General Mental Health Track
Provides a safe, secure, educational, and accepting environment for individuals to explore thoughts and feelings, learn various coping strategies, and process experienced events/interactions. Our clinicians assist our clients in processing and learning to cope with a variety of mood disorder symptoms, anxiety disorders, difficult life transitions, grief and loss, and setting new thought and response patterns that enhance healing, self-acceptance and resilience.
The Mental Health track engages an eclectic approach including client-based, behavior based, strengths-focused, and experiential-based methods of treatment. Individuals enrolled in this track can expect to learn skills that will assist them in multiple areas of their lives – some of which include: communication, relaxation, stress management, CBT, relationship dynamics, depression management, self-esteem/self-reliance, and anger management.
Managing trauma issues, attachment issues, and triggers resulting from complex and single trauma events is a great challenge, often not understood. Trauma management strategies and tips are available for us to use to protect ourselves, and improve the quality of our lives. There is little we can or could have done to prevent certain things from happening or to prevent certain outcomes, but how we manage what we are faced with – that becomes our responsibility.
This track is designed to educate clients on managing safety, trauma, and anxiety symptoms, to improve social and self-interactions, balance, presence, and control in their daily lives, as well as to manage perfectionism. Mindfulness, motivational, educational, CBT and DBT approaches are engaged in the treatment of clients in this track.
Helps reduce impulsive behaviors, such as suicidality, self-harm, substance abuse, eating disordered behavior, aggression, isolation, rumination, dissociation, anxiety, depression, and panic attacks. DBT teaches skills to control these behaviors by helping clients build a life worth living through tolerating distress, learning how to bear pain skillfully, regulating emotions, and improving relationships with others.
Patients are provided with homework/handouts that help to establish new/healthy patterns/behaviors and have the opportunity to review them. Additionally, they are helped to maintain a diary card that monitors daily emotions and progress on behaviors that the patient (with staff assistance) has identified as needing to decrease and increase in the recovery process.
Patients learn Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Distress Tolerance, and Middle Path skills in this track. Phone coaching services is available to patients in this track to assist them with using the skills that they learn in groups outside of program.
Substance Abuse/Dual Diagnosis Track
Simultaneously address challenges derived from chemical dependence and those associated with mental health disorders. Many who struggle with addictions and mental health concerns feel powerless and trapped, with little hope of regaining control. However, our clients possess reservoirs of strength and resilience that they often do not know exist.
We use proven, evidence-based treatment methods to break the chains of addiction, empower individuals to reclaim their life and help them to remain substance free.
Our integrated treatment approaches assist adults in gaining social support, learning new coping skills, developing healthy relationships, and discovering the freedom of living without substances. In order to best ensure a healthy, productive, therapeutic environment, our facilities possess an onsite lab that drug screens clients a minimum of once per week.
Elevating the likelihood for our clients’ continued health and sustained recovery is our highest priority. As such, we encourage the use of mutual support group programs throughout treatment.
Patients are educated on the characteristics and locations of various support systems, such as 12 Step Model, SMART Recovery, and Double Trouble in Recovery.
Our programs consist of a wide range of relapse prevention groups, education groups, and social support groups. Treatment is designed to be a directive and non-confrontational approach that focuses on current issues and behavior change. With a compassionate, dedicated, and caring staff, clients find that despite initial feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, they are empowered in creating a life worth living one meaningful day at a time.
Eating Disorders Track (Healthy Eating and Living) HEAL
Eating disorders are complicated medical illnesses that can seriously harm your emotional, spiritual, and physical health. Beyond being obsessed with food and body image, many individuals with this affliction also suffer from depression, anxiety, or other overwhelming issues. This track will help you break free from the debilitating rules and obsessions of disordered eating and thinking so that you can have a more peaceful relationship with food, your body, and your life.
The HEAL Program at GenPsych is a highly effective, research-based program specifically designed to help adolescents (13+) and adults suffering from Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, Eating Disorders NOS (Not Otherwise Specified), and related disorders.
Our experienced, multidisciplinary team of eating disorder specialists–including therapists, dietitians, nurses and physicians–work closely with you to interrupt destructive behaviors, face your fears, and put you on a path to recovery. Through individual and group treatment, you will decrease eating disorder symptoms, learn balanced eating, and develop healthy ways to cope.
Active and past military duty brings unique challenges, sacrifices, and stresses to service members and their families. It is not uncommon to feel anxiety, depression, or other negative emotions related to your deployment, service, or combat–and sometimes these feelings can be hard to manage.
Our Military track uses proven methods to help you deal with these unique experiences in a discrete, safe setting without fear of being judged. We offer specialized programming that focuses on the common distresses that many of our military are faced with, such as insomnia, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anger, and feelings of isolation.
Our groups offer a safe place where our service members join together, get support and understanding, and begin to heal through the compassion offered by the staff and one another.
We respect your service to our country and welcome the opportunity to serve you.
