Mental health conditions can often contribute to or exacerbate substance abuse. As part of our comprehensive approach, we offer psychiatric assessments and treatment to address these conditions while also treating substance abuse.
Prevalence of Co-Occurring Conditions
Research suggests that many people who develop substance use disorders are also diagnosed with mental health disorders, and vice versa. Some of the more common conditions that often coexist with substance use disorder are:
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Full Suite of Services
Our clinical team tailors treatment plans that address both substance abuse and co-occurring conditions, our full suite of services include:
Assessment: Every client undergoes a thorough assessment upon arrival. This assessment evaluates both substance use and potential mental health disorders to identify co-occurring conditions.
Appointments with Our Psychiatrist: If a co-occurring condition is suspected or identified, the client will consult with our staff psychiatrist. This consultation ensures a precise diagnosis and the development of an appropriate treatment plan.
Medication Management: If medication is deemed necessary, our team will administer and monitor it throughout the client's stay. Regular follow-up appointments ensure that the medication is effective, and any side effects are promptly addressed.
Continuous Monitoring: We keep a close eye on our clients' progress. Monitoring isn't just about ensuring the effectiveness of the medication but also about tracking improvements in the overall mental health of the individual. Regular sessions and check-ins provide insight into the client's evolving mental state.
Integrative Therapy: In conjunction with psychiatric care, clients will engage in therapy sessions, group discussions, and other holistic treatments to address both their addiction and mental health needs.
By providing this comprehensive level of care, we see better outcomes such as reduced incidences of relapse. Clients also gain a better understanding of their mental health, how it impacts their addiction, and the tools they need to manage both.
