Mission and Philosophy
Our straight-forward mission is to facilitate the healing our clients deserve, with the greatest comfort and respect, from the most experienced and supportive team of treatment experts.
Our Program Philosophy
We believe that everyone should be the very best version of her or himself. And we believe that those who suffer from mental illness can become their best selves through expert treatment from passionate, caring professionals in a highly comfortable healing environment.
Our Philosophy on Psychiatric Medications
While there is considerable controversy surrounding psychiatric medications, our experience and outcomes indicate that medication can be a vital component of successful treatment for mental illness. That being said, many clients arrive at our Mental Health Center with multiple, compounding, and even contra-indicated prescribed medications that can actually create more problems than they relieve. Therefore, it is imperative that we evaluate and manage every client’s prescriptions. This often involves removing medications that are excessive, inappropriate or ineffective. After we obtain a clear understanding of the client’s needs, we may prescribe superior medications in the proper dosages. Once medication management is successfully accomplished, the client invariably functions at a considerably higher level. This enables her or him to focus on other effective treatment options like psycho-therapy, education, and lifestyle modifications. These factors can be as effective as medication, and can often remove the need for prescriptions.
Our Philosophy on Treatment Modalities
At Solara Mental Health we provide a broad spectrum of therapeutic treatment modalities including traditional, second- and third-wave Cognitive Behavioral Therapies like Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and mindfulness-based stress reduction. We also provide Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) as well as others cutting edge treatments.
Our Mental Health Facility complements these first-line evidence-based treatments with psychodynamic therapy, educational therapy, and sensory-motor therapy.
We also utilize creative therapies, like drumming, music, drawing, painting, knitting, and more. Our physical and body therapies include yoga, meditation, and mindfulness which we combine with exercise and nutrition. Solara believes that providing clients a breadth of therapeutic options and activities allows them to respond and progress with the therapies that ‘speak’ to them. This allows us to promote maximum healing and wellness and introduce patients to resources that they can continue to develop over time.
