Effective treatment for substance dependence may include medications for the best possible results. Be Well uses a comprehensive approach to treatment, which may include recovery supportive medications, utilized in conjunction with psychotherapy to treat both substance dependence and any underlying mental health issues.
At Be Well we understand that substance dependence can commonly occur alongside conditions such as depression or mood disorders, anxiety, and other behavioral health diagnoses. Our clinicians are experts in understanding these co-occurring disorders and integrating appropriate treatment along with substance use care.
What works for one person may not be ideal for another. That’s why Be Well takes an individualized approach to every plan of treatment to find the right solution for each individual. Our experts work to develop the appropriate plan of care, from short-term therapies to long-term treatment, all of varying degrees of intensity, depending on the clinical need and the person’s preference. By partnering fully with our patients, our clinical team strives to earn and build trust in every relationship, which is a critical element in successful treatment.
Together, we can help you manage your symptoms over extended periods of time.
Psychotherapy is simply an open and collaborative dialogue. It involves a therapist and a patient working together to address the patient’s personal life stressors and concerns- all in an objective, neutral, and completely nonjudgmental environment.
By identifying barriers that may inhibit a patient’s recovery, psychotherapy helps to successfully implement a plan that will be most effective for each unique individual. Psychotherapy helps patients develop better coping skills and habits to stop substance use and promote a healthier outlook on life.
It’s important to understand the services we may utilize to help our patients recover. Comprehensive treatment options at Be Well often include group and individual psychotherapy, in combination with psychiatric treatment. Group psychotherapy sessions focus on substance use education, relapse control and prevention, stress management, building effective coping skills and fostering positive family and interpersonal interactions, while individual therapy may address the personal underlying causes of substance use. Psychiatric care utilizes medication support as part of the full scope of treatment.
