Six Conditions for which Peak View Provides Treatment

Get help for substance use disorder,

If you look toward the top of the webpage you are visiting right now (that’s right: this very page), you will see a number of drop down menus—including one labeled “Conditions We Treat.” When you mouse over that menu, you will see six conditions for which you can get help at Peak View Behavioral Health. They include:

  • Substance use disorder
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Mental health

Let’s take a quick look at each of these six categories. In addition to details about each, we will provide links to additional blog entries that offer more information.

Substance Use Disorder

If you are struggling with drugs or alcohol, you may well have developed a substance use disorder. And that means you likely will not be able to give up the substances on your own due to the rigors of withdrawal. This is a common trap individuals fall into: they want to quit using drugs or alcohol because they are doing damage to their physical and mental well-being, but withdrawal symptoms—including intense cravings—make it all but impossible to accomplish. Peak View Behavioral Health offers medically supervised detoxification and a robust rehabilitation program that offers the strategies and support your need to stay sober over time.

In everyday language, folks are not always terribly precise when it comes to talking about depression. Many times, you hear “depression” used as a synonym for “sad.” But depression is more than the run-of-the-mill sadness we all experience from time to time. The mental health disorder known as depression actually has several variations—and each one requires treatment to address your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder (formerly known as manic depression) is among the various kinds of depression but presents unique challenges. People who are diagnosed with bipolar disorder often experience extreme highs during which they have seemingly endless energy and extreme lows when it is hard to do anything at all. Treatment can be very effective in addressing the symptoms of bipolar disorder, helping individuals find a more consistent level between the highs and the lows.

There are a lot of misconceptions in the world about schizophrenia. Here are the facts: a person suffering from schizophrenia may well have trouble telling the real from the imaginary—and so may appear to have lost touch with reality. This disconnect can make it very difficult for the person to effectively manage and express their emotions. Schizophrenia impacts important systems in the brain, which means it can change how a person thinks, feels, and acts.

Suicidal Thoughts

If you are experiencing suicidal thoughts, it is essential to get help right away—and that help is available by calling or texting 9-8-8. When the acute emergency is past, it is equally important that you seek out treatment that can address the way you are feeling. You might feel as though you are all alone and that the world would be better off without you—but neither of those things are true. What is true is that treatment can help.

Mental Health

Of course, many of the conditions we mention above are mental health disorders—and substance use disorders are frequently entangled with mental health disorders. But those disorders are far from the full range of mental health issues you might be dealing with. We are well equipped to address panic and anxiety disorders, disorders grounded in trauma like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and more.
