ABOUT BEHAVIORAL HEALTH

about-mh

Behavioral health refers to a person’s state of being and how their behaviors and choices affect their overall health and wellness.

A “Dual Diagnosis” is one where an individual has behavioral health issue plus substance abuse (addictions of all kinds).

The terms "behavioral health" and "mental health" are often used interchangeably.

Behavioral health includes not only ways of promoting well-being by preventing or intervening in mental illness such as depression or anxiety, but also has as an aim preventing or intervening in substance abuse or other addictions. (Psychology Today)

Behavioral health management is a method of promoting patient well-being by preventing or intervening where there are indications of mental illness such as depression or anxiety. Frequently, during this course of treatment, secondary maladies such as substance abuse or other addictions are uncovered which require additional treatment in order to achieve a complete and satisfactory patient outcome.

The Wave will deliver top-quality care at each facility and we will offer clients continued access to traditional medicine and whole-person (wholistic) healing. "Whole Person Healing" is our preferred term for describing what is commonly referred to as "complementary and alternative medicine." Unlike allopathic medicine, which seeks to eliminate the disease in the body, whole person healing focuses on promoting wellness and healing the body, mind and spirit, while taking care to create and sustain a healthy, happy personal environment.

At The Wave, this is more than merely an intention. We use a U. S. government recognized and trademarked treatment model and a therapeutic approach, along with care provided by highly experienced, credentialed medical, psychiatric, and therapeutic professionals to deliver results that have been measured to be up to four times (400%) more effective than traditional “Step” program results.
