Mental Health Services

Comprehending the cause of most mental health issues or disorders, helps doctors and clinicians individualize treatment for each client, offering a treatment plan addressing mental health, medication, and therapeutic interventions.

Therapeutic methods for mental health disorders can be categorized as either somatic or psychotherapeutic. Somatic treatments include drug therapy and electroconvulsive therapy. Psychotherapeutic treatments include individual, group, or family and marriage and family psychotherapy, behavior therapy techniques (such as relaxation training or exposure therapy); and hypnotherapy. The Cove Center for Recovery is a quality treatment program for major mental health disorders, which includes both drugs and psychotherapy as a preferred treatment method.

The Cove Center For Recovery designed a Mental Health Program with a comprehensive team of doctors and clinicians. At the Cove, psychiatrists are not the only mental health care practitioners trained to treat mental illness. Others include clinical psychologists, social workers, and nurses, all of whom must hold appropriate credentials. Psychiatrists (and psychiatric nurse practitioners in some states) are the only mental health care practitioners licensed to prescribe drugs. Other practitioners practice psychotherapy primarily. The Cove Center for Recovery – Addiction Treatment Center provides also a medical doctor who oversees all practices and visits with clients. The Cove Center for Recovery further supports the treatment of mental health disorders by integrating the therapeutic talents of their Chief Executive Officer Ed Cejka.

Drug Therapy

A number of psychoactive drugs are highly effective and widely used by psychiatrists and other medical doctors. These drugs are often categorized according to the disorder for which they are primarily prescribed. For example, antidepressants are used to treat depression. The Cove’s medical director and ARNP will conduct a full psychiatric history and work with the client to establish to most suitable protocol for an effective treatment program.

Psychotherapy

The Cove Center for Recovery embraces the model of psychotherapy combined with medication management. In recent years, tremendous results have been observed with the use of psychotherapy. Psychotherapy is also referred to as narrative therapy. It works from the premise that the solution for a person’s distress can be helped by the therapist through a trusting relationship and discussions of the problems the client brings to the session. Often, the psychotherapist can help the client identify the source of the problems and consider alternatives for dealing with them. Psychotherapy also recognizes the need for medication and integrates a program of observation and reporting on the medication and it’s impact on the individual. Psychotherapy can include individual, group, marital, and family therapy. It is an accepted approach for many mental health issues including trauma, depression, adhd, ptsd, bereavement, or chronic mental illness and more.
