Ready for Recovery?
A better future is within reach. Call now to get help.
If you suffer from a mental health disorder, you are not alone. According to research from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), one in five adults in the United States experiences mental illness, and one in twenty experiences serious mental illness. Of the millions affected, roughly half will never receive treatment.
We need to shed light on mental health statistics to end misinformation, discrimination, and stigma. Harmony Hills understands that receiving a mental health diagnosis can feel scary. However, we also know that a proper diagnosis is the first step toward healing.
When you are ready to seek treatment, the different levels of care and types of programs to choose from can make selecting the best fit feel overwhelming. Talking with a mental health professional can help determine the mental health therapy programs best suited to your needs.
Diagnosing a mental health disorder is not straightforward. Unlike other diseases like diabetes, there is no single test. Diagnosis involves a comprehensive mental health assessment that includes a complete physical, medical history, family history, and interviews and testing with a psychotherapist. Each mental health disorder has its unique symptoms, impacting each person differently based on their makeup and circumstances. That said, symptoms often overlap.
General signs and symptoms that you need mental health therapy can include:
Excessive use of drugs or alcohol or reliance on them to cope with mental and emotional duress is another common sign of mental health disorders. Of course, this list is inconclusive, and no one or two signs indicate a definitive mental health disorder. However, identifying most of these signs in yourself or a loved one can predict the need for treatment.
Mental health disorders occur on a spectrum from mild to severe. At Harmony Hills, we know that a cookie-cutter approach to mental health treatment is ineffective. Treatment needs vary from person to person. Even individuals with the same diagnosis will have different needs, objectives, and goals for treatment. Comprehensive mental health treatment utilizes a combination of evidence-based and holistic therapies designed to treat the whole person, not just their diagnosis. Some of the mental health treatment therapies available at Harmony Hills include:
When people are directly involved in creating their mental health treatment plan, including defining recovery and wellness goals, choosing services that support their needs, and evaluating their progress, treatment outcomes are improved.
For individuals struggling with mental health disorders, any professional treatment is better than no treatment at all. People with milder symptoms can typically benefit from medication, outpatient therapy, or a combination of both. However, people with moderate to severe or recurring symptoms may require a higher level of care, such as an intensive outpatient program (IOP), partial hospitalization program (PHP), or residential treatment program.
A residential treatment program for mental health offers unique benefits not found in lower levels of care. Foremost is access to around-the-clock treatment from a multidisciplinary treatment team, including doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, and behavioral specialists, in a safe, stable, and secure environment. In residential treatment, you can focus on recovery without daily life stressors or triggers from an unstable environment. Other benefits include:
Through mental health treatment therapies, you will also gain:
All of these skills will enable you or your loved one to eliminate acute symptoms and learn to manage your mental health for the long term, resulting in a better quality of life.
Whether this is your first time seeking treatment or you have tried outpatient treatment services without the desired effects, residential treatment at Harmony Hills provides effective treatment for lasting recovery utilizing a combination of evidence-based and holistic mental health treatment therapies for:
