At Georgia Pain and Spine care, we strive to make our patients comfortable in any way possible with the pain they are dealing with.

You may have heard the terms “mental health” and “behavioral health” used interchangeably but there is actually a difference between the two. Mental health focuses on a number of factors that influence your emotional well-being, including your biology, psychological state, personal habits and more.
What is Behavioral Health
Behavioral health, on the other hand, is a sub discipline within the broader category of mental health. Behavioral health focuses on your habits and how they impact your overall physical and mental state. For example, compulsive eating, substance abuse, gambling, and sex addiction are all examples of behavioral health problems. Therefore, behavioral health therapy is an effort to change unhealthy habits and patterns in order to correct these underlying issues.
How GA Pain and Spine uses Behavioral Health for Their Patients
At Georgia Pain and Spine Care’s Newnan, LaGrange and Peachtree City locations we utilize state of the art cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) to treat the underlying causes of addiction and help you make the change you need and want to make. CBT is a scientific approach that is based on developing a close and collaborative relationship between the therapist and the patient. CBT therapists focus on the way that a person’s thoughts, emotions, and behaviors contribute to their total health (often negatively) and seeks to affect positive and lasting change. For example, one of our therapists, Dr. Dan Kirschenbaum has written a new book that talk about how behavioral therapy can help you change your eating habits and live a healthier life. When you come to Georgia Pain and Spine you get the best state of the art care in all dimensions of your life working with noted experts like Dr. Kirschenbaum.
