Mental Health Treatment

Mental Health Rehab in Minneapolis

Recent discoveries about the workings of the brain have shed new light on the role a natural chemicals play in manufacturing normal thought patterns, feelings, self-awareness, and perceptions. At Health Recovery Center, we work to treat the underlying chemical imbalances in the brain for the following mental health disorders:

Clinical depression is more than sadness; it requires medical care. Orthomolecular treatment is a great place to start.

Violent Behavior

Though it’s distressing for both witnesses and victims, violent behavior is treatable with our orthomolecular approach.

The human mind reflects the brain’s chemical balance. Yet, it remains common practice in mental health facilities to use drugs and change this balance to solve symptoms, without pursuing what went biochemically wrong. Since the 1960s, a new breed of medical scientists have challenged the traditional approach to treating mental disorders.

Nobel Prize laureate Dr. Linus Pauling has named this new theory “orthomolecular medicine,” which he defines as “establishing the right molecules in the body/brain by varying the concentrations of substances normally present and required for optimum health.” This type of scientific testing and repair follows the “blueprint of life,” and has thus resulted in many successful permanent mental health recoveries.

Health Recovery Center’s Approach to Mental Health

Most mental health treatment centers prescribe psychiatric drugs and therapy for mental health issues. While these methods treat the symptoms of mental health issues, they do not address the underlying cause. Health Recovery Center has a different approach to treating mental health disorders. We address problems at the physical and molecular level. We work to repair the root issue instead of treating the symptoms and masking the cause.

The focus of Health Recovery Center’s mental health treatment program is similar to the biomedical/nutritional work described in “Seven Weeks to Sobriety” and “Depression Free, Naturally” by Joan Mathews-Larson, Ph.D. Under the direction of our medical physician and staff, our mental health treatment center offers the following:

  • Initial pre-screening to determine your symptoms
  • Medical examination to determine any physical illnesses that may be exacerbating or causing your mental upset
  • Lab tests to identify biochemical (brain chemistry) errors that cause your mental illness
  • Medical and nutritional consultation to address the specific biochemical repair needed

The Health Recovery Center treatment approach is compatible with any current psychiatric drug efforts a patient might be receiving.

What is the Length of the Program?

HRC’s treatment program cover an intensive six weeks (36 days). Repairing the brain and establishing biochemical balance makes for a long list of things to do in this short amount of time; you will find that the six weeks flies by.

Complications, such as weaning off psychiatric drugs, may require additional time within the program to stabilize some clients. These matters are determined on an individual basis after you check in.

Is the HRC program for Substance Use Disorders Inpatient or Outpatient?

Health Recovery Center is an intensive outpatient treatment center licensed by the State of Minnesota. This means that clients are not confined to our facility, nor do we supply meals. What we do provide is a biomedical treatment program combined with therapy to help clients rebuild their health and regain control of their life.

Does Health Recovery Center treat mental health problems not associated with addictions?

Yes, HRC successfully treats many clients with anxiety disorders, clinical depression, and schizophrenic symptoms. However, our 6-week recovery program is exclusively for clients with substance abuse problems.

Should Someone Stay with a Client When They Go Through the Program?

This answer is determined on an individual basis. Because some of our clients are very sick, they often require assistance to effectively progress through our program. Regardless, the support of friends or loved ones is always beneficial to a difficult healing process.

Thank you for your kindness, wisdom, and guidance for J. Especially for the extra effort, it appears to be working as he is sleeping better. He even said he had clarity this morning.
