Behavioral health issues are complex and require a proper assessment and course of action. Many people who suffer from a variety of addictive disorders and mental health issues lead highly successful lives. They’re at the top of their profession, successful entrepreneurs who’ve attained enormous success against great odds, household names and storied celebrities. And yet, in the shadows of their success, they struggle under the destructive weight of behavioral health issues that include alcoholism, addiction to prescription drugs including Ambien, Oxycontin, Xanax, addiction to street drugs including cocaine, heroin, crystal meth and legalized marijuana. It is important that they don’t wait to hit bottom before receiving the treatment they need.
They find that the anti-anxiety or anti-depressant medications including Prozac, Lexapro, Wellbutrin they have been prescribed by their concierge, primary care physician or psychiatrist no longer give them the relief they once did. They are struggling with physical health issues, diabetes, cardiovascular issues including high blood pressure (hypertension) and knee, back and other joint pain. In addition to these physical issues, their interpersonal relationships are beginning to become frayed. They may be involved or have had an infidelity in their primary relationship or marriage discovered. Their wives, husbands, children or business associates may have given them an ultimatum – “Stop your current behavior and change or there will be harsh consequences.” More frequently than not, these issues present as a mélange, interwoven into the fabric of the person’s life.
What We Offer
When a potential client meets with a member of our staff, we will shine a light on the addictive behaviors that they may have been in denial for for many years. In these cases, diagnosis and assessment may take longer than a single interview and a 72-hour, medically assisted detoxification protocol. A more effective and cost effective strategy is to address them in our comprehensive, 10-day intensive program wherein they will receive a comprehensive medical assessment, an in-depth psychological assessment, nutritional evaluation, relational assessment and overall stabilization.
At the end of this period, they will have a clear and articulated plan of action that can be implemented in the next stage of recovery either at Urban Recovery or at another facility that fits their plan of action. No one discharges UR without a comprehensive treatment plan and a clear understanding of the next steps in recovery.
