Behavioral Health Q & A

What is behavioral health?

Behavioral health is an area of medicine focused on the connection between your behaviors and your overall health and well-being. 

Though often used interchangeably with mental health, behavioral health is more of an umbrella term that includes mental health, as well as substance abuse, management of life’s stressors, stress-induced physical symptoms, and habits that affect health, such as diet and exercise. 

The team at Alpha Care Medical takes an integrative approach to care and offers behavioral health services to address all of your health and wellness needs. 

Am I a good candidate for behavioral health?

Your provider at Alpha Care Medical determines if you’re a good candidate for behavioral health during a consultation. You may benefit from behavioral health if you’re struggling with:

  • A mental health condition such as depression or anxiety
  • Substance abuse
  • The management of your chronic health condition such as diabetes
  • Stress from your job or family
  • Relationship issues

The team may also consider you a good candidate for behavioral health if you’re going through a personal crisis that’s affecting your physical and emotional health, such as loss of a loved one or divorce. 

Alpha Care Medical also specializes in opioid addiction and can provide the care you need to help you recover from your addiction. 

What are behavioral health therapies?

The team at Alpha Care Medical utilizes many tools to help you achieve your health and wellness goals. The behavioral health therapies offered at the primary care practice include:

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy, helps you better understand your mental or emotional difficulties. During psychotherapy, your therapist at Alpha Care Medical helps you understand the source of your symptoms so you can gain control over them and heal. 

Your psychotherapy sessions may take place individually, in group counseling, or both. The type and frequency of your psychotherapy depend on the underlying need. Your provider at Alpha Care Medical determines the best treatment for you. 

Cognitive behavioral therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy is a structured form of psychotherapy aimed at changing your pattern of thinking. 

During your sessions, your therapist focuses on helping you identify your negative thought patterns and how they affect your behavior. Your therapist then works closely with you to help you change your negative thought patterns to improve mood, behavior, and health.
