Wellness vs. Illness

Treating the Whole Patient 

When our patients embark on their road to recovery, we want them to know that we will be there with them throughout the entire journey. Whether seeking more information for yourself or a loved one, we commend you for pursuing help, and we want to emphasize the importance of taking this first essential step. 

While we help patients overcome what current emergencies they may have, we also strive to help them grow to a place where they can prevent a similar situation from arising in the future, be it for adolescents, adults or geriatrics

More than 25 percent of all people will experience varying degrees of mental and emotional health struggles at some point in their lives. Know that you are not alone, and that it is very common to seek help for these issues. We are here to maintain your health, and believe that this requires both an emotional and medical approach to your wellness. 

Our Approach to Care 

Behavioral health services at The Medical Center of Aurora help patients get back on the path to wellness with the help of people who understand. We view every experience as an opportunity to grow, and center our approach on using personal strength to overcome life’s challenges. 

Our behavioral health treatment programs empower patients by helping them develop coping mechanisms designed to improve their daily life skills. Our diverse team of specialists crafts evidence-based, dialectical behavioral therapy programs specifically tailored to fit yours or a loved one’s unique needs; and we work tirelessly to ensure every patient leaves our clinic with the tools and techniques necessary to tackle life. 

We begin by building a community of support around you as soon as you enter our care. Our team of doctors, nurses, social workers, therapists, and mental health counselors will work with your support system of family and friends to make sure you have a community supporting you on your recovery journey. 

Our Clinical Services 

Accompanying this approach are our clinical services and mental health resources. Behavioral health treatment options include group, recreational and occupational therapy, family conferences, counseling, medication education, and psychiatric evaluations. 

We believe in the continuity of care, and will continue to extend our services to patients even after they leave our facilities. Whichever treatment options you or a loved one chooses to pursue, we provide support throughout the entire process.
