Achieving lasting recovery from mental health conditions is possible with STR Behavioral Health. With the goal of understanding each client’s unique needs, we provide a safe and supportive environment. Our next step is to create a treatment plan that meets their specific needs. In order to live a more independent life after treatment, our clinical team helps clients learn self-reliance and self-awareness skills.

Upon admission to our program, every client will undergo a psychiatric evaluation and a biopsychosocial assessment by a master’s level clinician. Once a treatment plan has been established, group therapy, individual counseling, case management, family therapy, and medication management can all be provided to clients.

What We Treat

Anxiety Disorder

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is characterized by excessive worries about daily life, which aren’t typically a source of constant dread for other people. For example, an individual with generalized anxiety disorder may worry that while walking to work, someone will accidentally knock a heavy object out of a window above, knocking them unconscious or worse. While this event is possible, it’s highly unlikely. Generalized anxiety disorder can also cause frequent heart palpitations or intrusive, worrisome thoughts.

Bipolar Disorder

A bipolar disorder causes mood and energy swings, including manic and depressive episodes. People with this condition experience episodes of unrealistic high and low mental states, including manic episodes during which they may become detached from reality. On the other extreme, they might believe they possess superpowers or, in a less extreme form, shop impulsively for things they can’t afford. Although there isn’t a singular cause for bipolar disorder, one theory is that the condition is caused by a defect in brain circuitry, which involves areas that control mood, thought, and behavior. In addition, stress can play a role in development, and in women, hormonal fluctuations may also exacerbate symptoms. Although there’s a genetic hypothesis for bipolar disorder, no gene or gene set has been identified that increases the likelihood of developing the condition.

Borderline Personality Disorder

Those with personality disorders, including borderline personality disorder (BPD), have intense emotions that come on suddenly and go away quickly, frequently within hours. Individuals with personality disorders usually receive little to no sympathy from those around them because few can understand the source behind their emotions. Mood swings, unstable relationships, challenges with long-term planning, impulse control, and self-identity issues are traits of personality disorders. One of the main signs is an obsessive fear of abandonment, which manifests as a desperate desire for personal relationships as well as irrational, impulsive behavior that drives people away. Those who struggle with a personality disorder frequently have higher rates of self-harm and suicidal thoughts.

Depression

A major depressive disorder interferes with a person’s capacity to function. While depressed, one may struggle to handle daily responsibilities like working, school, or interacting with family and friends. Some people may only experience depression once in their lives, but those diagnosed with major depression experience recurrent episodes.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

OCD is characterized by recurrent, unpleasant thoughts and rituals that interfere with day-to-day living. For instance, if you have OCD, you might worry about leaving the oven on when you leave your home. You might not be persuaded that your oven is off even after visiting your house three or four times. Rituals that will stop anything “bad” from happening, like repeatedly washing your hands to avoid becoming sick, are some coping techniques used by those suffering from OCD.

Schizophrenia and Schizoaffective Disorder

Both schizoaffective and schizophrenia disorders are psychotic conditions characterized by impairments in a person’s ability to sense reality as it is and the production of imaginary sights or sounds in a person’s mind. These disorders affect a person’s behavior, thought process, and emotions, frequently leaving the sufferer prone to delusional, irrational beliefs about themselves or others. Schizophrenia can also make it difficult for a person to focus, manage their emotions, make decisions, or create normal motivations, making them act unusually withdrawn or anxious in social settings. Although schizophrenia can occur at any age, it typically shows symptoms in males in their late teens and early 20s and women in their late 20s and early 30s. Schizophrenia is rarely identified in patients older than 40 or younger than 12 years old.
