Mental Health Treatment in Sacramento

Mental health treatment in Sacramento offers thorough and effective outpatient mental health treatment that includes medications, psychotherapy, and non-traditional eastern medicine approaches. AKUA Mind and Body Sacramento caters to all adult men and women struggling with a mental health disorder or a co-occurring disorder, a combination of a mental health disorder and substance use disorder. 

Depression, anxiety, trauma-related disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and other mental health disorders tend to infiltrate every aspect of your daily life, including personal life, professional life, and social life. If left diagnosed or untreated, mental health disorders could start to eat away at your well-being and cause physical, emotional, and mental turmoil that can potentially affect your future endeavors. In addition, the longer you wait to seek professional treatment, the longer it may take for you to get back on track to living a happy, healthy, and productive life. 

If you are struggling with a mental health disorder, you may find yourself acting out of character. Others may approach and inquire about your well-being. You may be angry, exhausted, depressed, impatient, and may even take your emotions out on the people you love, such as your children, spouse, and friends. If you are struggling with a mental health disorder, you can benefit from entering into treatment at an outpatient mental health facility in Sacramento. 

AKUA Mind and Body offers outpatient mental health treatment that includes many treatment modalities, as we believe in treating the mind, body, and soul. We tailor our treatment to the individual and not the disorder as we believe that each client presents differently, regardless of the mental health disorder. So how can you tell if you need treatment? Below are common signs and symptoms associated with mental health disorders:

  • Excessive worry or fear
  • Feeling sad throughout the day
  • Confusion or difficulty concentrating
  • Extreme changes in mood
  • Difficulty perceiving reality
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Difficulty completing tasks
  • Using drugs and/or alcohol as unhealthy coping mechanisms
  • Changes in eating habits
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Changes in personality
  • Inability to relate to others
  • Somatic symptoms (headaches, abdominal pain, muscle pain) without underlying causes 

Suppose you are experiencing any combination of the above signs and symptoms. In that case, you may want to consider contacting a mental health outpatient treatment center so our treatment staff can address your signs and symptoms, determine a diagnosis and develop an individualized treatment plan to best suit your needs. AKUA Mind and Body provides individual, group, and family therapy for struggling with a mental health disorder. 

 

Substance Abuse Treatment in Sacramento

Substance abuse involves using illicit or illegal substances or using prescription medications in ways other than what they are intended for. Common drugs of abuse include opioids, benzodiazepines, cocaine, sleeping pills, “study drugs’ ‘ and hallucinogens. Drugs of abuse, regardless of whether they are prescription or illegal, can potentially create a lot of harm and interfere with your physical and mental health. Substance use disorder can also wreak havoc on your personal and professional life and potentially result in legal troubles, financial difficulties, and broken relationships. Addiction can affect everyone, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or social class.

Drug abuse treatment in Sacramento first requires detoxification in a supervised setting, where the client will withdraw from the substance of abuse. The goal of detoxification is to administer medications safely and effectively so the individual experiences minimal withdrawal side effects. Depending on the drug of abuse, withdrawal symptoms can range from minimal to highly uncomfortable to lethal. As a result, it is always recommended that the individual undergoes withdrawal in an addiction treatment setting. Medications administered during the detoxification phase help minimize withdrawal symptoms and help reduce cravings and potentially reduce relapse rates. Once the initial phase of detoxification is completed, the individual is strongly encouraged to enter outpatient drug abuse treatment in Sacramento to undergo structured treatment. Outpatient drug abuse treatment in Sacramento offers psychotherapy approaches that help individuals recognize underlying triggers that may have driven them to use drugs. Therapy also teaches the client healthy coping skills to overcome future life challenges during their recovery journey. Once the individual enters outpatient drug abuse treatment in Sacramento, medications that were given during detoxification can also be administered during this time in hopes of reducing cravings and preventing relapse rates over the long term. This is known as medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and, when used in combination with psychotherapy, can have a relatively high success rate for long-term recovery.

Therefore it is recommended that individuals enter a drug rehab center in Sacramento to safely withdraw from the drug of abuse then enter into outpatient treatment. Drug addiction treatment in Sacramento can help you create the building blocks to rebuild your life and enter onto a successful road to recovery. 

 

Alcohol Abuse Treatment in Sacramento

Alcohol use disorder is a widespread addiction across the United States, affecting nearly 17 million individuals each year. Alcohol is commonly abused because it is legal, socially acceptable, and commonly used as an unhealthy coping mechanism to deal with daily stressors and long-term problems. As a result, alcohol is often abused without even realizing they may have an alcohol use disorder. During the initial phases of alcohol addiction, the individual most likely can function normally. They can show up to work, be present for their family, and take care of personal obligations. However, over time, alcohol use disorder takes a toll on the body and mind.

Alcohol can have acute and chronic medical consequences and can result in mental health disorders. Alcohol use disorder can also wreak havoc on an individual’s personal and professional life over time. An individual may spend less time with their family and more time drinking. They may call in sick to work because they are hungover or come into work intoxicated. Individuals who have an alcohol use disorder or alcohol addiction cannot take a step back and quit drinking. They may not be able to quit because they are psychologically dependent or physically dependent on alcohol. When they try to stop, they will exhibit both psychological and physical withdrawal symptoms. As a result, their alcohol use disorder will leak into every aspect of their life.

Admitting you have an alcohol use disorder and entering into alcohol abuse treatment in Sacramento is the first step to your new life. Withdrawing from alcohol can be life-threatening, and as a result, it is necessary to enter into alcohol detox centers in Sacramento. Medications to ease alcohol withdrawal effects are administered under medical supervision at outpatient alcohol detox in Sacramento. Once detoxification is complete, the individual will enter into an outpatient treatment program to begin their journey to an alcohol-free life.
