Sprout Health Group, a leading network of licensed, accredited mental health and addiction treatment facilities nationwide, has launched Essential Behavioral Health, an outpatient facility with a focus on mental health and co-occurring disorders. Essential Behavioral Health will complement Sprout’s core program of highly personalized, evidence-based treatment for substance use disorders with dedicated services for primary issues of anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and other mental health challenges – with or without addiction disorder. Specific programming includes weekly individualized psychiatric and therapeutic sessions, groups include a focus on maladaptive behaviors; guilt, shame and fear; trauma education; and anger and emotion to strengthen skills in these areas, comprehensive aftercare, and alumni services.
In addition to the primary mental health program, Essential Behavioral Health will offer an addiction treatment program with enhanced co-occurring mental health offerings. This will replace the current Clean and Sober Recovery program and operate at the Sacramento County, California facility. The medical team is led by Christian Small, M.D., a triple-boarded doctor in psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, and family medicine, and Andrew Mendonsa, Psy.D., a nationally recognized clinical psychologist and expert reviewer for the California Board of Psychology.
