We understand that our clients have different experiences this is also true when it comes to their symptoms. Even those with a similar diagnosis are not the same. For this reason, we begin our services by letting clients undergo an assessment. This way, we can diagnose their condition and determine what types of treatment can work for their situation. Since we believe that our clients are our partners in managing their condition and thus we give them the chance to share what they think we should know about their experiences and be involved in their treatment process from start to finish.

We offer treatment and address the following:

Suboxone Treatment
Suboxone Treatment is often provided for individuals that are trying to recover from substance abuse. It helps them wean off the substance they are taking by controlling withdrawal symptoms that usually induce a strong urge for the individual to retake it. Suboxone may also be prescribed to individuals dealing with anxiety disorder or depression.
Genetic Testing
Genetic testing is done by taking cell swabs that are then sent for laboratory analysis. The results can help determine unique biomarkers that are associated with specific behavioral health disorders and may also be used in determining how well one can process medications that may help in managing symptoms.
Addiction
We offer clients various treatment options to address the psychosocial causes and effects of addiction and may prescribe medications to help manage urges and withdrawal symptoms. We also promote the strengthening of clients’ support system since their loved ones’ involvement is also essential in overcoming addiction.
Substance/Alcohol Abuse
The process of overcoming substance abuse involving drugs and alcohol is different for each individual. It also takes great commitment as one may experience the urge to revert to their habits when faced with external and internal pressures. Thus, we schedule regular sessions with our clients so we can check on their progress and help them find healthier coping skills.
Anger Management
Anger management’s goal is to help you learn strategies that will disrupt your anger and find healthier ways of dealing with them. Addressing this condition may involve therapy in which one works with a professional to understand the angry feelings and address the underlying issues that may have caused them. An individual with anger issues will also be provided with techniques to manage anger.
Mood Disorders
Mood disorders affect a person’s emotions, moods, way of thinking, and energy levels. The symptoms experienced by individuals with this condition differ depending on their condition. One may have issues with feelings of isolation, loneliness, and lack of interest in activities previously enjoyed or fluctuating energies that may range from very high to very low and affect impulsivity and even aggression.

Here are more common types of mood disorders:

  • Major depressive disorder (MDD)
  • Bipolar I Disorder
  • Bipolar II Disorder
  • Cyclothymic disorder
Dual Diagnosis
Dual diagnosis is when an individual has a mental health disorder and a comorbid substance use disorder. Determining double disorder, if there is any, is essential since one disorder can affect the way the other is treated, especially if the treatment involves medication. A professional should take into consideration the medication’s effects and how it can affect the other. Individuals with dual diagnoses may also undergo therapy to address underlying psychosocial issues.
Eating Disorders
Eating disorders are conditions that cause unhealthy eating habits. Among its most common causes is an obsession with body shape, body weight, or the type of food. This condition may cause serious health problems if left untreated. Other common symptoms, depending on the individual’s condition, are severe restriction of food, food binges, and purging behaviors.
Medication Management
It’s important for us to make sure that our clients are taking the appropriate medications to address their conditions. For this reason, before we prescribe a drug, we thoroughly check clients’ health and medication history so we can ensure our prescription does not affect the effects of other drugs or exacerbate other health conditions. We also offer medication education and implement regular check-ups so we can make sure that clients are adhering to their medications.
Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD)
OCD is a condition characterized by repeated obsessions that lead to compulsions. Obsessions on keeping everything clean and organized are among the most commonly known manifestations of OCD to the public. However, OCD is not just about cleanliness and organization. It is a condition that triggers unwanted, intrusive thoughts, images, or urges that trigger intensely distressing feelings. Therapy and medication are usually prescribed for individuals with this condition.
Pregnancy (Prenatal/Postpartum)
Pregnant individuals and new mothers, especially those dealing with behavioral health issues, may find it hard to adjust to the physical and emotional changes brought on by pregnancy and childbirth. We are here to support individuals that go through these challenges so they can express their thoughts and feelings without fear of being judged, leaving an open space for communication and understanding.
Sleep or Insomnia
Individuals that may have issues with going to sleep may be experiencing underlying behavioral or behavioral issues. As health experts, we help our clients identify the problems, their causes, and their possible solutions. We also offer therapy, prescribe medication, and support clients in making adjustments to the way they sleep, their sleeping environment, and other factors that may contribute to the sleeping problem.
Dissociative Disorders
Individuals with Dissociative Disorders may experience disconnection and a lack of continuity among thoughts, memories, surroundings, actions, and identity. Clients with these conditions are often advised to undergo psychotherapy to address past trauma and present issues. Exploring these will help clients understand why they are dissociating and find healthier coping mechanisms.
Impulse Control Disorders
Impulse Control Disorders are characterized by impulses that are difficult or impossible to resist. The nature of these impulses is excessive or harmful to the individual and even other people. The effects of this disorder may violate the rights of others and be in conflict with societal norms without consideration of the consequences. That’s why, if left unchecked, individuals with this condition may land in jail or cause damage to themselves, others, and properties. Therapy and medication (if seen as essential) are often recommended for individuals with these conditions.
Personality Disorders
Personality disorders affect a person’s behavior, feelings, and way of thinking. They have been observed to cause problems in one’s functioning, create distress, cause someone to deviate from cultural expectations, and last over time. The treatment for personality disorders is a mix of medication and psychotherapy to address the neurological and psychosocial factors. Here are the types of personality disorders:

Cluster A

  • Paranoid personality disorder
  • Schizoid personality disorder
  • Schizotypal personality disorder

Cluster B

  • Antisocial personality disorder
  • Borderline personality disorder
  • Histrionic personality disorder

Treatment for this condition may involve medications and therapy.
