Nearly 40% of people with a substance use disorder have a co-occurring mental health diagnosis. That’s about eight million people. Rehab programs must address mental health and addiction at the same time to meaningfully support recovery. Mile High Recovery Center’s mental health treatment program in Colorado treats mental health issues both independently and in conjunction with substance use disorders.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to treating mental health conditions or dual diagnoses. That’s why, at Mile High Recovery Center, we offer a wide range of mental health treatment options. Call Mile High Recovery Center today at 303-268-2144 to learn more about mental health counseling in Denver. You can also reach us by filling out our online form.
Mental Health in the U.S.
No matter what kind of mental health challenge someone has, they deserve to get help. One in four Americans experience a mental health disorder, while one in 20 has a severe mental illness.
Sadly, only a fraction of those who need help receive it, and for those who do, the average time lapse between the onset of symptoms and receiving help is eleven years. Barriers to help-seeking include stigma, being un- or underinsured, lack of education, lack of access to mental health services, among others. Too often, people who have mental illness end up in prison instead of in treatment. At Mile High Recovery, we are committed to helping as many people in Denver access meaningful behavioral health treatment as possible.
Mental Health Treatment Center in Denver
Mile High Recovery is fully committed to your mental well-being. Of the one in four people who will deal with a mental health issue at least once in their lifetime, some have a diagnosable mental health disorder, while others may experience a single episode of major depression or other serious challenges. And for some, the mental health issue co-occurs with addiction. It is called a dual diagnosis when someone has both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder.
At Mile High Recovery, we offer a variety of evidence-based treatment options for mental health. Some of them are listed below.
- Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) focuses on accepting your thoughts and feelings instead of letting them fill you with guilt. This therapy is based in mindfulness and committed action.
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is highly goal-oriented, with the objective of identifying and then shifting dysfunctional thoughts and harmful beliefs.
- Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is another highly effective therapy that relies on the principles of mindfulness as well as focusing on distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and
interpersonal effectiveness to treat a range of disorders, including PTSD.
- Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) treats trauma and other mental health symptoms by safely desensitizing you to the images, thoughts, emotions, and bodily sensations that connect to your trauma so the brain can heal.
Whether you have depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, or are a victim of trauma, Mile High Recovery Center’s mental health treatment center in Denver can help.
