Treatment At Aurora St Lukes Medical Center - Behavioral Health

Conditions Treated

Mental health treatment:

Mental health treatment provides a safe and structured environment where individuals can receive professional care and support for their mental health challenges. Within the facility, trained therapists, counselors, and medical staff work together to create personalized treatment plans tailored to each person's needs. Patients might participate in a variety of therapies, including individual counseling, group therapy, and possibly medication management. The goal is to equip individuals with the tools and strategies they need to cope with their conditions and lead fulfilling lives.

Alcoholism:

Alcohol addiction is when a person becomes physically and mentally dependent on alcohol, leading to mood swings, impulsive actions, intense cravings, and withdrawal symptoms. Treatment includes supervised detox, therapy, and support groups. It's important to note that rehabilitation doesn't "cure" alcoholism, but it helps individuals better manage their addiction, regain their ability to function in daily life, and improve their overall well-being.

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.

Levels Of Care

Hospital inpatient/24-hour hospital inpatient:

The 24-Hour Hospital Inpatient for Addiction Treatment program offers comprehensive, round-the-clock medical care and support for individuals grappling with substance use disorders and addictions. Situated within a medical hospital environment, this specialized inpatient program is designed to address both the immediate and long-term needs of patients, ensuring their safety, stabilization, and comprehensive recovery.

Partial Hospitalization Program:

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is an intensive, short-term treatment program that provides a structured therapeutic environment for individuals with acute mental health or substance use concerns. Operating during daytime hours, PHP bridges the gap between inpatient hospitalization and traditional outpatient care, allowing participants to return home in the evenings while still receiving a high level of clinical support and therapy during the day. The program typically includes group therapy, individual counseling, medication management, and other therapeutic interventions tailored to the needs of the individual.

Treatment Modalities

Couples/family therapy:

Whether it's a marriage or another committed relationship, intimate partnerships hold immense significance in one's life. Substance addiction profoundly impacts both partners, just as rehabilitation and recovery do. Couples therapy and other relationship-focused treatments play a crucial role in uncovering addiction triggers and fostering healthy habits to sustain sobriety.

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 widely practiced form of psychotherapy that seeks to address dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts through a goal-oriented, systematic process. It encourages individuals to challenge distorted cognitions and change destructive patterns of behavior by promoting self-awareness and effective coping strategies. CBT is often used to treat a range of disorders including anxiety, depression, and stress, making it a versatile and practical therapeutic approach. Through enhancing an individual's capacity to manage life's challenges, CBT contributes to improved mental well-being and overall quality of life.

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 allows individuals to access mental health services remotely via secure video conferencing. This level of care offers qualified therapy from the comfort of one's home, removing geographical barriers and often reducing wait times. Ideal for those with mobility challenges, tight schedules, or those in rural areas, it combines convenience with consistent, high-quality mental health support.

Smoking/vaping/tobacco cessation counseling:

Vaping Cessation Counseling is a specialized form of support designed to help individuals overcome their dependence on electronic cigarettes or vaping products. Through evidence-based strategies, personalized advice, and emotional support, counselors guide individuals towards a nicotine-free life, emphasizing the long-term health benefits of cessation.

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.
