THE CONDITIONS WE WORK WITH :

Generalized anxiety is a highly disruptive condition that causes the individual to feel overwhelmed by worry and irrational fears out of proportion to the actual issues at hand. Symptoms might include persistent thoughts of dread, restlessness, muscle tension, irritability, fatigue, and sleep disturbances. Clinicians at ROW Psychiatric Services will use cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness exercises, and medications to treat patients with anxiety disorder.
Depression is a serious mental health condition. It is often felt like an overall sense of deep sadness and helplessness. Severe depression can produce changes in eating and sleep habits, decreased energy level, social isolation, and thoughts of suicide. Depending on the duration, intensity and patient’s circumstances the types of depression vary, therefore treatment must be carefully selected. The knowledgeable practitioners of ROW Psychiatric Services will carefully determine the type of illness and together with each individual patient will select the best course of therapy. With our emphasis on the holistic approach, this course will include a complementary blend of psychotherapy, exercise, and medication.
Bipolar Disorder is characterized by extreme and intense mood swings that shift between depressed mood and a manic state with little or no warning. It can significantly impact an individual’s ability to function, negatively affect work and school performance and damage relationships. Practitioners at ROW Psychiatric Services utilize a combination of treatment options, including medication, life coaching, and psychotherapy to help provide relief from the symptoms of Bipolar Disorder and enhance mood stability.
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a type of anxiety disorder which develops in response to an experience of extremely traumatic events profoundly challenging the individual’s sense of safety. These events may be related to combat, sexual or physical abuse, loss of a loved one, a serious illness, or a car accident, for example. Symptoms include nightmares, flashbacks, hyper-vigilance, agitation, detachment, avoidance of situations that trigger memories of the event, and self-destructive behavior. The expert practitioners at ROW Psychiatric Services will use a combination of medication and psychotherapy to relieve PTSD symptoms and teach the patients valuable tools for coping with these feelings and memories.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) affects the increasing amount of children and adults in the U.S. This disorder can negatively impact a person’s ability to perform academically or in a working environment. Generally, the individuals which suffer from ADHD lack the ability to concentrate and the self-discipline adhering to a single task. Children with ADHD may exhibit disruptive behaviors in the classroom. By utilizing mindfulness awareness techniques, medications, psychotherapy, and occupational therapy, ROW Psychiatric Services practitioners are able to help alleviate the symptoms of ADHD and help improve performance at school and work.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is an anxiety disorder that is identified by an overwhelming and uncontrollable need to perform repetitive actions or routines, such as washing hands 50 times a day or turning the light switch on and off a dozen times when leaving a room. Utilizing a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy and medication, the knowledgeable practitioners of ROW Psychiatric Services can help provide relief of these life-disrupting symptoms. We will teach the patient how to recognize their obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors and the skills to manage them
Personality Disorder encompasses a range of mental health disorders that usually appear in adolescence or early adulthood. It is characterized by an abnormally rigid and unhealthy pattern of thinking and behavior. People who suffer from Personality Disorder tend to process inner thoughts and their environment in a distorting manner, causing difficulties in relationships, work or school environments. ROW Psychiatric Services expert practitioners will teach awareness techniques to help patients recognize these maladaptive traits and offer tools to help them better manage their emotions. And when needed, utilize medications to help reduce the mood and anxiety symptoms.
SEX, GAMBLING AND SHOPPING ADDICTIONS
Poor impulse control is at the center of many behavioral addictions such as sex, gambling, and compulsive shopping. Often the person struggling with a behavioral addiction is acting in response to underlying emotions that are painful or unpleasant, and the behaviors are an effort to avoid feeling these emotions. As with all addictions, an individual with a behavioral addiction may recognize that the behaviors are negatively impacting their life, but feels powerless to stop them. Experienced ROW Psychiatric Services clinicians will use cognitive behavioral therapy to identify the thoughts and emotions that trigger addictive behaviors and replace the compulsive responses with healthy alternatives. And when needed prescribe medication to help improve impulse control, as well as treat a possible co-occurring condition such as depression or anxiety.
SUBSTANCE ABUSE DISORDER AND ADDICTION
When we evaluate someone, we take into consideration many different variables. We don’t focus on the addiction alone—we also consider the social circumstances, support systems, and motivations for change. Through several different approaches and treatments, our addiction specialists help patients through the messy and difficult steps of recovery. Whether it’s a substance abuse issue or a gambling problem, we individualize our approach to target each individual’s addiction. ROW Psychiatric Services clinical experts can provide our patients with an individualized plan that combines these factors, and work with each individual in a judgment-free environment and treat them with compassion.
