Many people find themselves dependent on prescription medications as a result of surgery, chronic pain, or from a protocol to treat behavioral health conditions. Fifth Avenue Psychiatry can help you taper off prescribed medications safely, while assessing your current needs offering therapies that will assist in achieving a more holistic-based balance whenever possible.
There are physiological, chemical and emotional aspects of depressive disorders than affect a person’s ability to function day-to-day and enjoy life. Depression will unsettle the family dynamic and, left untreated, can lead to suicidal thoughts and self-harm. No one has to live like this as there are many methodologies that can treat these conditions successfully.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Military and our first responders are familiar with post-traumatic stress disorders, also known as PTSD, though this isn’t exclusive to our service members. It can happen after exposure to a single traumatic event or a multitude of them during a time in one’s past. Those who suffer with PTSD are left with debilitating triggers, conscious and subconscious, affecting physiological and emotional livelihood. Through EMDR, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapies and others, we can provide relief.
With the increase in our exposure to daily stress, whether actual or perceived, anxiety disorders diagnoses continue to escalate. They can develop for different reasons and manifest without warning. As a result, panic attacks, social anxiety, PTSD, phobias and obsessive-compulsive behaviors can be paralyzing to a person’s function. Fifth Avenue Psychiatry medical practitioners can offer specific treatments to ease the symptoms of anxiety disorders and minimize the effects of stress.
There’s a point in drug and alcohol addiction that often meets mental health disorders, known as dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorders. While some patients use drugs or alcohol to mask the symptoms of existing mental illness, others with addictive behaviors will develop anxiety, bipolar or depressive conditions. These co-occurring disorders will continue to escalate if not addressed. We can identify the root cause and treat each condition singularly, while providing a collective solution.
Hormonal and social changes can weigh heavy on the emotional stability of young people, from adolescence through their mid-twenties. Often, personal sensitivities and parental intervention can hide mental health issues and addictive behaviors, until it becomes more obvious in college or while in the workforce. Fifth Avenue Psychiatry can help identify stressors during the emerging adulthood process to facilitate constructive therapies, healthy decision making, and positive life experiences.
