About Mental Health Services at Essential Recovery
Mental illness is a serious problem for many people who are not even aware that they have a disorder. It affects a multitude of areas in people’s lives, ranging from problems with relationships, employment, education, health and many other areas of one’s day to day life. Essential Recovery assists with behavioral health care for family members and individuals with finding the right mental health facility that deals with their particular affliction. The mental health treatment centers we work with are designed to meet the unique needs of each individual patient.
The treatment centers we are aligned with use evidence-based processes to treat individuals who are suffering from mental illnesses, ranging from: PTSD, depression, eating disorders, bi-polar, anxiety, personality disorders, narcissistic behavior, trauma, dual-diagnosis and many other mental health disorders.
Mental and behavioral health issues often time result from drug and/or alcohol addiction. Our mental health facilities specialize in the treatment of substance abuse and co-occurring disorders as well. These residential treatment centers specialize in mental and behavioral health to address the root cause of these afflictions to help individuals restore their life. Individualized plans for patients include a dual-pronged approach to medication management and psychological care for their mental health issues.
I struggled with bulimia at 14-years old. As I got older, I stopped binge eating and throwing up, but my negative self-image still continued. The negative comments my mother made didn’t help. I only felt beautiful when I was high, and the feeling of confidence and pride was addicting. When I was sober, I felt ashamed, and then I never wanted to be sober, but when I decided I wanted to be sober, I physically couldn’t. I had lost control of my body.
I found Essential Recovery from articles I read online, and the counselors at Essential Recovery treated me with dignity from the first call. They oversaw the entire process, and they got me into a treatment center that was more of a “home” to me than even my own house. Unlike my family, I met others who struggled with similar issues as me and getting help. For the very first time in a long time, I felt understood.
