Cheaha Mental Health in Talladega is now AltaPointe. I've heard things that are terrifying me, med changes, rudness and worst of all Dr. Stanley is gone plus our therapists have left. I've been on some meds for over 10 years with just a tweak or adjustment here and there to get me to a point where I can function. Now I hear they are stopping some. Going to be a bunch of crazies in Talladega getting ill and crazier. Please don't let it be true! Obamacare sucks.
Struggling with alcoholism or a drug addiction can make recovery seem impossible. At AltaPointe, we believe sobriety is possible. Deciding to work toward recovery by seeking the right treatment and support is the first step. Change is not easy, and the journey to recovery may be riddled with hurdles, but our professionals can help patients identify the underlying problems that led to their addictions. Sometimes people who have become addicted to substances or alcohol also may have mental health issues. This is called dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder. The best way to achieve recovery and wellness is by seeking an integrated treatment program that addresses both problems simultaneously. AltaPointe has worked with individuals who have co-occurring disorders for many decades. We have a reputation for helping our patients succeed in addressing their dual diagnoses and developing strategies to maintain healthy lifestyles and wellness.
