A Blast from the Past
If you happen to be a lover of music from bygone eras, you may be familiar with a couple of songs that have a somewhat unusual approach to their subjects. These songs involve more spelling than we usually expect in popular songs.
Take, for example, “M-O-T-H-E-R (A Word That Means the World to Me).” The first chorus goes like this:
“M” is for the million things she gave me
“O” means only that she’s growing old
“T” is for the tears were shed to save me
“H” is for her heart of purest gold
“E” is for her eyes, with lovelight shining
“R” means right, and right she’ll always be
Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER”
A word that means the world to me
“L-O-V-E” is another example of this style of song:
L is for the way you look at me
O is for the only one I see
V is very, very extraordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore can
We bring these songs up not (just) because we have old-timey taste, but because they are representative of a good way to remember important concepts. And while we have not set this blog to music (yet), we are going to look at Peak View Recovery Center’s services and values by using the letters P-E-A-K.
P Is for Personalized Care
Every person who needs treatment for a mental health or substance use disorder (or both) is an individual, and so there are no cookie-cutter solutions to anyone’s difficulties. We always keep this in mind at Peak View.
We are committed to learning about you as an individual—your history, your current difficulties, your goals—and then to designing a treatment program that is specifically for you. This sort of personalized care is a core part of our services, and it means that you can count on being treated with respect and getting the attention you need and deserve.
E Is for Evidence, Expertise, and Experience
The letter E is doing triple duty for us because evidence, expertise, and experience are essential aspects of our approach. We are committed to an evidence-based approach to treatment, which means we stay on top of the research and advances in our field. And we have both expertise—that is, we have significant amounts of advanced training—and the experience—that is, years of working to improve the lives we touch—necessary to provide you with topnotch care.
A Is for Admissions
When you or a loved one is seeking treatment for a mental health or substance use disorder, you are likely to have a lot of questions. At Peak View Behavioral Health, we are committed to answering those questions during our admissions process.
Our trained admissions team is always available to provide assistance and guidance to those seeking treatment and to members of their family. And when we say “always available,” we really mean it. You can contact a member of our team 24 hours a day. The team is ready and able to explain the treatment options we offer and can schedule a free comprehensive assessment (another good A word) so that we can learn more about you and your needs.
K Is for Key
A mental health or substance use disorder can feel like a puzzle with no solution. Happily, however, you can think of treatment as the key that unlocks the puzzle. And when you seek treatment at Peak View Behavioral Health, that key unlocks all of the things we have talked about above, including personalized care grounded in evidence, expertise, and experience and explained clearly by our admissions team. It also unlocks our commitment to a continuum of care (listen to all those K-sounding Cs!). We will provide the resources, strategies, and follow up support necessary to maintain the gains you have made in treatment.
We Hope We Have Piqued Your Interest
Okay, we admit that is a terrible pun. Nevertheless, we hope it is true that our little spelling adventure has encouraged you to consider Peak View Behavioral Health if you (or someone you love) need(s) help with mental health and/or substance use issues. We provide services for children, adults, and seniors and offer both inpatient and outpatient services. And because we understand that mental health and substance use disorders affect more than just the individual in question, we offer educational programming to help families help their loved ones.
