Lake County Health Department and Community Health Center provides treatment, training and support services to persons experiencing problems related to emotional and mental illness. Lake County Health Department and Community Health Center uses various forms of evidence-based treatment in an outpatient setting.

Lake County Health Department and Community Health Center 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.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

The central task of the Dual Diagnosis Group is to help clients learn more about the interaction between addiction and mental illness, and to help them increase stability in adult functioning through the establishment of sustained sobriety and continued recovery from mental illness. You must be receiving services from at least one of our Behavioral Service programs to be in this group.

Rehab Services:

Psychotropic Medication

Psychotropic medications (aka psychodynamic medication) are any medicines used specifically to affect and/or alter a patient’s mind, emotions, and behaviors. Such psychiatric medicines are often used to change chemical levels in the brain that impact a person’s mood and behavior. These medications include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anti-ADHD drugs, and anti-anxiety medications.

What does Lake County Health Department and Community Health Center offer?

Outpatient (OP)

The purpose of this program is to prevent and treat chronic/severe emotional and psychiatric disorders. Services in this program include diagnostic evaluation, psychiatric assessment, and crisis intervention to adults who have a history of chronic mental illness. Clients who receive their psychiatric medication services may also qualify for individual and/or group psychotherapy, depending on the type of funding the client has.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person’s specific background and needs. Lake County's staff provides support, advocacy to promote self-sufficiency and linkage with appropriate community services such as Social Security, Department of Human Services and subsidized housing.

12-Step

12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Family Program

Family involvement with treatment, when clinically helpful to a client's progress, is encouraged. Case managers are available to assist families in obtaining the resources necessary to restore balance. They strive to help youth and their families develop positive coping techniques, communication skills and the means to manage mental health issues, while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Aftercare Support

Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn’t spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community  programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).

Therapies Offered:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

In the DBT Group patients must be involved in individual therapy at the clinic to be in this group. The group uses instructional lecture, group discussion, behavioral rehearsal with modeling and role-play, written handouts, and homework assignments to help you decrease unmanageable issues in your life. Mindfulness skills are central to this group.

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

The Trauma Treatment Program provides services to Lake County residents, ages 2 through 18, who have experienced trauma. Trauma Focused—Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an evidenced-based treatment proven effective in working with children and adolescents who have experienced trauma. TF-CBT teaches us how to cope with unhelpful or inaccurate thoughts, confusing and overwhelming feelings, and unhealthy or risky behaviors that the experience of trauma many times causes. Topics include: Education about Trauma, Relaxation, How to Identify and Express Emotions.

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.
