Dual Diagnosis Treatment: A Comprehensive Approach to Treating Co-Occurring Disorders
When it comes to addiction and mental health, the two often go hand in hand. In fact, studies show that up to 60% of individuals with a substance use disorder also have a co-occurring mental health disorder. This is why it’s important to seek out a substance abuse treatment center that offers comprehensive care, including dual diagnosis treatment.
At Forward Health, we believe in treating the whole person, not just the addiction. Our dual-diagnosis treatment program is designed to help individuals who are struggling with both addiction and a co-occurring mental health disorder, such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder.
What is Dual Diagnosis Treatment?
Dual diagnosis treatment is a specialized form of treatment that addresses both addiction and a co-occurring mental health disorder. It recognizes that these two issues are often interconnected and that addressing one without the other can lead to a higher risk of relapse.
At Forward Health, our dual diagnosis treatment program involves a comprehensive assessment to identify any co-occurring mental health disorders. We then develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses both the addiction and the mental health disorder.
Treatment may involve a combination of therapies, including medication management, talk therapy, and behavioral therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Our team of experienced therapists works closely with each individual to provide the support and guidance they need to achieve lasting recovery.
Why Is Dual Diagnosis Treatment Important?
Dual diagnosis treatment is important because it recognizes that addiction and mental health are often intertwined. By addressing both issues at the same time, individuals can achieve better outcomes and reduce the risk of relapse.
Additionally, many individuals with a co-occurring mental health disorder may not be aware of their condition or may not have received proper treatment. By addressing these underlying mental health issues, individuals can develop healthier coping mechanisms and reduce the risk of using drugs or alcohol to self-medicate.
