In-Patient Rehab for People with Dual Diagnosis
Many people who are struggling with substance abuse problems may also be living with undiagnosed and untreated mental issues that intensify their desire to use drugs or alcohol. This is what’s commonly referred to as a “dual diagnosis.”
Substance abuse that’s coupled with an untreated psychiatric condition can be dangerous to an individual both mentally and physically if left untreated.
Detecting Dual Diagnosis
We understand that addiction is a complex disease that goes deeper than the physical desire to drink or take drugs. Our addiction treatment team personally assesses every patient to detect mental health issues that could be contributing to substance abuse and alcoholism.
Psychiatric conditions can complicate and contribute to an individuals addictive behavior. When these conditions are detected, the patient is said to have a dual diagnosis and we come up with a personalized strategy to treat both issues.
By doing this, we are able to help the patient work through his or her issues on multiple levels. Our goal is to help our clients restore their physical and mental health so that they are better equipped to maintain their sobriety once they have left our facility.
It’s been found that people who get treatment for their addiction but are not treated for their dual diagnosis are more likely to fall into old, unhealthy patterns that can lead to relapse. By treating both aspects of dual diagnosis, clients have a greater chance at lasting sobriety and living a healthy lifestyle. It is our goal to give our clients the tools they need to control their dual diagnosis, both under our care and after they’ve left our rehab facility.
