Eating disorders have many causes and symptoms and can affect anyone, but oftentimes, false information is spread about the disease. Sovereign Health Media Correspondent, Alyssa Bochenek, sits down with Sarah Atchison, a Clinician at Sovereign Health, to break down and debunk five myths surrounding eating disorders and let you know how we can help if you or a loved one are experiencing one.
Eating disorders are the deadliest form of mental illness, and yet are more common than most people realize. That’s why it’s so vitally important to quickly and effectively identify and address them.
Recently Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, the Chief Executive Officer of Sovereign Health, was featured in the Orange County Business Journal for his organization’s success in providing exceptional quality treatment and care to patients with mental health and substance use disorders by using measurement based-care.
Measurement-based care is a phrase that many people may not be familiar with, but it’s proving to make a substantial difference in the delivery of treatment to those suffering from addiction and co-occurring mental health issues. Using measurement-based care, Sovereign Health can ensure that patients make remarkable progress during their stay in treatment.
Watch this segment on FOX 31 Denver to hear what makes Sovereign’s methods different from most other addiction treatment centers. Tonmoy Sharma, M.B.B.S., M.S.c., the founder and CEO of Sovereign Health, explains how patients are the highest priority. “We believe that mental illness, addiction and cognitive deficits are brain diseases that constrain people’s lives, but they do not define them. We see our patients as human beings and honor them for their independent qualities,” says Dr. Sharma.
Tonmoy Sharma, M.B.B.S., M.S.c., is the founder and CEO of Sovereign Health, discusses measurement-based care (MBC) and its importance to the loved ones dealing with substance use disorders and mental health issues on NBC affiliate KMIR’s program “Desert Living” on Wednesday, Sept. 13. Sovereign Health has fashioned its treatment programs to deliver high-quality care for substance use and behavioral health issues; the company has always based its treatment plans on MBC to ensure clinical efficacy and the best outcomes for all patients. MBC is the practice of periodically monitoring clinical progress and obtaining patient feedback on specific measures to improve the quality and effectiveness of treatment, and to deliver care that is tailor-made to meet each patient’s individual needs.
Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, Chief Executive Officer of Sovereign Health, spoke at the “Accreditation Workshop,” alongside The Joint Commission. Dr. Sharma’s presentation will be in two parts: “Using Measurement-Based Care to Enhance Substance Abuse and Mental Health Treatment,” and “How to Build a Company into a National Brand.”
About Sovereign’s success, Dr. Sharma says, “Measurement-based care is an invaluable tool to measure, maintain and grow the quality of care provided by your company. At Sovereign Health, quality of care, customer service and taking care of our staff are our highest priorities.”
