Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Dual diagnosis addresses two co-occurring conditions and treats both simultaneously to end the cycle of addiction. When a patient suffers from one or more damaging conditions such as addiction, mental health disorders, or other emotional or psychiatric problems, one condition will often feed off another in a vicious cycle. If only one of the two problems is addressed, the patient cannot achieve full or lasting recovery. Both halves of the equation must be recognized and treated to ensure one problem is not simply substituted for another.
Not every patient requires dual diagnosis, but according to the Journal of the American Medical Association, almost one-third of individuals treated for mental illness simultaneously suffer an addiction to drugs or alcohol. Other statistics reveal that more than half of drug abusers and more than one-third of those addicted to alcohol also suffer from one or more serious mental health disorders.
When treating addiction, it is critical to identify and treat any pre-existing or co-occurring mental health conditions. Every guest at Freeman Recovery Center undergoes an extensive medical evaluation by our medical staff to ensure we account for the guest’s complete wellbeing. Our treatments are tailored to the individual and account for all mental, physical, emotional, and psychiatric needs. If detoxification is required, then upon completion of that step both emotional conditions and substance abuse will be treated at the same time to prevent relapse.
