Why Consider Treatment for Self-Harm at Haverhill Pavilion

Benefits of getting treatment for self-harm at Haverhill Pavilion in Haverhill, MA

Untreated self-harm can have a devastating impact on a person’s life. In the absence of effective professional treatment, a person who engages in self-harm remains at risk for considerable physical and psychological damage.

The physical impact of untreated self-harm can include serious medical complications. Although self-harming behaviors are not suicide attempts, people who intentionally hurt themselves are at risk for accidentally ending their lives. But physical damage is far from the only danger posed by self-harm.

Most people who engage in self-harm shroud their activities in secrecy. They may feel the need to lie to or otherwise mislead friends or family members. This can cause rifts within relationships, which can lead to withdrawal and isolation. Losing the support of loved ones can be devastating. It can even push a person into more frequent or more dangerous acts of self-harm.

But when a person gets effective professional treatment for self-harm, they can reduce their risk for future damage and begin to heal from the pain that they have already incurred. When they get treatment at a comprehensive inpatient center such as Haverhill Pavilion, they can begin to experience improved physical and psychological well-being.

At our self-harm treatment center in Haverhill, MA, adults and older adults receive personalized, age-appropriate care. Our clients work with compassionate professionals who can identify and address co-occurring disorders that may have contributed to, or been impacted by, their struggles with self-harm.

We can also connect family members with appropriate community-based resources so that they can learn how to best support their loved ones during and after their time in treatment for self-harm.

If you’ve been struggling with self-harm, or if someone you care about has been engaging in this dangerous behavior, don’t let guilt, shame, or similar emotions prevent you from seeking proper treatment. Haverhill Pavilion can put you or your loved one on the path toward a healthier, happier, and more satisfying future. To learn more, contact us today.

Haverhill Pavilion does not provide treatment for self-harm at these levels, but we can refer you to trusted, thoroughly vetted facilities or professionals who can support your continuing care needs.
