Dual Diagnosis Treatment in Arizona
Addressing Addiction and Mental Health Disorders
At Decision Point Center, we understand that addiction generally doesn’t develop on its own. Many people suffer from mental illness and use drugs and alcohol as a way to self-medicate and alleviate their symptoms. Unfortunately, using substances to cope only offers temporary relief and tends to make the symptoms of mental illness worse. Nevertheless, one problem does not always cause the other. Dual diagnoses, also called co-occurring disorders, occur whenever you have a substance abuse disorder and a mental illness at the same time.
For those facing a dual diagnosis, we provide psychiatry as well as therapies and treatments that address both physical and mental health. We not only focus on helping you get sober but also making sure that you are coping with your mental illness in healthy and appropriate ways. This is called “integrated intervention,” and it is based around your needs and enacted through a personalized treatment plan.
When you choose Decision Point Center, we will uncover how one condition affects another and develop a plan that works for you. To discuss your situation, please call us at (844) 292-5010 today.
How Common Is Dual Diagnosis?
According to Medline Plus, “about half of people who have a mental disorder will also have a substance use disorder at some point in their lives and vice versa.” In 2018, approximately 9.2 million U.S. adults experienced a mental illness and substance use disorder at the same time. Common risk factors, such as genetics, stress, and trauma, contribute to both substance use and mental health disorders.
How Treatment Works
To help people through dual diagnosis, we treat both conditions. First, we help you stop using drugs and/or alcohol. After a medically supervised detoxification, we work through your mental health issues and addiction using behavioral therapies, psychiatry, medications, supportive housing, and support groups.
Often, an inpatient rehabilitation program helps us get a head start on treating both disorders. At Decision Point Center, we make sure you have all the resources you need both inside and outside of our facilities.
