BEHAVIORAL CARE SERVICES

Why Outpatient Counseling?

Outpatient therapy works for managing family conflict, depression, anxiety, marital problems or the stresses of parenting children. Therapy helps couples solve disagreements about in-laws, money, intimacy, marital affairs and balancing household responsibilities.

Other reason to seek a professional perspective include divorce, getting married, coping with unemployment, sexual problems, job dissatisfaction, loss of a loved one and to find help for controlling panic attacks.

Our team of professionals is dedicated to helping each individual identify, adapt and effectively deal with difficult times. We can help you not only get back on track, but to improve the quality of your life.

If you or a loved one are facing difficulties, Behavioral Care services located in Chelan and Wenatchee, can help. We want to provide you with the treatment least disruptive to your life.

Co-Occurring Conditions
What is a co-occurring condition? When a person is affected by both emotional or psychiatric illness and chemical dependency, he/she is suffering from co-occurring conditions. Psychiatric illness and chemical dependency affect an individual physically, psychologically, socially, and spiritually. Although the two conditions are separate and independent, they interact in ways that make diagnosis, treatment and recovery more complex.

For Adolescents
Adolescents needing professional intervention usually show signs which may include:

  • School disruption or fights
  • Change in grades
  • Sexually inappropriate behavior
  • Exceptional shyness
  • Impulsive behavior
  • Change in friends or has no friends
  • Alcohol and drug use
  • Eating or sleep disorders
  • Runs away
  • Defiant
  • Uncontrolled anger
  • Excessive arguing about rules/curfew
  • Self-harm or hurts others, animals or property

For the Elderly
At a time of life that could be tranquil and worry-free, an increasing number of retired and elderly people are being referred for mental health consultation. Outpatient counseling can benefit older adults experiencing losess that have become overwhelming. Depression, financial worries, chronic family problems, loss of friend and family members and unexplained physical pain all take their toll.
