Behavioral Health Treatment Program
Behavioral health covers many facets of the brain, including behaviors that prevent illness and promote health as well as mental health conditions that develop from biological factors. Many people do not understand exactly what behavioral health is because it is not as easy to distinguish as physical health. Physical health is a little more straightforward because of the easily readable absence or presence of certain symptoms. On the other hand, psychiatric and mental health conditions are harder to detect because symptoms can be linked to an abundance of conditions. Sprout Health Arizona can carefully assess each patient for three elements: behavior, cognition and emotion.
The Effects of Behavioral Health on The Brain
Behavioral health is the foundation for Cognitive Behavior Therapy and relies heavily on the evaluation of the brain. It observes an individual’s behaviors while also considering what information is being processed by the brain. How a brain processes information will show what kind of behaviors an individual will exhibit.
For example, if you frequently think about someone that has passed away, you will eventually feel sad or depressed. Cognition occurs when the person thinks, depression is the emotional component and the behavioral part determines what decision they made after becoming sad or depressed. In this example, the person might turn to drinking or just ignoring the depressed or sad feeling, which shows how behavior is a result of how an individual processes the information they receive.
How the brain processes information has a direct influence on how a person will behave; therefore, they need to be inspected and sometimes reshaped in order to ensure that individuals exhibit acceptable behaviors.
Benefits of The Behavioral Health Program
Those who suffer from mental health disorders will benefit greatly from the behavioral health program. One thing to realize about mental health illness is that the brain has a distorted view and cannot recognize how to appropriately respond to particular problems. Individuals with mental health issues, as well as the potential to develop issues, such as those who have repeatedly experienced trauma, violence and domestic health, exhibit dysfunctional behavior that can be corrected if treated.
The behavioral health program does not just benefit those with mental health issues, but those who suffer from substance abuse, such as alcohol, prescription pills and illicit substances, as well. Addicts tend to exhibit the same symptoms as those with mental illness. They both exhibit faulty logic which leads them to the repeated and continual abuse of substances. Behavioral health programs teach how to control the risk of substance abuse as well as how to increase logical thought and create an understanding of an addiction.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the foundation for all behavioral health programs and works especially well for those who suffer from both addiction and mental health disorders, which is known as dual diagnosis or co-occurring illnesses. These therapies, offered at Sprout Health Arizona, properly address all issues that are complicating one another.
Sprout Health Arizona’s Behavioral Health Program
The behavioral health program at Sprout Health Arizona begins with a comprehensive assessment, which is given in order to understand each patient’s situation. The assessment helps our staff determine what treatments, medications and therapies are needed in order to ensure the best possible recovery.
Biopsychosocial examinations ascertain a patient’s mental, social and physical health. A psychiatric evaluation is also executed to discern whether or not a patient shows indications of mental illness. And finally, a physical evaluation to notate any lacerations, bruises or wounds that need to be treated.
These assessments are thorough but extremely necessary in forming the basis of an individual’s care plan. Modalities and therapeutic methods as well as the length of care are determined by the evaluations. Most Cognitive Behavioral Therapies are complemented with experiential therapies to increase a patient’s chance at completing a successful treatment. Our therapies are aimed at training the mind, creating peace and giving structure and direction that the individuals can follow well after completing therapy.
Group therapy sessions are also provided to give patients the opportunity to share their experiences in order to teach other patients how to learn new solutions to their problems. Patients will also gain a positive and reliable support network which is extremely beneficial for when they leave treatment.
Here at Sprout Health Arizona, we know that every individual is different; therefore, all our treatment plans are customized to fit each individual’s needs. We will dedicate time to monitor and reassess each patient’s progress. We care about our patients and believe that our behavioral health treatment programs will give them the best chances for continued success outside of our facilities.
