We live in challenging times. Many individuals, families and companies are experiencing life or mental health issues over which they simply cannot get control. Others are confronted with legal or court related issues that are confusing and overwhelming at best.
Access to care and solutions are inhibited by the inability to find the right care, the right caregiver or figuring out a way to get those who have needs into the type of treatment that is best for them. This is especially true with young people, and further focused on those with substance abuse problems. Many parents are confronted with children who need help but are unwilling to allow themselves to get the help they need.
Often, troubled people find that they can only do reasonably well while in treatment and, without the proper aftercare and support, they quickly relapse.
Help, once it is found, is limited, short term and symptom based, leaving the person in need still having to grapple with their problems. Recidivism is high, solutions are few.
Many people are anxious, confused and do not know where to turn.
Our goal is to provide a new level of treatment we call Case Management or Life Management.
In his 40 plus years of clinical Psychology work, Dr. Halperin has found that the cause of recidivism is, more often than not, the lack of a proper individualized support system with attention to the mastery of living skills needed that lead to success.
Simply going to treatment for a few weeks is not enough. After detox or residential treatment, the person with addiction problems returns to a life without any success skills in it. Patients with mental health issues face the same dilemma. They simply do not have the skills to navigate life. Follow-up treatment is limited and often of little help. They need more help than is being offered.
The person with mood disorders, stress disorders or trauma find themselves referred simply for medication or limited therapy and gain no further understanding of the skills needed to overcome their problems.
Almost all treatment today is controlled by insurance companies who demand short term, symptom focused, limited treatment. Almost all patients are left without a full resolution of their problems.
We believe that people need treatment focused on their needs, not the profitability of a third party with the limited treatment available to them.
Clinical approaches based upon individualized patient needs are the only effective forms of treatment that lead to successful outcomes.
Unfortunately, most treatment these days are based on models that are not specific to each individual’s needs and are never long enough to address the lifestyle changes needed to reach some satisfactory resolution.
People who reach out for help need a comprehensive approach to their issues that encompass all aspects of their lives.
We have assembled a team of highly trained and qualified professional to help people navigate all aspects of mental health, addiction, stress, trauma and lifestyle help.
