How can I manage or improve my mental health?

Managing or improving your mental health is possible with individualized, professional care at Bridge the Gap Addiction and Mental Health Services, PLLC. Depending on your diagnosis and its impact on your life, Hazel might conduct treatment with:

Medication management

Medication management is a way of managing mental health disorders with their appropriate pharmaceuticals. While not everyone needs or can benefit from medications, prescriptions such as antidepressants for depression, sedatives for anxiety, and stimulant medications for ADHD can all assist alongside counseling. 


Counseling is a highly beneficial component of any mental health care plan. Depending on your needs and preferences, you may benefit from individual counseling or counseling in a group setting. 

Residential treatment

Residential treatment may be a necessary part of your care, particularly if your mental health condition co-occurs with substance abuse. It involves counseling, medication management, detoxification, and mental health education.
