Mental Health Treatment

mental health treatment

There are a wide range of mental health treatment issues that can arise in an individual. All of these need careful attention and specified treatment in order to be overcome.

What types of mental health issues are there?

There are many manifestations that poor mental health can show itself as. These include, but are not restricted to:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Bipolar disorders
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • Personality disorders
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Psychosis
  • Schizophrenia

Each condition is extremely different from the others and this is reflective in each individual’s case. Proper treatment must be personalised to the individual – something that we offer.

How many people suffer from mental illness?

mental healthCurrently 13.4% of the US population is being treated for some form of mental health condition. However, roughly 18.2% suffer from some form of mental illness. This means that around 5% of the USA population is suffering in silence. This could be for a number of reasons. Some of the most common are:

  • They think it isn’t effective
  • They’re worried about the connotations
  • They think people will find out

All of these are untrue. Mental health problems are a common and treatable condition which with the right approach can completely cure people. This is obviously dependent on the severity of the illness.

What types of treatment are there?

Here at Faith Drug Rehab, we offer both inpatient and outpatient treatments alongside medication, but what’s the difference?

Inpatient treatments must last for at least 28 days and involve staying in our secure facility for daily monitoring and help. This will be a better option for those who need more drastic help or who have relapsed after outpatient treatment. Inpatient treatment allows for proper care during withdrawal from drugs or self-harm. It’s used to take patients out of and away from any situations which could promote a worsening of the condition. The environment is controlled in such a way to help recovery and comfort. This may sound frightening for anybody who doesn’t want to be taken away from their home life. However, it’s important to note that it is more likely to stop relapse and give you a better quality of life when you do return. This is typically what is meant when you see on the news that a celebrity has gone into rehab.

Sometimes outpatient treatment doesn’t completely work or isn’t right for the individual. If you’ve already tried outpatient treatment, then this way of helping will be a much better option.

Outpatient treatment programs are structured differently to inpatient treatment and use a much less intensive process of care. Though, both forms of treatment are similar, outpatient treatments allow for a greater sense of freedom. They are more effective for individuals who have a less severe condition. With outpatient treatments you can still maintain a work, family, educational and social life as it will only take up a certain amount of hours per day. This also allows for privacy and anonymity with the ability to cover up where you’ve been and structure your life around rehab.

However, this does mean that patients are not supplied with an isolated environment away from influencing factors. This is the reason why relapse is generally higher in patients who follow outpatient treatments. Returning to an environment where the mental illness originated from can be difficult for some people which slows down or prevents mental health treatment. We try our hardest with each individual in order to make sure that relapse doesn’t happen.

All of our inpatient and outpatient mental health treatments are designed to get you back into full recovery. Our passion is helping you get to a constant, stable state of mind in order to live the life that you want to lead. Contact us now to speak with one of our specialists.
