Family therapy sessions benefit both the patient and the family members as they share how the loved one’s mental health disorder has impacted the family, and strive to improve interaction and communication through therapy. Families are taught conflict resolution techniques, healthy boundary setting, and how to avoid enabling or codependent behaviors.

In many cases, medications is prescribed to help manage and mitigate the symptoms of the mental health disorder, such as antidepressants, anti-anxiety drugs, anti-psychotic drugs, and mood stabilizers. During a residential stay, medications can be monitored and tweaked accordingly.

To further augment the effects of the traditional therapies, experiential activities such as mindfulness meditation, yoga classes, art and music therapy, and deep-breathing techniques, are included in the treatment plan. These types of holistic methods work on healing the mind-body connection through relaxation, emotion regulation, and stress reduction skills.
