What Is Behavioral Healthcare?
Behavioral healthcare is a whole-person approach to helping addicted individuals and their families become and stay healthy. At Mindful Urgent Care, we seek out the root causes of alcohol and drug problems and provide tools for sustained recovery and healthy living. In carrying out this work, we evaluate, using the American Society of Addiction Medicine’s criteria, we carefully and continually assess patients using six dimensions:
Past and current experiences of substance abuse and withdrawal
Health history and current physical conditions
Thoughts, emotions and mental health issues
Readiness and interest in changing
Relationship with relapses or continued use or problems
Recovery or living situation, and the surrounding people, places and things
