Treatment for Mental Health & Substance Abuse

Dual diagnosis is when there is a mental health condition alongside a substance use disorder. If not treated together, this can complicate recovery, as the presence of one can exacerbate the symptoms of the other. For instance, someone grappling with depression might resort to alcohol as a coping mechanism, which in turn, may deepen their depressive episodes. Recognizing the intricate interplay between these disorders is central to the comprehensive treatment approach at New Found Life.

Simultaneous Treatment

Addressing only one disorder, like substance abuse, without attending to an underlying anxiety disorder, can be akin to fixing a leaky boat’s hole while ignoring another, leading to suboptimal recovery outcomes. By not addressing both disorders, the untreated condition can trigger a stifled recovery or a relapse.
