Do I Need Mental Health Treatment?
If you think you need mental health treatment, ILC has numerous programs for you to explore. Morning Star: A Residential based treatment program offering a clinically intense approach to treating mental health and co-occurring disorders. You will receive 25 hours of group therapy weekly utilizing the following therapeutic modalities:

Additionally, you will participate in 1 or more individual sessions weekly. Individual therapy approaches include the above as well as talk therapy, EMDR, Brainspotting, Comprehensive Resource Model, and Hypnotherapy for Trauma Resolution. You will also have access to onsite nursing and psychiatric care, as well as a licensed dietitian (if needed). Masters-level therapists facilitate all therapy groups and individual sessions.
Music Row Recovery: A residentially based treatment program offering a less clinically intense approach to treating mental health and co-occurring disorders than our Morning Star program. You will receive 12 hours of group therapy weekly utilizing the same therapeutic approaches our Morning Star clients receive. In addition to group therapy, you will participate in 1 individual session weekly with a master’s level therapist. Approaches to treatment will vary with the type of mental health diagnosis and your response to treatment. After a thorough psychiatric evaluation, you and your provider will discuss the best course of treatment which will include therapy, possibly medication and/or supplements,
Common Mental Health Disorders
Most common types of mental health disorders we see are:
- Clinical depression: The primary approach to treatment is usually talking therapy, medication, or a combination of the two. Increasingly, research suggests these treatments may normalize brain changes associated with depression. For treatment-resistant depression, our Psychiatrist may recommend Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) or Ketamine infusions. TMS is a noninvasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. TMS is typically used when other depression treatments haven’t been effective. Recently, ketamine has been shown to quickly and effectively reduce the symptoms of depression, where standard antidepressant medications can take several weeks before relieving symptoms. Amino acid supplements are also used to supplement the above courses of treatment.
- Anxiety disorder: Treatment includes counseling or medications, including antidepressants.
- Bipolar disorder: Treatment is usually lifelong and often involves a combination of medications and psychotherapy.
- Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder: Treatments include medication and talk therapy.
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder: Treatment includes talk therapy, medications, or both.
- Post-traumatic stress disorder: Treatment includes different types of trauma-focused psychotherapy such as EMDR, Brainspotting, Comprehensive Resource Model, experiential, and body-oriented therapies such as Yoga and breathwork, as well as medications to manage symptoms.
How Integrative Life Center Can Help
People with mental health disorders are more likely than people without mental health disorders to experience alcohol or substance use disorder. Co-occurring disorders can be difficult to diagnose due to the complexity of symptoms, as both may vary in severity. In many cases, people receive treatment for one disorder, while the other disorder remains untreated. (SAMHSA) The consequences of undiagnosed, untreated, or undertreated co-occurring disorders can lead to a higher likelihood of experiencing homelessness, incarceration, medical illnesses, suicide, or even early death.
At ILC, our staff is trained in mental health and addiction disorders. Therefore, they can address co-occurring mental health, substance use, and eating disorders. If you have a co-occurring disorder, we use comprehensive treatment to address mental and substance use disorders at the same time. Doing so often lowers costs and creates better outcomes. Early detection and treatment can improve treatment outcomes and the quality of life for those who need these services. Call us now at 615.455.3903 to speak to someone about our integrative treatment.
