When seeking treatment, most people are concerned about managing their job, family, or even social life. This may be due to the stigma associated with mental health treatment perpetuated by tales of sealed-off inpatient facilities.
Mental health treatment can be offered inpatient or outpatient. Inpatient treatment requires clients to remain on site for the duration of their treatment. While outpatient settings offer more flexibility and are less restrictive.
A treatment recommendation will be made based on a couple of factors. Key factors include the severity of the condition and professional assessment by a qualified psychotherapist or psychiatrist.
Both outpatient and inpatient mental health treatment hold sufficient merit on their own. Outpatient treatment is effective in treating common mental health disorders with more flexibility for the patient.
Like other physical illnesses, mental illness may manifest in many different forms and intensities. Some result from genetic predisposition, chemical/hormonal imbalances, and behavioral, social, or environmental factors.
Some mental health conditions are more common than others . However, the most important thing to understand is that mental disorders are not anyone’s fault. No one should be ashamed of their disorder or seeking treatment.
With that in mind, Moment of Clarity strives to treat the most common disorders in Orange County. The following are some of the conditions we treat:
Anorexia nervosa. This disorder happens when individuals are overly conscious about their body weight and image. People with anorexia tend to avoid eating food to maintain their ideal body. This condition is rare, but it has the highest recorded mortality rate among all mental health disorders.
Binge eating. Although binge eating is rarely acknowledged as an eating disorder, it is the most prevalent eating disorder. Individuals diagnosed with the condition tend to overeat even when they’re full and only stop when it becomes uncomfortable.
Bulimia nervosa. This disorder is similar to binge eating, only that individuals suffering from it have extreme feelings of guilt. To compensate for the binge eating, they engage in excessive exercise or fasting or even use laxatives. Patients with this disorder can appear healthy, overweight, or underweight.
Anxiety is a normal human reaction to stressor factors. However, it becomes a disorder when individuals can’t manage their response to stressors. And the condition starts to worsen the more it is left untreated.
Common symptoms include a heightened heartbeat, extreme sweating, and difficulty breathing.
Different forms of anxiety include:
Separation anxiety. Patients with this disorder can’t stand being away from their parents, children, partners, siblings, or pets. This is mostly due to fear for the safety of people significant to them or fear of abandonment. It’s common in children and young adults, but it can also be found in adults.
Generalized anxiety disorder. This disorder is caused by fear and worry about mundane aspects of life. In many cases, the subject causing stress may vary each day.
Phobias. This disorder is diagnosed as an unhealthy fear of specific things, people, or situations. It can be an extreme fear of confined spaces, heights, or blood. Patients with this disorder have more extreme reactions than normal when exposed to their phobia factors.
Panic disorder. Individuals suffering from this disorder experience extreme bouts of fear triggered by a perceived threat. During a panic attack, the intense perception of fear may trigger physical reactions. As a result, victims may feel like they are drowning or dying.
It’s also the most extreme form of anxiety since victims are always in fear of when the next attack will strike.
This disorder is confused with mere feelings of sadness, but it’s more than that. Depression, also referred to as clinical depression, is an extreme feeling of sadness or hopelessness. These emotions stretch over long periods to a point where they inhibit normal functioning.
There are two main types:
Major depression is the extreme version, lasting at least two weeks with clear signs of inhibiting normal functioning.
Persistent depressive disorder/ dysthymia is a less extreme version. However, this disorder only lasts for at least two years.
Other types of depression which fall under these two categories include:
It’s a brain illness that causes hallucination, delusions, incoherent thought, and speech in its victims. This disorder has three main types of symptoms:
This disorder results from exposure to traumatic events like accidents, the death of someone significant, or combat.
Whenever individuals with the disorder are exposed to almost similar events or stressors, they may respond extremely.
Bipolar disorder is an illness where victims experience severe changes in emotions. At times they experience periods of mania followed by depressive episodes.
Types of bipolar include:
At Moment of Clarity, we understand that different disorders may manifest differently for everyone. We have five treatment options that extensively cover most disorders while ensuring comfort and convenience for our esteemed clients.
It is a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy that focuses on identifying harmful thoughts and behaviors. Clients will learn to replace these thoughts and behvaiors with better and constructive thoughts.
It’s used in the treatment of:
This program focuses on a one-on-one approach to treatment. Group therapy may not cut it for some people, and all reasons are valid. The patient receives treatment specifically tailored to their needs and condition in a private setting with individual psychotherapy.
Part of resolving certain disorders involves engaging in fun activities that individuals may not participate in on their own. When done under the supervision of our amazing staff, this breaks down negative behavior patterns and replaces them with positive ones.
Some disorders are best managed in a group setting. The community provides a safety net and constant reassurance that it’s all getting better. In primary therapy groups, individuals with similar issues are paired together. In these groups they learn how to effectively replace negative thoughts and emotions with positive and constructive ones.
Most trauma disorders rarely have a cure, and the best treatment is learning coping skills to manage the most extreme symptoms.
Our qualified and empathetic team is ready to help patients determine the cause of trauma. With evidence-based therapy, patients are taught the necessary coping skills to manage symptoms and reclaim their lives.
