Treating the Whole Person

While the types and causes of mental health conditions vary widely, it’s agreed that these disorders can all negatively impact our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. If left untreated, depression, trauma, anxiety, bipolar, and PTSD can interfere with everyday life. Fortunately, due to greater social awareness and advances in our understanding of how the human mind works, we are better able to identify and effectively treat these conditions. 

At Serenity View, we treat every individual with the dignity and respect they deserve, focusing on the whole person instead of a singular condition. Each patient receives a psychological assessment to ensure that they receive the appropriate treatment for their individual conditions. We are also able to treat any co-occurring substance use disorders in the same setting. We have a clinical team that is also able to prescribe assistive medications, when needed, based on the symptoms and severity of each patient.

“When people are looking for treatment, when families are looking for treatment, they’re trying to find a place that they can trust, a place where their loved one will be safe. That may be here – I hope it is – because I know what’s going to happen when they walk in the door here. You’re going to have barriers of finances, you’re going to have barriers of family, of work. All those things will start melting away when you start walking toward the solution. I want to be the place that is worthy of that walk.”

Co-occurring Disorders

When an individual presents with both a substance use disorder and at least one mental health condition, these are called co-occurring disorders or a dual diagnosis. While the terms may not be household words yet, an estimated 8.5 million adults are dealing with a substance use disorder and at least one mental health condition. Co-occurring disorders treatment focuses not just on addiction but on any underlying mental health conditions, which often go undiagnosed. Because mental health and substance use disorders can perpetuate one another, it is critical to treat them simultaneously for the best chance at long-term, sustainable recovery.

The Brain Center at Serenity View

Brain Center

At our innovative Brain Center, patients use state-of-the-art neurobehavioral equipment to achieve a wide range of benefits including better brain regulation and diminished anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Everything from neurofeedback and cranio-electro stimulation (CES) to Heart-Rate Variability devices, Hemoencephalographic (HEG) biofeedback, weighted blankets, and Chi machines are available to improve sleep, mental sharpness, memory, and cognitive functioning. When patients gain a greater self-awareness of internal reactions within their bodies, then digestive problems, mood disorders, stomach pain, and other aches and pains may also decrease.

Mood disorders like depression and bipolar disorder are the third most common cause of hospitalization in the US for adults under the age of 44.

Anxiety

Anxiety disorders — whether phobias, panic disorder, or generalized anxiety disorder — can leave you so consumed by fear and drained of energy that you are unable to manage your usual daily activities and maintain personal relationships. Treatment allows you to effectively manage symptoms and address underlying causes.

Bipolar

If you suffer from bipolar disorder, you may find yourself alternating between episodes of depression and mania. But because a lesser range of highs and lows is normal in all healthy adults, bipolar disorder can be hard to diagnose. If untreated, this psychological mood disorder can complicate your sobriety efforts.

Depression

This often-misunderstood mental health condition is more than just feeling sad. It’s marked by a persistent empty, helpless, hopeless feeling that can be debilitating. Proper treatment equips you to deal with the insomnia, fatigue, anxiety, and isolation depression brings and can help you discover a newfound hope. 

PTSD & Trauma

You don’t need to see combat to experience trauma or develop Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Roughly half of all US adults will experience at least one traumatic event in their lives. Exposure to these events may be common, but if you experience persistent frightening thoughts, flashbacks, sleep problems, or feel numb, you may need help.
