Psychotherapy is a common treatment for behavioral health issues, and is often referred to as talk therapy. This type of therapy helps patients understand their illness and teaches ways to recognize behaviors and manage their symptoms. Treatment of mental illnesses is as individual as the person with the disease. Haven Behavioral Hospital of Dayton offers family and group psychotherapy as just a few of the options available for treatment.
When one member of the family is struggling with emotional or behavioral problems often it affects the whole family. Not only do behavioral health issues add stress to families, but often there are conflicts within families that add to the mental health struggles of the patient. Haven Behavioral Hospital of Dayton’s team of experienced clinicians utilize Family Therapy to work through the issues within the family and create a plan to return to healthy functioning. Whether dealing with a sick family member or stuck in the stressors of everyday life, help is available.
Group Therapy is a common and very successful form of behavioral health therapy. Many view these groups as a support system, and hearing the issues of others puts your own problems into a different perspective. Talking to people who have similar experiences and understand what you are going through is very reassuring. Not only is the group setting comforting, but the sessions are led by highly trained mental health professionals who assist with the direction of the therapy. Haven Behavioral Hospital of Dayton has therapeutic groups available to assist in the treatment of various behavioral health needs.
