Mental health concerns like anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) often go hand-in-hand with substance use disorders. When these two issues coexist, it can be difficult to find the proper treatment and care.
At Calvary Healing Center, we can provide support for those who are working through both mental health and substance use disorders in our addiction treatment programs. Our dual diagnosis recovery program is designed to help individuals identify the underlying mental health issues that may be fueling their addiction and develop the skills to manage them in a healthy way.
If you or a loved one is living with both mental health issues and substance use issues, you are not alone. Through compassionate care and evidence-based therapies, we can help you create a pathway to recovery and long-term sobriety. Call 888.492.5113 today to get started.
Understanding Dual Diagnosis
What is a dual diagnosis? A dual diagnosis is when an individual experiences both mental health concerns and addiction. In order for someone to receive the best care, both the mental health issues and substance use disorder must be treated.
How are these two things connected? First, mental health concerns can lead to self-medicating with drugs or alcohol. That’s why it’s important to identify and treat the underlying mental health issue before focusing on the addiction itself. On the other hand, substance use issues can also lead to mental health concerns. Regular substance use can interfere with the brain’s ability to regulate emotions and behaviors, leading to depression and other mental health issues.
At Calvary Healing Center, we have experience helping patients who are struggling with both addiction and:
- Anxiety – This mental health concern is characterized by feelings of fear, uncertainty, and worry that interfere with everyday life
- Depression – A mood disorder that causes feelings of hopelessness, sadness, and loss of interest in activities
- PTSD – A trauma-related disorder that can involve flashbacks, nightmares, and emotional numbness
As you build the foundation for your recovery, you will have access to a range of evidence-based therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). These therapies help individuals recognize and challenge negative thoughts and feelings, learn healthier coping skills, and manage cravings in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
