What is Fentanyl Addiction?

Dual diagnosis and co-occurring disorders refer to those with a substance abuse problem coinciding with a mental health disorder. They cover various severe-to-moderate substance abuse disorders as well as mental health struggles that those with addictions typically face.

Substance use disorders include pain killers, alcohol, amphetamines, opioids, and more. On the other hand, mental illness includes anxiety disorders, eating disorders, depression, bipolar disorders, neurodevelopmental disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and more.

Because certain kinds of drug abuse and addiction can lead to psychiatric symptoms, a licensed professional must diagnose the patient. They need to understand pre-existing and substance-induced mental health disorders and whether genetic or environmental factors lead to the problems.

A successful recovery program must address substance abuse and mental health issues.

Sobriety and a healthy, fulfilling life are possible with the right treatment plan.

What are the Other Names for Fentanyl?

Mental illness can change how a patient experiences and copes with addiction, and concurrent treatment is a must for success. According to SAMSHA, those with a mental illness are more likely to abuse drugs or alcohol.

Depending on the drug, addiction can lead to mental health problems such as anxiety. PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) can trigger a dependency on harmful substances.

Why Do People Use Fentanyl?

Understanding how addiction and mental health interact with each other on a patient-by-patient basis is essential. Substance abuse disorders often get treated without considering mental health treatment or vice-versa. When it remains untreated, it’s more difficult for someone to maintain sobriety, even temporarily.

A patient’s mental state is key to their recovery from substance abuse.

Treatment must also address other areas of the patient’s life to pursue full recovery.

For example, involving the patient’s family in the recovery process is critical to the patient’s success. Soul Surgery Rehab works with the patient’s entire landscape, for no one moves in isolation.

SAMSHA confirms that untreated co-occurring disorders can lead to homelessness, incarceration, medical illnesses, suicide, or even early death. Co-occurring disorders can have serious consequences when one or both issues remain untreated.

What Our Clients are Saying

Everyone at that house is awesome!

My son has been at Soul Surgery for over a month now and is making amazing progress, thanks to the wonderful staff. At the first step house he bonded with his therapist Tuesday who is very knowledgeable about veterans and what they go thru and his case manager Kyla. Everyone at that house is awesome. I am very impressed by all aspects of the treatment my son is receiving. He is improving so much and getting the support and being given the tools that are needed to conquer his addiction. I feel like I have my son back! I highly recommend Soul Surgery to anyone that is struggling with addiction.

I loved my time at Soul Surgery!

I was in the program for about 5 months and my life completely changed for the better. I battled my addiction, and learned new coping skills and ways to handle tough situations and make the right decision. From the start everyone was super helpful and caring. Staff knows you by name and no one ever judges you either which is nice. I’m grateful for the time I was there and would highly recommend to anyone! Thanks Soul Surgery!!

I highly recommend Soul Surgery to anyone considering treatment.

I looked into every facility in Arizona before making my decision to go to Soul Surgery. Best decision of my life.
The staff and facilities are amazing. Soul Surgery truly cares about your journey into recovery. I went in a sick individual battling alcohol abuse, depression etc. And got the help I needed above and beyond imaginable. I come from a small community in Colorado where recovery is lacking, and had many doubts on going into treatment. After A few days in Soul Surgery I knew I was in the right place.
