Inspirations Mental Health and Teen Addiction Treatment
Inspirations Teen Rehab is a quality treatment program for major mental health disorders, which include both drugs and psychotherapy as preferred treatment methods. Inspirations Teen Rehab has designed a Mental Health Program with a comprehensive team of doctors and clinicians. At the Inspirations Teen Rehab, psychiatrists are not the only mental health care practitioners trained to treat mental illness. Others include clinical psychologists, social workers, and nurses, all of whom must hold appropriate credentials. Psychiatrists (and psychiatric nurse practitioners in some states) are the only mental health care practitioners licensed to prescribe drugs. Other mental health care practitioners practice psychotherapy primarily.
Inspirations Teen Rehab Addiction and Mental Health Treatment Center also provides a medical doctor who oversees all practices and visits with teens. Inspirations further supports the treatment of mental health disorders by integrating the therapeutic talents of their Chief Executive Officer Ed Cejka.
Inspirations Mental Health Treatment Approach
The first step involves comprehending the cause of the mental health issues or disorders, which in turn helps our doctors and clinicians individualize treatment for each teen, offering a treatment plan addressing mental health, medication, and therapeutic interventions.
