Behavioral Health Treatment & Support Services
Life's Energy Wellness Center Inc Provides Outpatient Mental Health Treatment Services that are person centered and Family Centered.
Individual Psychotherapy: Focuses on a patient’s current life and relationships within the family, social, and work environments through one-on-one conversations with a therapist. The goal is to identify and resolve problems with insight, as well as build on strengths.
Couples/Family Therapy: Two similar approaches that use discussions and problem-solving sessions, facilitated by a therapist, to help couples and family members improve their understanding of, and the way they respond to, one another. This type of therapy can resolve patterns of behavior that might lead to more severe mental illness. Family therapy can help educate about the nature of mental disorders and teach skills to better cope with the effects of having a family member with a mental illness, such as how to deal with feelings of anger or guilt.
Group Therapy: Involves groups of usually 4 to 12 people who have similar problems and who meet regularly with a therapist. The therapist uses the emotional interactions of the group's members to (1) help them get relief from distress and (2) possibly modify their behavior.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: A combination of cognitive and behavioral therapies, helps people change negative thought patterns, beliefs, and behaviors so they can manage symptoms and enjoy more productive, less stressful lives.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): A cognitive-behavioral treatment approach with two key characteristics: a behavioral, problem-solving focus blended with acceptance-based strategies, and an emphasis on dialectical processes. "Dialectical" refers to the issues involved in treating patients with multiple disorders and to the type of thought processes and behavioral styles used in the treatment strategies. DBT has five components: (1) capability enhancement (skills training); (2) motivational enhancement (individual behavioral treatment plans); (3) generalization (access to therapist outside clinical setting, homework, and inclusion of family in treatment); (4) structuring of the environment (programmatic emphasis on reinforcement of adaptive behaviors); and (5) capability and motivational enhancement of therapists (therapist team consultation group). DBT emphasizes balancing behavioral change, problem-solving, and emotional regulation with validation, mindfulness, and acceptance.
Cognitive Remediation Therapy: A type of rehabilitation treatment offering exercises with an aim at improving attention, memory, language and/or executive functions. The expected result is an indirect positive impact on functional deficits affecting everyday life. Proper treatment with these therapies can help enhance the social and professional integration of patients.
Behavior Modification: Applies learning and conditioning principles to modify overt behaviors, which are those behaviors obvious to everyone, including the client/patient.
Trauma Therapy: An intervention that focuses on reducing or eliminating symptoms, improving functioning, and reducing the long-term negative effects of trauma in persons who have experienced a traumatic event such as physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, family tragedy, violence, war, or natural disaster.
Integrated Mental Health and Substance Use Treatment: Provides combined treatment for mental illness and substance abuse from the same clinician or treatment team. Effective integrated treatment programs view recovery as a long-term, community-based process. The approach employs counseling designed especially for those with co-occurring disorders.
Activity Therapy: Includes art, dance, music, recreational and occupational therapies, and psychodrama.
Telemedicine/Telehealth Therapy: The ability for healthcare providers, working from a distance using telecommunications technology, to communicate with patients, diagnose conditions, provide treatment, and discuss healthcare issues with other providers to ensure quality healthcare services are provided. Other names used for this treatment approach are: e-medicine, e-therapy, e-psychiatry, and telepsychiatry.
Court-ordered Treatment: It allows people convicted of certain crimes to receive treatment for a substance use or mental health disorder. A treatment team composed of a judge, lawyers, case managers, health providers and therapists works with the defendant to provide effective treatment and ensure legal compliance. The members of the team remain in regular communication. They encourage support from family members and friends during hearings, therapy and discharge
Case management (CM): Helps people arrange for appropriate services and supports through a case manager who monitors the needs of clients/patients and their families and coordinates services, such as mental health, social work, health, educational, vocational, recreational, transportation, advocacy, and respite care, as needed.
Family Psychoeducation: Helps consumers and their families and supporters, through relationship building, education, collaboration, and problem solving, to: 1) learn about mental illness; 2) master new ways of managing their mental illness; 3) reduce tension and stress within the family; 4) provide social support and encouragement to each other; 5) focus on the future; and 6) find ways for families and supporters to help consumers in their recovery.
Psychosocial rehabilitation services: Offered individually or in groups, provide therapeutic or intervention services such as daily and community-living skills, self-care and skills training (grooming, bodily care, feeding, social skills training, and basic language skills).
Smoking/vaping/tobacco cessation counseling: Includes interventions for persons who use tobacco and want help with stopping, including behavioral support or counseling in groups or individually.
Nicotine replacement therapy: Administers nicotine to the body by means other than tobacco, without other harmful chemicals found in tobacco. Common forms of nicotine replacement therapy are nicotine patches, nicotine gum or lozenges, nasal spray and inhaler. The goal of nicotine replacement is to prevent cravings in a tobacco user, allowing the person to abstain from tobacco.
Peer support services: Are provided by mental health consumers and include mental health treatment or support services, such as social clubs, peer-support groups, and other peer-organized or consumer-run activities (e.g., consumer satisfaction evaluations of mental health treatment).
