Bridges to Recovery: The Connection Between Psychiatric Rehabilitation and Recovery

Bridges to Recovery has the esteemed reputation of being one of the world’s leading mental health rehab centers available to individuals dealing with all types of psychiatric issues.  We pride ourselves on offering the comprehensive, compassionate care and intensive treatment that will truly help you achieve your goals, no matter how far away they may seem today.

If you are feeling lost, alienated, or hopeless, you are not alone. Our kind and professional staff understands exactly what you are going through. Although millions of people have experienced some type of mental health disorder in their lifetime, each person’s experience is completely unique. It is our goal to get to the root of your disorder to discover the intricate details of what makes your situation special and individually your own. At a fundamental level, we believe that to treat a disorder one must examine the entire person from all angles, not just from a medical or psychiatric perspective.

Psychiatric rehabilitation is the key to unlocking your true happiness as well as one of the most effective ways of developing the skills and coping mechanisms needed to transform into the absolute best version of yourself. Bridges to Recovery believes in metamorphosis on a personal, professional, and spiritual level, and we are dedicated to teaching you the ways to reclaim your life.

When searching for the best psychiatric rehabilitation service for your unique situation, what criteria should you be considering? Some of the answers to this significant question depend on you as an individual and what makes you feel safe and relaxed. However, there are certain universal standards any quality facility should meet:

  • A facility that is certified and licensed by the Department of Mental Health and Department of Social Services (Note: These agencies cover California rehab facilities; if you are considering a rehab in another state, there may be different agencies whose certification and licensing you should look for.)
  • Access to a diverse and accomplished team of medical and mental health experts
  • Program coordinators that pride themselves on offering thoughtful, personalized, and research-based treatments
  • The ability to feel safe, comfortable, and welcomed without compromising your personal beliefs or preferences

If a psychiatric rehabilitation center does not meet the criteria above, which we believe should be considered the bare minimum, we strongly encourage you to look elsewhere, even if you don’t find us to be the best fit for any reason. We pride ourselves on providing world-class services to our clients, and will work diligently with you to help you fully understand the issues that may be causing you emotional distress and pain.

Compassionate Care and Treatment Specialties

Bridges to Recovery has the utmost confidence in your ability to recognize and overcome your psychiatric concerns. But why should you consider staying with us while you work on transforming your life? Among a wide variety of reasons, one is that we provide a safe, nurturing and comforting alternative to the cold, institutional and sterile environment of so many rehabilitation centers or psychiatric hospitals.

The decision to pursue psychiatric rehabilitation services is one of the most significant decisions a person will ever have to make. The facility you choose can make all the difference in the positive changes you experience. The right rehabilitation center offers not just clinical expertise, but also individualized, empathetic care that guides clients through treatment in an empowering way that results in change that will last after treatment ends. In the end, it is all about care and the experience. One of the most important factors in determining if a treatment center is right for you is what type of treatment specialties they offer.

Here at Bridges to Recovery, we focus on a variety of psychotherapies, innovative holistic treatments, and creative rehabilitations for a diverse array of psychiatric disorders. Our psychiatric rehabilitation center prides itself on offering quality treatments for the following categories of disorders, as well as PTSD and other trauma disorders:

Mood Disorders: A type of psychological disorder that affects an individual’s day-to-day life. We all experience a bad mood occasionally; however, a mood disorder is something entirely different. Although an individual can lead a relatively productive life with a mood disorder, they should still seek the best treatment available to get the most joy out of their life possible. Some common mood disorders include: Major depression, bipolar disorder, dysthymia, and complicated bereavement.

Anxiety Disorders: This type of disorder can manifest itself in many different ways. In general, an anxiety disorder can be described as a mental health condition that is characterized by an overwhelming sense of worry, dread, or fear that interferes with every aspect of an individual’s life. It is recommended that people who begin to experience negative consequences caused by their anxiety disorder should seek treatment to learn how to cope with their anxiety. Some common anxiety disorders include: Generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: Dealing with trauma is one of the most difficult experiences an individual may have to endure. Often, it can be extremely distressing and greatly disturb one’s life.  To work through the traumatic experience and the stress that accompanies it, an individual should seek treatment to avoid further emotional and physical suffering.

Personality Disorders: There are many types of personality disorders that can develop. In general, personality disorders can be thought of as a group of psychiatric disorders that involve deeply rooted patterns of thoughts and behaviors that negatively affect the relationships an individual has with the world around them. Although you may never permanently erase the personality traits you have developed over your lifetime, it is important to seek treatment to learn how to deal with your habits in a healthy way. Some common personality disorders include: Borderline personality disorder, dependent personality disorder, and narcissistic personality disorder.

Impulse Control Disorders: It is important to be well-informed of the causes and effects of impulse control disorders. An impulse control disorder is a branch of psychiatric disorders that result in an individual not being able to resist a temptation or impulse that may cause damage to themselves or others. Impulse control disorders are often co-morbid with substance use disorders. Some common impulse control disorders include: Gambling, skin picking, uncontrolled shopping, intermittent explosive disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, trichotillomania, and kleptomania.

Co-Occurring Eating Disorders: Eating disorders can be devastating to both the body and mind. These disorders often occur alongside, or as the result of, a mental health disorder such as depression or anxiety. Intensive residential treatment is often an essential component of overcoming the effects of an eating disorder on every aspect of your life. Some common eating disorders include: Anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorder, purging disorder, and night eating syndrome.

Although these areas of treatment are among the most common treatment areas in which we specialize, we also offer world-class treatments for other serious disorders, including:

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Failure to Launch
  • Phases of Life Issues
  • Sexual Identity Issues
  • Conversion Disorder
  • Insomnia and sleep disorders
  • Sexual Health Disorders
