Mental Illness and Behavioral Health for aging adults 50+
Aging adults often experience major life changes such as: grief from the loss of a loved one, chronic illness, divorce, a forced move or a reduction of independence. These scenarios can trigger anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation even addiction.
We Provide Full Comprehensive Care
At Sana Behavioral Health, our patients are guided through a comprehensive wellness recovery plan during their inpatient care. We provide a Board-Certified Psychiatrist who specializes in geriatric treatment with medication management therapy. Our medical team also includes a Board Certified Geriatric Internal Medicine Physician to support both physical and emotional concerns of the aging patient. All our patients are personally assigned their own social worker and case manager to help with healing for a full recovery.
Addiction, Detox and Recovery
At Sana Behavioral Health, our clinicians are uniquely qualified to treat co-occurring mental health disorders and addiction for 50+ years of age and older. Prescription medication misuse is the most common substance related problem among older adults, with alcohol running a close second.
Addictions can be considered physical or psychological. Both types of addictions affect the part of the brain that produces endorphins, or pleasure inducing substances. These chemicals make the person feel "high" or euphoric when indulging in their addiction.
Before the emotional work of recovery can begin, individuals must free their bodies of drugs and alcohol. Detoxification protocols are adjusted for the special needs of the aging adult. Our medical staff provides our patients with a gentle, and closely monitored, inpatient detoxification. Patients will receive 24/7 access to clinical care, as well as medications that ease the experience of detox.
The next step in patient care, after the monitored detoxification, is to begin trauma informed, evidence-based therapies that include individual, group and family group therapy. Our therapists focus on helping patients develop the necessary coping skills to handle triggers, stress-management and self-regulation to help prevent a relapse. Upon discharge, Sana Behavioral Health provides follow-up care, wrap around services and resources to help the patient’s recovery process.
