Behavioral & Mental Health

Behavioral and Mental Health

Behavioral and mental health concerns can affect more than a person’s brain, which is why the St. Luke Community Healthcare team has a whole-body approach to care. A person’s mental health is intimately tied to their physical health. St. Luke’s care team coordinates and communicates to address the entirety of the patient’s health care needs. A patient’s care team includes a primary care provider, nurse, licensed clinical social worker, and care navigation professionals all working together to ensure patients get the best possible care.

Behavioral health includes more than anxiety and depression. It can include helping patients with:

  • Addiction Counseling
  • Behavior Change
  • Diabetes management
  • Smoking Cessation
  • Medication-Assisted Therapy
  • Behavioral Health for pregnant moms
  • Treatments for Substance Use Disorders

Treatments for Substance Use Disorders

Integrating substance use disorder (SUD) services with primary care can improve access to SUD services for the 20.9 million Americans who need SUD treatment but do not receive it, and help prevent the onset of SUD among the 68 million Americans who use psychoactive substances in a risky manner. St. Luke offers several treatment and service options that are effective in helping people with substance use disorders. The treatment system for substance use disorders is comprised of multiple service components, including the following:

  • Individual counseling
  • Case or care management
  • Medication
  • Recovery support services
  • We offer referrals for:
  • Group counseling
  • Inpatient and Residential Treatment

Individual and Group Counseling

Counseling can be provided at the individual or group level. Individual counseling often focuses on reducing or stopping substance use, skill-building, adherence to a recovery plan, and social, family, and professional/educational outcomes. Group counseling is often used in addition to individual counseling to provide social reinforcement for the pursuit of recovery.

Counselors provide a variety of services to people in treatment for substance use disorders including assessment, treatment planning, and counseling. These professionals provide a variety of therapies. Some common therapies include:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy teaches individuals in treatment to recognize and stop negative patterns of thinking and behavior. For instance, cognitive-behavioral therapy might help a person be aware of the stressors, situations, and feelings that lead to substance use so that the person can avoid them or act differently when they occur.
  • Contingency management is designed to provide incentives to reinforce positive behaviors, such as remaining abstinent from substance use.
  • Motivational enhancement therapy helps people with substance use disorders to build motivation and commit to specific plans to engage in treatment and seek recovery. It is often used early in the process to engage people in treatment.
  • 12-step facilitation therapy seeks to guide and support engagement in 12-step programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.
