Mental Health Treatment Programs
Comprehensive Mental Health Treatment Programs
At Embark Recovery, we understand that mental health is just as important as physical health. That's why we provide comprehensive, individualized treatment to help you overcome mental health challenges and achieve lasting recovery.
Our team of experienced professionals includes licensed therapists, double board-certified psychiatrists, and addiction specialists who are dedicated to providing the highest quality care. We offer a range of evidence-based therapies, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), EMDR Therapy, and trauma-focused therapy, among others.
Some of the mental health conditions we treat include anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and more. We also specialize in addiction treatment, including substance abuse and behavioral addictions.
If you have been through a distressing or traumatic event or series of events and are now experiencing negative impacts in your daily life, it's essential to seek professional help. Trauma can result from a wide range of events and experiences, including situations where you may have felt helpless, betrayed, confused, experienced pain, lost control, or suffered abuse of power.
At our centers, we offer trauma treatment services designed to provide healing, insight, and guidance to help individuals who have suffered acute, chronic, complex, or secondary trauma. Trauma symptoms can manifest themselves in many ways, such as anxiety, depression, irritability, insomnia, flashbacks, and avoidance behaviors.
Some of the experiences that can lead to trauma-related symptoms include but are not limited to:
- Physical, sexual, or emotional abuse
- Childhood abandonment or neglect
- Loved one or intimate partner violence (Domestic Violence)
- Severe accidents, and natural disasters
- Additionally, witnessing a traumatic event can also result in secondhand trauma
- Chronic distress in the home or community
- Medical conditions and procedures
- Spiritual and religious abuse can also lead to trauma
Our trauma treatment services aim to help individuals process their traumatic experiences, develop coping mechanisms to manage symptoms, and work towards healing and recovery. We use evidence-based approaches such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, EMDR therapy, and mindfulness techniques to help individuals regain control of their lives and move forward from their traumatic experiences.
The symptoms that follow these types of experiences can be painful and disruptive. People who experience trauma may have nightmares, intrusive thoughts and memories, flashbacks, and other physical and emotional symptoms. Traumatic events can lead to changes in the brain and nervous system. Due to the brain’s resilience and effective modalities for treating trauma-related disorders, the brain can be rewired to heal those wounds.
Dissociation refers to a mental process where individuals disconnect from their thoughts, feelings, memories, or sense of identity. Traumatic experiences can trigger dissociation in individuals. In severe cases, dissociation may manifest as dissociative identity disorder, characterized by two or more distinct personality states.
The manifestation of dissociation can vary significantly, but it serves as a critical psychological "escape" from the emotional and physical distress caused by traumatic experiences or chronic trauma. Stabilizing dissociative symptoms is a crucial aspect of treating trauma. By doing so, individuals can regain awareness and integration of their mind and body, reducing the need to detach from experiences and promoting a healthier sense of self.
Impact on Families and Couples
Families and couples operate within a unique system that only its members can fully comprehend. However, this system may experience dysfunction and become overwhelming, leading to relationship challenges. Additionally, families and couples may also struggle to cope with a mental health disorder affecting one or more of its members.
Therapy can assist families and couples in navigating these challenges and supporting positive changes within the system. Therapy can help address issues such as secrecy, betrayal, conflict, fear, and emotional chaos that may disrupt the system. By addressing these issues, therapy can facilitate healthier relationships within families and couples, leading to more positive outcomes for all members involved.
Mental health disorders are conditions that affect a person's mood, behavior, thinking, and emotions, and can have a lasting impact on their daily lives. They can range from occasional to chronic and may affect a person's relationships and their ability to function.
Mood disorders, such as depression and bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and psychotic disorders, are all types of mental health disorders. Anxiety disorders, including phobias and panic disorders, also fall under this category.
Personality and Dissociative Disorders
Personality disorders are mental health conditions characterized by patterns of unhealthy thoughts, behaviors, and functioning. These disorders can be long-lasting and impact a person's ability to connect with others and control their actions. Borderline personality disorder, dependent personality disorder, and antisocial personality disorder, among others, are examples of personality disorders.
Dissociative disorders are characterized by problems with memory, identity, emotion, perception, behavior, and sense of self. Dissociative symptoms may include memory loss, detachment from the body, or amnesia. These disorders are often associated with trauma.
Dissociative disorders can manifest as dissociative amnesia, dissociative identity disorder, or depersonalization/derealization disorder. Treatment for both personality and dissociative disorders can include psychotherapy, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and group therapy, in an inpatient or outpatient setting. The type of therapy used will depend on the severity and nature of the disorder.
