Naturopathic psychiatry (AKA integrative psychiatry) incorporates counseling, nutrition, exercise/sports medicine, biofeedback, hydrotherapy/physical medicine, mindfulness, herbal medicine, nutraceuticals, pharmaceutical management, and genetic testing as needed to establish a client's baseline physical and mental health. At reSTART, services will include the coordination of care with health care providers and families, one-on-one in-house appointments, medical direction regarding food, exercise, and programming for residents, fielding client's medical questions, triage, referrals, assessments for emergent illness/injury, and more.
Dr. Samantha Desmond ND, LMHCA, MHA, EMT will be leading this incredible new change at ReSTART. Dr. Sam feels that “To help clients bring about real, profound, and lasting change in their lives means meeting the clients on all levels and across all realms. To provide the opportunity for clients to re-integrate their lives after they leave the program, any baseline physical causes must be addressed in conjunction with their psychological and spiritual concerns. A table needs at least three legs to stand, and human health really isn't that much different.”
By including naturopathic psychiatry into their treatment model, reSTART continues to be at the forefront of treating Internet and video game addiction. Using experiential, creative methods and out of the box thinking, reSTART focuses on what works for the whole person.
