The Importance of Dual Diagnosis Treatment Programs

Dual Diagnosis TreatmentThe way your mind feels plays into how your body feels. Depression, for example, although a mental health disorder, can make you feel tired and lethargic no matter how much sleep you get. There’s a clear connection between mental health and bodily health, yet many people tend to prioritize the latter over the former.

Unfortunately, if you feel like your mind is a mess, you may turn to dangerous means of fixing it. Self-medication through drugs and alcohol may seem especially tempting. Before you know it, you find yourself addicted to one of these substances. Your mental health condition worsens as a result, and you’re not sure what to do.

A co-occurring disorders treatment facility can help. These rehab facilities treat both parts of the problem: your mental health disorder and your addiction to drugs or alcohol. By addressing both these areas, you can overcome your addiction and find a way to alleviate the mental and physical symptoms that plague your life.

Here are the benefits of such treatment.

You Get Real Help

The doctors, nurses, psychologists, therapists, and counselors that work at a rehab facility are all available to help you. Their job is for you to succeed and get back to feeling like yourself again. They take your mental and physical health very seriously and will work tirelessly to find solutions that work for your lifestyle and needs. The individualized attention you’ll receive will help you overcome these obstacles.

You Don’t Necessarily Have to Go on Medication

Some therapists are eager to push medication as the immediate solution to depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorder, and other mental health disorders. However, medication can sometimes cause even more confusion, especially if the dosage or type of medication is incorrect.

Our therapists and other mental health professionals will try cognitive behavioral therapy first to see how you respond to that. If you need medication as well as therapy, this will be discussed. Your therapist will also be in regular contact to talk about how the medication is working. If the dosage needs to be adjusted, it will be.

Once Your Mind Is Clear, You’ll Feel Ready to Make Real Changes

As you begin understanding more about your mental health disorder and receiving the treatment you need, you will be able to see your life clearly again. You can start making intelligent decisions, like getting clean from drugs or alcohol. Without the weight of depression or another mental health disorder, you’ll be self-assured in your abilities to overcome your addiction.

You can choose to pick up where you left off before your addiction or you can forge a new path. That decision is up to you.
