Treatment and Recovery
It is important to know that treatment is available and treatment leads to people being able to live full, productive lives. With treatment, people diagnosed with mental health issues and addiction issues are able to work, contribute to their communities, can be loving parents and good friends and neighbors. Mental health issues are no different than physical health issues.
Open Minds Open Doors encourages people to contact a medical professional (resources) to begin their journey to health. This might include your regular physician or counselor. Or, it might mean contacting an organization in Clackamas County that deals with mental health issues (resources).
After diagnosis, a treatment plan might include:
- Medication for depression, schizophrenia, bi-polar and anxiety
- Support groups
- Counseling and addictions treatment linked together
