Behavioral Health Counseling
Behavioral Health, as a general concept, refers to the shared relationship between people, individually or socially, and the well-being of the body, mind, and spirit, whether the later are considered individually or as an integrated whole.
The key to recovery is lifelong monitoring of a person's lifestyle so he or she can avoid triggers, significant stress, and any use of addictive substances.
Tender Loving Mercy is a dual diagnosis outpatient treatment center where cutting edge, evidence-based and analysis meet world-class drug and alcohol addiction treatment.
Those suffering with dual diagnosis experience not only the pain of chemical dependency and addiction but also a co-occurring emotional or psychiatric illness such as Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Phobia, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Personality Disorders, Gambling Addiction, Sex Addiction and Eating Disorders, only to name a few. Both illnesses may affect an individual physically, psychologically, socially, and spiritually, and each illness has symptoms that interfere with a person’s ability to function effectively and relate to themselves and others.
Furthermore, with dual diagnosis, not only is the individual affected by two separate illnesses, but also each illness interacts with the other, potentially exacerbating symptoms on each side and predisposing the individual to relapse in each of the illnesses.
At times the symptoms associated with dual diagnosis can overlap and mask each other making diagnosis and treatment more difficult.Tender Loving Mercy has created an exceptional team of professionals to assess any individuals needs for intensive day treatment or outpatient.
