When we face difficult and painful situations in our life, and we are not destroyed by our fears, or sadness, we eventually discover that there is hope. We discover that we can survive. In time we discover that our pain will fade. Facing emotional pain is the healthiest response. This does not mean we should make our self-miserable. When people suffer, it is important to help them feel less alone in the world. It is important to help people in crisis solve the problems in their life. People in emotional pain need to be empowered and supported. We are committed to working to providing the most beneficial and comprehensive services.

Anxiety and or Depression

Anxiety/Depression is affected by stress in our bodies and minds reacting to something, which upsets our normal balance in life. During the course of our lives, we all experience episodes of anxiety, unhappiness, sadness, or grief. Many times when a loved one dies or a personal tragedy occurs, or difficulty such as divorce or loss of a job, we may feel depressed and anxious. Clinical depression affects about 19 million Americans annually. It is estimated to contribute to half of all suicides. Anxiety interferes with the sufferer’s ability to sleep or function. These conditions should be addressed. Our mental-health professionals can help; treatment would depend on the cause of the anxiety or depression. Our clinicians employ a wide variety of treatment modalities such as psychotherapy, cognitive therapy, and behavioral therapy, among others.

Stress

Stress is part of life and will always be around. Acute stress is the most common form of stress. Many circumstances can lead to stress, such as: pressure to perform at work, at school or in sports. Since a range of commonplace situations can cause it, everyone is as risk of being stressed. Chronic stress however is more serious it kills through suicide, violence, heart attack, stroke other illness and perhaps even cancer. Due to physical and mental resources being depleted through long-term attribution, the symptoms of chronic stress are difficult to treat and may require medical as well as behavioral treatment and stress management. Seek and Find is equipped to work effectively with this type of situation.

Substance Abuse Assessments

Addiction is a serious illness. It can negatively affect one’s physical health, financial security, interpersonal relationships and career. Alcohol and drug abuse are the foremost causes of preventable illnesses and premature death. Fortunately there are many effective treatments available, however since this is a disease of denial, admission is often slow in coming and the abuser is often the last to realize that the problem has become serious. Our clinical staff includes licensed therapists who are fully qualified to conduct addiction assessments and treatments. You are not alone, we can help.

Domestic Violence

Physical violence is the main content of domestic violence and can be accompanied by other forms of violence, which could include emotional and psychological abuse, sexual abuse, child abuse, and economic abuse.

No one has the right to hurt you, even if that person is a spouse, child, boyfriend or girlfriend, parent or partner. Domestic violence can be used as a form of control and manipulation over the individual by the abuser.
