Primary, Dental, and Behavioral Health
Many people use the terms “behavioral health” and “mental health” synonymously. While similar, there are important differences. In healthcare, mental health usually refers to one aspect of behavioral health—namely, counseling. While behavioral health includes mental health, it also focuses more broadly on the whole person. Eating, exercising, and sleeping habits all contribute to a person’s behavioral and mental health, as do prescription medications designed to treat mental and substance abuse disorders.
At the Jim Meyer Comprehensive Health Center, we have an integrated approach with behavioral health. We believe treating the whole person is the most effective way to manage all behavioral health struggles. Whether you need help with anxiety, depression, obesity, diabetes management, or substance abuse disorders, we can help you get your life back.
Ending substance abuse requires much more than breaking old habits and developing new ones. Long after detox, former users may still be at risk of relapse. Factors such as stress, depression, anxiety, or your community can become triggers, reviving an old craving without warning. Finding new ways to manage stress and cope with different life circumstances are essential to living life free of substance abuse. Counseling is one of the best ways to learn how to access the mental tools that help you respond to your circumstances in a positive and constructive, rather than destructive, way.
Suboxone is a proven method for opioid dependence and addiction recovery. Suboxone is an oral medication that we prescribe in-house. It is designed to effectively suppress withdrawal symptoms as well as cravings. The program is much more than a pill, however. It is a comprehensive approach to recovery. Along with the suboxone prescription, our team of counselors and internal medicine doctors will come alongside you or your loved one who suffers from opioid dependency and help you find restoration.
