It's never to late, Break the Addiction

Mental Health Treatment

At Sprout Health New Jersey, our goal is to help you learn to manage your mental disorder.

Quite often, because of stigmas associated with mental illness, there are families that unintentionally block a family member from getting the mental health treatment they need. As a result, the individual facing the illness will not get the proper care and support they need. While treatment for their mental illness can help place them on the road to recovery, the very fact of being diagnosed with mental illness is still an unfortunate taboo.

Understanding the State of Mental Health

To understand mental health issues and their impact on an individual, it is first necessary to have an exact means of diagnosing mental conditions. At Sprout Health New Jersey, we conduct a thorough assessment of a person’s medical history, their drug or alcohol usage, and the conditions in their life that contribute to their addiction. During this phase, we can also uncover and address any co-occurring illnesses. Effective therapy also implies an understanding of how the mind works, and how a person’s thoughts influence their behavior.

We can properly diagnose mental disorders because we utilize only the best practices and equipment. Our clinical technicians are fully certified to offer the best services and treatments possible.

We offer the following treatment programs for mental health wellness:

  • Depression Treatment – The types of depression include major, minor, persistent depressive disorder, psychotic depression, seasonal affective disorder, and postpartum depression. Each type has its own symptoms and treatment options.
  • Bipolar Disorder Treatment – Individuals suffering from bipolar disorders can experience periods of extreme joy that are followed by periods of intense depression and sadness. It is these extreme ups and downs that translate into two opposites of the same conditional continuum.
  • Panic Disorder Treatment – Those suffering from panic attacks experience an overpowering fear that can suddenly occur. The attacks can last for several minutes or much longer. The sufferer fears a complete loss of control over a disaster that may only be a result of their imagination. Even when the fear has subsided, they are continually concerned and fearful, of the next panic attack.
  • Anxiety Disorder Treatment – Everyone suffers from anxiety to a certain extent. For some, the line is crossed when their anxieties spin out of control. At least 18 percent of the nation’s population suffers from an anxiety disorder at its heightened stage. The different kinds of anxiety disorders include social disorder, panic disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder.
  • PTSD Treatment – Is largely associated with soldiers that serve in a combat environment. They experience constant fear, stress, and anxiety even when there are no dangers present. Flashbacks of a particular trauma are repeatedly experienced. There may be close to 8 million adults in the nation who suffer from PTSD.
  • Schizophrenia – Those suffering from schizophrenia experience a breakdown between thought, behavior, and emotion. The result is a faulty perception that influences their thoughts, feelings, and actions in an inappropriate way. There is great mental fragmentation along with fantasies and delusions.

Mental Health Treatment Methods

People diagnosed with mental health issues may receive treatment through a number of effective methods, which may include one of the following.

  • Psychotherapy – Provided and administered by trained clinical professionals, the treatment helps a person explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in ways that will improve their well-being. Paired with medication, many individuals are able to recover from their illness and go on to lead productive and normal lives.
  • Medication – While medication may not treat mental disorders outright, it can help alleviate symptoms. Paired with psychotherapy, patients can receive an effective solution.
  • Case Management – Case managers work closely with individuals to make sure that treatment strategies are well planned and effective. A number of treatment strategies may be used to help an individual recover.
  • Hospitalization – In some cases, hospitalization may be necessary for proper diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring. The patient can be closely monitored and treatments adjusted as needed to help facilitate a successful recovery.
  • Support Groups – Support groups can work wonders for patients undergoing mental health treatment. Within the group, patients can listen, share, and learn from others with similar experiences. Patients realize there are others who can relate to them.
  • Self-Help – Every therapy has to employ some type of self-help element. A patient has to be willing to put forth the effort to help their own self before any treatment can work long-term. They will learn strategies that promote their own wellness and recovery. They will also learn about triggers (elements that can cause relapse) and other warning signs. The goal is long-term recovery results.
  • Peer Support – Patients will usually be exposed to peer support within support groups. Individuals who suffer from similar experiences can do a world of good by sharing and supporting their own life story.

Additional Causes of Mental Disorders

There is always a possibility that a mental disorder can be linked to an imbalance of certain brain chemicals called neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters help the brain’s nerve cells communicate with each other. All it takes is a chemical imbalance or the brain to not function properly in order for messages to get blocked or scrambled.

Genetic Factors

It is not uncommon for mental illness to run in families. People with a family history of mental illness may be more susceptible to developing mental illness. Susceptibility can be passed along through family genes. Stress, traumatic events, and mental abuse can trigger the illness.

Infections

There are certain infections that can be linked to brain disorders and the development of mental illness.

Prenatal Damage

There is evidence to suggest trauma in early prenatal brain development, such as a loss of oxygen, may play a role in some brain disorder cases.

Other Factors

Poor nutrition, which can be brought on by poor dieting habits can be a major contributor. Substance abusers often go without eating for days, and can lose their appetite altogether. This is one of the main reasons that nutrition awareness is such an important element for therapy and patient rehab. Nutrients are immediately placed back in the body to restore its chemical balance.

Generally, treatments for mental health disorders are categorized as psychotherapeutic, or somatic. Somatic treatments can include drugs and other methods used to stimulate the brain. Psychotherapy treatments may utilize group therapy and behavioral therapy techniques to help make the patient aware of their thought and emotional patterns.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Defined

The purpose of CBT is to teach people new skills on how to solve problems more effectively. It teaches them to put their dysfunctional behaviors, emotions, and thought process through a systematic approach for positive conclusions. As such, the therapy is effective at treating personality, mood, eating, anxiety, and substance abuse disorders. If a person’s thinking habits can be changed, a different behavioral outcome is sure to follow.

Clinicians design treatment protocols that are technique-driven and time-limited. The practices can be used just as effectively in groups or one-on-one. The focus helps an individual to solve problems in the “here and now.” Yesterday’s challenges are a thing of the past. Focus for healing is in the present and geared toward the future.

If you or a loved one is experiencing some type of mental disorder, the best solution is to seek treatment with clinical professionals who understand the symptoms and causes, and who can provide effective treatment solutions.
