Failing to treat them both at the same time almost invariably fails to treat either. Consider: treatment of the mental health of someone struggling with addiction can only be so successful before they use the substance they’re addicted to again and undo the mental health progress. By that same token, addressing addiction without mental health puts the person at high risk (to say the very least) of abusing the toxic substance again the moment their mental health concerns become too great. Dual diagnosis keeps this from happening, offering a path forward.
How to Tell If You’re a Good Candidate for Dual Diagnosis
Often, it’s someone who exhibits signs of both addiction as well as mental health concerns. There can be considerable overlap between the two. If you believe that you may be a candidate for dual diagnosis, you don’t have to figure it out on your own. Many who have found great, lasting success with our dual diagnosis program came to Arision for treatment, only to discover during the initial evaluation from our medical staff that they would best be served with dual diagnosis treatment. Our staff can make that determination at that point and then make sure that all of your treatment while you’re here utilizes dual diagnosis to the highest degree.
What You Can Expect from Our Dual Diagnosis
From the moment your detox starts, we integrate dual diagnosis into your specific treatment. It will be a focus of your individual therapy, group therapy, education, and more. You can expect to not only receive treatment for your symptoms (which we believe your addiction to be) but also that which causes them, those underlying causes you may not even be aware of. By treating all of this at once, you can make progress not just for today but for the rest of your life.
The Right Treatment for Your Needs at Arision
While we’re proud of the dual diagnosis treatment we offer here and how it’s been able to help so many, you do not need to be a good candidate for dual diagnosis to receive treatment at Arision. Indeed, we offer treatment for those who wish to set down the burden of their addiction, their mental health problems, and to live how they want. To take the next step, you can message us through our site or call.
