Wellness is a state of physical, mental, and social well-being, not just the absence of disease. Wellness is also a process of change and growth, with the goal of reaching our full potential. At FamilyCare, we can help our patients achieve the highest possible level of wellness through services that combine physical care (medical and dental) with behavioral health care (mental health, social services, treatment for addictions).
An important part of your health is how you feel emotionally. That’s why we have mental health professionals as part of your health care team.
Our therapists can help with issues such as anger management; depression; anxiety; coping with grief or loss; drug and alcohol problems; trauma; self-esteem; stress management; eating disorders; memory problems; sleep difficulty; cutting; ADHD; relationship concerns; or any other stressful life situation.
We can also address medical problems affected by mental health or health behaviors, such as uncontrolled diabetes, GERD, COPD, CVD, IBS, tobacco cessation, health anxiety, chronic pain, and obesity.
Counseling sessions are always confidential. You will have an opportunity to learn about yourself, set goals, and work on achieving those goals at a pace that is comfortable for you.
FamilyCare provides a program for adults with a dependence on opioids (pain medication, heroin), alcohol, and tobacco. We offer Medication-Assisted Therapy or Medication-Free Therapy and will work with our patients to choose the method that works best for them.
Medication-Assisted Therapy for adults with dependence on opioid includes counseling, as well as the medication, Suboxone. We also provide therapy and the medication, Vivitrol, for adults with opioid dependence and alcohol dependence, as well as therapy and Subutex for pregnant women with opioid dependence.
We also provide medication-free therapy for substance abuse.
Counseling is confidential and in a relaxed setting. You will learn about your addiction and work toward your goals. Through the supportive group environment, you can experience growth from the inside out, share experiences with others like you, and celebrate your sobriety.
