Our job at Redefine Healthcare is not limited to relieving physical pain. We are a multidisciplinary practice, aiming to improve both your physical and mental health. Our compassionate and supportive team.
Mental health encompasses our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It is linked to our overall health, affecting our thoughts and behavior, specifically how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood through adulthood. Managing depression and other mental health conditions is just as important as managing chronic medical conditions diabetes or heart disease. Without proper treatment, poor mental health can become debilitating.
Redefine Healthcare recognizes the many challenges our patients face in getting the help they need. In New Jersey, over 650,000 individuals with mild to serious mental illness did not receive mental health treatment. Although progress has been made in the last decade in treating mental health conditions, there is an unmet need for mental health treatment, and Redefine Healthcare is working to change this statistic by providing patients in New Jersey access to top-tier mental health services. We are in-network with most major insurance plans. Whether you suffer from depression, anxiety, PTSD, or substance abuse, Redefine Healthcare’s mental health team is here to help.
Areas of expertise:
Depression is a mood disorder, associated with feelings of sadness, loss, or anger. It can often interfere with your daily activities and work, influence relationships, and trigger some chronic health conditions. Depression is a serious condition that can get worse without proper treatment. Signs of depression may include feelings of sadness or hopelessness, crying, loss of interest in hobbies, difficulty concentrating, remembering, or making decisions, appetite or weight changes, and thoughts of suicide or self-harm, among others. The symptoms of depression vary from person to person in severity, how often they occur, and how long they last. Depending on the symptoms and cause, we may be able to pinpoint the type of depression you are suffering from, but often, your depression may have no obvious cause.
Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is an effect of experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event, such as combat exposure, childhood abuse, or an accident. PTSD symptoms often develop in the form of intrusive memories or avoidance of the event, changes in thoughts or mood, and changes in physical and emotional reactions. If these types of symptoms last for months, or even years, and interfere with your day-to-day functioning, you may have PTSD. Seeking treatment following the start of PTSD symptoms is critical in the long-term management of the condition and can keep symptoms from getting worse. The primary treatment for PTSD is psychotherapy but can include medication. Seeking treatment for your PTSD can help you regain a sense of control over your life.
Stress and anxiety disorders are more involved than temporary worry or fear. While occasional stress and anxiety is a part of life, for an individual with an anxiety disorder, the feelings of stress and anxiety don’t go away and can worsen over time. Anxiety disorders often involve repeated episodes of intense anxiety, fear, and terror – known as panic attacks. These panic attacks and feelings of anxiety can interfere with daily activities and are difficult to control. We treat several types of anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and various phobia-related disorders. Anxiety disorders are often treated with psychotherapy, medication, or a combination of both.
Substance abuse and addiction is a complex diseases. Addiction is a progressive disease that causes individuals to lose control of a substance, despite the worsening effects and consequences of its use. Drugs change the brain in a way that makes stopping their use both physically and mentally difficult. Drugs that are more commonly misused include alcohol, stimulants, hallucinogens, inhalants, opioid painkillers, and prescription drugs, among others. While these drugs are all extremely different, they all activate the addiction center of the brain, which is what makes these substances habit-forming. Treatment for substance abuse and addiction often requires a combination of therapies.
