Treatment At Behavioral Health Alternatives

Conditions Treated

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.

Levels Of Care

Outpatient:

Outpatient programs cater to individuals who are in good medical condition and are not at a heightened risk of relapse, including those who have successfully finished their inpatient treatment. These programs usually build upon clients' existing treatment strategies, providing ongoing addiction counseling and educational support for recovery. Individuals who enter outpatient care right after detoxification may also undergo medical and psychological evaluations, followed by the creation of personalized treatment plans. Most outpatient rehabilitation centers offer various levels of care tailored to meet each client's specific needs.

Treatment Modalities

Couples/family therapy:

Couples Therapy is a specialized form of counseling designed to help couples navigate and improve their relationships. In this therapeutic process, a trained therapist or counselor works with couples to address communication issues, conflicts, and emotional challenges within their partnership. Couples Therapy provides a safe and supportive environment for couples to explore their feelings, understand each other's perspectives, and develop effective strategies for building stronger, more fulfilling connections. It can be instrumental in fostering healthier relationships, enhancing intimacy, and promoting long-term relationship satisfaction.

Group counseling:

Group Therapy is a therapeutic space where individuals battling addiction come together to share experiences, gain insights, and support one another on their journey to recovery. Facilitated by trained professionals, this setting fosters communal healing and empowers participants to overcome the challenges of addiction through collective strength and understanding.

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.

Activity therapy:

Activity Therapy refers to a therapeutic approach utilized in rehab centers to promote physical, emotional, cognitive, and social healing. Through structured and guided activities, patients are encouraged to engage in tasks that stimulate the mind, enhance motor skills, foster interpersonal relationships, and bolster self-esteem. By participating in diverse activities, from arts and crafts to group games, patients not only distract from negative thoughts or behaviors but also develop coping mechanisms, resilience, and a sense of purpose. It's a holistic way of enhancing an individual's overall well-being while in the recovery process.

Telemedicine/telehealth therapy:

Telehealth provides a secure and handy way to access behavioral health care from your home. It eliminates the need for travel, time off work, or organizing childcare. A range of services, including individual therapy, group sessions, and monitoring for anxiety and depression, are available remotely. Rest assured, telehealth video sessions are not recorded, ensuring your information remains as confidential as in-person consultations.

Abnormal involuntary movement scale:

The AIMS is a tool with 12 criteria clinicians use to evaluate the intensity of dyskinesias, especially in facial, limb, and torso movements, in patients on neuroleptic drugs. It also examines the overall impact, the degree of disability caused, and how conscious and distressed the patient is about these movements. The AIMS is widely utilized in research studies of antipsychotic drugs to check for tardive dyskinesia. Its straightforward structure and quick assessment process make regular clinical checks by professionals or other qualified individuals convenient.
