Soul Surgery is a premier dual diagnosis treatment center in Scottsdale, Arizona, that assists individuals with co-occurring disorders.
What is Dual Diagnosis?
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.
Who Has Co-Occurring Disorders?
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) found that roughly 17 percent of U.S. adults have co-occurring disorders.
This percentage equates to approximately 8 million people in need of help.
Soul Surgery Rehab understands the challenges of treating co-occurring disorders and is committed to helping patients recover and maintain sobriety.
Why Choose Dual Diagnosis Treatment
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.
Customized Patient Dual Diagnosis
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
