Model | Vantage Point Recovery

Model

No matter what you’re dealing with – from emotional stress to a genetic mental disorder – overcoming that struggle and becoming a better person, as a result, is what we’re all about.

We help you achieve that through a ton of different treatment options, and we specifically weave a unique treatment plan that applies to your needs, conditions, and circumstances – but beyond that, our treatment options also help you become a better person.

Through personal empowerment, we help you discover a way to not only overcome your diagnosis but improve your sense of self, and your ability to work with others. Our model for a healthy emotional and mental state comes from a series of factors in a person’s sphere of mental influence.

Physicality

Physical Attunement

Basically, with physical attunement, you can better feel what the world around you feels like – and purposefully ignore certain things, like cold weather or excessive heat, in favor of concentrating on enjoying yourself. It’s like better physical adaptability.

Personal Health

Your mental health and physical health are inextricably linked. One can’t properly function without the other – but by improving your lifestyle in little ways like eating better and getting exercise, you can actively improve your mental health too.

Environmental Connection

The environment is important – that goes for the general nature around us, and more specifically, the home we live in. By keeping your surroundings clean, organized and healthy, you can keep yourself healthy too. Taking up gardening is a nice example.

Higher Self

There are several ways to deal with situations and people around you. You can be melancholy, or reactionary, or even overtly confident. But the best way to deal with issues is through transcendence – by taking everyone’s perspective into consideration, rather than just your own. That way, you can be a more considerate human being.

Ego

The ego is the individual. Or rather, it’s the aspect of your psychology that looks to separate and differentiate itself from everything around it to set clear boundaries of what makes it an individual entity. Often, the ego reacts out of fear, or a need for control. That kind of thinking can be dangerously narrow, which is why our treatment helps you look past your ego.

Perception

“Perception is Reality”

Let’s step into the boundless, endless speculative realms of philosophy a little bit, and ponder what perception and reality are. Reality, after all, is just how you see it – not as it actually is. That’s why your perception matters so much – you mold your own world through your mind, with negativity, positivity, and other forms of thinking.

Thoughts

Thoughts are the interpretations of how we feel – basically, a mirror that reflects how we think, by being what we think. Changed thoughts are a symptom of a changed way of thinking.

Feelings/Emotions

Like thoughts, feelings and emotions are reflections of a combination of what’s around us and our supposition of what already is – but unlike thoughts, feelings and emotions go a little deeper. An unhealthy disconnect between ourselves and our emotions means they control us, and drive us – and then we become slaves to outside stressors and unexpected scenarios.

Spiritual Awareness

You don’t have to be a part of any existing organized religion to be spiritual – you don’t even have to believe in a concrete higher power. You just have to have faith – faith in your ability to survive the future, faith in the people around you. Faith in general.

Experience

Experience is a massive factor in how we view the world – it’s the only factor. Staying true to our experiences without mutating our memories as time passes, however, is difficult.

Beliefs & Values

If experiences are accumulated, stored concepts of what we went through, then beliefs are the resulting patterns and conceptions. Being able to change your beliefs and be flexible about them – but stay true to your core values – is integral to inner strength.

Identifications

People define themselves through others. In effect, our personalities begin as a usually formless thing – and through other people’s perceptions of us, we’re molded into a concrete image. From there, however, we form our own concept of identity-based on the people we associate ourselves with – knowing who you are without bending to peer pressure is important.

Family System

Family is important. For the obvious reasons on one hand, but also because playing a role in a family is critical for us to feel safe about who we are, ultimately. We’re mostly social creatures after all.

Generational System

Age is another factor in our perception – and plays a role in how we’re perceived. People have preconceptions about how life was in certain generations – and in part, these are justified. Generation X or Y had a very different experience from those who grew up in the 50s, or Millennials.

Re-Action/Response

Act As If

With our physicality and perception in tow, we have the choice to let these two things mold our actions, or take control and be conscious of how they affect our decision making. No matter what we decide, it’s important to recognize the importance our actions have.

Conscious Reaction

These are deliberate choices, informed decisions. A conscious reaction would take other perceptions into account, to basically take the most favorable path.

Unconscious Reaction

These are actions made on reflex. The only way to control how these actions are made is by actively working on your perception and your physicality.

Personal Reality

The World As We Choose To See It

Personal reality is, ultimately, what we make of it. The way we see the world depends on us – that isn’t to say you’re supposed to put rose-tinted glasses on and force positivity where it doesn’t belong, but by being realistic and true to your emotions, you can lead an emotionally healthier life.

Conscious Creation

Conscious creation describes the way you choose to see the world, based on deliberation and conscious thought.

Unconscious Creation

Unconscious creation is the way we perceive the world around us based on our preconceptions, rather than immediate, conscious reactions or judgments.

Source

Finding Faith

Faith is the ability to be optimistic about the future – not strictly a belief in God or something similar. It’s what allows you to strive to move forward, rather than fearing the future and dwelling on the past. Faith is a source. A source of mental strength.

Higher Power

You don’t need a higher power – but some people feel like they do, be that the Christian God or an entirely different definition. Having something to believe in as a moral compass helps some people – for others, simply possessing that moral compass is enough. This is a source – a source of moral guidance.

Community

Your community helps define you, and gives you a place to belong, and connect with others. Community is a source – a source of purpose, and personal value.

Self-Love

Self-love is all about loving yourself enough, to be honest with yourself, and accepting yourself the way you are. Self-love lets you be secure about who you are, what your needs are, and how much you respect yourself. Self-love is a source of security.
