Dual Diagnosis Treatment Centers: Addressing Mental Health and Addiction
Dual diagnosis treatment centers use an integrated approach to addiction treatment addressing both mental health and substance abuse. Dual diagnosis rehab is required to help patients return to a life of normalcy as they learn to address their co-occurring disorder properly. The goal of dual diagnosis treatment centers is to provide patients with the tools and resources needed to successfully cope with their mental illnesses without the use of drugs and alcohol. Some people are often afraid of the stigma associated with mental illness and being an addict or alcoholic, but once you own this, you can begin to move forward with your life. You should not feel like you are alone, in 2015 of the 20.2 million people with an admitted substance abuse disorder, nearly 8 million also had a mental health disorder.
Our staff has worked with a number of patients with co-occurring disorders that have developed before or after the onset of the addiction. We understand that entering a rehabilitation program is difficult, but it’s also necessary if you desire to live a life of sobriety. Choosing an inpatient dual diagnosis rehab center in California is the beginning of a journey towards recovery and stable mental health.
