Behavioral Health Services in Connecticut
Behavioral health treatments are an effective way to help patients suffering from substance abuse disorders. These treatments encourage the patient to see the connection between personal behavior and the way it impacts the body, mind, and spirit. As such, mental health services are only one component of the treatment plan designed for each patient. At Connecticut Addiction Medicine, patients can have a psychiatric services provider working in tandem with a licensed social worker. As a result, the integration of these services can contribute to success at a higher rate than when they are delivered individually. The disease of addiction hurts the whole patient, in mind, body, spirit, personal relationships, family dynamics, and much more. All of these issues must be addressed for a patient to enter recovery.
The CT Addiction Medicine Approach
The founders of Alcoholics Anonymous ignited a movement that educated health care professionals and the general public from the back room of a restaurant in Akron, Ohio. These two men were instrumental in securing the acceptance of a revolutionary new model of addiction, one that allows those suffering from alcoholism and addiction to embrace an integrated approach to treatment, combining behavioral health therapy and skills. Addiction affects every facet of an addict or alcoholic’s life. As a result, the best way to treat the disease of addiction is a whole-person approach. CT Addiction Medicine sets up patients for success and wellness in recovery by using the most current evidence-based modalities available. This method targets behavioral health issues for each individual’s circumstances and inspires long-term changes to behaviors that have had repeated negative consequences during active addiction.
