Unity Place of Monmouth works with its clients to overcome mental health and addiction issues and does so by taking a holistic approach with them. Success for us means improving the overall health of our clients. Unity staff are mindful of that year-round but especially during February, which is Healthy Heart Month.
Unity Place understands that people suffering from depression or who are addicted to a narcotic need to be treated in a way that promotes both physical and emotional health. Staff at Unity impart information to clients about healthy eating, staying active and meditating. Among the groups that foster holistic health is yoga. In addition, smoking cessation is of course part of the conversation around health, especially heart health.
The food served at Unity reflects the belief that we want clients to feel physically as well as emotionally and mentally. Unity Place provides three meals a day, all of which incorporate grains, fruits vegetables and proteins. Our chef has creative ways to ensure nutrition for clients.
A recent development in caring for clients’ entire range of health needs is a partnership Unity Place has formed with Monmouth Family Health Care, located in Long Branch. The health center provides primary care and a range of specialty medical care. Through this collaboration, Unity Place treats Monmouth Family Health patients meets a need of providing addiction care and in return sends our clients to Monmouth for medical or dental issues.
All it all, the people who come to Unity Place for behavioral health care receive that and so much more.
