A mental health disorder is a condition that affects an individual’s emotions, thoughts, and behavior. While some mental health concerns can be treated on an outpatient basis, this simply does not work for some people. If you have a friend or family member whose life has become unmanageable, finding a safe, professional, comfortable treatment center can mark a turning point in the life of your loved one. We are only a phone call away. If someone you love is suffering from the effects of chemical dependence and mental health issues, call our treatment team today at 561.631.9478.
Treating Mental Health Issues Starts at Archstone
Struggling with a mental health issue often causes people to have difficulty functioning socially, at work, and with family. These issues may develop gradually or without warning. Mental health disorders are extremely common; at least one out of every five Americans has some form of mental health problem. If you feel like mental illness is stopping you from living your best life, there is no reason to suffer. Our small staff at Archstone truly cares about our patients; your mental health recovery is our mission.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is an established, evidence-based style of therapy that operates on the concept that negative and positive thoughts and behaviors are learned and reinforced throughout our lives. To change their actions, a participant first needs to modify the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that contribute to substance use. One example of a thought that may encourage a person to use illicit substances is, “I’m a terrible person; I don’t deserve to be sober.” At Archstone Behavioral Health, we help modify these damaging thoughts and beliefs. Through this process, the individual can accomplish the changes needed to sustain recovery.
Our therapists at Archstone demonstrate the highest levels of professional, compassionate care. They always model respectful interaction and provide positive reinforcement for each patient. We focus on improving emotional development and resolving the trauma that has historically lead to poor decision-making, unhealthy attachments, impulsivity, aggression, and unhealthy coping mechanisms. By resolving these issues, the patient can begin to improve their judgment.
Interpersonal Process Groups
Interpersonal process groups at Archstone Behavioral Health are group counseling teams that attempt to promote recovery through group work involving communication and social skills. The group leader will assess how each member interacts and functions within the group. During interpersonal group therapy, the content covered in each group session is secondary to the social dynamics of the group. We use interpersonal process groups in the following programs at Archstone:
Supportive Addiction Treatment
Overwhelming feelings of shame and guilt can dissuade individuals from seeking help for addiction, even when their lives depend on it. For this reason, it is essential to work with addiction professionals who know how to encourage the patient to be accountable without fault-finding or judgment. The old break-them-down-to-build-them-up approach simply will not work because many addicts already feel broken when they reach treatment. Instead, relationships are such an essential motivator for Archstone Behavioral Health patients in treatment. We cannot overstate the importance of feeling a sense of belonging.
We Offer Many Types of Therapy to Treat Addiction
At Archstone, we offer a variety of addiction treatment therapy programs. Some of which include:
Archstone Behavioral Health offers a range of care options to help people heal and move on. We also offer a supportive aftercare community to help people stay active and involved in our close-knit recovery community.
