Treatment for Behavioral Problems in Sacramento County

Behavioral disorders are mental health disorders that cause a pattern of unhealthy, disruptive or problematic behaviors. Although they range in severity, behavioral problems can greatly affect a person’s ability to navigate daily life and get along with others. Mental health disorders capable of causing behavioral problems include obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

If behavioral problems are negatively impacting your ability to maintain relationships and live a balanced life, it’s important to seek professional help. At Advanced Psychiatry Associates, we provide comprehensive treatment for behavioral problems in adults and teenagers over 14.

Who Can Benefit From Treatment for Behavioral Disorders?

Treatment for behavior problems has the potential to benefit people with both severe and mild behavioral concerns. Treatment methods are designed to support people whose behavioral problems stem from many different mental health disorders and environmental conditions, so anyone who has a pattern of behavior problems can see positive change during and after treatment.

Almost everyone makes mistakes and acts in difficult or inappropriate ways occasionally. This can make it difficult to tell whether behavioral problems have a deeper root cause. If you think you or someone you care about might have a behavioral disorder, one of the knowledgeable professionals at Advanced Psychiatry Associates can evaluate the situation and offer a diagnosis.

In the meantime, here are a few signs that you may benefit from treatment:

  • Your behavior makes it difficult to function in school, in the workplace or around others
  • You have thoughts of harming yourself or others or a pattern of doing so
  • You have developed problems with substance abuse
  • You feel isolated from others and withdrawn from your social groups
  • You act impulsively and struggle to control your behavior, even if you know it’s harmful

Our Methods of Treatment for Behavior Problems

No one should have to struggle with behavioral problems and their effects alone. At Advanced Psychiatry Associates, we provide a variety of treatment options for individuals with behavioral disorders.

Once we have determined a diagnosis for your behavioral problems, we will recommend treatment strategies tailored to your needs. These can include medication and psychotherapy. Medication helps manage the condition’s underlying behavioral problems, while counseling aims to help patients cope with symptoms and gain more control over their behavior.

The counselors and therapists at Advanced Psychiatry Associates use diverse types of psychotherapy to treat behavior problems. Whether your therapist uses cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) or another type of talk therapy, they will work hard to create a safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment.
