Behavioral Health Programs
Cornerstone Behavioral Health El Dorado knows that achieving your best mental health doesn’t happen overnight or in isolation. Learn more about the various programs offered to support you on your path to wellness.
The purpose of group therapy is to focus on the issues that brought the patient into treatment. The group dynamic enables each patient to verbalize and share feelings and identify those issues that contribute to their current condition.
Group therapy allows patients to receive feedback and support from their peers, provides an opportunity for patients to learn from others who have similar problems, and instills hope by observing the improvement of others. The group helps patients examine ways other adults in similar circumstances manage their situations. It provides the opportunity to develop alternative coping behaviors and general skills to use in dealing with various aging issues.
While we prescribe group therapy for almost all of our patients, it’s not uncommon for some to find it difficult to express certain feelings or share painful experiences with others. Individual sessions allow patients the opportunity to explore issues in greater depth with a therapist, as well as review individualized goals for treatment.
We realize that problems do not occur in isolation. Mental illnesses and substance use issues affect the whole family. Family therapy is offered to assist patients and their loved ones in dealing with difficult matters and relationships.
Family therapy provides for new learning, ventilation, and expression of feelings and promotes mutual problem-solving. With the communication and coping tools we provide, understanding can be enhanced to help everyone work toward common goals.
Education is an integral part of the treatment program to help promote and maintain the patient’s health and ensure improvement and positive outcomes.
Education takes place in individual and group sessions and is based on the assessment of individual and family needs. Education is required as part of the interdisciplinary treatment plan.
