Dual Diagnosis - Depression & Anxiety Impacts Drug & Alcohol Addictions

Addressing the Core of Addiction with Dual Diagnosis

SpringBoard Recovery understands that often times, a person who has a drug or alcohol addiction also has a mental health issue that they may be dealing with as well. There are many people who are addicts who also have depression, anxiety, or another type of psychological disorder. One of the reasons that people turn to drugs and alcohol is as a way to deal with these other underlying medical conditions.

For Depression or Anxiety, There’s Hope.

It can be quite difficult for a family to try and find meaningful treatment for their loved ones who are suffering from addiction as well as a mental disorder. Often, a family will only find treatment in the form of a short hospital stay. While a short stay in the hospital will treat the issue right then, often the addict will return to their drug of choice not long after they have left the hospital.

At SpringBoard Recovery we believe that a short stay in a hospital is insufficient for treatment to be successful. This is shown in statistics of people who come out of their short term stay at the hospital and return to abusing drugs time and time again.

In order for treatment to be effective a person needs an environment that is personal. The clinical staff at SpringBoard Recovery strives to provide personal and individualized care for all of their patients.

Assessing the Individual

When admitted at SpringBoard Recovery an admission specialist will interview the individual to better understand their specific circumstances. The admission specialist will discuss their medical history and their illness with them. The initial assessment is crucial in determining which program is best suited for the individual. At this time we will also note whether there are any preexisting mental health issues that also need to be addressed during treatment.

An Individualized Treatment Program

In addition to simply treating compulsive addictive behavior, SpringBoard Recovery Center focuses on underlying mental health disorders. We don’t subscribe to a one-size-fits all methodology of treatment, which is what makes our programs so effective.

We understand that each person who walks through our doors is unique and because of this, creating a plan for them may be different than the plan created for someone else. It is important to recognize the individual needs of each of our patients in order to provide them with the best possible service and to give them the best chance at a full recovery.

Luckily, most mental illnesses are treatable, so there is hope for dealing with the mental illness if the proper treatment is provided. The most important thing to note is that there is never a quick fix for a mental illness, but there are treatment plans that will work.

Accurately assessing the individual is such an important component, because it sets the stage for treatment: and a comprehensive, individualized treatment program that is properly targeted, will absolutely see positive results.  Armed with the proper program targeted at the entire person (mind, body and soul), we’re confident you can adopt a holistic lifestyle free of addiction.

During treatment at SpringBoard Recovery a person will also be provided with education about their diagnosis and the symptoms of it. Social skills training is also an important aspect of the treatment plan. Perhaps one of the most important parts of treatment will be the relapse prevention training that is provided. This will provide the patient with the tools that they need in order to avoid temptations when they re-enter the real world. Patients will also learn the coping skills that they need in order to manage their mood and anxiety.

Our mental health is very important and at times a person who is suffering from a mental health disorder will need help with dealing with the symptoms that it may cause.

If you are suffering from a mental illness and/or a drug or alcohol addiction, we can help. Our staff at SpringBoard Recovery will provide you with the care and the treatment that you need to cope with your health issues.

We are here to help you through the process of learning how to live with your mental health issues and recover from any substance abuse, so feel free to contact us at your convenience with any questions.
