseling, group support, and learning coping methods. While treatment can't completely cure the urge to drink, it helps people regain control of their lives and feel better overall.

Mental health treatment:

Mental health treatment involves various therapies and support services provided by licensed professionals to address mental health issues. These interventions, which can include therapy, medication, and holistic approaches, aim to enhance well-being, improve coping, and empower individuals to lead fulfilling lives. It's personalized, comprehensive care for mental health challenges.

Substance use treatment:

Substance use rehabilitation is a comprehensive treatment approach designed to assist individuals struggling with addiction to drugs or alcohol. This form of rehabilitation addresses both the physical dependency, often starting with detoxification, and the psychological triggers, using various therapeutic methods. The objective is to empower individuals to achieve and maintain sobriety, while equipping them with the tools and coping strategies needed to reintegrate into society and lead a substance-free life.

Co-occurring Disorders:

Dual-diagnosis rehabilitation centers specialize in the treatment of individuals who suffer from a co-occurring mental health disorder and a substance use disorder. This complex interplay between addiction and mental health can make recovery more challenging, as each condition may exacerbate the symptoms of the other. Dual-diagnosis rehabilitation centers offer an integrated approach that addresses both issues simultaneously and often includes a comprehensive assessment for an Integrated Treatment Approach through Holistic Therapies, including family therapy and aftercare treatment.

Levels Of Care

Outpatient:

Outpatient treatment in a rehab center offers flexible therapy sessions, typically ranging from 1-3 hours per week, allowing individuals to continue daily activities while receiving care. In contrast, intensive outpatient programs demand a more rigorous commitment, often involving 9-15 hours weekly, providing a more immersive therapeutic environment without the need for inpatient stays.

Treatment Modalities

Couples/family therapy:

Couples Therapy in rehab helps couples facing addiction recovery by providing specialized counseling to improve their relationship. Expert therapists guide them through communication, conflict resolution, and trust-building, promoting lasting recovery and a stronger partnership.

Group counseling:

Group counseling provides a supportive environment where individuals share personal experiences and insights, under the guidance of a professional counselor. It facilitates self-awareness, fosters interpersonal learning, and helps members work through personal and relational challenges. Through shared dialogue and reflection, individuals learn coping strategies, gain emotional support, and experience personal growth within a communal setting.

Cognitive behavioral therapy:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapeutic approach that emphasizes the interconnectedness of thoughts, emotions, and actions. It promotes healthy reactions to thoughts and emotions, steering individuals away from harmful responses such as substance abuse. Proven effective for various addiction recoveries, CBT enhances an individual's self-awareness and self-control. Through CBT, individuals learn to better gauge their emotional well-being, communicate more effectively, and handle stress without resorting to drugs or alcohol.

Dialectical behavior therapy:

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive-behavioral therapeutic approach primarily to treat individuals with borderline personality disorder. It combines standard cognitive-behavioral techniques with distress tolerance, acceptance, and mindfulness concepts. DBT emphasizes the balance between accepting and changing behaviors, aiming to help patients build life skills, regulate emotions, and improve interpersonal relationships. It has since been adapted for and shown effectiveness in treating a variety of other mental health conditions.

Integrated Mental and Substance Use Disorder treatment:

Integrated Mental and Substance Use Disorder treatment is a comprehensive approach to treating individuals with both mental health and substance use disorders. It aims to address both conditions simultaneously through a coordinated and integrated approach. The goal is to improve overall well-being and reduce the risk of relapse.

Activity therapy:

Activity Therapy is a therapeutic method where patients are encouraged to participate in organized and guided activities that stimulate their mental faculties, improve motor skills, nurture interpersonal connections, and boost self-esteem. Engaging in a variety of activities, ranging from creative arts and crafts to group games, not only serves as a distraction from negative thoughts or behaviors but also facilitates the development of coping strategies, resilience, and a sense of purpose. It offers a comprehensive approach to enhancing an individual's overall well-being during the recovery journey.

Telemedicine/telehealth therapy:

Telehealth Therapy is a remote care option that allows individuals to access mental health services via digital technology, such as secure video conferencing. This mode enables patients to engage with therapists from their homes, offering flexibility and overcoming geographical limitations. Ideal for those in rural areas, with mobility issues, or tight schedules, Telehealth Therapy ensures quality mental health support is always within reach.

Smoking/vaping/tobacco cessation counseling:

Tobacco Cessation Counseling is a specialized form of guidance and support aimed at helping individuals quit tobacco use. Through a combination of motivational strategies, behavioral techniques, and education on the health risks associated with tobacco, trained counselors assist users in understanding their addiction, developing a personalized quit plan, and navigating the challenges of withdrawal and relapse prevention. This counseling approach can significantly increase the likelihood of successfully quitting and maintaining a tobacco-free lifestyle.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy:

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is a psychotherapeutic approach designed primarily to treat trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It involves the patient recalling traumatic events while undergoing bilateral sensory input, typically guided eye movements. EMDR aims to facilitate processing distressing memories, reducing their long-term impact, and helping individuals develop more adaptive coping mechanisms.

Abnormal involuntary movement scale:

The "Abnormal Involuntary Movement Scale" (AIMS) is a clinician-rated tool used to evaluate the presence and severity of involuntary movements, often associated with certain medications. It's commonly employed in assessing tardive dyskinesia in patients on antipsychotic drugs.
