Psychiatric Services for Mental Disorders
A psychiatric disorder consists of symptoms involving mood, thoughts, and behavior. The human brain is able to express mood regulation, anxiety, thought processes, and behavior—its function is quite complicated. Therefore, when a person develops a problem within an area of the brain, a psychiatrist is needed to correctly diagnose and treat the problem, as they specialize in brain function and medicine.
Oftentimes, psychiatric disorders co-occur with substance abuse issues; therefore, unless both are treated simultaneously, neither will be fully overcome. Sometimes, people are unaware of their co-occurring disorder, which can cause them to abuse substances as self-medication.
Psychiatric Services at Wellington Retreat
Wellington Retreat offers many programs that help people who suffer from psychiatric disorders regain control of their lives. If a substance abuse disorder is present as well, both the mental and substance use disorder will be treated at the same time. Depending upon the disorder present, Dr. Moran or Dr. Kantrowitz will prescribe the patient medicine to help lessen the disorder’s effects so that therapy can be begun and, overall, more successful. Here at Wellington Retreat, therapies offered are cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational enhancement therapy, and 12-step facilitation, as well as individual and group therapy.
