Since the 1990s, people who show mental illness symptoms, such as depression, anxiety, and substance abuse, have been treated separately from people seeking drug and alcohol abuse. This is a dual diagnosis: if these conditions overlap, clients can be denied mental illness treatment, even if they are clean and sober. Since an underlying psychiatric disorder often drives substance abuse, this can mean you never get the help you need.
One in four adults with mental illness also reportedly suffers from substance abuse disorder. In the 21st century, dual diagnoses and cures have become a powerful tool for treating mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, and substance use disorders.
Although a hard line has been drawn between mental health and addiction, both can be treated as part of a continuum. Doctors working in addiction therapy can now also be treated for co-occurring mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety. Specialized rehabilitation facilities offer rehabilitation services tailored to clients with dual diagnoses. However, for those who, in addition to substance abuse, also struggle with depression or anxiety, finding the right rehabilitation program can still be challenging.
Effective treatment of dual diagnoses involves taking into account addiction and mental illness as one goes through the recovery process. A recent study by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Applied Health Sciences reports that since 2002, 4 million American adults have been treated for a dual diagnosis. Double-diagnosed patients are found to have met the criteria for mental illness such as depression, anxiety, and substance abuse when they start treatment.
Traditional treatments often fail only cause they do not diagnose or address the entirety of the individual’s condition. Unfortunately, when the psychiatric illness is not treated, the addiction could recur, causing the person to fall back into drug or alcohol dependency. With the right treatment program, you or your loved one can regain control of a healthy and happy life. A holistic and personalized treatment of the co-occurring disorders ensures that all problematic, deep-rooted aspects of the individual’s condition are uncovered and healed.
Resurgence Behavioral Health customized dual diagnosis treatment includes a medically managed detoxification and drug rehab that includes: individual and group therapy, nutrition and exercise, support groups, medication management, family therapy, and aftercare planning.
