​​​​​​​​​​How to Reach Out for Help

There can come a time in anyone's life when family or job stress and physical or emotional health issues can be overwhelming. Even self-harm can be a consideration. Where do you turn when life's stressors are no longer manageable? When behavioral, emotional or substance abuse issues threaten to tear you or your family apart, the skilled and experienced staff ​at Atrium Health Floyd Medical Center Behavioral Health can help lead you and your loved ones toward recovery. 

Everyone's Stressors are Different

Everyone's life is different and coping skills are different, too. Some people have high anxiety just thinking about changing jobs while others crave moving up the career ladder. When travel is necessary or scheduled for vacation, the thought of a short flight immobilizes some people while others cannot wait to fly on their next trip, perhaps a longer international flight. Just as people cope differently with life's stressors, our professionals provide an individualized approach to treatment—depending on each person's needs, goals and expectations.

Know When t​o Seek Help 

Do you know when to seek help for physical and emotional issues? Many times, just speaking with friends can lead someone to seek help when talking through a problem isn't enough. You can also talk to your primary care physician about any issues you are experiencing and they can process a referral to Floyd Behavioral Health.

But sometimes you need immediate help for a pressing problem or more urgent issue. If you or someone you love suffers from symptoms of everyday stress, it's important to identify the point when you need to call for help. Everyone's life balance is different, and it's never too early or too late to call for help for any condition or issue.

Continuum of Care Works for Patients

Our programs are strong and successful because of our continuum of care. We know getting well is a journey, and every journey is different and every step may vary. A patient may step down to the partial program with support five​ days a week or step down to individual care. We always evaluate where the individual is at in the journey and treat them accordingly, depending on their needs and progress.
