What We Treat

At 449 Recovery, we provide comprehensive and personalized treatment for mental health disorders. Our approach combines evidence-based therapies and holistic practices. We also offer specialized treatment approaches for personality disorders, addressing the unique challenges they present. Additionally, our programs include therapies specifically designed for mood disorders, ensuring a well-rounded approach to mental health care.

Anxiety disorders are characterized by excessive fear, worry, and related behavioral disturbances. These disorders include generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and specific phobias. Individuals with anxiety disorders often experience intense, prolonged anxiety that interferes with their daily lives, causing physical symptoms such as rapid heartbeat, sweating, and fatigue. Treatment typically involves therapy, medication, or a combination of both to help manage symptoms and improve quality of life.

Depression is a mood disorder that causes persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of interest or pleasure in most activities. It can significantly impact one’s ability to function in daily life, affecting sleep, appetite, energy levels, and concentration. Depression may occur due to a variety of factors, including genetics, environmental stressors, and chemical imbalances in the brain. Effective depression treatment often includes a combination of psychotherapy, medication, and lifestyle changes. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is also an effective treatment for mood disorders, including depression.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) develops in some individuals after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event, such as an accident, natural disaster, or assault. Symptoms of PTSD include flashbacks, nightmares, severe anxiety, and uncontrollable thoughts about the event. These symptoms can be debilitating, affecting daily functioning and relationships. Treatment for PTSD typically involves trauma-focused therapies, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), along with medication when necessary.

Behavioral disorders encompass a range of conditions characterized by disruptive behaviors that impact social, academic, or occupational functioning. Examples include attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), and conduct disorder. Individuals with behavioral disorders may exhibit patterns of impulsivity, hyperactivity, defiance, and aggression. Treatment often involves behavioral therapies, parent training, and, in some cases, medication to help manage symptoms and improve overall functioning. Borderline personality disorder is also treated using evidence-based therapies (such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy, or DBT) to manage symptoms and help individuals build a life worth living.

Substance Use Disorders

Alcohol addiction, also known as alcoholism, is characterized by an inability to control drinking despite negative consequences. It can lead to serious health issues, including liver disease, heart problems, and cognitive impairments. Treatment often involves detoxification, therapy, and support groups.

Cocaine addiction results from the powerful stimulant effects of the drug, leading to intense cravings and compulsive use. It can cause severe cardiovascular and neurological damage. Effective treatment includes behavioral therapies and (in some cases) medications to manage withdrawal symptoms.

Meth addiction is marked by the compulsive use of methamphetamine, leading to severe physical and mental health issues. Long-term use can result in extreme weight loss, dental problems, and cognitive decline. Treatment typically involves comprehensive behavioral therapy and support.

Opioid addiction involves the misuse of prescription painkillers or illicit opioids like the highly addictive heroin, leading to physical dependence and overdose risk. It can cause respiratory issues, severe withdrawal symptoms, and increased mortality. Treatment often includes medication-assisted therapy (MAT) and counseling.

Prescription pill addiction occurs when individuals misuse medications such as benzodiazepines, stimulants, or painkillers to get high. This addiction can lead to tolerance, dependence, and significant health risks. Treatment generally involves tapering off the medication, therapy, and support groups.

Co-occurring Disorders

Co-occurring disorders, also known as dual diagnosis, refer to the simultaneous presence of a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder. Individuals with co-occurring disorders often experience more severe symptoms and complications, making treatment more complex. Effective management typically requires integrated treatment approaches that address both conditions simultaneously. Treating co-occurring disorders with evidence-based therapies, holistic approaches, trauma-focused therapy, and individualized treatment options is crucial for improving recovery chances and promoting long-term wellness.
