Spanish Fork, United States - February 21, 2020 /NewsNetwork/ —

Mountain Peak Recovery Utah has launched a residential and outpatient treatment center for those with co-existing mental disorders and substance abuse. They provide integrated collaborative processes designed to differentiate between substance induced and previously existing mental illness.

Complex challenges face those living with both mental disorders and substance abuse. Often drug abuse induces psychiatric disorders, therefore making diagnosis between acute mental illness and substance abuse disorder difficult.

People with dual diagnosis disorder face increased rates of relapse, hospitalization, homelessness, HIV and Hepatitis C infection in contrast to people with mental or substance use disorders alone. It is estimated 40% to 60% of adults with a serious and persistent mental illness experience a substance use disorder in their lifetime.

Historically mental health disorders and substance use issues were treated separately. Mountain Peak recovery seeks to overcome this insufficient treatment model with the launch of services that focus on each disorder simultaneously, establishing a basis for abstinence within addiction recovery center programming.

Recovery should be viewed like a marathon rather than a sprint; diagnosis should not be forced in the lack of sobriety. Diagnosis requires an adequate duration of sobriety that can allow substance abuse withdrawal indicators to dissipate, this can take up to a year.

The approach of Mountain Peak Recovery residential treatment involves 24hr monitoring to help establish abstinence in a safe welcoming environment. Time and attention can be committed to learning new coping abilities and a stronger sense of self worth. This residential community is ideal for clients who desire to restore emotional and psychiatric health through long term treatment.

Mountain Peak Recovery has the (JCAHO) Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations certification. Awarded the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval, Mountain Peak Recovery adheres to all policies and procedures required.

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Apr 7, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Apr 7, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Apr 7, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...
