How Is Mental Health Treated in Atlanta?
Mental health treatment in Atlanta is available through a variety of methods. Mental health care can be obtained through counseling, medication management, inpatient and outpatient programs, and support groups.
Counseling is a common form of mental health treatment, including individual, family, and group therapy. Mental health medication is also available to treat mental health issues. In addition, inpatient and outpatient mental health treatment programs are available for those who require more intensive and structured care.
Our support groups provide a safe and supportive environment for individuals to share their experiences and receive support. Each of our patient’s programs is customized to fit their specific needs and objectives to help them feel better.
Types of Mental Health Treatment We Provide
TMS therapy in Atlanta is a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment for many mental health disorders, as well as dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and smoking cessation. It uses targeted magnetic pulses to stimulate areas of the brain that are involved in mood regulation.
TMS therapy is administered by a trained psychiatrist or healthcare professional in an outpatient setting. The treatment is usually administered several times a week with up to five sessions per week, depending on the patient’s condition and needs. Treatment can last between four and five weeks. The goal of TMS therapy is to improve mood and reduce symptoms.
Spravato/Ketamine therapy is a drug therapy used to treat depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. It involves the administration of ketamine, a medication approved by the FDA for treating mental health disorders. Our ketamine therapy in Atlanta can be administered intravenously or in an intranasal spray.
Psychiatry services may include diagnosis and treatment of mental health disorders, medication management, psychotherapy, and other treatments. Treatment plans are tailored to each individual and include medication, psychotherapy, lifestyle changes, and other therapies. Psychiatry services can help individuals manage their mental health issues, improve their quality of life, and help them reach their goals.
Psychotherapy is a form of mental health treatment that involves talking with a mental health professional to discuss thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to treat a variety of mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, and trauma.
During psychotherapy, the therapist will listen, support, and help the individual to explore and understand their thoughts and feelings. The goal of psychotherapy is to help the individual gain insight and develop skills to cope with their mental health issues.
Genetic testing for mental health is a type of testing used to identify genetic variants that may contribute to mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. This test looks for specific genes associated with these conditions. Genetic testing can help psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals better understand the factors that contribute to mental health conditions and develop more effective treatment plans.
Psychiatric evaluations are assessments conducted by mental health professionals to gather information about a person’s mental health status to help diagnose a mental health disorder. During an evaluation, the mental health professional will ask questions about a person’s mental and physical health, current symptoms, past medical history, family history, and lifestyle. The evaluation may also involve physical exams, laboratory tests, and other assessments.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for mental health is a form of treatment that combines medications with counseling and behavioral therapies to treat mental health disorders. The drugs used in MAT work by changing the level of certain chemicals in the brain that affect mood and behavior.
MAT is used to treat various mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and substance use disorders. MAT can be used alone or in combination with other forms of treatment.
MAT for substance use is an evidence-based practice that combines medications, counseling, and behavioral therapies to treat substance use disorders. The drugs used in MAT help to reduce cravings, ease withdrawal symptoms, and block the effects of the addictive substance.
Nutritionist services are provided by a nutritionist to help individuals with mental health issues or substance use disorders maintain a balanced, healthy diet. Services may include nutritional counseling or education, meal planning, and preparation. Eating a balanced diet can help to improve mood and reduce symptoms of mental health disorders and substance use disorders.
