Psychological Services in Portland, ME

Over time, drug and alcohol abuse problems may begin to cause difficulties in our life. Our health, emotions, relationships, spirituality, finances, family life, legal status, or employment can all become affected. For those who do begin to experience problems associated with drug or alcohol use, there is hope for recovery with the psychological services offered at Liberty Bay Recovery in Portland, Maine.

We are able to prescribe and refill medication for anxiety and depression, but for other mental health concerns we refer out. Certainly, more severe mental health concerns may arise after you have some time clean and sober. If these traits emerge, or they were not disclosed during admission, we do our best to find outside psychiatric help while you are receiving treatment.

Are you aware that there are millions of people worldwide battling all types of mental illnesses and addictions? Many of them are not even aware of their current situations, nor do they have anyone looking out for them. Unfortunately, even families and friends are often known to overlook a multitude of mental illnesses and addictions. Many people who are tied down by their own mental illnesses and addiction may have gone into counseling for treatment and resolutions, but many did not receive sufficient amounts of diagnosis or counseling sessions.

If an individual who suffers from mental illness or addiction isn’t cared for even after their treatments or counseling sessions, then they are very likely to relapse after their time of discharge from rehabilitation programs. To assure that you or a loved one receives the proper treatments necessary for a full recovery and brighter outlook on life, contact the counselors of Liberty Bay Recovery in Portland, Maine today.

Alcohol and the use of drugs have been a great escape for millions of abusers worldwide. With the usage of drugs and alcohol, the abusers are able to reach a realm within themselves that enables them to feel better momentarily while pushing away any negative feelings that may be causing setbacks. Although the pain may subside for a short period of time, this is only a numbing effect that requires them to resort back to using again. Not only does this addiction slowly take over their lives, but it also cuts away at their pockets, bank accounts, and hopes for the future. This is because that momentary relief that is achieved through the usage of drugs and alcohol doesn’t address the issues that are underlying within the individual. Once the feeling wears off, the problems they were thinking about before will be back, and the cycle continues repetitively.

The Importance of Psychological Services

Recovery is a necessary and important step in overcoming substance abuse and addiction. Unfortunately, many patients often fall back to their previous thoughts and beliefs after leaving their rehabilitation period, which is why it is imperative to follow-up with continuing services. Some effective methods of rehabilitation are talk therapy, modification of behavior, and other beneficial psychological services that implement self-awareness to the addict in recovery. They are also provided with coping mechanisms that deal with any emotions that may make them feel uncomfortable.

Liberty Bay counselors offer psychological services that integrate into their patients’ specific rehabilitation programs. This combined approach treats the entirety of the patient’s problems, not just a single addiction. The treatment and recovery model has proven itself to lead towards long-term results. Individuals are able to learn about living a sober and productive life while allowing nothing to hold them back from their ultimate goals.
