The Ridge Can Help WIth Mental Health
Addiction is a complex disorder and its treatment requires the attention and expertise of a diverse team, made up of physicians, nurses, and counselors. Each staff member brings knowledge and experience in various aspects of recovery, and together, can help clients achieve lasting recovery. At The Ridge, psychiatrists are part of our expert treatment team, allowing us to work with clients with more complicated diagnoses like co-occurring disorders. Though we are not a co-occurring disorder facility (substance use disorder must be primary) we can help with minor mental health using our team of psychiatrists and therapists. Our psychiatrist and treatment team will determine the appropriate treatment of any mental health at The Ridge, or make a referral to a different facility or level of care if necessary.
Nutrition is an addiction recovery tool, as patients suffering from drug and alcohol abuse typically do not maintain balanced diets. With our recovery diet plan, we focus on providing balanced meals that will give the patient energy, and make him or her feel and look better – two critical aspects that collaboratively work to psychologically and physiologically aid the patient in overcoming addiction, and future cravings.
