When entering a rehabilitation program, most expect to be treated only for their addiction. However, during treatment clients can uncover underlying disorders that go beyond addiction. These mental health issues can even be one of the causes of substance abuse.
A proper dual diagnosis is essential in treating individuals with multiple afflictions. If the mental health issues are left untreated, they can continue fueling the addiction.
At Clarity Way, we identify any underlying mental health issues and design a customized treatment plan to address them, along with your addiction. With Clarity Way by your side, you can enjoy healing on every level.
If you have an addiction to drugs or alcohol and also suffer from a mental or emotional disorder, it is referred to as a dual diagnosis. Underlying problems such as depression, bi-polar disorder, anxiety, and panic disorders are just a few of the many health issues that can be uncovered during drug and alcohol treatment. Often, the underlying issue is a primary reason the addiction developed, so identifying and addressing the problem makes recovery an easier and more productive process.
Many people who suffer from multiple disorders experience relapses because the root cause of their addiction is not being addressed. Simply treating an addiction will not help a person with a dual diagnosis. It is vitally important a proper assessment takes place to identify a dual diagnosis so the most beneficial forms of treatment can be used.
To effectively treat an addiction and any underlying mental health issues, a holistic approach is needed. Instead of focusing solely on the addiction, our treatment program addresses all aspects of your well-being: physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual. Through holistic treatment, you can heal on every level and develop the strong foundation needed to sustain your long-term sobriety.
Effective treatment for dual diagnosis must also be customized to each individual. At Clarity Way, we design your treatment program based on your specific needs, goals, challenges, and interests.
Our empathetic staff will work with you to define your goals, identify your challenges, and uncover any underlying mental health issues. Based on your one-of-a-kind profile, we will design a treatment program that is tailor-made for you. Throughout your stay, we will review your treatment program to ensure it is meeting all of your specific needs. As you evolve on your path to sobriety, so too will your treatment plan.
Our dual diagnosis recovery program offers a variety of treatment modalities, from Psychotherapy and Psychiatry along with Family Therapy and Drug and Alcohol Counseling … to name a few. Clients with a duel diagnosis can simultaneously receive treatment for their addiction as well as their underlying mental health issues. A focused treatment program centering on the healing of the whole person is the most effective for a dual diagnosis.
If you are struggling with an addiction and not experiencing success in recovery, a dual diagnosis could be the root of your problem. Our dual diagnosis rehab can help treat your addiction as well as any underlying mental or emotional conditions that may be blocking your progress.
