Medicare Preventive Services Help You Live

by James Heller 26. February 2014 10:57
As we approach and arrive at our senior years, we begin to understand why doctors always told us to take better care of our health.  Prevention is something we hear about all of our lives, and only a small percentage of us really take it seriously.  The good news is that many age-related health issues can be improved and avoided with preventive care services covered by Medicare.
 
 
Better health can always be found through exercise and an improved diet, of course.  There are other issues, though, that are not so easy to control.  It’s much more dangerous for seniors to get the flu, life events can cause depression, and smoking or earlier substance abuse can lead to a whole list of related health problems.  Preventive screenings, counseling, vaccinations, and lab tests help to diagnose or treat potential health risks before they become serious problems.

Using available preventive services improves your health, which leads to other benefits.  Your golden years should be spent enjoying life, so better health means fewer visits to care providers.  You have better things to do.  Just a wellness exam and flu shot will keep the doctor away for a while.  Good health means a more active lifestyle and less reliance on others to get around, as well.  So, preventive care really does give you more joy and freedom in life.

Tarzana Treatment Centers provides Medicare preventive care services at our Primary Care Clinics. We offer a wide variety of the covered services so you can experience that joy and freedom.  We look forward to seeing you soon.  Here is an alphabetical list:
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening
  • Alcohol Misuse Screening and Behavioral counseling Intervention in Primary Care
  • Annual Wellness Visit (Including Personalized Prevention Plan Services)
  • Bone Mass Measurements
  • Cancer Screenings
    • Breast Cancer (mammograms and clinical breast exam)
    • Cervical and Vaginal Cancer (pap test and pelvic)
    • Colorectal Cancer
    • Prostate (PSA blood test and Digital Rectal Exam)
  • Cardiovascular Disease Screening
  • Depression Screening in Adults
  • Diabetes Screening
  • Diabetes Self-Management Training
  • Glaucoma Screening
  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Screening
  • Immunizations (Seasonal Influenza, Pneumococcal, and Hepatitis B)
  • Initial Preventive Physical Examination - “Welcome to Medicare” Preventive Visit
  • Intensive Behavioral Therapy for Cardiovascular Disease
  • Intensive Behavioral Therapy for Obesity
  • Medical Nutrition Therapy (for beneficiaries with diabetes or renal disease)
  • Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) Screening 
  • High-Intensity Behavioral Counseling (HIBC) to prevent STIs
  • Tobacco-Use Cessation Counseling

CTN Connect Powered by Arkadin/Vidyo Comes to TTC

by James Heller 24. June 2013 09:23
Tarzana Treatment Centers is proud to have three member sites in the California Telehealth Network (CTN) since the State opened the agency.  The CTN brings together health care providers throughout the state using the latest in telehealth technologies.  Last Friday, CTN issued a press release introducing CTN Connect powered by Arkadin/Vidyo, a video conference application for its member sites.
 
 
You can see the press release by clicking on this link:

Tarzana Treatment Centers has been testing CTN Connect for a few weeks prior to this press release.  The Arkadin/Vidyo application is easy to use, which has made the staff training process a breeze.  It includes many complex features, like screen sharing and viewing options, and they can all be controlled by even the most novice users with an impressive simplicity.  Video and audio are crisp on both wired and wireless connections.

Staff members who have used CTN Connect for live sessions at Tarzana Treatment Centers have responded with high ratings for the new application.  In the first eight business days of use, the amount of clients served via telehealth has more than doubled using CTN Connect.  This is in only two departments, so we see a very good future with this application.

Valley Tele-Treatment Program (VTP)

by James Heller 26. February 2013 15:10
 
by Charles Yeh, MSW, ASW, CADC II, Project Coordinator
 
The Valley Tele-Treatment Program (VTP) of Tarzana Treatment Centers utilizes tele-communications (phone, e-mail, and video-conferencing) to assess for substance abuse issues, and provide immediate individual counseling if appropriate.  By making access easier and more comfortable, and by combining the role of brief intervention with treatment, VTP can better help individuals at crucial moments concerning the risks and harm related to substance use.  Participation may be as brief as one telephone conversation, or extend up to six months, depending on each individuals need.  
 
A first goal of VTP is to reach more individuals, and to reach them sooner, to provide individualized prevention and early intervention for alcohol and substance use before consequences become severe, or individuals become dependent on alcohol or other drugs.  Because it is not necessary for individuals to travel to our facility in person, the initial apprehension individuals may feel about speaking with a certified alcohol & drug counselor is greatly reduced.  A second goal of VTP is to make treatment more accessible for individuals at all levels of substance use severity.  Not only does VTP allow individuals experiencing physical or transportation barriers to more easily access treatment, the flexibility of the program offers broad effectiveness for treatment:

  1. Low risk for harm—VTP offers a safe and confidential way to explore present issues and help to access the options available for help
  2. Moderate risk for harm—VTP offers counseling to help build coping skills, and to facilitate participation in an ongoing supportive community for recovery
  3. Severe risk for harm—VTP offers interim counseling to help maintain motivation and commitment to recovery when individuals are still waiting to receive residential or onsite outpatient treatment
  4. Already in recovery—VTP offers continuing support to individuals going through a difficult transition
 
VTP services are available in English and Spanish, and are no cost for qualifying individuals.  If you would like to access services, refer someone, or learn more about VTP, please call (818) 654-3821, or email vtp@tarzanatc.org.

Resolve to Have Good Health Any Day

by James Heller 27. December 2012 14:49
Are you making a resolution for the New Year? Why wait for and limit yourself to January 1st?
 
 
Health issues do not place themselves on hold until a certain date, and neither should you.  If you don’t take care of yourself, your health will deteriorate in time.  Even when you are in good physical and mental condition, it won’t last forever if you smoke, drink to excess, or don’t eat enough healthy foods.  And if you have a need for medical care, or mental or behavioral treatment, your condition will get worse with every day that you wait.

Tarzana Treatment Centers provides Integrated Care services for most of your health needs. Many of our patients come to us for help when problems have resulted from their conditions, especially when the problem is mental health or addiction related.  These problems can be avoided with proper preventive care, like the ones we provide for these conditions as well as for medical care.  Most of these services are also covered by public funding programs like Medicare, Medi-Cal, and Healthy Way LA.

It’s a fun game we play every December.  We promise that, at the start of the New Year, we’ll stop smoking, quit drinking, exercise regularly, eat healthier, or something else that will benefit our individual health.  Most of us also break that promise by January 3rd.  There are many studies and tips that can be found by Googling “New year’s resolution study”, but our best suggestion is to just make that resolution and get started right now.

The date doesn’t matter, and January 1st is probably the most pressure-filled of the year.  So make a December 27th resolution or even an April 12th resolution if you want.  The calendar doesn’t care about your good health.  The time to improve your current health and future well-being is now.  You can form a habit in just seven days.  So get started, and Tarzana Treatment Centers will be happy to help you along the way.  

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides a full array of health care services including adult and youth alcohol and drug treatment.  We specialize in treatment for mental health and substance use disorders, and have two primary medical care clinics in the San Fernando Valley and Antelope Valley and specialized services for HIV/AIDS care.  If you or a loved one needs help with alcohol dependencedrug addiction, or co-occurring mental health disorders or from other services we offer, please call us now at 888-777-8565 or contact us using our secure contact form.

Newton Shootings and Mental Health

by James Heller 19. December 2012 10:34
The tragic event in Newtown, CT, where a man killed 20 children and 6 adults, has spawned a new wave of stories about access to mental health treatment. You may have read that treatment isn’t available, or that it’s too expensive and inaccessible.  The truth is that treatment is available and affordable for anyone who needs it, and Tarzana Treatment Centers works hard to spread the word. 
 
 
When we see the capacity of the human mind come out in such a terrible manner, the first question is if there was a history of mental illness.  After all, a healthy person would never even consider committing this horror.  So we get distracted by trying to get answers to how this could happen in a civilized society. Then we get mad because, “Something should have been done to prevent this”.  And then we can accept that, sometimes, bad things happen that can’t be explained.

The good news is that this process is very healthy.  We’re grieving as a nation because the crime was unfathomable.  We were caught by surprise.  The discussions with friends and strangers alike help us to get past the disbelief, resistance, anger, and to finally accept that it happened.  If you are stuck on any part of the grieving process, you should seek short-term therapy.  It will help you process the emotions, and you will learn how to cope better in the future.

The bad news is that many people who could use that short-term therapy or a long-term form of treatment for severe illness won’t seek it.  It may be a fear of being stigmatized, which won’t happen because treatment is confidential, and we care enough to keep it that way.  They may fear that they can’t afford it, which often keeps them from beginning the research for help, so they never find out that public funding, including Medicare, can usually cover them.

Family members might make a call for a loved one, but they often don’t follow through.  This is a tragedy because it may just take one therapy session to see an improvement.  For most new admissions to mental health treatment, this offers hope that they didn’t think existed, and they gladly enter long-term therapy. So you only need to get them to the facility, and we can do the rest.  You may be surprised how easy it is to do this.

We have many programs at Tarzana Treatment Centers for mental health treatment, covering minor cases of depression to severe mental disability.  We accept Medicare, Medi-Cal, Healthy Way LA, and several other forms of public funding.  If you or a loved one is sick, treatment is needed.  It starts by picking up the phone or filling out a contact form.  As soon as you take that first step, you will feel the weight begin to lift from your shoulders.  We know this from years of experience.

It may never come to light what caused Adam Lanza to commit the unthinkable, and it probably doesn’t matter on a personal level.  What matters most is that we are healthy as a society, and we take care of each other when tragedy strikes.  We offer our services so you, our neighbors, friends, and family, can stay healthy when the going gets tough.  And we have set our services up so you can access them and afford them.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides a full array of health care services including adult and youth alcohol and drug treatment.  We specialize in treatment for mental health and substance use disorders, and have two primary medical care clinics in the San Fernando Valley and Antelope Valley and specialized services for HIV/AIDS care.  If you or a loved one needs help with alcohol dependencedrug addiction, or co-occurring mental health disorders or from other services we offer, please call us now at 888-777-8565 or contact us using our secure contact form.

Make the Holidays Happy this Year

by James Heller 4. December 2012 15:32
While this time of year brings joy and merriment to most of us, we in the substance use and mental health treatment field are all too familiar with those who find it troublesome.  Conflicts can arise from within, stemming from disorders that make social gatherings terrifying.  Or they can be substance induced, making someone an annoyance or worse at holiday gatherings.  If this was a problem for you or a loved one last year, we would like to suggest that you get help so the holidays can be pleasant going forward.
 
 
Anyone who suffers from mental health or substance use disorders, and their loved ones, are familiar with troubles during the holiday season.  Yet, each year, millions hope that conflicts and heartaches from the past won’t be repeated.  As a general rule, negative behavior gets in the way of the good times once again, every year.  

Mental health disorders can cause individuals to avoid social gatherings, in cases of depression, which can bring loneliness and bitter feelings.  Anxiety, Bi-Polar Disorder, and other conditions can result in tense outbursts or other negative behaviors at gatherings.  Their loved ones might say that they suffer as much, if not more, than the person with the disorder.  Sadness or anger becomes the prevailing emotions of the season for all involved.

Alcohol use is at an annual high due to holiday parties, out of school youths, and the seasonal servings of festive drinks.  The weather is colder, and many feel like they have an excuse to “let loose”.  When alcohol abusers drink more than usual, verbal conflicts, physical fights, and tragic accidents are a higher likelihood.  When alcohol is served at a large holiday gathering, at least one person is bound to be negatively impacted by an alcohol abuser.  And, we’re sorry that it still needs to be said, innocent people die from drunken driving accidents.  Alcohol abuse is in no way “festive”.

It’s the same pattern, year after year, that we see at Tarzana Treatment Centers.  Admissions for substance use and mental health drop as the holiday season approaches.  Then they rise somewhat sharply as the New Year begins, after the spotlight has been shown on individuals and their disorders. Most of them had considered entering treatment before the holidays, but put it off so they could enjoy them, as they say.

Whether the problems of last year were mild or severe, we suggest that you or your loved one speaks with a counselor before the first holiday gathering.  This is especially a good idea if problems have occurred more than once with an individual.  You deserve better.  Something as simple as a Vivitrol injection to reduce alcohol cravings may be the remedy.  It will help you to begin the process of healing, and you can become a part of the crowd that will enjoy a happy holiday season this year.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides a full array of health care services including adult and youth alcohol and drug treatment.  We specialize in treatment for mental health and substance use disorders, and have two primary medical care clinics in the San Fernando Valley and Antelope Valley and specialized services for HIV/AIDS care.  If you or a loved one needs help with alcohol dependencedrug addiction, or co-occurring mental health disorders or from other services we offer, please call us now at 888-777-8565 or contact us using our secure contact form.

Holiday Health Considerations

by James Heller 9. October 2012 10:26
The holidays are not far off, so we suggest that you plan ahead to ensure they are joyful.  Don’t be the person who gets treated after the good times are over.  You should take care of your health now, because this time of year brings tension, celebration, and reunions that require good physical and mental condition.
 
 
For most, it’s a time of joy and family, gatherings, food, drinks, gifts, and seasonal entertainment.  Others may not engage in the festivities, but it is difficult for them to completely escape the collateral effect of all that is going on.  And, while it is mostly a time of merriment, there are aspects of the holiday season that are very unhealthy for some individuals.  

Tensions rise as we lead in to November and December due to financial issues, relationships or lack thereof, lost loves and those who’ve passed on, and other factors.  These can be minor issues, and don’t affect most people.  When they add up for one person, though, and they have a heart condition, are a senior, in recovery, or already under pressure, anxiety can get out of control.  Even worse, it can actually cause a heart attack or stroke.

Those who engage in alcohol or drug abuse tend to binge during the holidays, either for celebration or as a result of the tensions mentioned above.  Individuals in recovery are vulnerable to relapse at this time of year as well.  They may ruin parties, anger loved ones, break things, and, worst of all, cause an accident while driving.  Too many holiday parties, that were otherwise enjoyable, end in tragedy due to alcohol and drug abuse.

Tarzana Treatment Centers wishes you and your loved ones a wonderful holiday season.  To that aim, we are suggesting preventative care so that you may enjoy them to the fullest.  We want you to come see us before the tension rises and alcohol consumption increases, rather than when mounting health problems force you to see us after.

We provide preventative screenings at our clinics, including annual check-ups, cardio-pulmonary exams, and flu shots.  Seniors can get many of these preventative services under Medicare coverage.  For our friends suffering from substance abuse and addiction disorders, we can help with medical detoxification, residential and outpatient treatment, and Vivitrol treatment for alcohol or opiate craving reduction.  Our mental health treatment services are available for minor to severe disorders.

Please think ahead this year.  You will have a much better holiday season if you take a little time to prevent health problems.  Better yet, you will start a good habit for the new year.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides a full array of health care services including adult and youth alcohol and drug treatment.  We specialize in treatment for mental health and substance use disorders, and have two primary medical care clinics in the San Fernando Valley and Antelope Valley and specialized services for HIV/AIDS care.  If you or a loved one needs help with alcohol dependencedrug addiction, or co-occurring mental health disorders or from other services we offer, please call us now at 888-777-8565 or contact us using our secure contact form.

Telemedicine services are also available with online medical care, online mental health treatment, and online alcohol and drug treatment.

California Health Care – Medi-Cal and the Affordable Care Act (ACA)

by James Heller 25. September 2012 08:42
When provisions of the federal Affordable Care Act (ACA) go into effect in 2014, Medi-Cal will begin covering about 1.5 million new beneficiaries in California alone.  In addition, the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 will more-likely be enforced due to the ACA.  This means that Medi-Cal will be required to cover many more individuals who need mental health care and substance use disorder treatment.  
 
 
These are important changes that, if handled properly, can benefit a large number of California citizens who have gone without vital mental health treatment due to lack of financial ability.  Tarzana Treatment Centers is proud to have our very own President, Albert Senella, taking a lead position to help the State organize what could be a very complicated situation.  His decades of health care and funding experience has given him a unique perspective of the changes that need to take place.

The California Healthline article, “Mental Health, Substance Abuse Treatment Changing”, details of the challenges and spells out the possible solutions.  It is an interesting look at differing approaches the State, treatment facilities, and professional organizations are taking to address health care funding.  We hope you will take a few minutes to become educated on this important topic.

Youth and Family Services at Tarzana Treatment Centers

by James Heller 3. August 2012 07:11
When the health of family members is a concern, you want to trust their health care only to quality providers.  This is especially true for children and seniors.  It is also helpful if all of your health care providers are at one location.

Tarzana Treatment Centers provides many of the services you need to maintain good physical and mental health.  We also contract with several public funding sources so we can provide these services to anyone who needs them.  
 
 
Starting with our medical care clinics, physicians can attend to your physical health care needs in a clean and comfortable setting.  If you suffer from a mental health disorder, our licensed professionals are available for therapy.  Alcohol and drug addiction treatment is also available, including medical detoxification and Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT).  For individuals who are HIV positive, our well-renowned HIV Services can help manage your special needs.

Growing up can be difficult.  Our Youth Services staff specializes in treating teen alcohol and drug abuse, as well as adolescent mental health issues.  These problems can tear the family apart, so our youth programs are built to repair the bonds that have been broken.  Family members learn to accept one-another and work together, which strikes at the core of substance use disorders.  

We provide senior health services covered by Medicare and Medicare Advantage.  Along with medical care, mental health treatment and substance abuse treatment services are available.  These issues often go ignored by family members and seniors suffer needlessly.  We will provide services ranging from short-term therapy to residential treatment.

Tarzana Treatment Centers accepts Medi-Cal, Healthy Way LA (HWLA), and a few other forms of public funding for health care services.  You can call to find out if you are covered.  If you are not currently enrolled in a program, we can help you to apply.  We also accept most forms of private insurance, and private payment on a sliding scale based on your ability to pay.

Please call today.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides a full array of health care services including adult and youth alcohol and drug treatment.  We specialize in treatment for mental health and substance use disorders, and have two primary medical care clinics in the San Fernando Valley and Antelope Valley and specialized services for HIV/AIDS care.  If you or a loved one needs help with alcohol dependencedrug addiction, or co-occurring mental health disorders or from other services we offer, please call us now at 888-777-8565 or contact us using our secure contact form.

Healthy Way LA Mental Health Coverage for General Relief Recipients

by James Heller 1. August 2012 08:38
If you receive General Relief and suffer from a mental health disorder, you should not put off treatment.  You may be eligible to get free treatment through Healthy Way LA (HWLA).  Qualified individuals have already been automatically enrolled in HWLA and should have received a new member packet.  

Tarzana Treatment Centers provides health care services covered by HWLA, including quality mental health treatment.  As your Medical Home, we can provide care for all of your medical needs and mental health in one location.  This means less time traveling to providers, and more of a friendly relationship with the people who will help you.  Our clinics are also clean and comfortable with friendly staff to assist you.

When we say that HWLA care is free, we mean that it is at no cost to you.  You can get medical care, mental health treatment, medications, and other managed care services at absolutely no cost.

If you are unsure of your HWLA eligibility, our staff can see if you are enrolled.  If you are not, and you qualify, they will help you to enroll.  It takes less time than you would think if you make an appointment.  Even if you don’t qualify, and you receive General Relief, it is likely that you qualify for another program.  So you do not need to put off getting the care you need.  We can also help your loved ones, so bring them along.
