Top-Rated Dual Diagnosis Treatment Florida
Addiction and mental illness are closely related and often occur together in one patient. Sometimes mental health issues and substance use disorders occur in somebody with a chemical imbalance in their brain. Some people have a genetic predisposition to both addiction and mental illness, and sometimes the use of certain drugs can trigger latent mental health issues that are lying dormant or can interfere with prescription medications. Often, a person who has a mental illness will use drugs to try and self-medicate, covering up their symptoms with drug use.
Alcohol and drugs actually exacerbate the problem. They make psychological issues worse by not allowing the addict to learn to cope in a healthy manner, while at the same time creating a physical dependence on the drug. When this cycle of abuse happens, the best method of treatment for both the addiction and the mental illness is a dual diagnosis treatment program.
Untreated mental health disorders combined with chemical dependency can result in the loss of your job, your relationships and friendships, poor health, disability, and a higher risk of suicide. For top-rated dual diagnosis treatment in Florida contact Legacy Healing Center. We will begin your dual diagnosis treatment from the moment you walk in the door, starting with therapy, along with prescribed medications if needed, as a part of your detox program, and continuing under close professional supervision through inpatient and outpatient rehab. You will remain in touch with mental health professionals throughout, and after rehab is over so that your treatment will remain consistent even as your circumstances change over time.
Treatment that Gets to the Root of Addiction
Dual diagnosis addresses both the root of addiction and the root of mental illness through integrated therapy, clinical care, and medication. These issues are often interconnected or can even be the same issue, so treating them together at the same time will end the cycle and lead to a more effective, long-term solution.
Who Can Benefit From Dual Diagnosis Treatment for Addiction
Anybody with any type of co-occurring issue can benefit from a dual diagnosis treatment for addiction. This can include psychological issues like:
- Generalized Anxiety Disorder
- Panic Disorder
- Borderline Personality Disorder
- Mood Disorders
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
- Bipolar Disorder
With these and other mental health issues, a dual diagnosis will help you to get to the root of both issues at once, reducing the risk of relapsing and allowing you to begin to move forward with a healthier life and new stress management skills and other life skills that will help you in the future.
