Mental Health

Upon beginning the OHC day program, each client works with our Clinical Director and Case Manager to identify the root causes of an individual’s challenges.  Through our assessment process, our experts design a program to confront each individual’s challenges and recommend modalities and activities to heal and recover. The key areas the Olympus Healing Center’s professionals work with:

ADD/ADHD

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is a brain disorder. Inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity are some of the key behaviors of ADHD. The causes of ADHD are still being researched however several factors can contribute to ADHD such as brain injuries, genetics, substance abuse, pregnant women being exposed to toxins, and many more. There is no cure to ADHD however it can be managed.

Anger Management

Anger can be a motivator and helpful emotion to cope with stress. It can stem from other emotions such as humiliation, hurt, rejection or fear. However, when anger overpowers an individual and becomes uncontrolled it can affect your personal relationships, occupation, and overall quality of life. Uncontrolled anger can be caused by  genetics or psychological disruptions. To reduce emotional feelings and psychological arousal Anger management can be a helpful tool. It’s used to help understand what triggers individuals and how to control reactions to live a more fulfilling and balanced life.

Anxiety/OCD

Anxiety commonly understood to be a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome; the fear of the future and an unknown outcome. This is more commonly referred to as situational anxiety, where the activating event is identified and proximal.  When it begins to become a disorder or potentially a diagnosis-able condition is when the individual has overwhelming symptoms, similar to those stated above, and there is no clear identifiable activating event and/or the individual has lost the capacity to manage all the moving parts of their life.

They lose interest in activities and experience depressed moods for long periods of time, becoming discouraged. Causes of depression include substance abuse, life stressors, or genetic influences.

Emotional Dysregulation

However, with some persons, particularly those with a history of psychological trauma, there are multiple triggers; additionally, the periods of dysregulation may be prolonged, causing major disruptions in relationships and daily functioning. Emotional dysregulation can also lead to or be associated with depression and anxiety.

PTSD
