The intersection between addiction and mental health disorders can be confusing and overwhelming. The relationship between the two can be a bit like the relationship between the chicken and the egg. Sometimes addiction and alcoholism occur because you’re self-medicating a mental health disorder. Other times the mental health disorders occur from long-term drug and alcohol use. It can be hard to tell what started first or even to separate the symptoms. You may not even know that you are suffering from a mental health disorder.
Dual diagnosis centers in California will help you navigate your addiction and any co-occurring mental health disorders. At Laguna View Detox, we understand the complexity of treating a mental health disorder and addiction simultaneously. We are here to support you with a holistic, individualized approach that puts you firmly on the path to long-term recovery.
Dual Diagnosis Centers in California Explained
Dual diagnosis simply means that you have two diagnoses. You suffer from addiction and have a mental health disorder such as anxiety, depression, trauma disorder, personality disorder, or mood disorder. You may not even realize that you have a mental health disorder.
At our dual diagnosis centers in California, we begin your treatment with a complete assessment so that we can craft an individualized treatment plan for you. Treatment for your addiction must encompass treatment for your mental health disorder to be effective. This is especially true if your substance abuse began as a way to self-medicate. We will work with you during your assessment and treatment to identify any mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and more. We understand how alcohol and drugs can be soothing, but we can also help you identify healthier ways to cope. We will help you look at how your life is structured and help you create a life that better supports your mental health.
How Laguna View Detox Helps Treat Addiction and Mental Illness
At Laguna View Detox, we understand that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to addiction and mental health treatment. We also understand that you are more than your diagnosis. You are not depressed, and you are not an addict. You are a person who suffers from addiction and depression.
Our dual diagnosis centers in California are staffed with empathetic, compassionate, licensed professionals who can support you as you sort through both with therapies like cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and more. By focusing on both your mental health and your addiction, we can treat both and create a more enhanced relapse prevention plan for you. If you have been self-medicating, we can help you identify triggers and strategies for responding to them. We will help you learn how to take action before you reach a crisis and protect your mental health.
You don’t have to continue to suffer in isolation. We are here to partner with you to help you break free of your addiction and best support your mental health.
