Dual diagnosis consists of having a diagnosis of mental illness and a diagnosis of substance addiction at the same time. Many people with addictions also struggle with mental health disorders, such as trauma, depression, and anxiety. A dual diagnosis treatment program is a specific type of therapy that focuses on treating addiction and mental health simultaneously, creating the best potential for a person to overcome these conditions. At Fort Behavioral Health, our team can provide support for addictions and mental health disorders through our comprehensive dual-diagnosis treatment program.
This program offers many benefits if you adopt therapy completely. Some dual-diagnosis treatment programs also employ holistic treatments such as yoga, message therapy, meditation, and nutrition counseling to help you find the right balance, stay positive, and lead a substance-free lifestyle. A dual diagnosis treatment program provides knowledge and understanding of difficulties that were not evident to you in the past. Dual diagnosis treatment programs give you the benefit of a thorough evaluation to identify any mental disorders you may have.
Understanding exactly how each condition affects the individual will help you manage triggers and manage symptoms of relapse. However, in a dual diagnosis program, medical professionals are aware of the risks and concerns of prescription drugs in the treatment of mental illnesses and disorders. A dual diagnostic program focuses on helping you recognize these triggers and formulate a plan to treat them in the future. Getting help through a dual diagnostic program can give you the skills you need to cope with strong emotions and triggers that interfere with your daily life.
A person receiving dual-diagnosis treatment for co-occurring disorders is more likely to remain in recovery after treatment. Early conduct of a comprehensive diagnosis will not only speed up the duration of treatment, but also increase the chances of a successful recovery. The overlapping of symptoms of these conditions makes it very difficult to treat them individually. During dual diagnosis treatment, you'll learn to change your thinking processes and behaviors so that you can achieve your goals and become the person you want.
