About Our Programming
Adams Medical Group Behavioral Health offers a range of mental health and addiction services to the community, including individual, family and couples therapy for individuals ages five and older. Our team consists of licensed providers with graduate degrees, a case manager, administrative staff, psychiatric nurse practitioners and a registered nurse. We offer therapy by licensed therapists, crisis intervention, referral information and medication services.
Behavioral health works with individuals to address their specific needs. A few benefits of engaging in services include enhancing an individual’s ability to cope with anxiety, depression, substance use disorders, life changes, stress and illness. Individuals can also improve their ability to make productive life choices. Individuals work with their providers to choose the frequency of appointments and ensure a treatment plan that meets their needs. Convenient hours allow freedom and flexibility to meet difficult schedules. Therapy sessions are approximately 45 minutes in length.
We work closely and provide treatment within different programs in the community such as school systems and criminal justice settings. We are also involved in ancillary services that impact mental health, such as the Diabetes Support Group and Education Team as well as the Alzheimer’s support group. At challenging times, we’ve led grief support groups for the community. We are passionate about helping our community and look for opportunities to make a difference.
Treatments We Provide
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a short-term form of behavioral treatment. It helps people problem solve. CBT also reveals the relationship between beliefs, thoughts and feelings and the behaviors that follow. Through CBT, people learn that their perceptions directly influence how they respond to specific situations. In other words, a person’s thought process informs their behaviors and actions.
Play therapy can help individuals communicate, explore repressed thoughts and emotions, address unresolved trauma and experience personal growth. Play therapy is widely viewed as an important, effective, and developmentally appropriate mental health treatment.
Trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) is an evidence-based treatment model designed to assist children, adolescents and their families with overcoming the negative effects of a traumatic experience.
Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT) is a short-term, gentle, respectful, holistic and compassionate treatment that works without subjecting individuals to needless pain and possible re-traumatization; because of this, sessions don’t tend to be as emotionally draining. RRT can be applied to treat a wide range of struggles. RRT is a trauma-informed approach that targets the limbic brain, where emotional responses are activated. Unlike traditional cognitive therapy, which only targets the cognitive functioning of the brain, RRT instead addresses the emotional brain and limbic system. Individuals can reprocess and reorganize traumatic events or overwhelming interfering emotions without having to fully relive the experience. RRT uses concepts from evidence-based treatment. Though not traditional therapy, RRT is effective for many individuals.
Motivational interviewing is a collaborative, goal-oriented style of communication with particular attention to the language of change. It is designed to strengthen personal motivation and commitment to a specific goal by eliciting and exploring the person’s own reasons for change within an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion.
