Your Personal Journey to Treatment

Everyone faces challenges in their life and typically muddle their way through it. This approach – also known as the pull-yourself-up-by-your-bootstraps method favored by many rough-and-tough folks – may help ease a number of developmental transitions, inconveniences and unexpected turns in life. However, there are many important life situations where this approach simply does not provide a healthy solution.

Thoughts of depression and anxiety can easily become overwhelming. People often turn to numbing, unhealthy behaviors to achieve a moment of peace. Unfortunately, continued unhealthy behaviors can compound the problem and lead to dangerous results. Many people find themselves in serious trouble before they realize there is an issue. By this time, the behaviors have often taken over and the person feels powerless to control them. Mental health disorders and addiction does not discriminate.

At some point, the most important decision becomes how to treat yourself or a loved one. There a different types of treatment and different mediums to receive that treatment. Some of the options include outpatient, hospitals, or residential treatment.

Determining what type of treatment fits your personal needs is a critical key to moving towards a healthy life. It can be daunting and overwhelming task. You should be commended for making it this far. It shows you are open and willing to look for a solution. The details of each type of program are readily available on the internet. Do research and take the time to make the best decision for you. Below find a brief description of the different types of treatment.

Outpatient treatment is what most people think of when they think of therapy. Going to see a “shrink”, therapist, counselor, psychologist – they’re all essentially the same in that they provide a safe space to discuss and examine your experiences, feelings and offer direction to help you more appropriately deal with them.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is for people who don’t quite need residential treatment, but require more intensive care than an outpatient treatment provider can offer. An IOP can employ a variety of therapy forms, including group and individual therapy, as well as specialized therapies, such as art or equine therapy and yoga or meditation. An IOP is typically anywhere from two to five days a week.

Residential Treatment is the most intensive treatment available. You take residence in a comfortable and often luxurious home. You have a clinical team whose only goal is to help you get healthy. Residential treatment treats a variety of disorders, addictions and conditions. Residential treatment centers often specialize in a type of treatment such as Mental Health, Alcohol, Sexual Addiction, etc.

In a residential treatment center, you take a break from the normal routine of your life and physically move to safe setting that is calm and focused on healing for the duration of your stay. Therapeutic staff members bring a great deal of experience and compassion to their work, understanding how difficult it can be to be separated from family and friends while being challenged to face the very things you’ve been desperately trying to escape. Days are structured and flow from group therapy sessions to quiet reflection times to expertly cooked meals to professionally led yoga classes. By removing yourself from your normal life, you get a different – and often healthier – perspective. Which provides you with the tools for long-term healing, in order to return you to a healthier and more productive life.
