Mental Health Treatment

Our multi-disciplinary team uses comprehensive assessments to ensure proper diagnosis

Mental Health Programs

Nearly one in five U.S. adults live with a mental illness (52.9 million in 2020 NIMH). Estimates from the NIH suggest that only half of people with mental illnesses receive treatment. Mental Health Treatment addresses the symptoms of a mental health diagnosis (e.g., obsessive compulsive disorder, major depressive disorder, PTSD, panic disorders). Our multi-disciplinary team uses comprehensive assessments to ensure proper diagnosis and individualized treatment plans. Mental health residential treatment is focused on evaluation, stabilization, skill acquisition and smooth transition to long-term treatment management. Programs include:

• Residential Treatment
• Partial-Hospitalization Program
• Intensive Outpatient Program
• Group Therapy

Two out of ten individuals will develop a drug or alcohol dependence and/or a diagnosable mental illness in their lifetime. However, these chronic mental disorders affect everyone, either directly or indirectly, through interaction with family, community, and the workplace. The opioid epidemic, the aftereffects of a pandemic, and the wide reach of a mental health crisis make it clear, there is a need for proper assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. Sanford Behavioral Health is stand ready, with smart, financially responsible, and proactive programs to meet the challenge.

Co-occurring Disorders

More often than not (about 85% of the time at Sanford) addiction and eating disorders come with complicating factors such as depression, anxiety or trauma known as co-occurring disorders. In fact, up to 35% of those with a substance use disorder also have an eating disorder (NEDA). Co-occurring disorders can be difficult to diagnose because the presence of one disorder can interfere with diagnosis of the other. For example, a person seeking treatment for depression or anxiety may under-report or deny their alcohol use. Effective treatment of co-occurring disorders is diagnosis driven, hence conducting a comprehensive evaluation is crucial.

With complex or acute conditions, the most effective care integrates treatment for addiction and mental health. At Sanford, psychiatrists, psychologists, marriage and family therapists, and other mental health professionals work together. Services may include individual, group therapy and family therapy and all of our programs are backed by a full medical team.

Prevalence of Co-occurring Disorders

According to research conducted by the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, 29 percent of individuals with mental health disorders also struggle with substance use disorders. This is almost double the prevalence of SUD in the general population. The following co-occurring disorders are the most prevalent:

  • Eating disorders - Most studies show that between 15 and 32 percent of women with substance use disorders meet the diagnostic criteria for an eating disorder (e.g.,anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa) at some time in their lives.
  • Depression - As many as 80 percent of those with an alcohol use disorder experience depressive symptoms at some time in their lives. 30 percent meet diagnostic criteria for major depression.
  • PTSD - As many as one-third of patients entering addiction treatment meet the criteria for PTSD.
  • Anxiety disorders - Anxiety disorders (e.g., agoraphobia, panic disorder, social phobias, general anxiety disorder) are present in 10 to 60 percent of those with SUD.

How Much Does Treatment Cost?

The cost of mental health treatment is an expense most individuals have never planned or budgeted for, and there are many contributing factors. The question of treatment cost does not have a simple answer; insurance coverage, financial circumstances, and treatment programs are different for each person. Sanford works with most insurance companies to utilize the best possible coverage and benefits. 844.776.9651
