A dual diagnosis occurs when both a mental health disorder and substance abuse problem co-occur. People often self-medicate when dealing with mental health issues which then exacerbates the initial complication. The Willows at Red Oak Recovery specializes in dual diagnosis treatment. Our experienced master’s level substance abuse and mental health clinicians can help you tackle both problems simultaneously. If you only seek treatment for one issue, the other will not only not go away but also intensify. By treating both of them at the same time, we can restore you to full health faster.
At The Willows at Red Oak Recovery, we’re committed to providing mental health conditions and substance abuse. To learn more about the treatment options available, please contact our treatment team at 855.773.0614 or using our online form.
Dual Diagnosis Rehab
Once a mental health practitioner has diagnosed a person’s mental health issues, it’s vital to address the underlying trauma that caused substance abuse head-on. Over seventeen million people found themselves afflicted with mental health problems last year. Of those, four million had a substance abuse problem brought on by their mental health struggles. More than fifty percent of those impaired by this dual diagnosis did not receive the help they needed. If the mental health issues are not addressed, then substance abuse will most likely get worse.
At The Willows, we treat the whole person. A person’s physical and emotional state cannot be made whole again if their mental and spiritual needs are not met. This dual treatment has shown to be more effective than treating one disorder and then the other. They must receive concurrent treatment. Our specialists will evaluate the client’s emotional and mental needs and their physical and nutritional ones. With an individualized treatment plan, we’ll explore all options to assist in their recovery.
Women’s Dual Diagnosis
Our gender-specific treatment programs offer a unique approach to restoring the clients’ health. Women are most often the caretakers of their families, including their spouse and children and their parents and friends. Too many women suffer from the condition commonly known as the disease to please. They try to live up to others’ expectations without taking the appropriate measures to ensure their own health does not suffer. As a result, they may struggle with conditions, such as:
Self-care often means using alcohol and both legal and illegal substances to mask their own pain.
Mental health issues can trigger a need to self-medicate, but it also works the other way around. Sometimes alcohol and substance abuse can trigger a mental health crisis. Underlying factors can include anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Many people are unaware that they can have PTSD. Traumatic events take many forms, and it is not always one single incident that people can point to as the culprit. Although these issues can co-occur, they must be treated as separate conditions.
