Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Many of those who struggle with addiction to drugs or alcohol also face mental health challenges. Substance use and mental disorders such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and other diagnoses can make it difficult to overcome addiction. However, a Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center with a specially trained treatment team can help.

Dual diagnosis involves integrated treatment for both substance use disorders and mental health issues. In other words, someone who is struggling with alcohol addiction and depression (co-occurring disorders) will receive treatment for both issues at the same time. This type of treatment can reduce the risk of relapse and promotes long-term sustainable recovery.

At Lotus Recovery Centers, we’re ready to meet you where you are and help you rebuild your life. Contact us at (833) 922-1615 to learn more.

What to Expect in Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Patients with mental and substance use disorders will receive support and inpatient medical care to help them work through both mental health conditions and substance use addiction health issues in our residential treatment centers.

They might receive a prescription for medication that will relieve the symptoms of mental illness, such as depression, or withdrawal symptoms during detox. In addition, they will participate in a support group and individual therapy, where they’ll learn about healthy coping skills and strategies so they can avoid relapse.

At Lotus Recovery Centers, we use medication-assisted treatment approach in tandem with addiction treatment therapies to treat people with co-occurring conditions. Used together, these approaches to treatment can help those in mental illness and substance abuse recovery reclaim their lives.

Benefits of Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Substance abuse can exacerbate existing mental health or mental disorders such as bipolar disorder, and vice versa. Some individuals might begin to drink heavily in order to cope with feelings of anxiety or symptoms of PTSD. On the other hand, someone who begins abusing prescription painkillers might develop a newfound struggle with depression. This can turn into a dangerous cycle that is hard to break out of.

Some treatment centers will offer only treatment for addiction without addressing co-occurring mental health concerns. However, if an individual leaves treatment without coping skills to manage their mental health, they could be more prone to relapse.
