Bridges To Recovery Now Offers Psychological Testing
Pacific Palisades, California June 24, 2012 Health News(PRLEAP.COM) At Bridges to Recovery, a psychiatric residential treatment clinic with three locations in Southern California, we now offer psychological testing as part of our ongoing efforts to identify and treat the underlying causes of our patients' anxiety and depression.

Our assessment is comprehensive, lasting several days and examining a number of factors, including a patient's academic ability and cognitive skills, emotional health and social functioning.

This approach is in keeping with our emphasis on addressing the causes of chemical dependency rather than merely treating the dependency itself.
Based on the unique needs of each patient as determined from psychological testing, the treatment team can then go on to craft an optimal plan leading to recovery. We treat the whole patient, not just the mental health issue, so we will examine a patient's nutritional and physical fitness as well as making an assessment of the risk of self-harm or injury to others.
