Reading, Pennsylvania’s Premier Mental Health Treatment Center

Seeking treatment for a mental health disorder is a courageous decision that requires a great deal of bravery and conviction. But in order to set yourself up for the best possible outcomes, it’s essential to find a mental health treatment center that provides personalized care in an environment you can trust.

At Tower Behavioral Health, you’ll engage in evidence-based treatment that caters to your unique needs. In our experience, that’s the formula for optimal results.

The Benefits of Mental Health Treatment

Living with a mental health disorder can be frightening. It can affect the social, emotional, physical, and psychological aspects of your life. Part of that intimidation can be simply not knowing enough about the condition you’re facing.

When you receive mental health treatment at Tower Behavioral Health, you’ll learn about the disorder you’ve been suffering from and understand how best to manage this illness. You’ll also be able to learn the skills and hone the practices that will help you lead a much more comfortable, satisfying life.

You’ll work with a team of compassionate, experienced professionals who will guide you through the mental health treatment process, and you’ll meet fellow patients who have followed a similar path. Mental health disorders can often be isolating, but you’ll discover that they don’t have to be.

How to Pick the Right Type of Mental Health Treatment

Finding the right mental health treatment center isn’t as simple as understanding treatment plans and therapeutic programming. You deserve mental health treatment that identifies your strengths, resiliency factors, and stressors and works specifically to benefit you.

It’s also important to find a mental health treatment center that updates your treatment plan based on your progress. You want your care to be reflective of the headway you’re making, so it’s best to find a mental health facility that will make your treatment plan fluid as you evolve toward your goals.

Another vital element of care is choosing a mental health treatment facility that addresses the specific challenges you’ve faced that have led you here. Look for mental health treatment that identifies the struggles within your support system, which may have been activated by a crisis, trauma history, or other social triggers.

All these elements are priorities at Tower Behavioral Health. We’re constantly evolving with you thanks to a staff that documents your progress and identifies areas that require greater focus.

All patients are monitored for any adverse effects and for optimization of a therapeutic response.

One of the biggest reasons to choose Tower Behavioral Health is our aftercare planning. From the time of your admission to our mental health treatment facility, we’ll begin formulating a plan that will be updated as you progress, with the goal of setting you up to succeed after you leave our facility in Reading, Pennsylvania.
