Dual Diagnosis Addiction Treatment
When someone is facing mental illness and addiction simultaneously it is called dual diagnosis (or co-occurring disorders). For those seeking addiction treatment, the added challenge of an emotional or psychological health problem can seem overwhelming and finding the right inpatient dual diagnosis treatment center is essential for long term recovery. The specialists at Luxury Beach Rehab have extensive experience working with addicts suffering from mental health challenges and will work with you to develop a unique treatment program tailored to your needs.
Reports indicate that over half of those suffering from substance abuse or addiction have at least one mental health issue while almost a third of people with mental health problems struggle with addiction. Because addiction and mental illness are unique to each individual, it is can be extremely challenging to recognize co-occurring disorders. There are, however, some signs to look for, including:
- Panic attacks
- Alcohol or drug abuse
- Erratic behavior
Our therapists understand the importance of identifying the mental health issues underlying addiction and offer holistic treatment programs designed to treat all aspects of your diagnosis.
Dual Diagnosis-Specific Programs
Our dual diagnosis addiction treatment program begins with a comprehensive assessment that allows us to develop a treatment plan designed to help you understand your mental struggles so that you can begin to see how they relate to your addiction. Many people turn to drugs or alcohol to temporary relieve the symptoms of mental illness, but is important to recognize that while self medicating may offer a moment of respite, the underlying mental issues will need to be treated in order to make a full recovery.
A combination of clinical detox, monitored medication, physical rehabilitation, counseling, personal integrative therapy, and group therapy will be integrated into your treatment program, offering an holistic approach to your recovery.
