Frequently Asked Questions

North Atlanta Behavioral Health provides quality outpatient mental health treatment for people with mental health and dual diagnosis disorders. We know you have questions and have provided the answers below in our FAQ section. 

A mental health disorder is a diagnosable illness that impacts a person’s emotions, thinking, and behaviors. It can limit an individual’s personal relationships and their ability to do well at work and in fully enjoying life. Someone with a mental illness requires professional treatment from mental health experts to improve their symptoms. 

Multiple types of therapy can be used to help treat mental illness. This includes both talk and experiential therapies. For many people, prescription medications also help improve their conditions. 

The symptoms of poor mental health vary depending on the specific illness. Mental illness will cause a person to experience symptoms that may include depression, anxiety, an inability to control their moods, difficulty concentrating, discord in relationships, and a feeling of being unable to control how they feel and act. An assessment can be done by a physician or therapist to determine if a plan for mental health treatment proves necessary.

Your treatment is kept confidential, and no one in your circle of family, friends, or co-workers needs to know about your situation.

Let the person know you are available to talk to about their situation. Speak to them in a non-judgmental tone and let them know millions of people struggle with mental illness and can get help. Ask if you can help them find treatment and provide assistance such as driving them to appointments or enlisting loved ones to help them.

Some mental illnesses are curable, and we work hard to help each person in this situation overcome them. Other mental illnesses are not curable, but with proper treatment, the symptoms can be minimized and the individual can enjoy greater control over their lives.

It depends on a few factors. How long a person has been ill, the severity of their condition, and how well they respond to treatment come into play. A minimum of 30 days in either residential or outpatient care is recommended. The longer a person stays in treatment, the more progress they make.

If you’ve tried many things to help a mental health disorder, it’s important to be open to a range of approaches and committed to finding the right help. Different things help different people, which is why we offer a range of evidence-based approaches and services proven to help
