Ascentria Care Alliance - Mental Health Focus:

Mental Health

Mental Health Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from mental illnesses like bipolar disorder, clinical depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, and more. Mental health professionals at these facilities are trained to understand and treat mental health issues, both in individual and group settings.

What does Ascentria Care Alliance - Mental Health offer?

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient programs are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person’s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

They design and implement a unique plan of service for – and with – each individual. By focusing on each person’s strengths and talents, they support the individual’s quest for self-confidence, independence and a stable, healthy life. They work with the individual, their family and professionals to design and implement an individualized and flexible approach to services, which meets the goals of all. By employing a “whole life” approach, they are able to assist individuals as they build relationships, develop satisfying work, pursue leisure activities and enjoy a rewarding and healthy life. Ascentria Community Integration/Case Management Services help to increase an individual’s access to and engagement with their community including but not limited to financial, transportation, medical and mental health resources. Clients partner with a case manager to develop a plan that specifically addresses his or her unique needs. The case manager will advocate for the individual until the person is able to independently manage their own care and life.

Family Program

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic therapy facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic therapy is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is designed to support individuals for whom traditional talk therapies have not been successful. The program is run in a group setting with participants learning behavior skills necessary to deal with overwhelming emotions and self-harming behaviors. In addition to the interactive “classes,” DBT incorporates homework assignments, encouraging clients to practice these positive behaviors in everyday life. Research has shown that DBT is effective in treating a wide range of conditions including borderline personality disorder, substance abuse or chemical dependence, depression, post-traumatic stress and eating disorders. Participants learn to counteract dichotomous thinking, strengthen a positive sense of self, and improve interpersonal skills to help develop a whole and healthy individual.

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Life Skills

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.
