Dual Diagnosis for Addiction Treatment & Mental Illness

A dual diagnosis means that for many Texas residents, addiction treatment alone may not be enough. Some people are also struggling with mental illness and this can create barriers to successful alcohol & drug rehabilitation. Many people abuse alcohol and drugs in an effort to self-medicate and relieve their struggles with everyday life. Whether it is an anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, mood disorders or any other type of behavioral health disorder, these mental health issues can worsen alcohol abuse and/or drug addiction. Long-term studies have shown that treating one disorder does not necessarily cure the other.

The best forms of substance abuse treatment incorporate a team of counselors, psychiatric specialists and physicians who coordinate a comprehensive and individualized plan for recovery. This approach will use the best in evidence-based treatment by addiction specialists coupled with cognitive behavioral therapy to help address the full spectrum of a person’s addiction. Medical and psychological counseling will help achieve the health of the patient’s mind and body. This complete approach will greatly increase the chance of success in treatment and help a person live a life completely free from drugs and alcohol.

20.2 million American adults have a substance abuse disorder.

7.9 million Americans had both a substance abuse disorder and another mental illness.
