Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Addiction is only a part of the problem for people with a dual diagnosis. Their mental health issues can interfere with recovery if they do not receive help for the underlying causes of their addiction. Our Dual Diagnosis treatment program near Jacksonville, Florida provides therapists who specialize in treating specific mental health disorders and their co-existing substance abuse issues. A mental health disorder can make people more vulnerable to addiction and also put them at a higher risk for relapse. Dual diagnosis treatment is necessary to treat both the symptoms of their disorder and their reliance on drugs to cope with it.

PTSD and Addiction

Our Mental Health and Addiction Treatment Center is uniquely well equipped to help people suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Substance Use Disorder. As a Dual Diagnosis Treatment Facility, we specialize in treating addiction and the underlying causes that lead to its development.

Bipolar Disorder and Addiction

People with bipolar disorder often seek alcohol to self-medicate their extreme mood swings. Heavy drinking is closely linked to the disorder with nearly 50 percent of bipolar patients struggling with alcoholism. Drinking can complicate this mental illness and make symptoms grow more severe over time.

Anxiety and Addiction

Doctors may prescribe benzodiazepines to patients with anxiety without considering the addictive potential of these medications. Anti-anxiety drugs can lead to dependency for many people and over time frequent use can actually worsen their symptoms.

Depression and Addiction

Symptoms of depression can cause people to drink as a method of temporarily improving their mood. Alcoholism and depression have a way of reinforcing one another and creating a cycle that becomes difficult to escape.

Stress and Addiction

People fight stress in different ways and substance abuse can be one of the most destructive responses to stress. Drugs or alcohol can numb a person’s stress and emotions for a period of time but dependency will lead to many negative consequences. Learning healthy ways to manage stress can improve mental health and prevent relapse for people who have developed an addiction.
