Awakenings has a reputation as being one of the most trusted outpatient mental health facilities in the country. If you’re currently searching for addiction treatment in an outpatient setting, we have the right program to meet your needs. Our staff understands that not everyone has the luxury of leaving behind work, school, and life at home in order to enter a residential treatment center. We offer a full continuum of recovery care while providing our clients with the convenience of living at home. We treat all of the following:
Medicating anxiety, depression, pain, trauma, or sorrow often leads to an addiction. What usually begins as recreational or occasional use can quickly turn into a physical compulsion that is very difficult to beat. Drug addiction affects every aspect of a person’s life, from their career or job to life at home- and in nearly all cases, the underlying cause that led to drug use is never addressed.
It can be challenging to diagnose alcoholism or bring to light the fact that the use of alcohol is negatively impacting one’s life since the use of alcohol is legal and socially acceptable in almost all situations. Alcoholics most often drink to excess, quickly becoming dependent upon its effects to feel what they consider the new normal. When not addressed, long-term alcoholism causes irreversible damage to the brain and a host of additional issues that can take many years to work through.
It’s not always necessary to seek treatment for alcoholism in a residential treatment setting. Awakenings Outpatient mental health facilities offers hope for a future free from addiction through programs and treatment options in an outpatient environment. You won’t have to quit your job, put off school, or disrupt your home life to get the treatment you need.
Using food to control weight is not actually about food at all; instead, it is a disorder that uses food as a tool to feel in control over or cope with emotions that are painful and otherwise unmanageable. If you or someone you love is beginning to exhibit signs that the focus on food is more about moods and feelings than about health and nutrition, reach out to someone from Awakenings. When treated early, an eating disorder responds positively to treatment.
In addition to these common addictions, Awakenings also treats:
- Borderline Personality Disorder
- Chronic Pain
- And a number of Dual Diagnosis conditions
