Treatment At Austin Lakes Hospital - Psychiatric Hospital

Conditions Treated

Mental health treatment:

Mental health facilities offer a safe space for individuals to get specialized care. Trained experts create personal plans using therapies, possibly including medication. The goal is to help individuals cope better and lead fulfilling lives, with constant support and a community feel.

Alcoholism:

Alcohol addiction is a condition where someone feels a strong and uncontrollable urge to drink alcohol, often leading to negative effects on their health, relationships, and daily life. To assist individuals grappling with alcohol addiction, various strategies exist. Initially, supervised detoxification may be necessary to ensure a safe cessation of alcohol consumption. Following this, counseling and therapy play a crucial role in addressing the psychological facets of the addiction. Engaging in support groups can also offer a sense of camaraderie and comprehension.

Substance use treatment:

Substance abuse treatment programs can help to address addiction and, if relevant, any co-occurring mental health conditions. Programs include outpatient, inpatient, dual-diagnosis, and partial hospitalization. The addict will receive therapies like cognitive behavioral therapy, or dialectical behavioral therapy, and sometimes complementary therapies like acupuncture and mindfulness-based therapy. By attending skills training and recovery groups you’ll build a strong foundation for your recovery and strengthen your support network, increasing your chances of long-term recovery success.

Co-occurring Disorders:

Dual-diagnosis rehabilitation centers often offer the most suitable approach for addressing concurrent mental health and substance abuse issues. These facilities typically employ a team of medical and behavioral specialists who utilize a variety of interventions and create a conducive healing environment to support your journey toward lasting recovery. Their comprehensive treatment approach typically encompasses evidence-based therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, recovery support meetings, 12-step facilitation, psychoeducation, skills training, and group therapy to help you achieve and maintain long-term wellness.

Levels Of Care

Hospital inpatient/24-hour hospital inpatient:

At specific stages of the recovery journey, having round-the-clock support becomes crucial. 24-hour clinical care provides a secure environment for individuals to heal from drug or alcohol addiction, with the assurance that medical detox and other treatments will be administered by professionals at any time.

Partial Hospitalization Program:

A Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is an intensive rehabilitation option, typically designed for individuals with acute symptoms that are challenging to handle but don't necessitate round-the-clock care. PHPs provide structured therapeutic activities, which can include individual and group sessions, and generally operate 3-5 days a week, from approximately 9 am to 3 pm. While some PHPs are residential, allowing patients to stay overnight, others are non-residential, enabling patients to return home each evening. The duration of a PHP can range from 1 to 6 months, and some programs also offer transportation and meals to participants.

Outpatient:

Outpatient treatment in a rehab center offers structured therapeutic services for individuals seeking recovery without full-time residential admission. Unlike intensive outpatient programs, which demand more frequent and longer sessions, standard outpatient care provides a more flexible approach, allowing participants to maintain daily activities and responsibilities while undergoing treatment.

Treatment Modalities

Couples/family therapy:

Couples Therapy during rehab is a specialized counseling program designed to support couples who are navigating the challenges of addiction recovery together. This form of therapy provides a safe and structured environment where couples can address the impact of substance abuse on their relationship and work towards healing and growth as a team. By addressing both individual and shared issues, couples in rehab can strengthen their bond and increase their chances of sustained recovery, fostering a healthier and happier future together.

Group counseling:

Group Counseling is a therapeutic approach where individuals come together under the guidance of a trained counselor to share experiences, offer support, and gain insights. This collective format promotes mutual understanding and growth, allowing participants to learn from one another's perspectives and challenges.

Cognitive behavioral therapy:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that emphasizes the critical role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It aims to identify and challenge distorted or negative thought patterns and behaviors, teaching individuals to replace them with more constructive and rational beliefs. CBT is evidence-based and has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of psychological disorders, including depression, anxiety, and phobias, among others.

Dialectical behavior therapy:

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evolved version of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) that aims to assist individuals in recognizing and influencing the interplay among their thoughts, emotions, and actions. DBT is particularly beneficial for those grappling with self-harming behaviors, including self-inflicted injuries like cutting, as well as suicidal ideations or tendencies. Clinically, it has shown effectiveness in managing intense emotions and conditions such as Borderline Personality Disorder.

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 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 Therapy is a level of care that offers psychological counseling and therapeutic services to individuals via digital platforms, such as video conferencing, phone calls, or messaging apps. This approach allows clients to connect with qualified therapists remotely, providing increased accessibility, flexibility, and convenience, especially for those who may have mobility issues, live in remote areas, or prefer the comfort of their own environment. By leveraging technology, Telehealth Therapy bridges the gap between patients and mental health professionals, ensuring continuity of care irrespective of physical distances.

Smoking/vaping/tobacco cessation counseling:

Tobacco cessation counseling encompasses discussions with a counselor regarding your tobacco or vape usage and its integration into your daily routine, with the goal of devising a strategy to quit. This service caters to individuals desiring to quit tobacco, offering interventions like behavioral support or counseling in groups or one-on-one settings. The counseling sessions may range from brief encounters (under 5 minutes) to more intensive discussions (exceeding 10 minutes) and may necessitate multiple sessions.
