Dual-Diagnosis Treatment in Texas - Recovery Unplugged Texas

Dual-Diagnosis Treatment

Helping Patients Overcome Co-Occurring Disorders

Dual-diagnosis is characterized by the presence of an addiction with a separate co-occurring mental health issue, like depression, anxiety or PTSD. Substance abuse is very often the product of an underlying mental disorder; however, it can also aggravate or even cause mental illness as life in addiction becomes increasingly difficult to manage and withdrawal symptoms take their toll. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Survey on Drug Use and Health, nearly eight million people suffer from some sort of dual-diagnosis disorder. Treatment for dual-diagnosis includes simultaneous yet separate care for substance use and mental disorder. Call Recovery Unplugged today for comprehensive dual-diagnosis treatment in Texas.

Identifying Dual-Diagnosis Cases

The emotionally traumatic nature of substance abuse can make it hard to identify a dual-diagnosis issue. The lines can often get blurred between cause and effect. It’s important that clinicians address each issue separately to provide customized care. After patients have been medically stabilized through medical detox and withdrawal management, they work with their therapists to address the root causes of their substance abuse issues. This helps our mental health professionals get a clearer idea of the relationship between their addiction and corresponding mental health issue. Recovery Unplugged Texas provides compassionate, music-based dual-diagnosis treatment in Texas.

Treating Dual-Diagnosis Disorder

As with general substance abuse treatment, overcoming dual-diagnosis treatment requires in-depth psychotherapy and targeted counseling. Patients must be stabilized through medically supervised detox to ensure they’re healthy enough to move through the rest of treatment. After detox, patients need long-term psychiatric counseling and group therapy to assess the scope and severity of their mental health issues. In some cases, medications may be recommended to facilitate emotional stabilization. Once patients leave their program, it is highly recommended that they continue their therapy with an experienced and qualified professional.
